Are you a lambrini girl?...........i'm not!

Advantages: Screw lid!?
Disadvantages: Everything else!
I am not a complete lightweight when it comes to alcohol, but i do tend to stick to what i know (except for the odd occasions when there are shots around!), with this mainly being berr and my liquor of choice, Tia-Maria.
I do take the occasional glass (bottle!) of wine, but always stick to the very weak versions, ie Lambrusco, sweet and pop like!
When shopping recently i decided to get me a bottle (crappy week at work and all that!) but found that there wasn't of my usual available, so started looking for an alternative, which is how i decided to try Lambrini, which to me sounded almost the same so should taste the same, right!?
As with my normal brand i went for the rose version, though in the Lambrini this is actually cherry flavoured rather than fruity in my normal brand, with it having a lovely eye catching pink colour to it, i was actually looking forward to a glass or two.
The top is a generic looking screw lid, which is off coiurse easier to keep if you ever have any left over for another day........i am told that the wine is just as good the next day doing this method, but of coiurse couldn't possibly comment! (lol).
When the wine is poured (and i say wine in the loosest possible terms!), there is a distinctive fruity smell to it, being underlain with a really strong cider smell, which is one drink i cannot stand (an incident in my youth involving Strongbow.....i still heave when i smell the stuff!), but decided that it might be a little decieving, so took a sip anyway.
The wine/cider actually made me gag, it not only smelled like cider but tasted like it too, making this an undrinkable thing for me.
Price wise this is available for around the £2-£3.00 mark, and can be purchased in vat size if the bottles available in Asda are anything to go by, but the alcohol percentage is quite low, so you would need to drink the vat size to get any sort of effects off of it.
Would i reccomend? Not in the slightest, i even think seasoned cider drinkers would find this stuff quite unpalatable, maybe if used as a base for some sort of punch? But sadly not for me.
Thanks for reading x
