Advantages: Super cheap
Disadvantages: A little sickly
Lambrini - 75cl is £1.39 currently at Tesco (shop around it's often on special offer)
7.5 % ABV
Lambrini is sold as a light sparkling perry which is traditionally made form pears. The drink itself often gets a bit of bad press as people seem to think it's a really cheap wine, and then knock the flavour. I personally feel the taste is a little on the sweet side, and it often something that the 'younger' drinkers out there may be drawn to.
Having said the taste is on the sweet side I have to admit that I do in fact enjoy the odd glass (guiltily...) It was something that we often drank when at university years ago (Lambrini hour was always a killer), and nostalgia kicking in, again being a student I did pick up two bottles the other day. It's still as sweet as it was, and the cherry version was absolutely wonderful. The standard 'white' as it were can leave a bit of an after-taste - however the cherry version is totally delightful.
It isn't necessarily something I'll be drinking on Christmas day but for the bargain prices you can pick it up for it's well worth a revisit. With the low ABV it's unlikely to leave your head feeling too fuzzy.
As always make sure you drink responsibly, as this may sneak up on you with it's pop like taste...
Highly recommended for a trip down memory lane but it is a bit sickly...
