Thanks for bringing back memories of Ripple....I had so much Ripple in college (one of the colleges I went to,anyway) that I named our black cat Ripple.

A bunch of us guys lived off campus. We also had a German Shepherd mix dog named Fang. We had an old bowling ball compressing the hundreds of pop tops from beer cans (remember those?) kept in a plastic garbage can...when we had "company", one of us would take the bowling ball out and roll it across the floor at which time Fang would leap on it and hump the darn ball...he was a crazy, misaligned dog, and I think we were not far behind. Can't imagine we all became polished executives later in life!

In my college days the rough equivalent of gator spit we called "jungle juice". Basically Everclear 190 proof and Hawaiian Punch. Note that I went to college in CA and Everclear is not sold in CA, not sure why but in CA Bacardi 151 rum is the strongest sold. Had to go to NV to buy Everclear as closest source.

Jungle juice was for the girls, the guys drank other liquor or just beer. Jungle juice was not detectable for the amount of alcohol it really had in it. It served it's purpose.

Ah, Colt 45. I recall when I was in HS some buddies and I were drinking Colt 45 in a popular spot when we were caught by a young cop. He confiscated the Colt 45, gave us a lecture that we shouldn't drink that rot-gut and let us go. Ah, the good ol'days.

Fast forward 20 years and and the cop's wife and I worked together and his son and mine were good friends.

Small world.

Living in CA and having attended college here - but in the southern part of the state - we used to go down to Tijuana to buy everclear for parties. Bonus was you only had to be 18 to buy booze in TJ. It was great when the trolley came online - no driving required to go on your booze runs.

As kids our family vacations were backpack trips in the Sierras (I know it's the "Sierra Madre Range" - but we called them the Sierras.)
My parents used to bring a small canteen of everclear on longer backpack trips. They called it freeze dried alcohol. (Since it needed to be diluted.) They'd mix it with wylers lemonade. I suspect it made the aches of hiking all day feel a lot less painful.

When I activated in my college fraternity, I was "awarded," and drank, a bottle of Swiss-Up wine. Right up there with Ripple. OMG, horrible. Swiss-Up: ****ed me up, then I threw up....

Am I the only one that drank cheap beer in college? Genny Cream and Little Kings were preferred. They ruined Little Kings when I tried it again a couple years ago, and I have not been willing to see if the same was done to Genny Cream. I just make my own cream ale now.

Genny is still good IMHO. Course at $10.00 a 6 pack I don't get much. I know it's still cheap in the NE, here it's an import.

Nah...we used to drink Blatz beer in the mornings after a good party. It went better with scrambled eggs and hot sauce.

Now we know how to become FI and RE. Just drink a lot of cheap booze in your youth and everything will turn out all right in the end.

It gives you incentive to be able to buy the better stuff later in life.

Fish eggs? They are over there, next to the white wine with bubbles and a cork from somewhere in Europe.
