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
