Has a bad reputation but is actually ok!

Advantages: Alcoholic cherryade!
Disadvantages: Not the most upmarket drink!
I used to drink Lambrini as a teenager because it was cheap and the bubbles seems to get me drunk quicker. As I got older I stopped drinking it as it had a reputation as being cheap and nasty. I sent my other half to Tesco to get me some Asti, however he came back with Lambrini cherry, not even remotely similar and a lot cheaper, he must have been feeling tight! He proudly informed me that two bottles cost £5.
A standard bottle contains a 75cl of the wine. It comes in a standard shape wine bottle with a screw top. I like wine with a screw top as it means I can lie it down in my fridge rather than trying to fit it in the door with the milk and juice etc.. The wine is a deep red colour. When you open the bottle you can immediately smell the cherry and hear the fizz escaping. I use a large wine glass and I managed to get 2 1/2 glasses out of a bottle.
This is great for those watching their alcohol consumption as a whole bottle contains just over 4 units of alcohol. When I read the back I was also suprised to find that it contains 2% cherry juice.
Lambrini is best served chilled.
When I first tasted this I was plesantly suprised, it tastes like an alcoholic cherryade. It has just the right amount of fizz and it tastes really light. I wouldn't recommend no more than about 2 glasses as you could feel quite bloated and sick. I can definately see why this would appeal to younger drinkers as it has a nice sweet taste.
I would recommend giving this a try, it's cheap and tastes nice what more could you ask for!
Summary: Cheap plonk!
