Party drinks for kids
I would recommend Lidl for this they have a range of soft drinks that are cheap and to be honest for the price quite tasty.
Freeway cloudy lemonade goes down well with the kiddies and adults alike.
Made from Lemons naturally it even tastes of lemons. Which going by some lemon products is pretty good going.
It has natural sugars in it not these horrible substitutes you get these days and tastes good really lemony and fresh waking your mouth up with its zingy freshness.
Also on the shelf is an Iron bru substitution which my son tells me is pretty close to the real deal. and at around 39p to 49p per bottle is not bad. It has a mixed frutiy taste and is quite palatable. Cheap too.
There is also a coke substitute too which for a cola it is ok usual caramel flavour with a slight tinny taste to it as most colas do. You can get it sugar free too so their teeth don't get too much of a hammering. That goes for the Iron Bru too.
So In final summary if you want cheap drinks for your kids party these are well worth looking into. The kids love them and lets face it at 1, 2 and 3 years old and over even my eighteen year old likes them, most of them drink anything anyway.
Not bad fiz so give them a go.
N.B. Bang usually created when said drinkers hit the floor! Yes I know binge drinking isn’t good for you... but everybody does it... apart from me ;p... because I’m training to be a PE teacher (and therefore should be setting a good example) in my games I use orange juice.... although you binge drinking type slobs could replace this with vodka, bacardi, whiskey, rum etc etc Drinking orange juice is a good way to get hydrated and get your vit c... therefore drinking lots (as you will do with these games) is healthy... Drinking alky-hool gets you very drunk... you will drink lots of alky-hool playing these games and get very drunk! Let the games commence! **Killer** Needed... 1 x pool table (complete with cues and balls) Lots x players Some x money (for the table and the drinks) There are two ways of playing this game (a fave of mine at college)... and of course you can create your own variations. Firstly everybody puts some money in the kitty – this is to buy drinks and pay for the pool games... the amount you all put in will vary depending on how many games you play etc etc. Game 1 – Set the table up as normal and make a note of everyone playing (most pubs have chalkboards lying around so write everybody’s name in a list). Everybody starts with 3 lives (you can change the number of lives to make it easier or harder) and following the order on the board they each take one shot in turn. If a player pots a ball (excluding the white!) they keep their lives... if they don’t they lose a life. Eventually people will lose all their lives and then they are “out” and have to wait for the next game to begin before they can play again. Obviously the winner is the last player to hold a life (if all balls are potted before a winner is decided you may need to pay for another game and set them all up again!). The winner is then bought a drink (the
concoction should be decided by the losers to make it nice and evil... something like an aftershock mixed with a cheap bottle of vodka ice is always a good prize!) from the kitty and the game starts again! Game 2 – This is much more expensive version but good if there are tonnes of people playing. Buy 15 shots (aftershock or sidekicks are always handy) and line them up by the table. The game is played as above (everyone having one go in order) but this time whenever a ball is potted the player who pots it must take a shot from the side of the table. Obviously the 15 shots correlate to the 15 balls there are to be potted... once they’re all gone stack ‘em up and start again! TIP: You can try and be cheeky and block the pockets of the table so that you only pay for one game – this is very sneaky and if you get caught you are liable to be chucked out and maybe barred..... but if you want to do it anyway I suggest you use things like wallets, cigarette packets, loo roll holders and socks.... although make sure they’re secure.... my mate was gutted when her pack of 10 B&H disappeared into the table! Warning: empty crisp packets do not make good pocket stoppers!!! **Monopoly** This is a bit of a London novelty – something that I’ve wanted to do all my life (whoa the ambition!) yes indeedy it’s a pub crawl around the streets famed by that wonderful family feuding game – monopoly! Easy peasy... you visit every street (you’ll probably need to write them down so you remember where you’re going next) and find a pub... have one drink in the pub then move onto the next street and indeed the next pub! I haven’t yet completed the board but I’m training hard! My first attempt was at the measly age of 15 when I was unleashed on the streets whilst on a day trip with the girl guides... we made it to the Angel Islington before “Brown Owl” spi
ed us coming out of a wine bar – dang! Sprung in style though! Last summer, I, and a select group of friends made a much more concerted effort and made it to The Strand... we then started to lag... and were too pissed to catch a taxi and before we knew it, it was closing time! We made it interesting by sampling a different drink in each pub. We narrowly avoided jail and found the waterworks in Bow Street (when my mate fell out of a cab and cracked her knee on the pavement....then sprawled there for about 5 mins while we pissed ourselves laughing!). Definitely something you have to do before you die! **Drinking Darts** This one was created by the “Not the 9 o’clock News” team many decades ago but whilst watching a re-run my flat mate and I decided to give it a go... the basic premise is to stack a load of drinks up on the table. All should be different and there should be two of each (one for each player). For example you could have 2 pints of lager, 2 double vodkas, 2 triple Bacardis, 2 tequila slammers, 2 single Martinis, 2 bottles of Smirnoff Ice, 2 halves of bitter, 2 single gins, 2 Jack Daniels, 2 cokes, 2 glasses of wine, 2 glasses of water. Now you must label each with a certain amount of points, the levels are up to you (and how sloshed you wanna be) but if your unsure how you should label them work by the percentage e.g a double vodka could be 50 points, a bottle of Smirnoff Ice could be worth 21, a glass of water –10. Player one selects a drink then downs it.... they are then awarded points for that drink... player two then downs their drink of choice and is awarded the points for that drink. As with normal darts you must work from 501 points down to 0... the winner is the person to reach 0 without passing out! **Beat The Barman** This is a classic game which will not only you get you very drunk but can make you giggle your pants off too! Requirem
