    Its no wonder. Scientific fact is that ethanol is optimally absorbed at about 30 Proof, in a mildly acidic solution. (citrus, carbonated) Natural sugar also enahnces absorption. The fastest way from sober to not is a fruity 1/3 ratio cocktail with citrus or carbonation.

    Hmmmm, interesting.

    I generally drink whiskey neat, and I find that I'm more likely to get smashed on a 40% pour than if I'm drinking something like OGD 114, Stagg, or a cask-strength Scotch.

    I think that has a lot to do with the fact that it's easier to drink a lower-strength spirit quickly.

    One of these days, I just might try a Skylab - to quote Mr. Taggart, "You, too, will burn up over Australia and crash." Of course, this is a lot more than 33% alcohol.
