Question by ariwa: What is in the alcoholic drink called a “Mystic Biscuit”?
I just had my 21st birthday and was given a drink called a mystic biscuit. They told me what was in it but i was almost drunk and can’t remember. I’m just curious because i can’t find it online. Does anyone know? I know it had amaretto, jager, and vampire blood vodka, but beyond that, no idea.

This should be under medical..but anyway :P

Alcohol use and subsequuent alcoholism effects several neurotransmitter systems in the brain, including opiates, GABA, glutamate, serotonin, and dopamine. Increased opiate levels help explain the euphoric effect of alcohol, while its effects on GABA cause anxiolytic and sedative effects.

Alcohol inhibits the receptor for glutamate. Long-term ingestion results in the synthesis of more glutamate receptors. When alcohol is withdrawn, the central nervous system experiences increased excitability. Persons who abuse alcohol over the long term are more prone to alcohol withdrawal syndrome than persons who have been drinking for only short periods. Brain excitability caused by long-term alcohol ingestion can lead to cell death and cerebellar degeneration, Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, tremors, alcoholic hallucinosis, delirium tremens, and withdrawal seizures. Opiate receptors are increased in the brains of recently abstinent alcoholic patients, and the number of receptors correlates with cravings for alcohol.
