I can't see any other reason for drinking this foul brew.
I had a girlie night in with my sister and one of her friends recently, we decided to have a few drinks and each brought along a bottle of wine. The friend brought along a bottle of Lambrini and I have got to say I was not impressed.
Lambrini costs just £1.69 in my local Co-Op for a 75cl bottle and is by far the cheapest bottle on the wine shelves making even Lambrusco seem expensive. A bottle contains 6 units of alcohol, each standard sized glass of wine contains 1.3 units and the bottle contains 7.5% alcohol. It is interesting to note that Lambrini will be a victim when the Scottish Government bring in their minimum alcohol pricing of 45p a unit meaning that Lambrini will be £2.70 a bottle.
Although Lambrini comes in a wine bottle, is advertised as a wine and sits on the shelf beside the other wines it is in fact a perry. A perry is a drink that is made of pears rather than grapes and it is more like a cider than a wine. I imagine it is marketed this way as it is more appealing to women as it seems classier than glugging down pints of cider.
Lambrini tastes pretty foul, it is sweeter than wine but not sickly sweet and still manages to have a bitter taste in my mouth. It doesn't really taste of pears or any other fruit for that matter. It is fairly dry and has a slight fizz to it. The taste is what I would imagine would happen if you mix together paint stripper and cat pee and it is really unpleasant.
Taste doesn't matter much to a Lambrini girl, it is not the cheapest booze out there -it is possible to buy huge 3 litre bottles of super strength cider for a couple of quid - but it is at the lower end of the price market. A lambrini girl is someone who just wanted to get hammered as cheaply as possible or an underage drinker with a bit of pocket money to spend, it is sold at a price that everyone can afford.
I hated Lambrini and thought it was one of the most disgusting drinks I had ever tasted. I did go through a phase of drinking a lot when I was in my late teens but our drink was never as cheap as Lambrini and I think the fact this perry is so cheap contributes to binge drinking. If you just want to get drunk and don't care about how you do it then Lambrini is ideal; if you want to relax and enjoy a pleasant drink then look elsewhere.
Summary: Lambrini girls just wanna get drunk!
