"Night-Enders": Drinks That Will End Your Night

by Stanely Stuyvesant · August 4, 2010

We've all had those nights where we misjudged our alcoholic intake and had to call it quits (whether we liked it or not), often not remembering much or worse making fools our ourselves.  Sometimes it's unintentional, sometimes intentional.  Here's a short-list list for your to avoid or enjoy.

Probably the best thing about Night-Enders is their names.  Some speak directly to their consequences like the Zombie, others have misleading and seemingly innocuous names like the Long Island Ice Tea.  Do you know of some yourself that aren't on the list below?  Let us know!
