During college, we're all either four things: tired, stressed, broke, or all of the above at the same time. One of the few things that most college students do to ease their stress is hanging out with friends on the weekend. While this is a good solution for some people, most college students are usually super broke. With the help of the cheapest liquors known to mankind, being broke while wanting to get a little tipsy will no longer be a problem. All of these options retail for less than $20 in most stores. 

#SpoonTip: No matter what you're drinking, make sure to always drink responsibly. The prices listed below all correspond to a 750ml bottle of each liquor.

1. New Amsterdam Vodka: $14

Depending on where you buy your vodka, the price of a standard bottle of New Amsterdam will be $15 or less. If you opt for its peach flavor, mix it with Sprite. Plus, their popular pink lemonade-flavored vodka Pink Whitney, is delicious to drink as a shot, mixed with soda, and more, retailing for around $13.  

2. UV Blue - $10

Being in college is hard. And after a long week of exams and papers, most students want to unwind with a night out with friends. Good thing that UV Blue makes it possible for many by only costing $10. I hear many good reviews about this sweet-tasting vodka. You can mix it with almost any chaser you desire, such as tonic water, lemonade, Sprite, or even Gatorade. 

3. Malibu Rum - $14

If you're going to a university where most of the school year is freezing, you can jet off to sunny islands via a delicious and cost-effective Malibu drink. This option of cheapest liquors goes down smooth as a shot, pairs well with cola, and is best with pineapple juice. If you're feeling fancy, you can even garnish with a cherry or fresh pineapple slice. 

4. Smirnoff - $15

There's no doubt that Smirnoff is classic cheap vodka, costing just around $15 for flavored and unflavored options. For me, I stick with the strawberry and vanilla flavors. It makes taking a shot taste a lot less cheap tasting. 

5. Fireball - $15

I don't think I've ever seen anyone drink Fireball *not* from the bottle. It's one of those drinks that someone whips out randomly at a party and passes around the room. For around $15, Fireball should make an appearance at your next weekend party.

Fun Fact: this spicy alcohol is actually from Canada. No need for a mixie, it goes down pretty easily and stirs up a fire in your belly. Though, if you do want to make your drink last, Fireball mixed with cola, cream soda, apple cider, and more is divine. 

6. Jose Cuervo - $15

You either love tequila or shiver anytime you go near it. Whether you've had a good experience with it or not, if your bank account is struggling at $20 on a Friday night, I'd say you got to risk it to get the biscuit. Grab the lime and the salt, and prepare yourself for an interesting night.

7. Agavales - $15

Once again, you either love tequila or despise it. Either way, you can take this as a shot or make a fancy tequila cocktail for your evening. 

8. Dr. McGillicuddy's -  $15

These varieties of the cheapest liquors cost about $15 and come in an array of flavors. If you grab the "Intense Mentholmint" flavor, you can make some "dirty Girl Scout" shots. Beware of its powers, Dr. McGillicuddy's will get you real drunk, real quick. 

9. Pinnacle - $13

This is a vodka that isn't going to hurt you the morning after too much, but it's certainly not on the high-quality end. Ultimately, Pinnacle does its job and keeps some money in your pocket for that late-night drunchie. Sprite is always a good mixer, especially paired with the whipped flavor

10. Jim Beam Bourbon - $15

Feeling like some bourbon tonight? Jim Beam and its myriad flavors are perfect for any weekend night out. Drink it straight or mix it with cola. Words from those who have tried it themselves said this is a cheap college whiskey that is worth the money.

11. New Amsterdam Gin - $16

Not only does New Amsterdam sell decent cheap vodka, but the brand also sells quality gin for about $16 a bottle. You can easily pair it with tonic water or ginger ale–and of course, you def need a lime. 

12. Captain Morgan Spiced Rum - $16

Your wallet will thank you for buying this $16 rum. With every shot, the spiced shot makes a fire in your stomach. One of the more popular rums for college students, there are many different spiced flavors to choose from. Drink it with a Cherry Coke, or Dr. Pepper, or even on the rocks. 

13. Bacardi Rum - $15

Take it slow when drinking Bacardi 151 Rum. With 75.5% alcohol content, it will leave you for a wild night no matter what. For $15, this rum mixes well with Coke or fruit juice. Just be aware you might wake up the next morning feeling extremely hungover.

14. Svedka - $13

Svedka is another cheap vodka that doesn't taste as cheap as the price tag. Costing roughly $13, one of the highly raved flavors is Svedka Citron.

Regardless of which of these 14 cheapest liquors you decide to go with, just remember that your bank account will be thanking you later on.
