Having had my fair share of drinking sprees in my lifetime, I can (semi-shamefully) admit that there were times that I could barely remember the things that happened the previous night. There are also instances that I choose not to remember: some of those wild and crazy antics just make me feel ashamed of myself (the reasons for starting a hangover cure company are all becoming clear now, right!?)
So I end up charging these antics to experience and vow never to do those things EVER again. But, human as I am, I still find myself making the same mistakes over and over 🙁
The Cost of Getting Drunk
As I, and many other young people, quickly find out: aside from the hangovers, drinking can harm not only your health but your pocket as well. This is especially true if you are going to spend a night partying in one of the most expensive clubs in your area. Unless you’re heading to a friends house party, you should expect to shell out some (or a lot, even) of your hard earned cash or a portion of your allowance (if you happen to be a rich kid with generous folks).
The problem with this is that we’re not all “ballers”, so we have to figure out ways to have as much fun as your meager “fun times” budget allows.
Here is a beginner’s guide to low-priced liquor that you can buy should the need for cheap booze arise… which is always:
You can get a bottle of Sobeiski for a measly $20. Svedka bottles may range between $20 and $25. I do not like this that much but most of my friends swear by it. Take note, the brands to avoid include Absolut, Skyy and Grey Goose.
You can get Cruzan and Don Q for around $20 per bottle while Appleton sells for $25 a bottle. Try to avoid Bacardi.
Both Kraken and Sailor Jerry’s sell for $25-$30 per bottle.
There are plenty of liqueurs available in the market that would suit varying preferences of different individuals. I highly recommend Bols which is very easy on the pocket at only $10 per liter.
You can choose between Benchmark and Evan Williams Black Label. Both sell for only $20 per bottle.
New Amsterdam is quite affordable at $20 while Beefeater may range between $25 and $30 a bottle.
The cheapest Tequila you can find is usually Lunazul at $15-$20. You may also grab a bottle of Jimador or Espolon and pay $20-$25 per bottle. Avoid brands like Patron, Jose Cuervo, Sauza and anything that is not 100% from Agave.
Note: The prices indicated are for 1.75L bottles which are a popular option for college kids. The exception is tequila, which is more expensive, so the prices mentioned are for 750ml bottles.
If you want to get drunk without going broke, this list will get you there. Aside from being cheap, they are also the classiest options given the budget limitations.
Whatever your choice of drink may be, always remember to drink in moderation. If you want to keep your sanity, dignity and budget intact, the best way to make it happen is to drink responsibly!
Have You Heard About The “Miracle Hangover Cure” that Wired magazine, New Scientist and the NY Post are all talking about?
It’s called Dihydromyricetin and it will change the way you consume alcohol for ever! Sobur, our hangover cure supplement, uses dihydromyricetin (read more about Dihydromyricetin here) as our key ingredient, along with several other essential ingredients that replenish & restore key vitamins and minerals the body looses when you drink alcohol.
