I always ask Lisa how many drinks she's had and she'll say "only three bottles of WKD..." then she'll tell me ten minutes later that she's also had ten shots of Sourz or Corky's or whatever, but "they're not a full drink so they don't count" :crazy:

Anyway, the question is, are alcoholic shots classed as a "drink"?!?!

Technically a shot of alcohol is not a drink unless you add a mixer.

But by the Buckie Declaration of 1803 it is also to be considered as a drink if you finish the bottle.

Hence the reason Scotland is full of alkies who've "only had the one".

sourz is weak as hell and i drink it as a drink- by the glass, if that counts? :D lol

a propper shot eg, aftershock, vodka, jagermeister etc. is 1 unit of alcohol, a bottle of WKD is 1.4 iirc but youre likely to get drunk more quickly from shots as you tend to get through them faster and have more of them before feeling "full" lol... think a shot of sourz is only like 0.4 units so 10 of them is still less than 2 pints worth (providing you are using strict 25ml pub measures lol) but girls tend to get drunk more easily anyway due to their tissue makeup :D
