List Rules Affordable does not mean "super-cheap" here. Bottles must sell for under $25. Vote for the best bang for your buck.

Whether you're living it up in college, trudging through the post-grad struggle, or trying to maintain a budget like the responsible adult you pretend to be, there's one thing we can all agree on: alcohol is a hefty expense. While it's disturbingly easy to blow through half of your rent money on bar-hopping in the span of a single weekend, it's also easy to get wasted without feeling like you've wasted money. As college parties have taught us, it's a well-known (albeit, unfortunate) fact that the cheaper the booze, the worse the taste (hello, Popov!). However, we've done some sleuthing (and by sleuthing, we mean, drinking) and have found cheap alcohol brands that won't make you feel like you're drinking gasoline.

All of the bottles on this list are twenty five dollars and under (most of the liquor brands listed are for 750 ml bottles, just an FYI), and are good quality, despite their low prices. So pour some shots, make a mixed drink, or sip on some of these these cheap, quality alcohol brands. This list of cheap booze guarantees that just because you plan on breaking some rules (responsibly, of course), doesn't mean you have to break the bank.
