Strong Alcohols

Hello, everyone. In my original Esek story, I am creating an alcoholic drink for the culture. It is called rose-water, and I am requesting help on perfecting the ingrediants. Rose-water - depending on the intensity of certain ingrediants, the exact ingrediants used, and the dosage taken - is a drink that will do anything from calm a person down to knock them out for the night. Served chilled, rose-water is composed of fermented roses, spring water, and any number of natural pain killers. Rose-water differs from maker to maker, but common ingrediants are catnip, hops, lobelia, passionflower, scullcap, and willowbark. Plus, as I mentioned, the fermented roses, the water, and the ice.

I am thinking about adding another ingrediant - an already in existence alcohol to give the drink an extra boost. Remember, I want rose-water to be the sort of thing one drinks when they just want to sleep and not think or dream about anything.

However, I am non-drinker. What I am looking for is life experiences. I am looking for drinks that cause any of the following: knocking the person out quickly, blackouts, memory-loss, and/or dulled pain. I'm guessing that many of the things on my list are overlapping and/or common to many alcohols. I'm looking for something strong. Also, I'm going to need specifics on the alcohol type and perhaps the brand so I can hit google again to find out how they make it.

Edit: I want to thank everyone that helped me create my drink. The name has been changed to Scott's Rose, and it relies more on the drugs involved than the alcohol. Here is the finished product.Collapse )

Thank you.
