I want to try a drink and then write up how it tastes immediately, which means as the day wears I may ramble a bit more in what I write, but that's the fun! I have my drinks, I have films to watch to drink to (Friday 13th series) and I have tasty tasty turkey dinosaurs!
First up is Desperados red.
A few sips in and I’m already burping quite a bit, even though it’s not overly fizzy. After giving some to the bf and asking him what he thought his reply was ‘it tastes weird, like someone’s mixed beer and a crappy red bull with it’ I see his point...
Overall, it’s not too bad and might have again, but I think I prefer the original more over this one!
The next drink is Carling British cider. While I dislike the ads I still wanted to give this a go.
The cider is nice enough. Sweet and crisp and a bit tart, and like the last drink it’s pretty light. Also...fizzy peee (what I thought of as I poured it, not what it does to you I wish to add...) or to quote Black Books, it’s like looking into the eye of a duck!
Well I’ll drink up this one, for I have another cider in store, yay!
Time for that other cider...yay!
Luckily it doesn’t taste on bananas, phew! Tastes just like a toffee apple, and I would rather drink one than try and eat one and get all that gunk stuck in my teeth (yes I’m boring)
Ok then again the more I drink the more bananary it’s tasting, so err..no I won’t have it again. On the plus side, the bf gets to have some more which he is pleased about. Maybe the last drink will end on a high note but considering how it looks I’m not sure.
Last drink is something a bit more unusual the bf bought at a Japanese shop in Brighton we often go to for the yummy onigiri.
This one I would have again but it’s way too sweet to have much off, like a smoothy made of mince pies.
And that concludes my boozy booze reviews. Was fun to try all these drink and write about them. I don’t know if what I wrote would encourage anyone to try some (if you are old enough to that is) but hopefully you may give at least one of these a go, or even encourage you to try something new if you see something interesting in a shop.
Next time I do one of these it will be about soft drink as I have quite a few in my fridge to drink and a couple I’ve seen I want to buy which includes a hot wing soda, which will be amazing I’m sure. Not sure if that’s amazing good or amazing bad but you shall know when I buy it, woo!
