* ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' allows the player to engage in a drinking contest, with the final round (before the opponent passes out) being a beverage known only as scurrd. It is, from a game-rules perspective, statistically ''impossible'' for any normal human being to imbibe scurrd without losing consciousness; it requires a Constitution score one point higher than what a first-level character is capable of having. A character with magically-enhanced or dwarven constitution can safely drink the scurrd, which results in the opponent passing out, and earns the PC massive respect from his buddies. If you successfully drink it, it temporarily doubles your hit points. It's the game world spontaneously recognizing the sheer {{Badass}}ery of your feat.

** Also in ''Inquisition'' is a Qunari ale called Maraas Lok. The Iron Bull claims that the second shot is easier to swallow because the first one kills the nerve endings in the drinker's throat.

** There is but one drink that can beat a Serra Madre Martini... the awesome Large Wasteland Tequila. At 100 survival skill it gives you +9 strength, +3 charisma, and -9 intelligence. (The maximum stat level is 10 and the minimum stat level is 1.) It makes you as strong and as ''stupid'' as statistically possible unless you have the Whiskey Rose perk when you drink it. Sweet Jesus.
** So basically if you have Cassidy as a companion when you drink it, it'll turn from a GargleBlaster into a SuperSerum. She can also make Moonshine if the Courier provides the ingredients: two mutfruit, yeast and... a fission battery.

you have the Cass, and her Whiskey Rose perk when you drink it. Sweet Jesus.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', Ancient Dagoth Brandy can be found, and its effects include semi-permanent reductions to both intelligence and willpower, with no benefits to show for it. Considering the drinks have likely been fermenting in the presence of plague-infested evil for a few hundred years, its potency is understandable.

** There also is a miniquest where the player is required to go to several bars in the game and drink the strongest drink at each one, each having a unique and nasty effect.

* In ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'', mixing any two drinks for your "meal" tends to result in you becoming tipsy as sin and getting the "Unlucky Cat" skill, which is indicated by you falling over immediately after consumption and then starting the quest with 25 health and 25 max stamina.

* ''VideoGame/IcewindDale2'' has a drinking contest against a barbarian you may participate in. The drink of choice is fermented boar's blood. Whether you succeed or fail is based on your character's constitution score.

* ''Videogame/DwarfFortress'': It'd seem dwarves make their brews so damned strong it has literally affected their physiology to the point of having a massive, extra-effective liver, and even ''then'' weaker ones will often die from alcohol poisoning. Other species will often pass out with just one serving, and in particular goblins are absolutely terrible at handling that level of booze; most of your goblin visitors that get past the belligerent patrons will probably drink a single mug and drown in their own vomit afterwards. It also evaporates so quickly when exposed to fire it's almost (though not quite, [[VideogameCrueltyPotential unfortunately]]) explosive.

A GoodBadBug in an older version caused cats to die of alcohol poisoning just from trying to clean themselves off after a walk through the tavern.
