    I agree that Vodka got me drunk off my a$$. I could feel the vodka working it's way through my body. No lie it started at my feet it moved upward it was a warm tingling feeling by the time it reached my head I was drunk. Moon shine was even quicker.

    Yeah, born and lived there practically my whole life. It's a bit of a depressing place. Not surprising so many people turn to drink.

    Like super sweet cough medicine mixed with cheap red wine. It had an after burn (like acid reflux or a warmth to it) but not as strong as moonshine or even a strong grain alcohol. It was so sweet you could barely taste the alcohol. Which is NOT a good thing! LOL. It'll fool you til you hit the floor!

    My lowest tolerance would probably be to tequila. I have a pretty high tolerance to vodka and whiskey, but those two are also my preferred choices of drink, so it would make sense as to why the tolerance is higher....But even though tequila gets me drunk faster, the other two can hit me harder. with Vodka, one minute I'm fine, and the next I'm done (I'm also a very slow drinker, mind you.)

    There's science behind this. The AbV (alcohol by volume) percentage is what determines how much pure alcohol is contained in the drink. Here's an image:
    From the image, you could see that light beer is the least likely to get someone drunk, with only 4.2% AbV. Beers that can be purchased at regular grocery stores like Tiger Beer have a even lower AbV of 1-2%. 14oz of this beer is equivalent to 1.5oz of 80 Proof hard liquor.

    I would have to say Fireball. Doing Fireball shots really gets you messed up fast. Of course you are not usually just drinking Fireball. There is usually other alcohol involved so you get pretty wasted. When I do drink I usually just stick with a few beers or a few drinks of vodka.

    You know what shots actually do not do that to me. I've had 5 within an hour and it was like nothing. If I had them with another cocktail it would, but not alone. Long Island ice tea generally does the trick fast. The whole glass is alcohol with a splash of mixers.

    That's crazy, shots have always hit me hard. It's hard to imagine them not effecting someone much :S

    Vodka has always been what hit me the fastest. Only 2 or 3 shots would have me stumbling everywhere and acting like a crazy wild woman. Of course I wouldn't stop there, I added many other types of drinks, especially when I was out somewhere. But vodka was definitely my DOC when I knew I wanted to get drunk fast.

    I get drunk very easily, but I think that the strongest drink for me it’s vodka and tequila, two shots of those drinks are more than enough for me, but my sister is a strong drinker, she can take about five shots of tequila and she is still not dizzy!
