College is an exciting, experimental time. For maybe the first moment in your life, you follow your own heart instead of the beat of the crowd. You try new things: You take an oceanography class, you make best friends in an a cappella group and you familiarize yourself with the wonderful, bizarre world of collegiate drinking.

Today we honor the imagination and moxie with which college drinking occurs. The following are actual drinks HuffPost Editors admitted to making in our past lives. We commend our own resourcefulness, talent and youthful wonder with which these cocktails were masterminded, and we pray to the Porcelain God that we shall never have to drink them again.
