For many students, two priorities top even the most crucial final assignments:

  • Getting drunk
  • Getting drunk cheaply

While I don’t encourage binge drinking (always) it can be revealing to look at the actual cost-per-ounce of the things you drink frequently. GetDrunkNotBroke.com breaks it down into those terms.

Cheapest Way to Get Drunk

A few fun facts about things you might drink a lot:

  • Of the “light beers,” Natural Light generally does best, beating out even Keystone.
  • Carlo Rossi and Franzia are by far the cheapest way to get a buzz.
  • Straight Smirnoff is only more expensive than light beers by a matter of cents. The costof mixers will probably widen the gap, though.
  • Two-Buck Chuck, both red and white, (though not calculated on the site) rank among the 10 cheapest forms of booze available.
  • Liquors like Bacardi 151 and Everclear even beat out malt beverages.
  • If you’re in about the $6-for-a-six-pack range (semi-nice beers), Pyramid Hefeweizen does by far the best.
  • It would cost $105 to get the equivalent of “6 drinks deep” by drinking O’Douls — which is not that efficient — but it would cost 6 times that to use Cristal champagne.

And, for your reference, the top 5 cheapies, in order:

  1. Franzia “red” wine
  2. Carlo Rossi Burgundy
  3. Franzia chardonnay
  4. Olde English 800 High Gravity
  5. Mad Dog 20/20 Grape Wine

I almost threw up, just seeing those 5 items written in the same vicinity.
