Drinking Games: Baseball

    I don't know about you guys but beer pong is getting boring.  Baseball is a lot faster  and  more fun in my opinion. I learned to play this game sophomore year of college and I have to say I prefer this over beer pong any day!
        Anyway what is baseball... simply put baseball is beer pong and flip cup combined... with the level of shit talking stepped up a notch.

The Set Up
Team size:3-4 

Its basically 4 cups in a vertical line on both sides of the table...
The cup closest to the MIDDLE of the table is 1st base
....and it goes 2nd 3rd and Home being the cup closest to you...(its a simple setup ....i mean shit if you need a picture ill do one better. I will personally drive my friends 10 year old sister  to your house and let her set it up for you)

Anyway you can fill these up two different ways with your drink of choice non-alchoholic... or alcoholic.(I recommend beer since a lot of drinking goes on in this game and anything else would be a bad choice)

  1. Fill them up all equally
  2. Fill 1st with the least amount of alch and incrementally go up until home is filled up with a full beer

Anyway now that you have your shooting "bases" set up done; put 3 cups opposite each other as if you were playing flipcup, these are for the base runners.(for those of you not to sharp on your sports terminology I will assume you are girls and refer you to this blog http://2ballsnostrikes.wordpress.com/.... if your a guy.. well i guess its time to stop taking those ballet classes, put your purse down and watch a ball game.) Again these cups are labeled 1st 2nd and 3rd... 1ST will always be closest to the hitting team. (Side note give yourself some space in between cups.)

The Game

       Flip a coin and decided how many innings you want to play... 6/9 make sure the team that bats(shoots) 1st doesn't bat(shoot) last... This is done just so you don't get in a drunk argument with your friends or competition...hey lets face it shit always gets heated during competitive drinking games...
      Now each team gets 3 outs... This is how you get an OUT. I shoot the ball.. and it completely misses the cups that counts as an OUT...if it hits a cup bounces up and someone from the other team catches it before it hits the table or group it is an OUT. And now lastly if you get on base and challenge someone for flip cup and lose you are OUT.(I will explain this more in a bit)
   Just like regular baseball hit a home run thats a point plus... the other team must drink all 4 cups hit a triple you go to the 3rd base cup and the opposing team must drink the 3rd base cup and all cups before it(1st and 2nd) and so on. All cups must be finished and  reset before the other team shoots.

Stealing bases
Now it gets complicated. Say you just hit a single... because you suck and can't handle hitting anything else...You go to the 1st base cup... It is your time to shine and make up for your shitty single. Stealing is basically playing flipcup for the extra base...if you win and your opponent is still struggling or you are just a cocky mother fucker you can continue stealing(playing flip cup) and go all the way home...now the person on the other team has to beat you in flip cup in order to get you out...so they will have to play you cup for cup... curtesy rules ... don't start playing when no one is there to defend you...However there is a fun rule to implement... and that is balking... I'm not explaining the baseball team but basically the runner must ALWAYS touch the cup before the "fielder"(guy trying to get them out) .anyway if the person trying to get the runner out touches the cup before the runner has a chance to steal then the runner gets the free base.

(The best example of this was someone i saw ask the person to check their cup and challenged the amount of beer in it... us guys do not like being called pussies when it comes to how much we fill up our cups.. the kid grabbed it and then realized he was tricked)... so use any and all means to get them to touch that cup.. anything goes and it just makes it more fun and the shit talk definitely increases due to that.

Anyway go try the game... its a lot simpler after playing it a few times and getting everyone on the same page... good luck and enjoy and remember drink responsibly...

Fixing the Blog Set Up

        Ok sorry guys I'm new to this and thought I could have posts on every page on here but that does not seem to be the case. I have started using "Labels" Basically I will put up a search bar somewhere if it is not up already and you will be able to search up any of the topics... For example Drinking to get drinking games.. or vodka.. for vodka recipes and so on.. I will update this post with all the possible labels I will be using to make life easier for everyone.
      I will however be keeping the Hangover Remedies since theres not much to build off that one and the Music Section will not take up that much space so it will also be kept as its own page for now... Anyway if you guys have any more suggestions f on how to make this easier to navigate or easier on the eyes let me know thanks guys.

"Fuck Genres I like Music"

      THE music section is FINALLY updated. Enjoy and leave comments/email TimeTwoDrink@gmail.com if you have any song suggestions that you think no one has heard or a genre you want to see more songs listed for.
     All new songs will be put up as videos the older ones will be listed under the Genre they fall under. This section will most likely be updated once or twice a week on a Monday and Friday. Hope the struggle through Monday wasn't that bad.... actually I hope you all suffered since I had a pretty rough one my self.

The Beer Review: Wells Banana Bread Beer

So in-between posts I figured it would be nice to give you guys something to read. We will be posting reviews of beers, or hard liquors that we have had and recommend. Do not judge us... we've had our share... we like to try new and unique types of alcohol but we are responsible every time we drink... from what I remember at least and well never mind no need for those stories...just yet.

