No matter how old you are or what is your job if you like to go out with friends and have some drinks it’s not less money that will stop you from doing it. So, I think that it’s absolutely possible to keep on partying without ruining yourself. Here are my ideas! (Of course the intention here is not to promote heavy drinking, it’s only to give tips to people who would drink anyway).
- Make your own wine: A lot of companies now offer to prepare housewine and bottled it for you. In the long run it’s way cheaper to make your own wine like that than to buy one or two bottles at the grocerie store every week. All you have to do is to bring your own empty bottles (I asked a restaurant and they gave me 15 empty bottles) and to find a package deal online, it could be with tuango or directly with a wine company it doesn’t mean that it will be more expensive.
Me and my two roommates found a deal at 150$ for 25 bottles of 750 ml. We split The bill in three. If you do the math its only 6$ a bottle. Furthermore, you can choose the grape and the flavor of your choice.
- The albertarian way: This is the cheapest way and the less classy but it deserves one try and after you know if you can handle it or not. You basically just need a 95% alcohol of your choice (in Alberta they sold it in any good liquor store for about 15$ a bottle of 13 oz), an empty bottle of 2L of soft drink and juice or soda or both at your taste. You put the amount of two shooters of The alcohol (2 1/2 oz) in the empty 2L bottle. You fill The rest of the bottle with juice or soda, mix it and drink it!
- Krakenize your night : This is probably one of the most tasty and strong rum in Canada that is affordable. It costs about 40$ for a 26 oz and the good thing is the percentage of alcohol: 47%. Even if it’s pretty strong the taste is delectable and you can mix it with the classic coca cola, a bit of lemon juice and a lot of ice. Amazing in summer time. By the way their website is pretty cool.
Cold alcoholised coffee recipe
My summer has been pretty intense and the money wasn’t pumping out of my account. So here is my own recipe before going out to wake me up and get me ready to party!
(For one drink)
- 1/2 mug of strong coffee
- 1 1/2 oz of irish cream
- 1 tea spoon of sugar
- 1 tb spoon of milk
- Vanilla ice cream (not necessary)
Pour the hot coffee in the mug, add the irish cream, sugar, milk and ice. Wait 3 minutes to cool the coffee down and add one spoon of vanilla ice cream if you have some. Put two straws and have some fun!
