>he drinks red wine
In the Roman Republic and Empire, sweet white wines were the most desirable, and generally only the elite class could drink it. The Sweet red wines were for the middle classes, and the bitter, dry red wines were reserved for the poor, the slaves, and the soldiers.
Yes, if you like "fine" red wine, you are just like the lowest of plebeians of Rome.
Enjoy your shit taste

why is it always the americans who have to feel special snowflakes?
2 weeks ago, a califag was trying to convince me that italian coffee is shit and the only good coffee in the entire world is one made with his own unique grinder, forged from the autism of an anglo-saxon
>he doesnt know the feeling of going in a tavern with friends and getting shitfaced from red wine
the only white whine I drink is retsina desu
>shitfaced from red wine
Only hobos do that kind of shit here
they have wheelchan, all anglos should move there, Australians and Canadians only shitpost, NZ is poor quality poster, England is generally always butthurt and posts the same few things over and over, and America is loud opinionated and stupid.
>getting shitfaced off red wine
Baiju, Kamok, Pastis and Cognac.
Red wine is only for meal, white wine if seafood or fish, Sauternes with foie gras, champagne for special occasions to open the night.
>he doesn't put ice cubes in his wine
How do you keep it chilled then?
I've already shitfaced myself with red wine but it's useless
since it's to get wasted I'm not going to buy fine wine anyway so I might as well buy beer if I don't like strong alcohol. Wine is for dinner and celebration in which case you buy a good one
You can find shit wine that comes in 5l packs for like 8 euros and people often buy them in the parties I attend but they don't drink only that it's only to start
>5l packs for 8 euros
yeah we got these here too, pic related. Although I dont see people really drink wine in parties tbqh. Red wine is for food and for taverns. The hobos get drunk on retsina, which is strong white wine.
Outside of that people mostly drink beer, tsipouro, ouzo, raki, retsina etc. Hard drinks are for clubs and parties
>Liqueur de café vendéenne
Ah ouaip intéressant, je sais pas si ce serait trop mon truc mais je le range de côté dans la liste des spiritueux français dont les étrangers ne soupçonnent même pas l'existence
I'm a beer guy anyway
That being said in my village and nearby since I live in the most covered by wineyards places of France, every village has its own wine cooperative and production so I can find very decent wine for really cheap. The only time I get wasted only in wine is during the local "festival" because they sell wine that was produced only a few km away and it's really good and cheap
yeast, sugar and water are the only things you need to get drunk
flavor is for women and faggots
But anon you are the one saying it's better to get wasted on wine, I am the one saying it doesn't matter since passing out and throwing up everywhere before the night is over is useless anyway
I think we have two different conceptions of what it means to get drunk. I thought only 16 years olds and Brits thought drinking to he point of throwing up was the standard.
I ordered a glass of red wine once in an Italian restaurant in the US. It was the worst wine I've ever tasted, bar none.. If all red wine in the US is like that I kind of understand your hate for it.. But when I buy a €3,- bottle of Portugese or French red wine to drink with some cheese or red meat, it tastes perfectly fine. I didn't really used to buy into the 'this wine goes well with XYZ' labels, but for red wine and cheese it's really true.
getting shitfaced and drunk doesnt mean getting nausia, throwing up, losing memories etc. it means getting buzzed to the point where you dont give a shit and can talk freely and let your emotions flow.
throwing up is for teenagers
It's really what I do tho
I used to drink strong alcohol now almost only beer during parties, I drink like 2.5 litters (usually good beer about 8% alcohol), throw up because of the amount of liquid in my stomach, then drink again right after and room again for food too
yeah but what else are you supposed to do in a social situation, socialize?
>tfw in a night club with friends who dancing and having fun while you're trying to hide your embarrassment and lack of dancing ability by constantly having a drink in your hand
>tfw last year I drank a box of red wine
>top 3 worst hangover in my life
>next day I'm going to the army for the first
>I can never again enjoy red wine because of the trauma
>I drink like 2.5 litters (usually good beer about 8% alcohol), throw up because of the amount of liquid in my stomach
Wat... Don't you piss? If I'm slamming beers at some point I piss almost non-stop...
