    What do people find are the best drinks for getting you tipsy with no hangover.

    I'm guessing it's clear spirits with lemonade or maybe even champagne or sparkling wine?

    Not very manly I know but I want to give up the beers for a while but still want to go out and drink

    Why not just have 1-2 beers instead of a load of them?

    I never really get hangovers because I just sober myself up before I go to sleep. That way, I can still drink whatever I want. Try it :D

    Never drink without eating properly, and don't combine drinking with drugs ;)

    Pro Tip: Drink more water and get plenty of rest.

    A pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls should do the job.

    +1 to that.
    Before I developed a taste for beer I used to drink Bulmers all the time and never really got hangovers.
    (found it harsh/acidic on the stomach though).

    Seagull Wine

    Invented by the Inuits to warm themselves on cold Arctic nights, seagull wine is the result of stuffing a dead seagull into a bottle (whole or in parts), adding water, corking the container, and letting it sit in the sun until the concoction is sufficiently fermented.

    Baby Mouse Wine

    Used as a cure for who-knows-what in parts of SE Asia, baby mouse wine is unfortunately pretty much what it sounds like. It’s as simple to make as seagull wine. Simply put a bunch of 2- or 3-day-old mice—live—into a bottle of rice wine. Seal it back up and let it sit for a year or so.

    German beers, they don't have those weird chemicals you find a pint of p1ss aka Bud.

    I started drinking whiskey a couple of years ago. I can still get a savage head the next morning if I drink enough of it, but I won't have made ten trips to the jacks over the course of the night.

    If you can remember to drink a pint of water before bed, it will help.

    I'll be flaked for this, but just get a pint of Guinness down your beak and you will be fine. About three or four of them, home for the feed and rest and hey presto...you'll shat your pants! ;)

    A bottle (or two) of Lambrusco wine. Delish.

    A hangover is caused by a combination of the toxic by-product of alcohol metabolism (acetaldehyde), dehydration, and Vitamin A, B (particularly B6) and C depletion caused by the chemical action of alcohol on your system. The symptoms are usually a dry mouth, nausea, fatigue, dizziness and headache and are caused by a combination of these factors.

    Apart from the obvious toxic effects, you should realise you're suffering the effects of a mild overdose of a depressant drug and your nerves are reacting accordingly, and you have also flushed a signifnicant quantity of vitamins and nutrients from your system causing a degree of metabolic shock that your body is struggling to compensate against. This is why hangover symptoms often include disorientation and "the jitters".

    Some drinks give you worse hangovers than others due to the actions of impurities called Congeners. While it's the ethyl alcohol (ethanol) that gets you drunk, amyl alcohol, butyl alcohol, methyl alcohol, propyl alcohol, and isopropyl alcohol is also found in most drinks to varying degrees, and the concentration of these Congeners will go a long way to determining the severity of the hangover.

    Vodka and gin (clear liquors) are generally lower in congeners than whisky, rum and bourbon, due to the filtering process involved, and hence usually give a less intense hangover. Unfortunately the congeners also give flavor, smell and appearance to alcohol.

    Another contributor to the hangover is the "freshness" of the alcohol since the natural oxidation product of ethanol is also acetaldehyde. Finishing off an already open bottle of red, or drinking beer that's been in the boot of your car for a week, will provide you with a ready made supply of acetaldehyde so you don't have to wait for your liver to make it in order to have a really good hangover.

    But, where's the tipsy in that?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,137 ✭✭✭44leto


    Its a simple formula really. The flatter and whiter the drink the less of a hangover.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,327 ✭✭✭Sykk


    Why do you have to get "tipsy"? Drink something you like the taste of, and not 10 of them. Then you won't have a hangover.

    guinness. never gives me a hangover but makes me lay some dense cables of black tar


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 315 ✭✭happyman81


    Everytime you have three pints, have a pint of water. Done.

    Drink eight pints of water before going on the beer or else just drink the odd mineral in between drinks, you won't feel drunk and won't be hungover, proven fact!
