Alcoholic Drinks from yesteryear

    What alcoholic drinks can you remember from the past that you can't get anymore? I'll start the ball rolling with Hudson Blue Cider. I think it was made by Guinness. Anyway it wasn't very good as it was super harsh on the stomach.

    Remember Firstenberg coming out on tap all over the place and it was the strongest beer on tap you could get, 4 pints and you were on your ear :)

    I worked in a pub during the 80's so the ones that stick in my mind that you don't see any more are McArdles, Babycham and Snowball. That said, I'm very rarely in pubs so maybe they're still around, somewhere.

    Dressed PIMMS or Dressed Orange were popular drinks back then too. PIMMS still exists and so does Club Orange, of course, but I'm not sure if people are still frosting glasses for them and adding cream and a straw-speared cherry.

    McArdles still about , a country pub near to me still stock for the few regulars who drink it ( large bottle) it’s not bad

    Thunderbird. That stuff was rocket fuel. It would perfectly fit into those towel roller things in the school bathroom. If there was a school disco that night, you’d bring your drink to school with you that day and when the last bell went, you’d hide it in the towel roller. Fast forward to that night and you’d prance into school all dressed up with no need for a bag.

    The teachers never copped where we hid it but one night one of the girls got sick all over the headmistress and that was the end of the school discos.

    We used always get flagons of 'Boss' cider from an off licence in Moore Street. May aswell drink vinegar.
    Anyone remember that stuff?

    Satzenbrau

    It's actually still available in cans! Had to Google it there because I hadn't seen it for years. I still remember the ad from the 80s. Wasn't it aimed at women?
    "Lager with a difference... Satzenbrau"

    That’s the one that had an ad saying more of the sugar had been turned to alcohol!

    I loved Woody's, I used to mix an orange one and a lemon one together to make a boozy rock shandy! :) Bacardi Rigo was another alcopop I liked back in the day too.
