Ahhh, Brooks.

He popped up in a recent book I was reading. I had to do a double-take.

When I was a teenager, we raided my parent's alcohol cabinet and filled a Tupperware rolling pin with a little of everything. My buddies and I drank that and decided we wanted more. We bought a big bottle of Jack Daniels and drank way too much of it.
I went into the bathroom and got sick, then proceeded to pass out while sitting on the sink and knocked over a bottle of Brute aftershave, which spilled all over me.
To this day I can't smell Brute or any whiskey without getting sick to my stomach.

Any whiskey.

The very smell of Southern Comfort makes me gag. One time on an airplane, a stranger next to me ordered it. I pulled out a $20 bill and told that drinks are on me, as long as its not S.C. He took me up on that.

Cheap brandy. Worst of non-flavoured spirits. A whole generation hates brandy here probably because of these.

Anisy-fennely liqueurs with that killer finish, posed as absinthe (Tabu Classic, Absinthe Supreme and such). Honestly, they are more disgusting than non-louching brands.

Mixto tequilas, especially below añejo.

Any liqueur made of cheap rectified spirit. There's no way hiding its stink.

Sweet white vermouth drunk neat.

Unicum, an herbal bitter exported to the U.S. as 'Zwack Liqueur'. That version may be better, but still wortless, as I imagine.

Anything else commercially distilled in Hungary so far, except for premium pálinka (un-aged fruit brandy with a distinct fruit odor), but it's not among my favourites either.

I don't hate tequila, in fact I find it quite tasty. However, last night I think that I proved to both Amber and I that it hates me.

I'll stick to less dangerous booze, like Absinthe and Gin.

It was fun to watch though. Apparently in coming to work a few hours later than normal I missed out on margarita cake...would have been a nice hair of the dog. :3869-sadbanana:

I was with you up till there. I love a glass of Dolin blanc with an orange twist. Usually have it on the rocks, but I'd drink it neat, chilled. So tasty.

I like tequila much, when it comes to 100% agave :) I could find a pleasant reposado for as cheap as 20 USD and now I'm going for some decent ones.

Well, I forgot to add that it's the only one on the list that I don't actually hate, only I cannot drink it :pirate: Perhaps Martini&Rossi Bianco ruined the image of sweet white vermouths for me. I haven't tried others since.

I love tequila too, but rarely drink it, 'cause a human just shouldn't!

M&R just about anything could ruin one's taste for that type of beverage.
