A Spirit with a Twist
Member Name: DavyMichelle
Advantages: Unique Taste, Very Cheap
Disadvantages: Strange Mix Really
Taboo has always been in a staple in our house around Christmas time, but this year it was bought out for a family barbecue too. It costs just under £7 for a 70cl bottle which I think is pretty good value these days. You can get it from supermarkets, including Tesco which is where we bought ours from.
If you've never had, or even heard of, Taboo before, then it's basically a mixture of fruit juices, wine and vodka. It's like a peach and tropical twist vodka drink really, although you can taste the wine as it has a little dry, crisp edge to it.
I'm not the hugest fan of this, as I'm not so keen on the wine kick to things, but I have to admit to really likely it when mixed with lemonade or cream soda and served in a tall glass with ice. I find it really quite refreshing when served in that manner.
I would recommend it best for those who are looking for a spirit similar to Peach Schnapps or Malibu, that has more of a kick to it but with less alcohol content rather than more. It's a step up from fruit wine, but a step down from hard spirits like Vodka (which of course this contains).
I personally wouldn't drink this all the time, as I prefer my drinks to be either sweet or kicking - and this is a cross between the two. I bet that there are some people who this mixed taste would really appeal to. Well there must be, else this drink wouldn't have been around for so many decades! I'd recommend Taboo to someone looking for a unique taste that fits somewhere between being a spirit, a wine and a cocktail.
