Everclear! (95%)

Thu Feb 09, 2006 7:29 am

If most of you alcoholics didn't already know, there is a drink sold in the US called Everclear that is 95% alcohol.

Now as a UK-based alcoholic, I would like to purchase a bottle for....errrr....research reasons....Does anyone know of any UK websites that I can get some from? I don't really want to buy from an American website because I'm 18 and I think they might get a bit touchy, or probably just not allow me to!

Any help would be great, I know most of you enjoy your alcohol so this is a good place to ask!

Please do so entirely. I haven't dealt with that many

alcoholics

but the few whose ruined lives I have seen reassured me: alcohol is best consumed moderately. A 95% drink can very, very easily be very, very dangerous to your health. Don't be a fool, don't get anywhere near Korsakoff's syndrome which can render you completely helpless in mental derangement. Or do you fancy being almost completely unable to eat without someone telling you to?

Can't seem to find it via Google, but I've heard of a magical liquor called Diesel that's a trifle stronger. Personally, I can't see a need for either. Even Bacardi 151 seems overkill.

I've only had it myself after being diluted. Usually used around here to make Jungle Juice, which tastes like fruit punch but has about the same strength as vodka. Crazy shit if you don't know what you are doing. Anyone who drinks that stuff straight up is just asking to get sick.

It is ridiculous, a good rule of thumb for everclear is 2 shots at the most at a time and then wait awhile to see how bad it f*cks you up. However everclear is a better thing to mix in to make jungle juice or other party punches since it is cheaper to use than vodka. Just be careful to not make the alcohol content to high otherwise you'll send people to the hospital.

don't go into that stuff, if you want to get f**ked up, drink more vodka - or rubbing alcohol for that matter...

This stuff tastes like sh!t, and you probably won't remember much, so stay away...

My advice is just to take a week off and go to Amsterdam, there you'll find more 'legal' alternatives to alcohol and still be able to remember what happened.

That stuff's not healthy to drink straight. I've taken care of at least six patients that came into the ER puking blood. If you have an undiagnosed ulcer or drink it on an empty stomach, it could eat right through your stomach lining.

I tried it once a few years ago and my stomach immediately cramped up so bad that was on the floor doubled up in pain.

Doesn't it even say on the bottle to ALWAYS mix it with a non-alcoholic drink before consumption...hell there's even a WARNING FLAMMABLE label on the bottle.

BTW if you want something strong that will fuck you up get some absinth. I think they should have it in Europe. Typically between 70-80% alcohol plus a hallucinogen. Tastes not bad either.

Here's another thing that got me really drunk once. Take like 3-4 tequila shots and light em on fire. Caramelize some sugar with a spoon using the fire. Drop caramel sugar in the shot. Some tequila will spill out. Drink while its on fire using a small straw(drink fast or the fire will burn through the straw!!). The leftovers and spillage sniff up using the straw. Yea it burns your nose but it hits the spot HARD.

True story.

I made some jungle juice with Everclear for a party I threw about 10 years ago. I added various fruits in the drink (Grapes, peaches, watermelon). I had about 20 people show up and ALL of them passed out shitfaced drunk in my house. I had friends sleeping in the hallways, kitchen, closets and even the bathroom.

One good thing about Everclear is that it is a good drink for those watching there weight. Just one shot will take care of you for the evening. Best of all, no calories or fat. It's a great way to loose weight and still get f--ked up.

It isn't that great of stuff to drink.

If you want something that tastes better, and will whoop your ass a whole lot better, just buy one of the 99's.

99 Berries
99 Apples
99 Banannas
99 Oranges

Those are the ones I know about. They are 99 proof, and fun to do shots of. And it's cheaper than Everclear. Tastes like the above mentioned flavors, too  Smile

Wow....everclear. That brings back memories.

Come back with me boys and girls, to my sophomore year in college (spring '03). I had only recently discovered drinking and had only gotten tipsy-I had not really been "drunk" as i know it today. (this story is also aviation related)

It was a saturday night and we were over in Wisconsin at my friend Matt's house. I had driven over with 3 friends and we were just hangin out. They had some jello shots (everclear + jello mix) left over from the night before and so I had two of those. One of my friends said they would drive so i was like "ahh fuck it i can drink what I want". So then I had a beer and another jello shot.

