Are you planning to travel with your friends for your winter break? You want to make it memorable. Since you can legally drink, make sure not to forget to pack a mini shot. But you want to share the drinks with your friends. But what do they want to drink?
What is a Popular Mini Shot Drink to Bring?
During holidays and winter breaks, operators prepare for college students who want to drink with their buddies. But buying drinks can be quite expensive. So, you might want to consider packing your own mini shots and some bottles for your friends.
You may think that the most popular drink for college students is beer. But it turned out that most students prefer spirits. The top brands will include Svedka, Malibu, Jack Daniel’s, Smirnoff, and Absolut, among others. You may also bring Jose Cuervo or Captain Morgan.
But remember though that spirits are stronger than wine and beer. It contains 35% pure alcohol while a glass of wine can have 11% alcohol. Thus, before you pack a mini shot spirit, make sure to check the strength. And if it is too strong for you, you can serve it with non-alcoholic mixers to hide the alcohol’s taste. It will also make the drink easier to consume.
White Claw is a popular brand. But you can also pack Smirnoff and Truly mini shots. College female students prefer hard seltzer over spirits and beer. But some males choose beer over spirits or hard seltzer.
The market for hard seltzer is huge. Most hard seltzers have 100 calories. For its alcohol content, it falls between 4% and 6% alcohol by volume. It is the same as light beer. But it is not a healthy drink. However, it is a healthier option than sugar drinks, like wine coolers or fruity cocktails. This is the drink you want to go for if you want a gluten-free, low-sugar, low-calorie alcoholic drink. Now, if the bottle is advertised as real fruit juice, the amount of the juice is tiny and you will not get any nutritional benefits.
Of course, what is a college get-together without bottles of beer? But most college students choose big beer brands, like Busch, Miller, Budweiser, and Keystone. Some voted for Stella Artois and Guinness.
One of the reasons to choose beer is its accessibility. It is a common alcoholic drink that you can find in most supermarkets. However, because of its alcohol content, make sure to drink in moderation.
