Can I not?

31 May


…interrupt the Beaujolais crus series for a canned treat?

…drink out of a bottle…or a can?

…drink pink but wear black lipstick?

…watch Clue on repeat?

…make up my own lyrics?

…ENJOY a pink canned wine spritzer thingamabob?

…especially as I got a four-pack in the mail from the generous Gallo folks?

I CAN. I do what I want and what I wanted was a cool bev bordering on uncouth and dessert all in one fell swoop.

Short version:

This tastes of peppy berries and sugar and SweetTarts and fucking teenage happiness. It is a sugar sweet (not even BITTERsweet) Joy of Life Just Because Swill.

I don’t review every drink that arrived at my door. I review this because it is fucking fun and some of you including me may like it. 

BEHOLD: Barefoot Refresh Rosé Spritzer

The website will show a picture of a bottle but this stuff is canned. Could I drink a load of it? Nah. Could I drink this the same way I used to drink Mike’s Hard Lemonade at barbecues? Heck yah.

Could I drink it when needing to be ironically goth thus sporting chains and too much black eyeliner on both eyes and lips but wearing and drinking pink? Fuck yah.

Could I give it to my friend who drinks sweet stuff who likely likes Barefoot’s other pink bevs? Bloody hell yes.

So this can tells you what you are gonna taste because presumably if you bought it you are not going to be slowly sniffing and swirling but gulping but HOPEFULLY appreciating. The can states: “Aromas of raspberry and pomegranate. Enjoy at the beach a backyard BBQ or any barefoot occasion”.

No progress sipping at any of those places but at home I’m always gonna be barefoot and lemme tell you that works too.

Pink Lime and Meh

21 Oct

  
You will be lured.

It will be on sale.

This little can of Pampelonne.

Cute packaging and ease.

At your booze store.
Or at Whole Foods.
You will succumb.
Let me express this in haiku:

It is Rosé Lime.
Juice yet some funk and lime notes.
Good but not enough.

It is kinda tasty? If you need wine in a can, go ahead buy this. It is so FUCKING cute. 
Friggin’ pink Breton stripes.

Also if you need wine in a can your problems are worse than meh beverages.

It is like a pink frock you feel vulnerable in but once you in it you are like “fuck I’m wearing pink!” and you feel okay, if not temporarily fulfilled. Cause sometimes you just need things to be easy and tasty enough. That is this.

More on pink frocks soon. That could be important.
