tequila shots? Wasp, you got to travel a bit. tequila shots are for gringos and drunken brits .

we sip tequila as an apetiser.......have it with a small red drink called sangrita (blood litterally).

and cuba libre is to get drunk seriously, get a couple of mexican mates, and the cuba libre will be the equivalent of a quadruple of what you get in a pub. , and you dont only have 3

I know I know but being a pom, all you get in most clubs and bars around the country is so vile if you don't neck it in seconds, you'll regret it! Mind you, you'll regret it either way the stuff they sell!

lol, know what you mean. honest, i have never ever had a tequila in the uk. never will.

actually, just discovered a nice rum from martinica. beats bacardi. 55% alcohol vs 38% it will destroy my braincells

Rhum Blanc Agricole. best discovery ever.

I remember someone stuffing a bottle of Bacardi 151 in my face one night at a party many moons ago and it actually had a metal gauze on it to stop it catching alight!!!

Someone told me of a bar in London (Covent Garden) called navaho joes with over 200 tequilas or something, must be something worthwhile in there!

Jacinto: Try the Jamaican rum. The real stuff. Can't remember where in England to get it now. I think it might be Oddbins. But they do the normal type you would expect and a cream. They are over 100% proof. (Don't ask me how you can get over 100% but there you go) The old Jamaicans used to drink this straight. I think most of them went blind! Lol.

Wasp: My daughter used to run a vodka bar in Clacton on sea. Right on the seafront 100's of different vodka's from around the world. Some of them are better than paint stripper for those odd jobs around the house.

blimy, 100%

where i grew up, the homeless that go for alchohol (alcoholics, really), would buy the alcohol you get on a drugstore (96%) and drink it

100% err, too much for me, but thanks, may try it
