You know you're drinking with folks who considered beer a soft drink until a few years ago right?

When its cold , you drink!

Went drinking with a couple of Russians in the UK a few years ago.

They were drinking from these 300ml non-resealable bottles of Russian Vodka (ie normal bottle tops that you open with a bottle opener). So, you open it, you finish it.

They were drinking these like we drink beer.

And then we had to walk on black ice on the way home !!! Fun !

My experience, they will drop you when drinking vodka. Switch to beer, and they have no legs.

We used to buy 2L bottles of beer in a small town called Udachnye. Not long, and every Russian at our table was down and out. But when they pulled out the vodka or Armenian cognac, we ran.
