In the spirit of the Engineer

#1
Its Friday afternoon, Im still stuck at work and Im bored, so I began reminiscing about some outstanding p1ss ups Ive had with the lads and what I actually drank before my memory cells were burned into oblivion.

A favourite of our troop was the "Prairie Fire" a concoction consisting of tequila and tabasco sauce, gauranteed to curl the toes. Anyone who frequented the Winkle when John and Anna had it in the Traz should know this drink.

Another was the "Afterbirth" , baileys and blackcorn, obviously this curdled and looked like an afterbirth, nasty to get down without coming up.

The "Depth Charge" a shaken for 10 mins can of grolsch which had its side pierced with a dart the the hole stuck over your mouth. mmmmm foamy!


Anyone got any other horrors? Ovbiously dont include the "Engineer". Every toffee wrapper of worth knows what one of those is.

At the Rugby club one evening, pints of Pernod and Black was the order of the day one evening. When consumed with liberal amounts of "Scrum Down", and "Mines a Hooker", which were effectively half pint glasses run along the top shelf and topped up with either orange or cranberry juice. Drinking that all night does a lot to the stomach.

The result was that when I staggered into the daylight through the fire door at 0800 the following morning, what looked like a rainbow that had been constructed from porridge spewed from my mouth against the fence.

I won't even begin with the certain shade of green poo that spurted from my ricker when I got home.

Sappers and retired bootys in the same bar, never a good combination.

known as "shotgunning" when i was a sprog in 37 fd sqn.

in 37's bar you used to buy a "tizer" (shot of vodka, shot of bacardi, just a mere dash of blackcurrent & topped up with lemonade) looked like paraffin BUT by feck did it get you leathered quickly.

on my leaving do from "cecil arms" pub fitba team (strood) my doris decided she would try them. she could not walk after half a dozen & i had to pour her into the taxi home. :D :D :D :D

Ratsenpuss (not sure of the spelling?). F..king lethal drink sold in the bars around Hohne. Remember me and a mate used to see how many glases we could neck before throwing up, or before the (real) DT's started. Remember being chatted up by two young pad's brats...not half bad looking and about 18. they made it clear that me and my mate would be in for a 'fun time'. we thought about it for a couple of miliseconds then asked them if they fancied a ratsenpuss or three. swift tipple, both young ladies threw up and me and matey told them to bugger off and leave us in peace while we finished the bottle. regrets? oh yes.

....also home made chilly vodka sold in a bar (can't remember the name, but the landlord didn't understand the term 'closing time') up gabriels hill in maidstone. used to give it away for free if you could neck a largish glass in one. used to get charged after three or four though. and f..cked up.

'slipinthedeitch' drunk from empty crisp packets, and then looking at the holes it burnt in them.....

Rat Bone cider, brewed and sold locally in Ross-on-wye, called so because its fermented in open casks in a barn where the rats fall in, drown and get mixed in to the end result which is a cloudy brew that turns you blind..if you look hard enough you can see bones (ish)

i once had a drink actually called on the menu "suffering bas**rd". It was in evergreens club in Garmisch and was about a pint and a half of purple muck in a HUGE goldfish bowl glass. I nearly died..really.

Recipe?
Errm.. Dammit! Had to phone them last time I needed it!!

Lemme go trawl see if I can find it.. off the top of my head...

Milk
Vodka
Grenadine
Tia maria

Measures to suit colour and kick that you desire

*edit*

Just checked on google and it comes up with the following:

50 ml vodka
25ml tia maria
25ml grenadine
fill glass milk


Vodka Tia Maria Grenadine Milk Lots of ice

Take a High ball glass and pour in lots of ice. Add 50ml of vodka Add 25ml of Tia Maria Add 25ml of grenadine Pour in milk to top of glass and stir well. If you get it right the milk shouldnt curdle !!!! Tastes like chocolate milkshake looks like strawberry milkshake very nice !
I would add this makes a great entrance drinks for people at Summer Mess Do's. Serve by the Pint Not the Highball (fekkin' Poofs..)

:D

Have we had the Cement Mixer yet?

Shot Glass (or highball for the larger mouthed ones amongst us)

2/3 to 3/4 full of Baileys, then carefully lay lemon or lime juice on top to fill the Glass.

Neck it back , swill it round your mouth (ala a cement mixer) making sure you swallow it before it mixes and goes solid

Great fun when the drinker leaves it too late. :D :D :D

ohhhh, here I am sat in the desert and you barstewards have me dreaming of pints of Harvey wallbangers from the Bridge.......hazy daydreams and a tear in the eye..........
With that in mind, I had a lovely couple of lagers this afternoon, after a game of rugby. Although a Blue Mist will usually blow my socks off.

Vodka, Gin, Cointreau in equal measures, making 50% other 50% is made up with lemonade. :clap:

From my days in 37 just before you, they were known as Vampires. Same mixture but with Gin as well. They used to get banned with boring regularity. One memorable night, after several (or more) of said concontion, had me and Geordie W****t locked up after trying to nick the OCs sword from the display cabinet to take it to the Flaumbaum. Bailed out by the badge next day and gated. New Years eve 85, so we sneaked out of camp and went to Mr Drinks in Hannover :boogie: . Fantastic night but started 86 in the sh1t. Oh well :roll:
Not to mention copius amounts of Ratsepuss at Georges on other occasions :drunken:

....Although not a concoction it was a real killer!

Occasionally we would go to the bar at 325 Engr Park in Antrim and if you were unlucky you might get picked to go in the chair. Once in the chair you were fed half pints of Pocheen (Poteen).

I recall being in the chair once and THATS all i can remember !

I also remember the Ratsipuss (spelling ?) FMP that made you gip quicker than gettin tongued by Knocker!

Potcheen is a good starting point to oblivion and beyond, at least you know whats going to happen.

I didn't quite grasp that point with the Slivovits (Sleepinaditch) in Bos.

I was older and wiser then.. and just as stupid.

Great memories abou....................

Yes, that`s a good one, Had many a ditch first time out there. But the second time seemed to be more of the Croation Fighting Brandy. A bit like how you would imagine brown meths to taste.
Myself and a few others had many a jug full in the secret bar in the attic of the engineer lines in DJ bks.

So, rather than start a new thread, I thought i'd ask!

Any decent cocktails, in the Spirit of the Sapper!

Hurrah for the CRE!

Bulldog version of Pink Polarbear
1 pint glass, fill to half way with vodka and or bacardi, add ice top up to half inch below rim with ice cold milk then top it off with grenadine.
Quick game of dice, then sweet oblivion after a few with some Labatts Ice
