19 Alcohol Experiences Every Aussie Had Growing Up

If you didn't get shit-faced in a backyard off UDLs then what were you even doing?

Posted on

1. Getting accidentally lit at a family BBQ when you were underage after smuggling two Cruisers out of your aunt's esky.

Raspberry was obviously the best flavour, but you wouldn't turn down a pineapple or orange one.


11. Drinking Double Blacks at your Year 12 formal after party, because Smirnoff Ice was just a waste of time.

Whether you went for the bottles or the cans, you were guaranteed a good night on the DBs.


14. Smashing a six-pack of Woodstock and not being able to face dark liquor for at least a year afterwards.

I am literally 25 years old and can't drink bourbon because I got too loose on Woodstock nine years ago.

15. Buying a $5 bottle of Schweppes at an overpriced corner store because you forgot to get mixers at Coles and don’t want to drink your Bacardi straight.


16. Getting shit-faced while clubbing and making best friends with equally shit-faced strangers while waiting for your kebabs.

so I became best friends with the kebab man when I was drunk lastnight, Alped loves me

There's no friendship quite like those that you make when drunk.

19. And running into a bunch of other Aussies on your first trip overseas and proceeding to see who could get the most drunk and rowdy out of all of you.

Somehow you always end up singing the "he's a pisspot through and through" song.
