5 Drinks You Should Leave at College

As we graduate from college and head out to face the real world, our lives tend to change. 1:00 p.m. stops being the average time that we wake up, Cap’n Crunch stops being acceptable for all three meals, and there are no longer dining halls where we can swipe a magic card and eat “for free.”

Along the same lines, there are some drinks that you should leave behind with your student ID. Here are a few of them:

  1. Sex on the Beach. College should be the last time that you use the act of ordering a drink as a thinly veiled attempt to get guys to think about you naked.
  2. Anything from a funnel. It’s cute, it’s fun, it’s over when you throw that hat in the air.
  3. Long Island Iced Tea. After you figure out what this drink is, it takes no more than three weeks of ordering it exclusively before it ends badly — once, or more than once — and then, in theory, you never order it again.
  4. Screwdrivers. You actually should have left these behind in middle school.
  5. Any kind of vodka out of a plastic bottle. Vodka isn’t supposed to taste like rubbing alcohol…and you know this.

      Seriously, who sleeps until 1 pm on anything like a regular basis? Maybe senior year is a transition, but I don’t know anyone who sleeps past ten unless she’s sick.
