List Rules Upvote the worst alcohols to try for your first serious foray with adult beverages.

Every culture has its own rites of passage. From baptism to scarification, the recognition of a person’s transition into adulthood is a huge part of life. And in the western world, there’s only one true way to celebrate – with your first drink. Legally, you aren’t supposed to have an alcoholic drink until you turn 21, so that must be how old you are, right? Great! If you’re not 21 yet, you’re definitely holding out until midnight on your 21st birthday for your first sip of that sweet sweet nectar of the gods: alcohol. If you’re reading this while gearing up for your first time drinking, you’re in luck because there are definitely some alcohols to avoid during your first rodeo. This list is a collection of the worst alcohol that you could chug for your first adult drink.

Here are a few first time drinking tips for all the noobies out there. First of all, don’t do shots. Yes, they’re tempting, but they’ll leave you with a million dollar hangover and won’t even stick around to leave a tip. Whatever you do end up drinking, make sure it’s not bad alcohol like Steel Reserve or anything that comes in a plastic bottle. You’ll know if you’re drinking less than acceptable booze if you taste what can only be described as battery acid and old balloons. If your 21st birthday is around the corner, congratulations, BE SAFE, and keep this list of the worst alcohol for your first drink handy - you’re going to need it.

For the alcohol veterans out there, vote up the worst alcohol that kids these days should steer clear of for their first time drinking, and then add the drink that you think is the worst thing to get wild on for your 21st birthday - maybe one that ruined your first few days of adulthood?