>20 years old
>never been to club
>only go to music festivals where I spend the day drunk and pass out at night
>old friends (known them since I was a child) invite me to nightclub
>everyone is dancing
>I'm just sitting there thinking the music is too loud
>drink three bottles of vodka overnight by myself
>no one ever invites me again
If you get drunk properly it's beneficial to throw so you have less hangover. Drinking until you puke is standard stuff here in the north, especially, but not only for teenagers.
It's a different sort of culture. Finns often get drunk to the point where we are semi unconscious and forget our miserable live in this miserable country. In southern Europe people drink much less to get drunk and not properly drunk, but only "living room drunk"
Getting shitfaced can be fun occasionally but I would actually prefer if our alcohol culture was more like Greece or Italy. People here get so fucking fucked up beyond repair that it's depressing
Yeah I do, a lot. But I'm really into beer now so I can handle a lot
I don't do it on purpose, if I don't throw up no problem it's even better, but what I mean is that now that I drink beer I don't throw up because I'm feeling bad but because I have too much liquid/gas in my stomach, so I can very well keep drinking afterward
Whereas when I still drank vodka and other 45% drinks throwing up meant I'd be asleep in 5 minutes
i know the exact feel. this is why i dont go to clubs
the only place i can dance is a beach bar desu. dont know why
Need at least one of these in me if I want to have a good time with just beer
>get the thoughts
Is that Italian for paranoia or something?
Also that really doesn't work for me.. If I smoke weed when I'm piss drunk the entire world starts spinning and I'm very likely to throw up and/or pass out, despite by tolerance for Cannabis being fairly high. My alcohol tolerance is low though, and being built like a skeleton doesn't help. (190cm/70kg)
It really depends on the person really, I have friends who drink until they pass out, they lose their phone, ids, keys, they need to be carried home and such.
But mostly yes, standard drunk means social drunk, people who throw up and pass out are considered a bit obnoxious past the age of 22-24.

pro tip, eat more food
He means that if he smokes weed when drunk, because if he does it sober he starts thinking about his depressing life etc.
I have it too
>In southern Europe people drink much less to get drunk and not properly drunk, but only "living room drunk"
That depends, I do/did a lot of parties in appartment or houses where you better not thow up everywhere and break stuff, but often with like 3 friends I used to go to the vineyards outside of the city and spend the drinking hard just yelling bullshit, half fighting each other etc until we pass out in the car, and I know a lot of other people doing it
That being said yeah you probably do this a lot more in Northern Europe but the idea exists here too
>oh god I need to do this and do that I'm such a failure are hear people looking at me, why does my hand tremble, Do I have to piss fuck I just pissed one minute ago fuuuuck did I close the door???
These thoughts :\
>I used to go to the vineyards outside of the city and spend the drinking hard just yelling bullshit, half fighting each other etc until we pass out in the car, and I know a lot of other people doing it
psst, this is depressing from my point of view
but whatever floats your boat
>he can't afford good wine so he shitposts on /int/ about wine
My father lost all his friends to shit like that.
>thinks he knows everything better than anyone
>hard headed leftist
>as soon as he is a bit tipsy he starts ranting in a really irritating way
>ended up fighting with all his friends
>even fought with my mothers parents and grandparents who did WW2, Algeria and Indochina because he was of the opinion that he knew what happened then better than them
Fuck every time I eat with him and we drink we end up fighting, last time I made him cry because I made a joke about jews and sung Le Chant du Diable (marschiert in feindesland) to tickle him.
pic semi related, he was in the PSU with Valls but fought with him when Valls ripped him off to become director of campaign of Jospin.
Kek I know I used to smoke often when life was simpler, most of my friends still smoke so I only take puffs from their weed when I'm really drunk and forgot about real life already.
I just wish I could enjoy it while watching a movie or something but it's alright, alcohol is still my friend.
I didn't take it in a bad way, I just didn't see the difference
It's not really to feel good as in "my life is shit", it's more like after a period of exams or stressful work you release everything
