A Conversation for Alcohol

Drinking through a straw

I haven't done any quantifiable research in to this (at least not that I can remember) but I'm certain that drinking any alcoholic beverage through a straw gets one piddled far quicker than sipping from a glass/bottle/yard/whatever.

Any ideas why?

I was on a pub crawl (no, me? never!) and I was awarded double points for drinking my beer through a straw (the aim of the exercise was to be "par" by the end of the course/crawl).

I didn't drink my beer any faster than the others but it nearly wiped me out.

If nothing else I can recommend it as a way of getting drunk cheaply.

Well, using a straw while drinking is very, very efficient. Especially Pre Mixed Drinks, or bottled beer.

But the point isn't to drink through the straw. You've got it all wrong then.

See, what you do, is put the straw in the bottle, (You need the kind of straw that's bendable at the top). You then proceed to bend the straw down paralell to the bottle neck. When drinking, make sure your mouth covers both the bottleneck and the straw completely.

The straw will then let air intop the bottle, as you empty it of it's contents, preventing a vacuum caused by the bottleneck.

You should easily be able to down a bottle of beer within 3 seconds. (depending on how quickly you can swallow).

This method will easily allow you do to do away with a 12 pack within an hour, and will also do away with a large portion of your common sense.

Yeah, that's called 'strawpedoing' (atleast where i am). It's good, but only some people can do it. You have to be able to open your gullet and let the drink go straight down (and not try to swallow).

Not too sure on why drinking through a straw has such an effect but standing on your head or jumping up and down supposedly compounds the effect!!

Hey smiley - smiley yes drinking through a straw does get you drunk more effectively saw this on tv :P This is because when you sip through the straw air is mixed with the alcohol better and this carries the alcohol to the nasal cavity where it is absorbed more quickly into the blood stream. So all adults out there have fun smiley - smiley
