Alcohol is no exception to the rule of abundance or the rule of variety. If you want your party to be the best that it can be you need to provide an abundance of alcohol, and a variety of alcohol.
This means mixing it up a little. Sure it’s cheaper to buy a keg and save yourself the trouble, but if you want to have a great party you need to follow the rules of abundance and variety.
Everyone who has ever been to a party is bored with the standard jungle juice made with fruit punch and half-assed sliced fruit.

Have you ever thought to yourself, “This is bullshit. I need to be drinking FASTER”? Then chances are shotgunning beer could be right for you. But things were not always so simple. In the landmark 1956 study entitled “Examining of the Physical Limitations of Beer Consumption”, 81% of college students said they were somewhat disappointed or very disappointed with the standard 12 ounce beer can, citing the limitations it imposed on binge-drinking, blacking out, and fornication.
