    Thumbs up Drinks to avoid - advice from the wise

    We are within days of Xmas and then the New Year celebrations. And between us we must know every drink to avoid. And after a bad night on the pop, one tries to forget.

    But try to remember for the benefit of those with their booze-ups tomorrow or on "Black Friday" (18th) that might be about to make the mistakes you have already made.

    So, what have been the drinks that made you really bad? I mean really, really bad.

    What would you advise the rest of the world to avoid?

    (With stories would be good. So we can at you. )

    Guinness and tomato juice looks like everyones reaction to the idea.
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    Blue bols, orange juice, lager, cider and vodka served as a pint. Or pints, rather.

    Just the memory of that bright green liquid makes me

    I blame the orange juice.
    Where are we going? And what’s with this hand basket?

    Avoid the shorts and you'll be full up before it gets too bad.

    Easy.

    We used to do 2 shots Drambuie, 1 shot Cointreau in a glass, light it, stick your hand over to extinguish and then sniff the fumes and knock it back.

    Remember doing this one time after a heavy session, violently vomiting all over the middle of the table and my fellow drinkers and then slumping down and pulling the table and all its contents on top of me.

    Baileys and creme de menthe.

    Any Southampton alumni will remember a juicy Lucy from clowns. Another bright green drink, insanely alcoholic served in a pint.

    The only two things I've ever drunk and immediately thrown back up into the glass.

    I remember a bar in Alderley Edge used to do a drink called 'Baby Guts'.

    It was in a shot glass and cunningly mixed out of stuff that didn't mix to resemble, well, baby guts really.

    It was more of a texture than a taste.

    It actually tasted like mint-choc-chip ice cream. It had a shocking aftertaste of vomit though. Come to think of it, that might have been the vomit.
