"Good" Alchohol vs "Bad" Alchohol
    #9028999 - 10/04/08 05:00 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

so it was one of my friend's birthdays last night and me and a couple of buddies threw in on a bottle of gold patron for him. we got to drinking it, and i realized how much faster/drunker i'm getting off this stuff, than i do if i drink jose cuervo etc.

so my question is, sure they may be both 40% ethanol, but can the distilling/impurities affect how much of the ethanol your body takes up? or are you gonna get just as drunk regardless from a 40% 10$ bottle of vodka as you would a bottle of patron?

:cheers:

I'm not a scientist...but I am a drinker...and my first thought is NO.

jose is nasty.

and I always feel much more hungover when I buy $10 a bottle vodka than when I get $40 a bottle vodka

This seems like the more logical answer.

I have drank many many many gallons of liquor. 40% is 40%. Now, you can have 40% of vodka, then have 40% whiskey, and you may get obliterated off whiskey after drinking half a fifth, but be mildly drunk after drinking the equivalent of the vodka. It's the TYPES of alcohol.

why would 40% of one alcohol fuck you up more than another? i mean isn't it the ethanol making the drunk? if that logic works then i feel it would work as well between liquors of the same type, not only different liquor types

No. Dude, it's different TYPES of alcohol. Not the alcohol itself. You drink beer, you get a buzz. You drink liquor, you get a different buzz, and so on with the different types of alcohol. Not to mention different types of alcohol allow for further fermentation than other alcohols. Still, different alcohols are derived from different ness....? In other words, for beer, you have hops. Wine, grapes. Liquor, grains. Get it? So, no, not all alcohol will effect you the same. Not at all. Just like some people get violent drinking Tequila, but not when they drink vodka.

I honestly don't care. I know how alcohol effects me, and the people around me. I know what many people have said. So I am basing this off of my experience, along with others.

http://ask.metafilter.com/54654/The-effects-of-different-alcohol

Here is a site that mildly discusses it. This is the only one I could find. It may be a set and setting thing. Maybe not. I am strictly speaking from experience. Maybe others have different reactions. But, it makes sense.

ive thought the same thing
one would think that a liquid with 40% ethanol in it would effect you in the same way, regardless of the contents of the other 60%, but that doesnt seem to be the case

anyone have a more scientific explanation as to what actually causes the different kind of drunk?

Hmm. The silly things we do when we are young. Thank you, but I am sure I no longer drink like that. I never said that drinking is intelligent, which is part of the reason why I have mostly stopped drinking. So, thank you for attempting to insult me. But, unfortunately for you, you have no room to do so.

And I realized that that statement was unnecessary, so I removed it.

Comparing tequila to vodka is like comparing sativas to indicas.  They're both the same drug, but different effects.

... I don't mean to sound like a dick... But I think that is what the discussion is about. I'm saying that different types of alcohol will give you different types of buzz's.

Indica and sativa differ because they contain different proportions of active chemicals.  What other actives are in whiskey, or vodka, or tequila?

I know beer gives me a different buzz than hard liquor due to the hops.  But I don't experience different drunks from different hard liquors; even if I did, I'd be at a complete loss to explain why.

For me it's a rate of consumption thing.  I can consume a boatload of good liquor real quick, while if it's shitty and I'm gagging it down things go a lot slower.

And yes, different types of alcohols get different drunks out of me.

OK, actually on second thought I'll amend my statement to only beer, wine, and distilled spirits giving different buzzes.  I presume the subjective difference in the drunken experience with tequila vs. vodka would be due to the set and setting of the drinking: tequila has the reputation of getting women's clothes off; JD is for the mournful, drown your sorrows with whiskey type drunk; etc... I read a study once that people who were given a fake alcohol shot acted just as socially confident and exuberant as they would if the shot was actually filled with alcohol.

The placebo effect can be a very powerful thing.

As someone else said, rate of consumption is key. Your body also doesn't react the exact same way every time. For example, drinking on an empty stomach will obviously get you drunk much quicker.

I find no difference in the type of drunk I get from various liquors (if they are all the same strength at lest), and I find it hard to believe there really is much of one.
