    I am not a big fan of wines, but this is the only wine I can drink.

    Well technically it is rather a wine based drink, but taste almost similar. It is very sweet, citrusy weak 5-12% at most. It almost taste like grape/citrus juice drink. My local shops selling 12% so one bottle its usually enough to knock me out to bed.

    If you not a big fan of wines, but would give wine a chance, then Sangria is your way to go. Try Spanish section of wines in your local Walmart or other similar shops and I tell you guys, you wont be disappointed.

    And of course as we all know those who drink one or two glasses of wine a day have a reduced risk of developing blocked arteries in the legs.Wine improves circulation, dilates blood vessels and raises good cholesterol.

    I think you mean goddesses. In your mind is the runner up Smirnoff Ice by any chance? It's a great way to use up crappy wine, fruit that likely won't get eaten straight, and get in touch with your feminine side.

    Whiskey isn't a drink, it's a lifestyle.

    Goes down too easy. Sitting at a restaurant patio on La Rambla in Barcelona back in the day, hot as hell, had these lined up and knocking them down watching the world go by - when it was time to get up and leave - my legs wouldn't work.

    Sangría is for sissies.

    Accept Kalimotxo ( equal parts cola and red wine with some variations) as your Lord and Savior, and play the Okalimotxo or Duro to get things started at a party.

    Home made sangria is pretty nice on a hot summer night.

    Both were shit, but Zima tasted like a wine cooler, except it was a malt liquor
