8 Drinking Games- an Infographic.


I was recently approached to host this drinking game graphic on my blog in return for some free publicity.

Uh, okay.

Read this and then read this more compelling article about my own drinking game experiences, which are way more fun than any of these.

Need a drink now?

Try one of these.

4 drinking games my roommate and I made up in college.

In honor of my birthday and all the socially irresponsible decisions I made at the bar last night, I give you a post about drinking. Mazel tov.


I’d like to put it out there that Roommate and I were responsible, socially adjusted people the went to class and studied diligently and wrote theses and supported philanthropic events (well, at least she was). Nevertheless, everyone needs to blow off steam once in a while, and we did that by yelling at each other, painting our fingernails, doing arts and crafts, and getting drunk in creative ways.

We made these once stone cold sober. Craftsss.

1. Let’s get Bourdained – Roommate and I developed a passion for two different T.V. shows in college. The first was Ghost Adventures. The second was No Reservations. We never really drank during Ghost Adventures because we got way too scared anyways, but No Reservations lends itself to a little debauchery.

Rules- Drink every time he drinks. Simple, but effective. You will be tempted to also drink every time he smokes. DO NOT DO THIS. 

2. Robin Hood (a Walt Disdrink Classic) – Fun fact – I’ve watched Robin Hood probably ten times and I have no idea how it ends. I get pretty fuzzy around the jail scene. I think there’s birds involved?

Rules- Drink every time the words, oodalolly, taxes, or Little John are used. Careful, the first seven minutes are a doozy.

3. Trashed and Tidy – Our apartment had a tendency to get a little untidy, especially during finals weeks. Roommate and I figured out a great way to get motivated to clean. It (sorta) worked.

Rules- Clean your apartment from top to bottom. Every time you complete a room, take a shot.

4. Solidarity – Drinking in solidarity wasn’t really a game, but it’s something that I expect here on out from anyone brave enough to try to live with me. Calling solidarity means that you are having a really bad day and you need Roommate to meet you at the door to your apartment with an open bottle of your favorite brew, no questions asked. Solidarity means that your Roommate has to drink with you for however long you need them to, despite whatever they had planned. It can only be used in extreme need. It’s like the Plan-B of drinking games.

Use these games wisely, internet.

4 terrible drinks my roommate and I made up in college.

Disclaimer- I do not support underage drinking laws.

Double disclaimer- Do NOT try all of these in the same night.

1. The Poor Communist- This was a really awful take on a wonderful drink my friends and I decided was a good idea our sophomore year. I had just come back to the dorms from a screening of The Big Lebowki and as such felt the need to have a White Russian right that second. I procured some Kahlua somehow and borrowed some 2% milk from someone and couldn’t find any vodka, so I just put in half of each. What resulted was a drink that I somehow got the rest of my close friends obsessed with for the better part of our year. I can’t even type the word Kahlua now without feeling ill.

A night of P.C.'s once resulted in this poster being made. I can't even.

2. The Extravagant Neighbours– So my wonderful, wonderful roommate from sophomore year decided to move into an apartment with me junior year which we lived in till we graduated. I’m pretty shocked anyone would want to live with me that long, but there you have it.

My dad makes límoncello as a hobby, which is both impressive and economic. I once ended up with about 60 lemons that I didn’t know what to do with, so I made a batch with him and ended up with a large amount of very strong liquor lying around. My roommate and I put this into everything. We ended up frequenting our neighbour’s apartment parties drinking a mix of límoncello, rum, chambord, lemon juice, and club soda.

Never again.

3. The Unnecessarily Creative Mimosa– Any type of flavored Andre’s Champagne, orange juice, and loganberry syrup. It looked like the juice that runs out of a thanksgiving turkey and tasted like an energy drink mixed with bargain basement cough syrup.

4. The I Can’t Feel my Tongue Anymore– Coffee, the cheapest Cremé de Cacao you can find, and powdered hot chocolate mix. I absolutely never drank this before going to class, ever. Not even all the time.
