Truth: This can ring true sometimes since clear liquor is alcohol in it’s normal state upon distillation and hasn’t been aged, etc. Just because a liquor is clear though doesn’t mean it’s cheap. You must learn to choose your liquors wisely.
MYTH: Switching between the two liquors (clear & dark) will make you more intoxicated faster.

MYTH: Clear Liquor will get you drunk faster than Dark Liquor
