I ran with a pretty tame crowd as a high schooler. We considered it a wild night if  we’d wrapped a musical theater production and all piled into someone’s basement to watch the entire Star Wars trilogy on VHS and surreptitiously make out with each other. I liked it that way, and never sought out anything more raucous, so the first time anyone actually offered me a drink was in college. And when I say, “offered,” I mean, “forced me to consume through endless, irritating cajoling.” My housemates heard that I’d never been drunk and insisted that we do a shot together. It was some vile concoction called Black Haus, and knocking it back nearly made me gag. They pushed for another shot, but I stood my ground. I loved them, but I wasn’t going to guzzle a substance that tasted like blackberry-flavored cough syrup to prove it. Keep reading »

Rick Santorum suspended his GOP presidential campaign yesterday, but we all know more anti-gay, anti-woman asshattery is probably still forthcoming. Who would be surprised if he ends up with his very own gig on Fox News a la Sarah Palin? Not us! Obviously we’re going to need a good amount of booze to deal with such a turn of events and that’s why we’re thrilled a NYC bar has debuted a frothy brown beverage that it’s calling the Santorum. As the sicker-minded amongst us are aware, “Santorum” is sex columnist Dan Savage’s name for “the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.”

The $8 Santorum cocktail at the Brooklyn bar Pacific Standard, however, is a feast for more delicate palettes: Baileys Irish Cream, orange-flavored vodka, Angostura bitters, and Godiva dark chocolate flakes. Sounds mmm-mmm-good. Perhaps we’ll knock back a few on Election Night? [Slate]

Every year, my sister and I go to Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago. For years I have tried to to explain the concept of “carnival” to my American friends. I’m slowly understanding that the idea is ridiculously foreign: replace cotton candy for endless top-shelf liquor, Ferris wheels for huge trucks blasting music throughout the entire city and lame whack-a-mole games for half-naked women and men “wining” on one another in elaborate beaded/feathered costumes. It just seems absurd for those used to a traditional American-styled carnival and, when I sit back and think about it, thousands of people parading and dancing through the streets does seem a little crazy. But that is precisely what makes me return annually: I know that I’m getting into something so ridiculously unconventional that anything can happen. Keep reading »

  • Daniel Radcliffe used to be drunk was filming “Harry Potter” scenes. In the British celeb mag Heat, the sober alcoholic confessed that “I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes.” Daniel also says he drank “nightly” and was very adept at hiding it. He’s so lucky he got control of his addictions at such a young age. [People]

“Trying to ruin someone else’s life is a poor way to address one’s alcohol and self-control problems.”

This is true. But is this really the most intelligent — to say nothing of compassionate — thing for an advice columnist to say to someone whose friend was possibly date raped?

No, Dear Prudence at Slate.com, it was not.

Rachel Maddow isn’t just good at looking cute and making politicians look like idiots. She is also an amateur mixologist. (Good skill to have if that whole MSNBC hosting gig falls through.) Last night on “Late Night,” Rachel taught Jimmy Fallon how to do “pickleback” shots, which is one shot each of Jameson and pickle juice. “It’s a little weird,” she says. The word she’s looking for is revolting. [I find them delicious, actually. -- Editor] But I’d still drink them, because Rachel Maddow made them. And also, there’s something in pickle juice that makes it a good hangover cure. I’m sold. [Hulu.com]

GIRL liquor photo

A reader snapped a pic of something freaky at the Zurich airport: GIRL, a lychee strawberry liquor “for women only.”  Let me tell you something: if you bring a big purple bottle of fruity liquor to a party, you’re not getting invited back. Unless that party is the first night of Pride Week or a sleepover with 15-year-olds watching “Sex and the City 2.” You fail, booze marketers.

Science! It’s a wonderful thing. For instance, thanks to science, we now know that 3 out of 4 photos that British people post on Facebook are taken while drunk. A study done by MyMemory.com polled 1,781 Brits who admitted that around 75 percent of the photos they were tagged in were taken while under the influence. Said Rebecca Huggler of MyMemory: “The fact that over three quarters of the average Brits’ Facebook photos are under the influence of alcohol was certainly interesting to find out, particularly when you consider what this says about us as a nation enjoying a drink or two!”

Or, it may just mean that we’re more inclined to let our guards down and let our friends snap photos of us when we’ve tossed back a couple. Tell us: Are most of your Facebook photos taken while tipsy? [Newslite]
