This Polish alcohol is called Spirytus Rektyfikowany, which means rectified spirit in Polish. It contains 96% alcohol and is very similar to Everclear. Consume with great care…
5. St. George Absinthe Verte
Absinthe could not be missing. This green absinthe (the mildest of absinthes) has an alcohol content of 60%, and it is best to drink it as it should be, following the traditional French method, dissolving sugar with water over the absinthe. Place a spoon of absinthe (perforated) on the glass with absinthe (30ml). Place an ice cube on the spoon and then pour ice water slowly to break up the sugar, so expect the water to be very cold. The absinthe will begin to take on a milky color as it comes into contact with the water and sugar. Finish by stirring the drink with the spoon. You can add ice at the end.
4. George T. Stagg
In the United States, the renowned distillery Buffalo Trace, brings them with George T. Stagg at 70.7% alcohol. The best way to drink it is dry, believe us it is not suitable for cocktails.
3. Laphroaig Ten Year Old Cask Strength
Laphroaig whisky also offers a slightly stronger than normal whisky. With its ten year old cask strength at 57.8%.
2. Bacardi 151
A stronger than normal rum created by Bacardi with 75.5% alcohol. If you are going to prepare cocktails, dose it well or don’t drink more than one…
Everclear is a grain spirit at 95% alcohol. It is not recommended to drink on its own as it is very strong. Generally, it is mixed in fruit punches such as those prepared in fraternities… do not hesitate to consult other ways to consume it moderately.
Drinking in excess is very bad for your health. Learn to drink slowly and learn to take your time to detect the flavors you are tasting. Drinking is an art! Don’t take it for granted.
Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
