I would just stick to things below 20%ish.

Mainly beer. (Provided that they serve good enough beers, ie. imported stuff).

It's not fun getting wasted around people you don't even know.

Interesting ones would also be wine cocktails, such as the Spanish "tinto de verano" (1 pt red wine + 1 pt casera + some lemon juice.. similar to sangria), "calimocho" (1 pt red wind + 1 pt of coke) and "zurracapote". Both are approximately the same strength as beer. I suppose I've been living in Spain too long, as I'm starting to suggest this stuff to others .

well, if you're at a house party and you don't want to get too drunk- don't let anyone mix a drink for you. do it yourself! it's easy to get into trouble when you don't know how much vodka some stranger has dumped in there. fruity drinks are always dangerous because you can't taste the alcohol.

Pint o' cider 'n' blackcurrent. Taken at a reasonable pace.
always my drink of choice. yummm.

I'm gunna go with the malibu recommendations + coke/lemonade/cranberry juice (mmm particular favourite) and I'd try peach schnapps + lemonade too. That's if you're lookin to feel the effects...if not, cheaper options that taste nice (personally anyway) are all the usual alcopops- Bacardi Breezer, Wkd etc.

Try Magners cider. You drink it with ice, which means you have to keep refilling it from the bottle. It can take a while to get through, meaning unless you drink like a fish you can keep the same bottle/glass of it going for a while.

Archers and lemonade, Archers Aqua, Smirnoff Ice or Bacardi Breezers. Vodka and Coke is OK, but stronger. Just to clarify for any detectives out there who may have seen my other posts :p: I don't drink, but these are all drinks I've had in the past that were all right.

Completely agree, its a drink and a meal in one, and not massively more alcoholic than the average lager (don't think so anyway)

Just have a girly spirit with a mixer - archers and lemonade or malibu and coke. And just drink fairly slowly. And if your uni does it try cherry brandy and coke. Its lush and costs £1.60 in my union. Bargainisious!!

Try and avoid wine. It gets you drunk quickly and will probably make you be sick!

You wont feel pressured to drink though. People are nice at uni

Whoever said Kopparberg... seriously if you're going easy pear cider ain't the answer. I find I can just pour the stuff down my throat in a way that doesn't happen with other drinks.

What about (puts flat cap on and takes whippet for walk) a pint of bitter? Seriously the stuff takes ages to drink.

Whatever you do just avoid Aftershock and you won't go far wrong.

P.S. Hi to whoever that is from Farnham further up the page

Alcopops I would say, but they are full or sugar so I'd go for a vodka and lemonade/lime&soda or something. Or archers... always seems weaker than vodka to me!

Gah, please do not say pear cider. It's just plain weird.

I'd reccomend the usual wussy alcopops (though you need loads to get drunk :nn:). Also, pints of any named lager that you can see at the bar are fine too, likewise pints of cider (strongbow/thatchers gold, or magners/bulmers for a slightly more expensive taste). Then there's wine. I've discovered this more and more recently and have come to like it in bars. Much more expensive than from a shop, and you might get called a few things from your mates but it's a change. Naturally, rose or white for a light drink, and red for a heavier one.

As said above, shots are bad if you don't want to get trolleyed, but I suppose there's no harm in the odd one or two.

I stick to alcopops or tall mixers (JD + Coke) when I'm out at a club. Beer/Bitter/Guiness etc makes me feel bloated after a few pints, and I can't pull off my dance moves like that. :p:

Just to stick to Alcopops and you should be fine. They taste alright and it's incredibly difficult to get drunk if you pace yourself on them.

Avoid things like Snakebites, Turbo Shandys etc, the mixers with two alcoholic drinks since they can really kick in hard with inexperience drinkers.

And definitely avoid the cocktail menu.
