* UsefulNotes/SouthKorea gives us [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soju soju]], which looks like wine cooler, but its alcohol content can vary significantly -- up to 45% alcohol by volume. It's manufactured in such a way that it sneaks up on the drinker. It's particularly popular with [[YanksWithTanks American military]] personnel in Korea, who don't know what they're getting into and wind up having to be carried to the barracks.

* Jeremiah Weed, a bourbon whiskey sold in UsefulNotes/TheUnitedStates, might seem tame compared to some of the very-lethal drinks on this page with its mere 100 proof--[[http://www.check-six.com/lib/Drinks/JeremiahWeed.htm but it's also an icon]] of [[YanksWithTanks American fighter pilot culture]]. Despite how awful it tastes -- or, perhaps, ''because'' of how awful it tastes. The Music/DosGringos song about it describes it as "something in between Lysol and alcohol, with a touch of gasoline."

* To heroin users who relapse after being clean for a while, heroin itself can be this to them. A dose that an experienced opiod users would normally tolerate can be fatal to a relapsed user. Even worse is the varying purity of street drugs and the fact some unscrupulous sellers have secretly replaced their heroin with ''even stronger'' (as in 12-25 times stronger) stuff like fentanyl.

* The "Adios Motherfucker": White rum, gin, tequila, blue Curaçao, vodka, and a splash of bar lime. Like Jäger, "guaranteed to ail what cures you."
* Long Island Iced Tea tends to be stronger than most cocktails; it's made of equal parts vodka, tequila, white rum, gin, and Triple Sec, diluted with lemon juice, gomme syrup, and Coke; it averages out to about 22% alcohol by volume. And since they come in large glasses, you're getting a large quantity of booze. Some places will add to the insanity; a bar in Mobile, Alabama started the trend of the "Paralyzer", where the Coke is replaced with [[UpToEleven Everclear]]. This variant is also called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Long Island From Hell]] and the Franchise/{{Highlander}}, because in the end, you will need only one.

--->''Into a pint glass, doubles (i.e. 50ml measures) of the following are poured: gin, whisky, rum, port and brandy. A small bottle of stout is added and the whole topped up with Champagne... It tastes very smooth, induces a somewhat metaphysical elation, and rarely leaves a hangover.''

** The traditional version is an all-whiskey mix: one shot each of Jim Beam (Bourbon), Jack Daniel's (Tennessee), Johnnie Walker (Scotch), and Jameson (Irish). Some variants switch the Jameson out with Jose Cuervo tequila, and some people go farther with this version and choose to replace one of the three whiskies with Captain Morgan rum, but it tends to disagree with the tequila in most people's stomachs (remember: "Captain Morgan is a racist -- he hates Mexicans!").

* Most instances of homemade hard liquor -- "Moonshine" -- are Gargle Blasters. It's generally not only stronger than an irritable rhinoceros, but it also tastes like a combination of industrial cleaners and whatever vessel it was cooked up in. In fact, car radiators were one of the more common vessels. Methanol frequently shows up in significant quantities in moonshine, and it can cause severe vision impairment. The OtherWiki has a guide to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moonshine_by_country Moonshine by country]].
