My utter hatred of that ?drink? stems from my first experience with it. I was in my early 20s at a crowded Mardi Gras house party, literally stuck in a corner in the kitchen because the house was so crowded. I was pounding rum and cokes when my friend came by with a full bottle of Jager and offered me a swig. I drank it and was immediately turned off by the black licorice flavor, so gave it back. Kept pounding rum and cokes, and he came back about an hour later with still a mostly full bottle because no one would drink it with him (smart folks.) Already highly intoxicated and making poor decisions, I agreed to ?help,? and proceeded to trade the bottle back and forth with him until it was empty. Shortly after, my then girlfriend decided she was ready to leave; I attempted to move for the first time in hours and soon discovered just how fucked I was. I surrendered my keys to my gf, was dragged into my car where I slumped with my head against the window for the 45 minute ride home. We were 2 minutes from home when I managed a rough arrangement of words meant to convey my urgent demand that she stop and let me ?reverse the drinking process.? She did, but by the time she could get to my side of the car and open the door, the Jager returned in glorious fashion all over my floorboard and shoes? then a Max & Erma?s parking lot? then the parking lot of our apartment? then the living room? then the bathroom? aaaaand finally the bedroom where, in tears, I prayed to God for the sweet release of death. It was years before I could even look at that green bottle without my stomach knotting.stroopwafel said:Oh no I absolutely love Jagermeister. To me it tastes like syrupy spice nut. A great drink in winter with a strong coffee.hanselthecaretaker said:Xprimentyl said:Ah, booze, glorious booze. Rarely have I met a one I don?t like.
For hard liquors, I?m a vodka and gin guy, favoring to mix them with soda or tonic with a squeeze of lime, but I also like the occasional whisky and 7-Up. For beers, I drink it just infrequently enough that I?m a cheap date; Budweiser or Bud Light get the job done. But when I?m feeling fancy, Stella Artois, Yuengling (which has limited availability in the northeastern US) and Louisiana?s infamous Abita. I steer clear of most IPAs and anything overly-hoppy. For wine, gimme a cabernet? or any wine from the cellar.
Liquor I dislike? Most schnapps, especially cinnamon schnapps; not a fan of the sweet stuff. But the worst liquor? Jagermeister. Jesus, that shit is evil; tastes like something dredge from the very bottom of a septic tank in hell and thrice filtered through sasquatch?s pubic hair immediately following a 5 mile jog during which he was wearing plastic underwear. I think that?s why it?s generally popular with 20-something-year-old bro-dudes; along with its ?acquired? taste, recovering from the brain damage after ingesting copious amounts of it is a rite of passage.
Agreed on the Jager. Absolutely disgusting. Might as well be drinking liquified potpourri after it?s been dipped in ever tar pool in Black Gulch and The Rotten pissed and farted out the remains of a millennia worth of fallen undead souls in it.
Myself, I?ve always been a bourbon fan and am not very picky about it, but also enjoy a few microbrews. Two Hearted is usually a go-to when out to dinner.