I was feelin pretty good by now and I noticed the half full bottle of everclear sitting on top of the counter. Next to it was a thing full of gatorade powder, and I had the bright idea to mix the two of them.

So I took a regular 12 oz glass and dumped quite a bit of the gatorade powder in. Next I opened up the everclear, and with all of my friends smirking while they watched me, I filled it up about 1/3 of the way. So there's about 4 ounces or so of everclear in that thing. I mixed it up with the gatorade and downed it ALL. I could not taste the gatorade, haha.

So anyway all of my friends at the time were pilots, and there was an "IFR Flight Training" magazine sitting out on the table. I didn't really feel any different immediately after drinking it and I started to read it. I opened it up to an article about GA pilots being CAT II certified.

I got about half way down the page when I noticed something funny...

Those letters started to move. I kind of shook my head and started grinning goofily. I asked my friends why the letters on the page started to move. At the same time, my friend Mike was talking about his dad's airplane. It had just gotten an annual and he was talking about the process. So I go up to Mike and I say

"hey mike...how umm, how often do u have to get one of those annuals??"

they all looked at me and started laughing really hard and from that point on, all i remember is falling down a lot, and calling a bunch of girls and telling them how drunk I was...yeah...what can i say...I was a regular ole retarded sophomore drunkard. In any case, my friends took me home and saw to it that I got to my dorm room okay without any of the residents seeing me (I was an RA at the time...haha). I woke up in the morning with a slight hangover, went to breakfast and I was fine!

It was quite the first drunk experience.

My parents used to get Bacardi 151 at JFK when they used to come back from the US. To be honest it didn't really affect me, though I didn't drink large amounts of it. A glass of 14% red wine could put me to sleep though. All those other esters and stuff in the wine....

Funny story, I went to a 'ruit party with a friend of mine who has a pretty low tolerance, and saw they had brewed a batch of jungle juice and put it in a large Gatorade container in the corner. Well, I was in the middle of a game, and he came over and mentioned how it was funny how they were offering non-alcoholic drinks for people. I looked down and he had a cup with red juice in it. Shit.

Well, he had maybe five or six glasses of it in maybe ten minutes. It didn't stay in his system very long, though, as he was in the bathroom pretty soon, haha. He didn't have a very good night.  crazy

I went to buy some Everclear about a year ago because we had a recipe for lemoncello that called for it. Unfortunately, none of the local liquor stores carried it, apparently it's illegal in New York State. We had to use Devil Springs vodka (~160 proof), fortunately the lemoncello turned out quite well.

Ahh yes, Everclear.

Stuff makes rockin punch, and when you make the punch right, it goes down like water. It's not even sold in some places in the US. I never actually bought any, but I don't recall ever seeing any for sale in New Jersey. It could be illegal to sell here as well.

Now, during my years are Rutgers, my group of drunken friends had this one drink called The Force. Apparently, it had its origin up in Boston. You would take a can of frozen lemonade, dump it in a pitcher. Fill the lemonade can with vodka, dump in said pitcher. Take 2 cans of cheap beer, Miller or Bud worked best for us, and dump in said pitcher. Serves 4, but those 4 people are going to be trashed as all hell. You could NOT taste the booze at all, it tasted exactly like lemonade. And heaven help you if you drank more than 2 servings of those. We played flip cup with that stuff one night, and it was NOT pretty the next day.

We use 95% ethanol in the lab quite regularly. It works great for sterilizing surfaces. It's also pure enough to be considered spectrophotometric grade. It is a potentially dangerous thing to have around, I wouldn't even consider drinking it. If you want to, that's your business. My advice is treat it with great respect, I would only consume it "to get the ball rolling" so to speak. Then put it away and stick to beer or mixed drinks. If you do a shot while already hammered you are asking for trouble. If suffocating on your own vomit and getting your stomach pumped sounds fun to you, have at it...
