Default Goldschlager....does it really cut your throat?

I searched and found an old thread that asked the question but I could not find a definitive answer. I was at a party last night and almost everyone I asked said that the gold "cuts your throat to help with alcohol absorption." I find this very hard to believe as I think it is merely a decoration. Is there any definitive answer on this? Thanks.

Having done a lot of shots of Goldschlager in a row... no, it doesnt cut your throat. Decoration only (and something to get attention, and thus sales).

Yes, that's what he's talking about and no it does not. If everyone at the party is saying that, maybe they are too dumb to drink.

Ummm, yeah. I sure hope you are joking.

Do you really think the FDA would allow it to be sold if that were the case?

the gold flakes are way too thin to slice your throat on the way down.

I've heard the same thing - supposedly it lacerates your stomach lining to get the booze in you faster

Note: It is absolutely disgusting seeing those gold flakes come back up after someone drank Goldschlager. There's just something so wrong about there being gold flakes in vomit.
