Andrew W.K.'s All-Purpose Guide to Partying

Drinks

Andrew W.K.: "Man, I want to have every kind of fluid that we could possibly have, from wines to sweet wines, wines that foam, wines made out of potato, vodkas, tequilas, gins, a full selection of brandies.

"I would have cognacs and cordials. Then, I would also have milk. I would have tea. I would have fruit juice. I would have Everclear. I would have root beer. I would have all kinds of pop. I would have grape soda. I would have chocolate soda. I would have carbonated coffee and I would also have water.

"My favorite drink is water for sure because I've tried not drinking it before and I almost died, so credit is due there. I went three days without drinking water. I was just drinking other things and I guess that they had water in them, but I noticed that by the second day, my hands started to feel really weird.

"They started to look wrinkled and old—not like liver spots, but just wrinkled and leathery—so I realized then maybe I was starting to get dehydrated, but instead of drinking pure water, I was drinking milk and wines that foam and all that stuff. That was not a very good combination either because wine and milk makes that curdled stuff in your stomach. I ended up basically shitting out of my mouth.

"Then, I got very dehydrated. I was drinking coffee, too, thinking that would help, and all of that actually just made it worse. It was like if you're lost at sea and you think, 'Oh well, this is great. At least I've got nothing but water,' and you start drinking that seawater, it doesn't work even though it's water. It actually makes you more dehydrated.

"I like all alcohol. Well, I'm not that crazy about gin. I don't mean that as a disrespect to gin itself or to anyone who likes gin. I like that it's made out of sweet, sweet berries. But no, I love vodka, I love whiskies, I love sweet cherry cordials, I like wines that foam. I like Rumple Minze, too."
