  •  the idea behind the gold... (6+ / 0-)

    is that it abrades the back of your throat and facilitates quicker absorption of alcohol into your system.

    Goldschlager is an interesting brand of booze, good stuff, you'll enjoy it :D

      by the fact that I'm expected to digest actual pieces (itty bitty pieces) of gold.  It's like conspicuous consumption of conspicuous consumption!

      I like the peppermint schnappes idea.

      And Jagermeister is still disgusting, but that's just an objective fact, not a commentary on its usefulness in becoming intoxicated or inducing vomiting.

      •  Jaegermeister, as well as Unicum (1+ / 0-)

        and other central European digestives are just that: they are essentially medicine, meant to settle a tummy--often one that had a bit too much venison and the rich sauces and dishes that originally accompanied it on the aristocratic tables of Germany and Austria-Hungary.

        If you have too much of it, it SHOULD make you vomit: it's MEDICINE. ;)
