15.) Jagermeister ($21.99/750ml)
Cough medicine. That is exactly what Jagermeister tastes like when you drink it straight up. But be careful, this is 70-proof and will fool you at first.
14.) Mad Dog 20/20 ($3.99/40oz)
Nope, moving on. Unless you want to hear how Mad Dog 20/20 will change your life, you might want to avoid it at all costs. But sometimes you need to take charge of your life and drinking one of these will get you loaded in a hurry.
13.) Taaka ($8.99/1.75ml)
Taaka vodka. What a great name for vodka. What happened? Did they run out of names on the first day of training? The name is terrible but the flavor is much worse. It is nearly impossible to find a way to describe such horrible vodka.
12.) Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 ($16.99/750ml)
No one does it better than Jack. When it comes to domestic whiskey you will not find a better brand with a better flavor for a better price. Jack Daniel’s carried a few of us through some tough times and it will continue to help college kids deal with finals.
11.) Skyy ($17.99/750ml)
Skyy vodka is an original and one of the best on the market since 1992. We have said this before but when you need to make a cheap vodka purchase, sometimes the cheapest in the store isn’t the best choice. Anyone can save enough money to afford Skyy, don’t pretend you can’t come up with $20.
10.) Jose Cuervo Especial Gold ($19.99/750ml)
The name Jose Cuervo can sell itself. The flavor isn’t anything to brag about but the overall affordability combined with the fact that you are still drinking tequila makes this stuff worth every penny.
9.) Crown Royal ($24.99/750ml)
As far as Canadian whiskey goes, this is the best you will be able to afford. You might not find any big Crown Royal drinkers outside of a college town but that doesn’t take away from its value.
8.) Bacardi Gold Rum ($15.99/750ml)
Enjoy Bacardi, we do. This is one of the best tasting rums on the market and that includes all brands, not just the cheaper ones. It is worth the purchase even if you can only afford to buy it once.
7.) Miller Light ($9.99/12-pack)
This isn’t going to be difficult to figure out but Miller Light, Coors Light, and Bud Light are only separated by one thing, the Rocky Mountains. There differences between these three are so tiny, the only person that would notice would have to have a very special palette.
6.) Coors Light ($9.99/12-pack)
As we have said before, Miller Light and Bud Light are all the same. The rankings were determined based on popularity. Even the cost is the same across the boards. However, people will be people and choices will be made. Don’t be a douche, drink whatever you can whenever you can, it’s college, remember?
5.) Smirnoff ($19.99/1.75ml)
Smirnoff is one of the most popular vodka’s on the market today. Maybe it is the flavor choices or maybe it is because women love this stuff. And if you haven’t figured it out by now but if the ladies love it, the men will too.
4.) Captain Morgan Spiced Rum ($16.99/750ml)
Thanks to social media and TV, Captain Morgan has grown into one of the largest marketed rums in the United States. It is so easy to throw a pirate themed party and have the entire crowd throws up the Capt. Morgan leg pose. Crap, even we do it from time to time. It is also pretty good tasting for what you will end up paying.
3.) Natural Light ($8.99/12-pack)
If you wanted to understand what drinking your own urine tastes like, Natural Light is a great start. Beer tastes better when you have plenty of it and with Natty Light, as most people call it, you can buy more than enough to take you through the weekend without getting a bank loan.
2.) Bud Light ($9.99/12-pack)
When it comes to beer, Bud Light wins. Not only is it a cheap drink, it is terrible too. Yet somehow, college kids in America that drink beer have found themselves floating a keg or two of this stuff. Once you grow up and understand what beer is supposed to taste like, you might never pick up another bottle. But in the meantime, drink up and enjoy college why don’t you.
1.) Absolut Vodka ($19.99/750ml)
Thank you Sweden for keeping our drinks full and lowering our women’s inhibitions. Absolut is at the top of the list for one reason, selection. There are easily 350 drink recipes that include Absolut vodka and the flavored ones just add to the mix. Once you find out the cost is below average, the bottles fly off the college grocery shelves.
