As one experiments with different types of booze, they begin to learn how their body responds to each kind. Some select their preferred alcohol by taste, while others simply base their decision on the way it makes them feel. All it takes is one bad experience with a particular type of liquor to permanently ruin it for you, but all it takes is a good one for you to consider it your go-to drink when you’re seeking your best buzz. Of all the alcoholic beverages, these are some that deliver a memorable, unique intoxication experience!

Tequila: steroids for your personality
Tequila is like steroids for your personality. You’ve got to be careful because the buzz it provides intensifies whatever mood you’re in significantly. So, if you drink tequila while you’re happy, you’ll become kid-on-Christmas levels of ecstatic. If you drink it while you’re a little sad, you’ll spiral into an abyss of misery. Mind you, whatever place tequila takes you to; you’ll be in that state unapologetically. If the quote “Dance like nobody’s watching” were a living, breathing person, it’d be you with a belly full of tequila.

Rum: like fireworks - fun if you're responsible, deadly if you're not
When you have the opportunity to get buzzed 1700s pirate style, you absolutely should. That being said, you want to make sure your rum buzz remains nothing more than a buzz, because all it takes is one ration too much and you’re having a bad night (and morning after). Just think of rum like fireworks – these can be fun if used responsible, or I could sustain a significant physical injury if not.

Red Wine: the best type of buzz
When you’re aware of the health benefits of red wine, it eases your thoughts as you sip away glass after glass of grown up juice. Wine drunk is widely considered the best type of drunk, because of how peaceful, yet entertaining it can make you. Immediately you have the pizzazz of a co-host on a roundtable TV talk show. It gently carries you to a relaxed state of intoxication that’s like, I might make a bad decision and text my ex, but at least I’m getting all these antioxidants.

Whiskey: basically a formal dress code in alcohol form
This provides you with that mature, sophisticated buzz that’ll have you feeling grown but also laid back, like the cool aunt/uncle who is aware of what’s in style and what lingo the kids these days are using. Whiskey is essentially a formal dress code in alcohol form, and there’s no way to not feel cool while drinking and getting buzzed from it.

High ABV% Beers: you're loopy without being sloppy
Unlike aforementioned cheap beers, high ABV% means drinking less and feeling more. One second you’re fine, sipping a brew, then suddenly your buzz comes in like a wrecking ball. It’s strong enough to make you loopy without being sloppy. For example, if you’re at a bar you won’t get kicked out for public intoxication, but you also probably won’t be able to win a game of pool with your lack of precision.

Champagne: confetti and kazoos in alcohol form
This is the most glamorous buzz of them all, but that probably has a lot to do with the fact that it’s mostly consumed on celebratory occasions. It’s a holiday or someone just accomplished something and champagne is confetti and kazoos in alcohol form. I’m not sure that a bottle of champagne on a humdrum Tuesday evening for no festive reason would result in a happy buzz, but since it is associated with joyous occasions, it has a special, electrifying vibe to it.

Cheap Beer: you get better at beer pong
When you can buy a case of inexpensive beer, you should know in advance that it’ll probably take consuming several of them to acquire a buzz, but once you get there it’s actually quite pleasant. It’s also worth noting that what cheap beer lacks in intensity, it makes up for in not costing you a ton of money. The feeling it gives is comparable to a massage, but not from a professional masseuse, it’s more like a back rub from someone with small, inexperienced hands. While that description might not sound particularly unpleasant, keep in mind that this is the buzz commonly experienced by broke college students, taking their beer pong performances to the next level.

Fireball: like being in a haunted house
This "whiskey" tastes like harmless liquid cinnamon candy but never fails to surprise drinkers with its buzz. Drinking fireball is like entering a haunted house – you know you’re about to be snuck up on but somehow it still catches you off guard.
