Do You Drink Strong Alcohol?

The other day I made a martini with Absolut's 100-proof, black-label vodka.

I've never considered myself a lightweight, but you could definitely notice the difference in strength!

How about you? Do you ever drink super-strong alcohol? Anyone else tried the Absolut 100?

I'm underaged I sooo shouldn't even vote... I only like strong alcohol when I'm trying to get drunk or on a big dinner, but normally I like somethign lighter, just enough to get me a good buzz going.

depends on how I'm feeling. Sometimes I like a strong drink, but mainly I drink "regular" strength liquors.

I have had strong liquor, but I don't necessarily prefer it.

I once went to the liquor store and i picked up some triple distilled smirnoff 100. The woman at the counter said 'you know this is 100 proof.' I said 'yeah, tastes good too.' I like my drinks like my men. STRONG. :-)

I love vodka. I can drink it straight. Now.........I have never tried 100 proof and I don't know why I would. If you think it has a good smooth flavor then I will try it the next time I get a chance.

I don't drink either...I do like to cook with wine though. Like mussels in white wine, garlic butter sauce. *I had that Bacardi Black many years ago when I thought 21 meant you're 'supposed' to drink and I though I was going to have a heart attack I got so hot and no thank you. and why are the strongest liquors labeled as black?

Haven't tried this. But I HAVE tried, and do like 100 proof Captain Morgan (probably because they made sure to offer a trace of spice and vanilla to it which makes sipping much more pleasurable) It's worth it to try it. I don't know how they could spruce up 100 proof vodka. I've done the whole vanilla/citrus/apple flavored, and it never really adds up. Go fig.

Ehh...I could take it or leave it. I drink vodka on occasion, but it tastes like medicine to me. I prefer wine or champagne.

I prefer higher proof when it's BYOB and I'm at the liquor store myself, but I'm not too picky about it as long as it's alcoholic :P I have found with rum though that the higher the proof the less headachey I get, not really sure why. One pet peeve I have is people confusing proof with percent.

Pre-pregnancy and baby, oh yea. Ever since I had a baby I haven't nor wanted to drink Strong Alcohol. I have the occasional glass of wine or a beer though. I need to mentally be sharp with an infant.

I have to say, when intentions to get totally hammered, it's a vodka

when i was in college, i used to drink really strong alcohol, but now, i don't think that it's my thing. if i even drink liquor, i make sure that it's not a strong drink cause i don't enjoy it.

I will try it if there is a drink at a bar/restaurant made with it, but I prob won't go buy it on my own. I don't mind hard liquor if it is in a really good drink, like the bacardi 151 volcanoes at my fave chinese restaurant.

"I need strong liquor to feel anything at all." Yep, me too. Beer doesn't do anything for me except make me pee every five seconds, and wine isn't worth it when it takes an entire bottle to get even the barest semblance of a buzz.

I'm a whiskey girl and I learned about overproof rums this past summer. I need strong liquor to feel anything at all.
