Taboo - A great drink, good mix of fruit flavours and a large one for me please

Advantages: Great drink, good mix of flavours
This brings back some memories, as I remember feeling so grown up on my 18th Birthday party ordering Taboo and lemonade, (this was the 1980s), It has gone through a few changes over the years, but is still a great drink.
Taboo is a Vodka based drink but also contains white wine and fruit juices, there are two taboos, the one that is pictured and a blue colour taboo, the difference being the fruits that are used.
This is a round based glass bottle clear, with the Taboo label on the front, the alcohol content is about 14%, it's more a alcopop based drink.
A 70cl bottle is priced at around £6 to £8, again depending on where you buy it from, but I do find it really good value.
Neat - I wouldn't really drink this neat, I find the peach based one too sweet, and the blue coloured one just reminds me of mouthwash, but both are too sweet to drink neat, as you just end up sipping them
I prefer mind mixed with lemonade, I tend to find that I have 1/3rd taboo 2/3rd lemonade and some ice and this suits me down to the ground, and others that have tried the drink at home have all said they prefer it with lemonade.
I do find that even with the lemonade it still has a sweet taste, although diluted by the lemonade, it's more a girlie drink.
=Would I recommend=
I would recommend this drink, it's a light refreshing drink and is great for a summers night, a bbq, o a good girls get together. It's not a drink I would order in a pub, as 2 drinks I could buy a bottle, so it is a home drink.
Summary: A great value drink, tops well with lemonade, not to strong on the alcohol front
