Get Your Booze Game On Quickly with Buckfast

A tonic of wine, sugar, chemicals, and caffeine made by monks in Devon, England, called Buckfast, is apparently one of the most brutal (and fast-acting) ways to get a buzz from alcohol that can be obtained legally on the market. Among the colloquial expressions used to describe Buckfast are: “Buckfast: gets you fucked fast,” and “wreck the hoose juice,” both of which do an excellent job of conveying the tonic’s well-deserved reputation. As with all things that lead to bouts of uncontrollable fun (and chaos), Buckfast is cited in many police reports involving alcohol and has earned another, less-marketable reputation as the drink of choice for delinquents and hooligans, as all things usually are.
