Motel Magazine's Booze Reviews
  • Whiskey - I'm drowning in a whiskey river.
  • Vodka - rushin' to get drunk. (ha ha, get it?)
  • Gin - aka Vodka with bush flavoring
  • Rum - arr!
  • Tequila - the best thing to come out of Mexico since (insert your own joke here)
  • Other - stuff we might create a category for later.

—Margaret

"Right from the start I knew this was for the ladies. The bottle, the color all say Chanel. Definately lighter and kinda sweeter, the after explosion more girly."
—"Special Guest Reviewer" Paul
