We'll have to apply some math to make it all fair, but we should be able to make it work. Give different Senators various handicap levels based on body weight and sex. Base it on actual ethanol content, not just volume (so the Senator drinking light beer doesn't automatically beat the Senator drinking straight vodka.) Stream it all live on CSPAN. And not just one Senator has to drink, the entire Senate does. The first side to have a Senator lose their liquor loses.
For added fun, make the Senate majority leader a position that can be challenged at any time via a straight one-on-one drinking contest. Any Senator, at any time of day, can challenge the majority leader to a one-on-one drinking contest. This will of course create its own legislative tactics. I predict the rise of the "inebriation filibuster," where a minority party tries to slow down the majority leader by keeping them plastered 24/7 via repeated challenges to their post.

As you can tell, the word "arak" in BM seems to cover all types alcohol drinks (beer, wine, hard liquor etc) as all types of alcohol can cause intoxication.
Not to be confused with South/South East Asian Arrack however (despite bearing similar name), which is made of sugarcane or fermented coconut flowers.
To clarify, when the taste profile of a whiskey, for example, has things like licorice, caramel, apple, or almond - does that mean producers actually add these things to the alcohol?
If not, how do these flavors come about and why have I never tasted caramel apples in my whiskey?
Proposed § 5.149 sets forth a new standard of identity for Absinthe (or Absinth). Absinthe products are distilled spirits products produced with herbs, including wormwood, fennel, and anise. Under Industry Circular 2007-5, certain absinthe-type products are now allowed in the U.S. market, but are generally classified as distilled spirits specialty products or liqueurs (if they meet the standard of identity for a liqueur). Under current TTB policy, the word “Absinthe” may not stand alone on the label; therefore, labels use multi-word names that include the word “Absinthe” (such as “Absinthe Vert” or “Absinthe Superieure”). TTB believes that consumers understand what absinthe is and that it is appropriate to set out a standard of identity for absinthe. The proposed standard reminds the reader that the products must be thujone-free under FDA regulations. Based on current limits of detection, a product is considered “thujone-free” if it contains less than 10 parts per million of thujone. Finally, TTB proposes to supersede Industry Circular 2007-5 in its entirety, without incorporating the requirement that all wormwood-containing products undergo analysis by TTB's laboratory before approval. TTB will verify compliance with FDA limitations on thujone through marketplace review and distilled spirits plant investigations, where necessary.

Math is fun!
Does anyone have experience ordering liquor online? As far as I can tell Virginia does not allow residents to order liquor online. Just looking for a confirmation here.
There are some products that the ABC does not carry and there is no easy way to obtain them without driving 2+ hours out of the way from SW Virginia to get them.
Anything but having to practise and maybe be bad at it, dear god please.
Im putting together a time capsule away for the family. It will be selaed next month and opened in 2030. We were thinking of putting a bottle of brandy / scotch or something that would survive sealed on the closet for about 20 years. After researching for the best alternative, I found conflicting reports. Most enthusiasts claim that once bottled, spirits will not "age" any longer, so a 100 year old bottle of a 12 year aged scotch still tastes like 12 year scotch... In the other hand, many folks claim that aging (of brandy in particular) produces an enhanced flavor.
Seems like a case for Science.
Perhaps we will need to open a few bottles... for science! Thanks in advance :-)
