Does everyone who buy it swig it straight from the 2 lire bottle? Does anyone ever pour it into a glass then sip it?
for the pedantmongs
of K Cider/Strongbow Super all the way.
with not one but TWO pint glasses of white lightning at ATP Pitchfork.
I've only ever seen it through blue plastic. What colour is it?
this story confuses me. i'm going to open a bottle of wine and get drunk.
you think, "I can't be bothered going to the bar, I'm going to get two drinks at once" and then you spend ages meandering around with two drinks looking confused and people pity you
someone feed me please.
but do have a bottle of hockwein. i'm tempted to drink the whole thing so i'm so drunk i forget my hunger and just fall asleep. plan, yes?
just consider it training for ATP.
i don't really know why either, strangely i couldn't get any sense out of him.
my first in a while <3
What you do is get a three litre bottle of frosty jacks for £2 at the shop near school then go up the underpass to enjoy your freshly purchased beverage.
you don't let anyone else have a drink though because that was YOUR £2 that you mam gave you to 'Get some chips or something when you're out, pet, you haven't had any tea'
Then you lie on the floor for a bit.
and try to get someone to come with you and buy you a pizza from the skanky pizza place on the industrial estate.
Whilst walking there you see two of your friends getting off with each other in a bush. You make a mental note to tell everyone when you get back to the underpass.
various people, including the people who were getting off in a bush, have stolen it on the way back and you've dropped it all over beside the skanky craft shop on the skanky industrial estate . You forget to tell everyone about the bush based scandal.
You sit down on the step and have a conversation about how theres totally CCTV cameras on the factory JUST OVER THERE and the video footage of the scandalous alcohol and drug abuse will definitely be transmitted onto your ma's living room telly and OH SHIT IS THAT THE POLICE?!
Everyone's ran away and you go and get the bus home because you have to be in by half ten when you're far away enough to have to get the bus home. You see some sweet grafitti in the underpass and you remind yourself to bring some spray paint next time so your memory will be there FOREVER. You know you won't though because if your mam seen you had some spray paint she'd get PURE SUSPICIOUS and probably not let you out anymore.
I slightly lolled.
in about twenty seven years.
I posted on dis a couple of months ago. Not a patch on rabbit's work though.
1) Are you calling me a 'massive yob girl'?
- Are you calling me fat?
- Are you saying i'm a yob?
- They were just lezzers.
the experience was how i would imagine drinking wood feels
SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF MONEY!
It's friday night. Lay off.
If I see an opportunity to crowbar an Eddie Argos lyric into a thread I'm going to take it! With two hands. Count them. Two hands.
I had to go to a squat in Waterloo earlier this year. From my findings I would say that swigging from the bottle is the preferred method of consumption. I reckon I could have fashioned a pretty sturdy raft from the empty bottles of White Ice to sail across the lake of piss within. Not a glass in the place.
White Lightning is a brand of cheap white cider (or more accurately fermented corn syrup) brewed by Scottish Courage in the UK. Although originally available in a 3 litre bottle (advertised as 3 litres for the price of 2 litres), in 2004 Scottish Courage announced that bottles of White Lightning would be produced at a maximum of 2 litres in order to restore value to the "cider" drinks market and to pursue the perhaps difficult goal of promoting responsible drinking amongst consumers of such products.
Scrumpy Jack is a brand of dry cider, 6% alc. vol., produced in Hereford by Bulmers, a subsidiary of Heineken. Scrumpy Jack is also produced under licence in Devon by Czk1.
It was first produced in 1973 by Symonds Cider and English Wine Company of Stoke Lacey. The family firm was taken over by Greenall Whitney in 1984 and sold to Bulmers in 1989. Exports of Scrumpy Jack began to Ireland in 1990, Spain in 1991 and Sweden in 1992. In 2000, UK sales exceeded 200 million litres. The brand was also publicised by Symonds official sponsorship of the England national rugby union team in the mid 1990s, the English cricket team, and the Cricket World Cup in 1999. The original Stoke Lacey plant closed in 2000.
It was effective stuff at a young age and that's all it needs to be, effective. It was probably slightly more bareable than White Lightning as well.
One of my mates even wrote a song called "Lambrini Days" :)
weird considering he has quite a refined taste in food.
now has a white lightning bottle shaped groove worn into his teeth, pretty grim.
Frosty Jacks is where it's at, like back in the day £2.40 for 3 litres! WIN that's like 30units of alcohol, so that's under 10p a unit
but only because they dont make turbo white anymore
i miss the days of drinking shit cider in a park, just cos financially it was so incredibly cheap to get drunk that way. now i drink pints of beer for £3 minimum so getting two people drunk for the same price as a pint was crazy cheap.
I drink it, mix in a bit of blackcurrent juice and it's awesome! It'll be the cool thing in a couple of weeks, you dirty fucking hipsters.
melted polystyrene and used bin bags which have been strained through a tramps aresehole. Even mixing Frosy Jack with Kestrel Super doesn't make it taste nice. People like Bulmers make 6.7% alcohol ciders which still taste like a good cider but if you're just looking for bang per buck stick with trampjuice
I have a womens refuge behind my house and a park in front of my house. I regularly see women lying unconscious in the park with empty Lidl white cider bottles around them
Special Brew and Pernod is nice
Take one bottle of Frosty Jacks, pour a pint into a glass. Sprinkle some strawberry popping candy on top (that stuff that explodes in your mouth) and enjoy more than you ever thought possible.
I saw a white cider years ago called Three Hammers. It had a cheap looking picture of a hammer smashing ice on the front. My flatmate drank half a two litre bottle of it and was violently ill most of the following day.
i can imagine Home Clubber using it in a pigeon and White Lightning cassoulet.
The final email about it on the day referred to the theme as 'White Lightning'. How we laughed. It's that sort of office.
and you went along as a tramp! oh theo.
