    Find most spirits a bit dire these days tbh, mainly because I have gone off them having drank them and making myself sick, perhaps if I didn't mix them they wouldnt be so bad.

    I can never drink more than a couple of the same spirit(+mix) in one go. That is, I can drink a vodka-orange then a vodka-RedBull then a vodka-strawberry-juice, etc. (x2 if needbe) but I have to constantly change flavour.

    Gets hopelessly boring and eventually stops going down if I don't vary it. I generally get closest to being sick \ hungover if I just drink cider - for the obvious reason that it's far more of a dehydrant than spirit-mixes.

    Nope. While others are drinking lager and whisky I'm unashamedly following ciders with Reefs, Bacardi Breezers etc. Couldn't give a damn TBH, and those I drink with have long since gotten bored of the tired cliches.

    In fairness, Reef will get you smashed if you drink enough of it.

    Go for Lager more than anything these days, or wine, can't stand most Ciders any more.

    Yeah - 15 bottles or so. Have had nights where I've just drunk Reef from start to finish because it's been dirt cheap and I quite like it. Without cider to start off with, it barely touches the sides. Same is true of spirit mixes.

    For some reason, if I'm to get remotely decently drunk I have to start with cider.

    Obviously prefer to have no more than 2-3 Reefs per night, as with all drinks as I say above.

    Haha indeed, it goes for about 1 a bottle on certain nights in certain pubs around here, is a nice quick fix when you are beginning a night, though I try to generally avoid it as its a bit sugary for my taste. Have been put off Cider since trying some that was about 9% in terms of strength, was foul tstl.

    I don't get out as much these days, but when I do I try to make up for it. I really find anymore than 3-4 beers to start of with, and I feel really bloated, so I tend to hit the spirits more now, or the red wine.

    That 80% stuff should be sold more widely though. If you're at the pub and you run out of petrol , you could always start your car with it. Ridiculous stuff really.

    Mixing Cider and Vodka is the worst mistake I've yet to make in my short life

    Whisky and wine is worse, I can assure you.

    I suppose some people are extra-sensitive to certain things, but I suspect this sentence would read more accurately as "mixing rather too much cider and rather too much vodka is the worst mistake I've yet to make in my short life" TBH.

    Haha, that's very difficult (though not completely impossible) for me.

    Being too sugary, that is.
    Have been put off Cider since trying some that was about 9% in terms of strength, was foul tstl.
    I've had clear ciders that've been 8-9% before now - mostly I find they just taste like white wine without the tang. I didn't particularly dislike them (and I LOVE the proper 7.3% cloudy golden scrumpy ciders - especially as they're always in abundance down here) but well... if I want white wine I have white wine.

    Scrumpy ciders are those I avoid, simply because they are potent to the point where I can't taste anything bu nastiness, other Ciders like the big brands (bulmers etc...) I just avoid because they're not that great for my taste personally. Have never found any cider to taste like white wine though, if I had, I probably wouldn't mind it.
