Cheap and not very cheerful!

I enjoy a nice glass of wine, like many people, when I settle down in front of the TV after a hard day at work. I prefer mine nice and cold and it is nearly always refrigerated. On occasions I will also drink wine with my evening meal.
One wine I have tried is Lambrini. This is very much on the cheaper range of the wine scale. In fact it is really a brand of light perry. It is manufactured near Liverpool and close to where I live. As such many of the local shops carry a large range and quite often a bit cheaper.
'Lambrini is an organic product that is available in eight varieties: Original, Light, Cherry, Peach, Cream, Bubbly, Pink Bubbly, Bucks Fizz and Still. The latter differs from the other varieties in that it comes in a three-litre box rather than a bottle'.
The bottles come in different sizes. For example there is a 275ml bottle, 75cl bottle and a massive 1.5l bottle. The latter retails at only a couple of pounds for a bottle and each has a low alcohol content of 7.5%.
The person who invented Lambrini also lived local but sadly died last year, At his inquest it was advised that he had been drinking a bottle a day.
I have tried a few of the flavours and the original. It has a crisp taste and a sparkly effect but it never really appealed to me. I drink wine that gives a nice after taste and try to enjoy the taste. This to me was no more than glorified lemonade. Sadly for this reason it is popular with kids too who don't realise how drunk they are getting. You certainly can drink lots of it without realising just what affect it has on your body. Just ask your local police force.
So if you want a cheap drink then this is for you. Personally I'd rather have a proper glass of wine or a bottle of pop.
