Part of the college experience is going out to the bars with your roomies and classmates. The best college bars offer drinks you can afford to keep the party going!
Here is a list of 5 drinks every college bar should be carrying for their college students.
If you’re not a beer drinker, you better have a good drinking budget! This is because beer is cheap and can be found anywhere. A good college bar will offer a variety of beers at cheap prices to meet the needs of college students who are regulars. When in doubt, go for a domestic brew. If you are feeling a little adventurous reach for a malt! Either way you can never go wrong with a bar that offers a variety of inexpensive beer.
Rum And Coke
Rum and coke is an easy choice for college students. It’s simple to order and the majority of students really like the taste. If you want to get a bit fancy with it, order a rum and root beer or a rum and sprite. Be sure that the bar offers a cheaper choice of rums. Not every student can afford top shelf prices. Most of the time however, if you don’t know what to order, Captain Morgan is a pretty affordable choice.
Vodka And Redbull
Vodka and Redbull is the drink of choice for many college ladies and some guys don’t mind it either. Red Bull with just about any alcohol is fabulous in itself, so it’s no wonder this is a great go to for college students. Not to keen on Redbull? Maybe, the bartender can make you a Screwdriver with vodka and orange juice. Red Bull has lots of caffeine and taurine, which is like drinking a cup of coffee. As a college student, this is important to have energy for early morning classes or exams.
Tequila shots are always great when you are wanting to hit the party hard. However, some college students like the drinks that they can just sip on throughout the night. A Tequila Sunrise is all that and more! The recipe includes orange juice, tequila and grenadine. Unlike every other alcohol, tequila is said to be an upper, not a downer, and can lift your mood. That’s why college students love it plus the Tequila Sunrise tastes incredible!
Any whiskey will do for those hardcore college drinkers. However, when you put whiskey and lemonade together, you are in for a night of good old college fun. The sweet and sassiness of this drink will please the frat clubs and college athletes alike!
These drinks are timeless and any good college bar will have them on hand for their younger customers. Always be sure to ask about alcohol prices to get the better deal. Money is so important when you are in college and on a budget. Also, your college years are about having fun, learning and experiencing life, so drink responsibly. When in doubt, call a Lyft or Uber. Use your best judgement when you plan to go out drinking.
