When drunk properly, the Mind Eraser creates a head rush similar to the one you get when you've eaten ice cream too fast and that may have influenced this drink's name. It is a popular party shooter that poses the challenge of finishing it off in one drink, and it's not that easy.

The drink is a sort of lowball shooter. It's built over ice and served with a straw. If you're game, the trick is to drink all of it through the straw in one shot. When you do this the carbonation gives you a quick head rush before the alcohol sets in to do it's job. The Mind Eraser

Mind Eraser-REVISED, Member karefree1

I make these mind blowing drinks this way: 1 oz. Kahlua 1 oz. Vodka 1 oz. Club Soda Layer equal amounts of ingredients starting with Kahlua, then layer Vodka on top of that, then slowly layer the Club Soda over the Vodka. You will see 3 definite layers in the glass. Drink with a straw at the bottom of the glass, like a shot (all at once) until gone. You will taste the Kahlua, then the Vodka, and after the Club Soda, there should be no after taste whatsoever! It's a fun party drink with friends. We would race to the finish...last one done...buys the shots!!
