cultura chupística

A post on cultura chupística (drinking culture) in Chile is absolutely necessarily as this facet of culture is quite developed in Chile.

Estar entonado - To have a buzz
Andar arriba de la pelota - to be drunk
Estar dado vuelta - to be really drunk, to be fucked up

la mamadera - this literally means a baby's bottle, but it is also used to designate a bottle of say coca-cola, with the rum added directly to it for partying generally in route to your destination, like say, in the micro, or walking. It's also popular for partying in the beach or public plazas, etc. It is like a baby's bottle because the liquid that it contains may put one to sleep with the bottle in hand.

Chilensis, I believe
