I decided to conduct an experiment. As someone who enjoys a cocktail or more when she goes out, sometimes it feels like the drinks at bars are watered down. Not to call anyone out by name, but there are at least three bars in downtown Boise whose cocktails go down way too easily and it's not because I've ordered the premium tequila.  As such, I decided to document an evening of drinking at Amsterdam Lounge to see how they compare. Would I catch a heavy buzz quickly, or would I down drink after drink with little effect?
The metric for measuring this: Typing “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" into my notes app. It's a sentence that utilizes every letter in the alphabet, which is called an English-language pangram. Odds are you were typing this in computer class to learn home-row and test how quickly you can type. Don’t know that it’s been used in this capacity, but it is now.
After one tequila soda with lime:
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
After 2 tequila sodas with lime:
The quick brown fix jumps over the la I dog
After 3 tequila sodas with lime:
Yeh quick brown Fox jumped over the Mach dog.
After 4 tequila sodas with lime:
The yuck brown Fox links owe the lacy duh!
Clearly 4th took me over the edge and that sentence is barely recognizable. So, for the record, just four tequila sodas will get you nice and toasted at Amsterdam. They are making real pours when crafting your cocktail. And that's refreshing.
