Let's stop pretending - cheapest ways to get pissed from the supermarket on a regular basis

It doesn't matter anymore, let's do it.

My suggestion is Co-op own brand. Really cheap Czech lager in bottles, more palatable than the Polish stuff.

swig hand sanitizer?

2 litres of 5% cider, for fewer than two notes, must be a contender.

Cider should be the cheapest since it attracts a flat rate of tax up to 7% alcohol.

I drank 8.5% cider for six months and the subsequent dental bills for fillings (once I eventually found employment) were horrendous. Vodka and juice with whatever beers I can get is my plan this weekend.

Paraffin, with a touch of honey.

I've been using alcohol hand wash soaked into a double thickness of toilet paper. Works a treat.

Swarfega enema.

Yeah, but not all of us have that sort of money, HoL.

Morrison's mead is very good - less than a fiver and has never given me a hangover.

I'm guessing booze will be the next sell out item in supermarkets.

CarlosFandango - 21 Mar 2020 01:25:17 (#11 of 58)

I'm now going for quality over quantity. Getting seriously pissed has little appeal these days, especially on my own.

I was sizing up wine In Waitrose and the 12 quid 2015 Crozes Hermitage seemed a far better prospect than two bottles of something more ordinary.

And Talisker was on offer at £32 so if I do suddenly feel the need I can get blootered on that.

€0.69 plus 8 cents deposit for a half-litre of Holsten Pils (the real, local stuff, not yer forrin shit) is what I get, and it's not going to change. Unlike bread, milk or bog-roll, there's still a reliable supply of it. Hurrah!

On my last visit to a huge M4 corridor Tesco, beer-wise (3 items only restriction) there were 3, pint-can four-packs of Carlsberg and that was pretty much it apart from gluten-free Peroni, Corona lager and a case of Bud-Light which looked like it had been tampered with. I counted myself lucky - 12 pints for just over a tenner.

Do not do the Guinness, it makes your poo black and sticky, and your farts smell like your Great Uncle Burt has been disinterred from the allotment.

I reckon cheap sherry must score well on the %ABV / £ scale.

( Says upgoerfive, approx. 3/4 through a 1l bottle of dry Amontillado, which (for some reason), amongst the ZOMBIE UPRISING Sainsburys had a shelf full of.)

upgoerfive - 21 Mar 2020 03:39:44 (#16 of 58)

Fuck me - sherry tastes of arse. With added arse.

And it gets you the wrong kind of pissed.
