My favourite type of fraternity party was no doubt what we at Kendry called hotels – but many other campuses call ‘Round the World’. A corridor of bedrooms were turned into the party room, and each bedroom had a different themed drinks. Drinks varied depending on the frat house but staples were Apple Pie Shots, Dr Pepper Shots, Ice Block Shots and Scorpion Bowls.
Whilst my liver groans now at what I used to drink at university – I have to admit a Dr Pepper Shot (a shot full of amaretto dropped into a glass of beer) would taste pretty good right now. As would an apple pie shot – apple juice, vodka, whipped cream and a pinch of cinnamon.
It changed the dynamics of a party as usually frat parties were held in large basements or party rooms, but once moved to the bedrooms they got you talking to different people. Each room was hosted by one or two brothers that you couldn’t fail to talk to when you went in. There would usually be a few other people in the room too and it because of the small nature of the room you’d usually strike up a conversation.
Just in case your curious – here’s a link to the flaming Dr Pepper Shots!
Enjoy and drink responsibly!