Wells Banana Bread Beer

Alch Content :5.2%
Price :Approx 5 dollars (give or take a few depending on state tax etc)
Taste: Spicy/Banana taste
Smell: Smell the bananas right away
Looks: Light Brown Ale type with thin foam on top that goes away quickly

     I don't know how they did it... i was expecting a shitty beer that tasted nothing like bananas let alone smelt like it. I actually didn't even buy the beer for the taste initially I got it mixed up with the Liquer store since it was called Wells also. I figured id support their brewery and give it a shot. Little did i know this had nothing to do with it. I would not say this is the  best beer that I have had but on a scale from 1-10 I think this would get around a 7.5 if I was a russian judge and a 8.5 If i was extremely bias.. so an rating of 8 is safe.
     On a personal note the strong taste it gives me is something I would not drink continuously though out the night. It is not a heavy beer however I would rather savor the banana taste and drink this beer slowly and casually. Unless you challenge me to a game of flip cup I may have to reconsider then.
     Although this beer is a year round beer I would recommend it for the Thanks giving/Holiday time period.

Jolly Rancher infused Vodka

Watermelon Jolly Rancher Vodka 

 Heres some great tasting vodka without burning a hole in your wallet
(Don't mind the picture you can use cheaper vodka don't trust me)

What you need:

      -this infusion will help make cheaper vodkas smoother then usual. I have made this using Svedka, Absolute and Smirnoff... but you can also use Segrams, KU-L, and Sobieski.If you are not satisfied with the straight shot flavor add more jolly ranchers or use this as a mixer with non-alchoholic beverages.
Jolly Ranchers
      -side note for Jolly ranchers you may want to just go to amazon or google and find a single flavor. Do this once you find which one you enjoy the most. This saves money and time when having to buy a few bags of jolly ranchers and sorting through all of them in order to 

Advice before starting...Take a shot glass or a few cups and put 1 of each jolly rancher flavors and place in seperate cups..add a shot of vodka and let the jolly rancher dissolve take a shot of each or split it with your friends somehow to determine which flavor you like the most...On a personal level cherry and grape did not taste very well so I Stay away from those. While Sour Apple and Watermelon tasted the best. 


  1. Separate the flavors
  2. For a Per handle basis I would use close to the full pile of jolly ranchers. My pile was close to 50 maybe even 60...I had a large amount of vodka and bought 5 bags of jolly ranchers estimated 10-12 of each flavor per bag.. Again this all depends on your taste start with a reasonable amount and keep adding to meet your taste. Do not over do it though since it will come out syrupy if you put say...20 jolly ranchers into a water bottle of vodka.
  3. After the Jolly Ranchers are in the bottle do NOT put it in the freezer this will slow down the breakdown process. The breakdown will take anywhere from 8-10 hours for the candy to dissolve fully. If you are in a hurry shake them up a bit every so often I personally don't do this because it is unnecessary  work. The vodka will be done in 10 hours just make give it a good shake 3 or 4 times to get the jolly ranchers that are stuck on the sides of the bottle unstuck. Sitting there shaking the bottle helps speed up the process but you don't lose or gain any flavor by doing this.
  4. After fully dissolving put the vodka in the freezer and let it chill.. The vodka will not freeze or make a slush because the bottle is basically pure vodka so remember that when you drink this. It is not diluted and therefore be responsible with it.
Extra Tips
Add some carbonation to it to dilute the vodka and maybe give it a little more flavor... Sprite works well but again its personal choice... 
-If you really messed this up and want to salvage your vodka.. .add the equivalent flavored martini mix to your desired jolly rancher flavor...I did this with Sour Apple since I didn't have enough Jolly Ranchers so I just borrowed half a cup of mix from my neighbors for the full bottle and it worked just fine.
-You can also add these to other mixed drinks instead of buying a flavored liquor or vodka.  

-For those of you that are going to bitch about why I didn't make every flavor. Its because the above is my friends flavor of choice. He had extra bottles left over after a grad party and decided to try to make watermelon. Prior to these Absolute has been used and it has tasted just as good but again using a cheap vodka and adding more Jolly Ranchers saves you a good amount of money and the only difference will be in the burn which comes with most vodkas anyway.

Hope you enjoy if you have further questions comment below...

Welcome to Time To Drink

      Okay so i’m going to cut out all the typical “this will be the best blog in the world...we will stop hunger in Africa...etc” There is no need to feed you bullshit i’m not running for the Mrs America pageant.  No offense to them though!! In fact if any of you know a contestant please send them my way. In regards to this very important topic a quick side note...I have a friend that will take one for the team so if she gives you that "only if he has someone for my less then average friend she's really nice I promise!" line don't worry that is not a problem...
     Anyway this blog is basically just two college students that like to experiment with alcohol and mix random stuff to make great mixtures. We figured its time to put some of those mixtures up on the Internet as well as make you guys aware of many other drinks that you have not heard of yet ranging from dirt cheap to expensive. This blog will cover anything alcohol related including reviews, hangover remedies and drinking games(other then beer pong come on guys its getting old). We will even throw in a section for a random list of songs that you may have forgotten about or never heard of since A) they are fairly new or B) you live under a f*&#ing rock. Anyway stay posted for the 1st mixed drink recipe... ill give you a hint its going to be something infused in vodka.