ents 1 x bottle of something strong, 1 x shot glass. Players sit in a circle then someone starts with, “I went to the bar and asked for...” they then insert a drink of their choice and finish with “...and told the barman to keep the change.” So this could be, “I went to the bar and asked for a martini and lemonade with ice and a slice and told the barman to keep the change.” The next person along in the circle must then add something to the list e.g “I went to the bar and asked for a martini and lemonade with ice and a slice and a glass of white wine and told the barman to keep the change.” The next player round then adds something e.g. “I went to the bar and asked for a martini and lemonade with ice and a slice, a glass of white wine and a bucket of menstrual blood and told the barman to keep the change.” And so on... the loser is the first person to mess it up and they must take a shot. The game then starts again... very amusing when you’re all lathered! **Cookie Jar** This was a favourite of mine when I was about 13 and is fairly similar to beat the barman. Once again you’ll need a bottle of something strong (vodka is a good ‘un) and a shot glass. You all sit in a circle and each get a number 1,2,3,4 up to however many people there are. I’ll do this as a sort of role play... the numbers are just examples – in real life you choose each number every time... can be used to gang up on certain people hehe Number 1: Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar, was it you number 3 Number 3: No not I Number 1: Couldn’t be, then who? Number 3: Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar, was it you number 2? Number 2: No not I Number 3: Couldn’t be, then who? Number 2: Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar, was it you number 4? Number 4: No not I Etc etc etc It sounds simple enoug
h but once you’ve had a few it’s very very hard! **Rafts** All you need is a few ice trays, a few straws and a drink of your choice. Each player has their own straw and own tray. All the compartments of the tray are filled with booze and on the given command players use the straw to drink from every compartment... the first to empty their tray is the winner! **Rez-a-Roller*** You’ll need a dice, a shot glass and a bottle of something fun for this ‘un. Basically you take it in turns to roll a dice and the number you roll dictates what you have to do... 1 = Roller drinks 2 = No one drinks 3 = Person to your left drinks 4 = Person to your right drinks 5 = Social, everyone drinks 6 = You pick 1 person to drink **Hotshots** This is a dumb game we began playing one college lunchtime but it’s actually kinda fun. You need a coin and some shots. Players sit opposite each other and must flick the coin from one edge of the table to the other... you have 4 attempts to do this e.g. flick 1 gets the coin to the middle, flick 2 gets it a cm away from the edge, flick 3 gets it on the edge. If you get it balanced on the edge you then have to flip it into the air and catch it. If you don’t reach the edge in 4 flicks, if you flick it off the edge of the table or if you flip it up and don’t catch it you lose and must take a shot! **Chug** You’ll need a full pack of cards, a large cup and a bottle of something – make sure you have a lid on it as the lid will be used as a measurer (full shots are just too much for most of us!!!!) and this measure is called a chug. Shuffle the cards and at random pick one.... the card then dictates what you must do! Ace of any suit – everybody takes a chug! 2 – 6 red (diamond/heart) – YOU must take however many chugs as corresponds to the n
umber on the card e.g. 3 of hearts = 3 chugs. 2-6 black (spade/club) – Give the corresponding number of chugs to any other player. 7 “Waterfall” – EVERYBODY has to chug. You have to hold it in your mouth until the person to your RIGHT has stopped. The person who drew may stop first. 8 “Thumb Master” – The person who drew the card puts their thumb on the table. The last person to do so takes a chug. 9 “Rhyme” – The person who draws the card says a sentence. The person to their left must rhyme with the last word in the original sentence. This continues in clockwise order. Rhyming words may not be repeated. If you repeat a word or can't think of one, you chug. 10 “Category” – The person who draws thinks of a category, such as “Eastenders characters”. They then name one e.g. Fat Pat (Beale/Butcher/Evans). The person to their left must think of another one, e.g. Dot Cotton. This continues in clockwise order. If you repeat an item or can't think of one, you chug. Jack of any suit – the blokes all have to chug. Queen of any suit – the ladies all have to chug. King of any suit – the first person to draw a king puts a chug in the big cup and keeps the card.... the seconds person does the same... as does the third... the person to draw the fourth king must put also put a chug in the big cup and then drink all 4 chugs in one go! **Russian Roulette** Needed – 10 shot glasses and a bottle or two of vodka! Fill a few shot glasses with vodka and the rest with water... mix them all up... each player must take a glass and drink it’s contents... although players will not know which ones are full of vodka and which ones contain water – a devlishly funny game! Enjoy your night (or day if you’re in uni ;)) just please don’t blame me for your hangover! Oo
hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh go on then.... one for the road! **Old Mother Hunt** It’s always rather easy to tell when my father has had one to many because he always insists on telling everyone his favourite rhyme, which goes a little something like this, “Old mother hunt had a rough cut punt, not a punt cut rough, but a rough cut punt... and a fiddle with a flag and a pole in the end!” Now say that to yourself at speed and it’s very easy to how one can make a rather amusing drunken boo boo! Now recently I discovered another variation of this rhyme... in the form of a rather fun drinking game. Requirements: 1x swift tongue, 1 x bottle of something strong, 1 x shot glass.... best played with two people. You will need to nominate one person as “The Leader”. This is the person who initiates each new verse, the other person, “The Follower” must repeat what they say. Ok it begins like this... Leader: 1 fat hen Follower: 1 fat hen Leader: 1 fat hen and a couple of ducks Follower: 1 fat hen and a couple of ducks Leader: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks and 3 brown bears Follower: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks and 3 brown bears Leader: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown bears and 4 running hares Follower: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown bears and 4 running hares Leader: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown bears, 4 running hares and 5 fat females fixing for a fight Follower: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown bears, 4 running hares and 5 fat females fixing for a fight Leader: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown bears, 4 running hares, 5 fat females fixing for a fight and 6 Sicilian seamen solemnly sailing the seven seas Follower: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown bears, 4 running hares, 5 fat females fixing for a fight and 6 Sicilian seamen solemnly sailing the seven seas Leader: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown b
ears, 4 running hares, 5 fat females fixing for a fight, 6 Sicilian seamen solemnly sailing the seven seas and 7 sheet slitters happily slitting sheets Follower: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown bears, 4 running hares, 5 fat females fixing for a fight, 6 Sicilian seamen solemnly sailing the seven seas and 7 sheet slitters happily slitting sheets Leader: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown bears, 4 running hares, 5 fat females fixing for a fight, 6 Sicilian seamen solemnly sailing the seven seas, 7 sheet slitters happily slitting sheets and 8 sock cutters cockily cutting socks Follower: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown bears, 4 running hares, 5 fat females fixing for a fight, 6 Sicilian seamen solemnly sailing the seven seas, 7 sheet slitters happily slitting sheets and 8 sock cutters cockily cutting socks Leader: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown bears, 4 running hares, 5 fat females fixing for a fight, 6 Sicilian seamen solemnly sailing the seven seas, 7 sheet slitters happily slitting sheets, 8 sock cutters cockily cutting socks and old mother hunt had a rough cut punt not a punt cut rough but a rough cut punt and a fiddle with a flag and a pole in the end! Follower: 1 fat hen, a couple of ducks, 3 brown bears, 4 running hares, 5 fat females fixing for a fight, 6 Sicilian seamen solemnly sailing the seven seas, 7 sheet slitters happily slitting sheets, 8 sock cutters cockily cutting socks and old mother hunt had a rough cut punt not a punt cut rough but a rough cut punt and a fiddle with a flag and a pole in the end! So where does the alcohol come into this then? WELL... you try saying that lot when your pissed!!! Yes, every time you mess up or take to long to repeat you must take a shot! Enjoy... oh and be warned... this is NOT to play with the vicar over a bottle or two of communion wine – play it and when you hear some of the things you hear yourself saying by accident you may well be shocked!!
Well it is that time of year once again, and I had my little xmas party at my house on Friday night. Incidentally I havent been able to look at an alcoholic drink since then. For those of you who havent tried making your own mulled wine yet, take a look at my recipe, it was really straightforward. You will need: One bottle of red wine, doesnt have to be too expensive Half Pint of Orange Juice (I think that is 250ml!) Half Pint of Water Some Cloves Some Cinnamon Sticks three tablespoons caster sugar about three shots of Brandy (Again, you dont need the VSOP) One Apple chopped One Orange sliced Method ------ Empty the red wine, orange juice, water sugar, cinnamon sticks and cloves into the pan, together with the chopped fruit. Stir occasionally over a low heat, but do not allow it to boil. Maintain the heat for about twenty minutes, and add the brandy. Take off the heat and allow the drink to stand for about one hour or so. When you are ready to serve it, heat it again, dont let it boil and serve in wine glasses. If you like you can include some of the fruit in the glasses, although I prefer not to do this. However the fruity pieces do taste very nice, by this time. Quite a potent drink, so you probably only need one glass per guest. I had first tried mulled wine last year at a friends party, and I didnt really enjoy it. However I thought I would give it a try myself this year, and I must admit it was absolutely delicious, and my guests all enjoyed it too (or they are very polite people and didnt want to offend me!) It does cool off quite quickly though. On the whole a great drink to start a party with, at this time of year! BTW, if you want me to post my home made mince pie recipe, to go with it, let me know! I didnt want to include it here as it was drinks only.
