At the best of times, Four Loko got me to yell songs with my shirt off. At the worst, it gave me weird chest pains that felt something not entirely dissimilar to a heart attack.

Goodbye, Loko. The good die young, as they say.

Guys, here's a thing.

Being a Brit, I never got to sample the horrific delight that was 4Loko. I understand that many of you might see this as a blessing for me, but man do I want to get shit ass drunk on it at least once. Buuuut there's a pretty big chance I'll never get to taste the real thing, so I am pretty keen to make my own. Looking at that video of how to do so, I can definitely get at least a couple of the ingredients (Monster is pretty widely available here, and I can probably use Pro Plus, a caffeine suppliment, as my extra kick), but do any of you know what is the best British equivalent of malt liquor (I dont really know what this is) and Jolly Ranchers (which look kind of like hard sugar candy?).

I am going to a house party in about 2 weeks. If you help me, I promise to make some by then and fully document the results...

yes, we been makin vodkastar and redbullodka for years before we got 4lokos, but man, 4lokos, they are the shit. i am pretty bummed that our time together was short though even though i've known about them for about a year. i guess we just got to capitalize on this soon.

Given that it has a bit more than a quarter of the alcohol in a $5 bottle of vodka, I'm going to go with no. The difference is most people respect vodka/rum/whiskey/tequila.

it's weird and kind of histrionic to say this but i can honestly divide my adult life into "getting drunk before 4loko" and "getting drunk after 4loko," and i can assure you that, while life will go on, the drink seriously switched around a bunch of mental triggers in my brain. it's actually gotten harder for me to get regular drunk in fact i haven't been full-on drunk without the aid of a loko since may and i get the feeling that next time i get as drunk as i do on lokos without lokos, i'm not going to enjoy it nearly as much.

i guess in this way it's been kind of a positive experience, the lokos getting banned. once they're gone forever i don't have them as a crutch and i'm probably at like considerably less risk of drinking myself into an early grave.

on the other hand, it's fucking stupid that they got banned and like i don't see how that's going to stop kids from binge drinking at all

Cannot say I've had the pleasure.
Norway banned strong energy drinks for years until very recently, which is how we evidently battled the whole booze + energy drink crisis. I guess it worked too, actually.  :psyduck: Was lifted not too long ago though.

but do any of you know what is the best British equivalent of malt liquor

Malt Liqour is (basically) very strong lager. Special Brew or Tenants Super would do. As for the Jolly Ranchers, they look just like hard sweets. I've had drinks before with skittles dissolved in vodka so maybe skittles?

I really can't see how the resultant concoction wouldn't taste like a million arses though. Why not just pop a pro-plus and drink Vodka Relentless or some such?

Or, quite frankly, just snort some fucking speed.

Oh, Loko. I only knew you once. But it was one of the happiest drunks I've ever been in my life. We took photos, we laughed and quoted each other on facebook. Such jewels like

"Sammy's more drinking!"

"I haven't pooped since I got here, which is weird cos I usually poop a lot!"

and

"I'll fucking fuck the shit outta anybody!"

and then Barb spilled you and mopped it up with her own clothes.

and then Sammy blacked out and woke up making chicken nuggets.

and then I attempted to say every line from a Firefly episode as we watched it. I got most of them wrong and then I had spaghetti. In the morning, the tummyache was severe.

Warning - Consumption of Fourloko may result in sudden and involuntarily appearances of backwards baseball caps on your head, a dangerously increased interest in "raising the roof", and involuntary and superfluous exclamations of the word "nigga", regardless of your race.

When I first heard the story I immediatly thought of the beer rant in SLC Punk! (@1:37)

Of course I have mixed feelings about 4Loko when my best friend decided that it in conjunction with crunkcore were things that needed to happen at all hours of the day.

Unless skittles in the UK are different than the US, that isn't quite the same thing. Jolly Ranchers are pretty much just fruit-flavored hard candy, though.

Four Loko isn't the only drink that's affected. A number of states are banning pretty much all of the energy-malt liquor combos, including Sparks and Joose. I never drank Four Loko but Sparks was an integral part of my college career. I wonder if we'll start seeing regulations like this affecting bars that serve Jaeger-bombs and the like.

There are no hard and fast rules about what can and can't be sold as a cocktail in the UK that I know of, but a lot of places have house rules. For example, at the pub where I used to work, we could serve jaegerbombs, vodka red bulls, boilermakers and Irish car bombs, but not snakebite or turbo-shandy. A lot of places have similiar rules, with different emphasis. Snakebite in particular is seen as something of a violence inducer. Turbo-shandy is, of course, just pure dogshit.

For some reason, I always thought that (or at least that name) was an American invention. I guess gallows humor is appreciated at bars all over the world.

Apparently you can not serve beer or cider by the quarter-pint in the UK so you can not serve a pint of snakebite.
Also apparently people get really awful drunk on it and do terrible things?
