Cyprus And Beyond!

I first "properly" had alcohol when I was about 13-14 (Wow, I still had short hair back then. I looked so funny :p ANYWAY!). It was my sister's wedding and we were all in Cyprus for the service. That night, I went to the hotel bar where my new brother-in-law was celebrating. I was given two shots of Sambuca, which were really quite nice, despite no one else liking them very much. I recall a pint of lager was also put down in front of me but I had enough sense not to drink it :)

Good job too. I had to sort out family problems later on when arguments started breaking out. Hehe.

And then I went to college, where I was invited to a friend's house for a weekend party. It was fun, I got a bit tipsy and ended up ranting about Japanese Sky Divers (Please don't ask XD).

Nope! I occasionally have a massive emotional breakdown. Not often though. And never without provocation :P

Ohhh, gotcha. Lol what's with the most of the time part? What do you sometimes make a fool of yourself at parties when you've had a little too much to drink?:P

Noooo, I drank at the party, then went home and got locked in the bathroom. I am a gracious guest (most of the time) :)

Oh. So you locked yourself in the bathroom drinking at your cousin's 18th?<br />
You were a great guest, huh? :P

My cousin's 18th. But they weren't shots. :P

And what was the celebration a few months ago? :P

I drank 4 glasses of straight vodka in one night a few months ago. Admittedly I locked myself in the bathroom and passed out on the floor later on, but I attribute THAT to the full bottle of wine, not the vodka :D<br />
<br />
Usually I do drink beer. Shots are for get-togethers and celebrations :)

Lol. Somehow I can't imagine you doing that. You strike me as the type of person who will choose beer as their poison. Lol I guess I'm wrong. I'm trying to picture you drinking shot after shot, unaffected by the horrible taste (horrible taste in my opinion, even though I've never had an alcohol shot before :P)

BAILEYS! The drink I was thinking of is Baileys! :D<br />
<br />
Shots are fun at the right times. Everyone else seems to get knocked sick by them, or experience extreme pain or something. But I don't get that for some reason :s I can just knock them back one after the other.<br />
<br />
An espresso shot isn't quite the same. It might be the same measurement, but it won't get you drunk :D

Yes that's it! Chocolate liquor. No one told me it diddn't taste like chocolate, and no one stopped me from taking a sip. I wish someone would have though because as soon as my tongue touched the bitter liquor, I almost threw up.<br />
I can't imagine having a shot of an alcoholic drink. That would be much too strong for me. But i do enjoy espresso shots in my Starbucks Is that the same? :P

Well, it must be strong. You'd normally only drink it in shots, so...PLUS I ended up passing out at the end of the night, though I still refuse to put that down to the alcohol. It was more to do with the stress if you ask me :)<br />
<br />
Are you sure that the drink had chocolate in it? Maybe it was chocolate liquor....Hm...I'm trying to think. there's a drink that looks really chocolatey but isn't, and I can't for the life of me remember what it's called!

Is Sambuca strong?<br />
I've never really properly drank alcohol before. I've only had tiny sips of various drinks. (Smirnoff with 7% alcohol, apple margaritas, Bud Light beer, and some sort of chocolate mixed drink at my mom's 50th. I just wanted to try that because it had chocolate in it. It was incredibly gross) Actually, I've never tried an alcohol that I liked so far. Well the Smirnoff wasn't TOO bad but I certainly wouldn't want to drink a whole bottle of it. I do love virgin margaritas though. They're so sweet!
