Beer Before Liquor . . . Eat a Dick

In the course of my long and distinguished drinking “career,” I’ve never been a believer in the whole “Beer before liquor, never sicker; liquor before beer, never fear” rule(s). I much prefer “Never too much of one thing,” or “All things in moderation . . . as opposed to, say, mixed together in a funnel.”

The pirate / birthday adventure was a good time. More on that later (with PICTURES as we found our camera).

No, see, I’m here to put forth a drinking theory. You understand that part of the problem with people getting sick from drinking tequila is that, besides drinking a lake of it, tequila has a very specific taste. Like rum or gin. Vodka (and Everclear) don’t, which is why I can still drink those comfortably even though they’ve rocked me in the past. But what if you mixed your alcohols in such a way that the flavors / auras cancelled one-another out? How do you think 2 ½ Junebugs, two Red Stripes, a Bacardi Limon concoction, and an indeterminate whiskey and Seven would go down? I’ll tell you: Surprisingly well. Seriously, I might have been generous with the ice on those drinks, but I had no discernable hangover the next morning and no lingering flavors.

Atlanta? Bring it.

(EDITOR’S NOTE: This is what’s wrong with my drinking career . . . I can’t even get the Golden Rule right. Thanks, my commenting friends. I had it right, but typed it wrong.)

  1. I always thought it was liquor TO beer, never fear, beer TO liquor, never sicker.  Isn’t that the opposite of yours?  If so, that explains a lot.  To someone.

  2. I’m impressed that you can drink so heavily and still bounce back.  Bummed I’ll be missing the party, but please drink a lot and dance with your cute baby girl for me!

  3. Look, I talk a good game with all the drinking. I feel like I can hold my own. But it’s not a drink-to-get-drunk thing, like when I was, um . . . 18?

    On the way to the beach, I was telling Mr. Glory Hole about the liver-torturing ol’ days and how I couldn’t do that today. Of course, Mr. Glory Hole was the one with the pocket full of beer bottle tops before midnight.

  4. Limon is the cancelling agent.  Drink a couple of those with 7up and pineapple you’re good to go all night.  Then again, i’ve been old enough to drink for 2 years.  but i’ve made the absolute MOST of those 2 years.

  5. "Beer before liquor, never be sicker. Liquor before beer, you’re in the clear.”

    So we’ve established that it obviously doesn’t fucking matter, right?

  6. You’re officially my new hero.  Because of the copious beverage consumption and also because I ahd TOTALLY forgotten about Limon!  It’s like a whole new world of wasted has just laid itself bare at my feet.

  7. Thanks, Mizz Ire. I, too, forgot the Limon as I left almost an entire fifth of it at the beach. Dammit.

    Oh, and I’m editing this post because C-dub and ‘stella are correct. Where did I pick up the “after,” for fuck’s sake?

  8. What’s going on in Atlanta, is this some sort of drinking olympics?

  9. AP:  Kind-of.  It’s the regional blogger Meetup.  Sadly, we are to competitive drinking what Bode Miller was to the downhill in Torino.  And for the opposite reason(s).
