I thought I would follow up my last post with a post on cheap alcohol, as everyone knows this a big part of university life, and most drink to get drunk. Basically, the cheapest alcohol per unit is cider. Learn to love cider. A cheap strong cider is cheaper than even Tesco Value booze (minus cider), including vodka, wine etc.
My personal favourite:
There are a few other White / Hard ciders that are pretty cheap that might be worth trying such as White Lightning.
Sainsburys Basics Cider
If you want to go as cheap as you can go it doesn't get cheaper than Tesco Value/Sainsburys Basics Cider. £1.32 for a 2L bottle, 16p a unit. It's only 4.2% though, so you have to drink a lot more volume to get as drunk, which will have you going to the loo a fair bit. The picture makes it look very pale but it isn't, and it tastes quite nice. It's just a standard cider taste, nothing funny going on, I'd prefer it to Strongbow any day, taste wise.
Let me know in the comments what you drink / drank while at university, and I might add it to the list.
