What's the worst drink you've had?

Post by DanH »

Following on from Ben's thread about people's favourite tipples, I thought it would be interesting to go the opposite direction and see what we consider to be the worst drink we've ever tried.

For me it would be a Latvian liqueur called Black Balsam. I was dared to try it once and foolishly agreed, thinking how bad can a drink be. 20 minutes later my throat still felt like I had swallowed boiling tar.

A " milkshake " in a cafe near Crianlarich Scotland about 41 years ago that was made by just adding strawberry flavoured squash to milk also a bottle of Polish Liquor of some sort that my Polish neighbour brought back from Poland for me,at least I think it was Liquor ,may have been furniture polish ,anyway was handy for stripping paint off doors etc !

A Hurricane at the Hard Rock Cafe, it was absolutely revolting and I was completely inebriated after drinking 1/10th of it so I tipped it down the toilet because if you drank it all you got to keep the glass :lol:

Czech Absinthe. Camp UKAR 2010. A good night followed, though!

Other than that, I really cannot be doing with tequila.

When I had only recently turned 18 and was new to clubbing etc, I was once given two 'Flatliner' shots and told "they're not that bad, down them both" - so I did. The following 20 minutes were some of the worst minutes of my life. I vow never to drink one of them again.

(A Flatliner is 1/2 Sambuca, 1/2 Tequila with a line of Tabasco sauce that floats in the middle of the shot) :sick:

Other than that, there have plenty of "sh*t mixes" drunk whilst at university. They're basically mixing bowls with you pour random drinks into to make a disgusting concoction of alcohol. We got into the tradition of naming them in our flat based on the colour, with the worst I think we're ever done being "Somali Bathing Soup" and it turned out disgusting brown and tasted like death.

I often find that the dirty pints from Ring of Fire or whatever often taste quite nice! It's just the getting them down between the "Weeeeeeee like to drink with Ben..." and "3, 2, 1" that's the issue...! Exception being when someone puts white wine into the mix :sick:

On the subject of dirt cheap booze, if you buy White Ace and mix it (about 3:1) with blackcurrant squash... it's surprisingly nice! :shock:

I can definitely think of a few over the last year:

Frosty Jacks/Pulse, irrefusably cheap though. Gave up on mixing it with squash because the taste hardly changed and it just made me feel like I'd not drank very much so I ended up drinking more and chaos followed.

A triple shot of Captain Morgans did nothing but bad deeds.

I heard a pretty funny story of a friend who thought it was a great idea to buy a vodka and coke, plus two vodka shots and pour them into one glass. What resulted was a 2:1 Vodka:Coke ratio in the small glasses that clubs give you and a drink that was just revolting.

But if there's one thing I will refuse to drink, it's Strongbow. Vile stuff.

Cuprinol! As a result of a bit of a mishap at work, I had to drink charcoal and needed running shoes for a few days afterwards, but I ain't got Dry-rot!

The name escapes me, but a bizarre 'Caribbean' branded drink, which probably had enough sugar to turn you instantly diabetic. In addition, the recent Blueberry Red Bull offering.
