What's wrong with wine coolers? lol remember Zima? tasted like feet.

Alize drink mix is the same stuff. Also, the vodka coolers are still popular with Asians.

Don't drink any cooler/fancylad drinks in front of Irish people, they get pissed. lol Was at a bar near Yankee stadium and I'm not a beer drinker.

People make such a big deal on what I drink... But, I don't give a fvck. I can't tell good drinks from bad anyway.


well no there's nothing wrong with it in principle. I mean even hipsters drink sangria, which in the US is usually red wine and sprite.

somehow I guess if you say Chinese cut their wine with 7up it sounds uncouth but if you say the Spanish drink sangria it's a freaking wonderful evening in Sunny Spain. I'd heard about that on the part of Chinese but I assumed it was a just an old stereotype. the story about putting ice cubes in your wine from Yao is a new one to me though lol. if it's in red wine that's a double lol haha.

personally wine coolers taste like watered down and flavored Colt 45. I guess it's just a matter of what kind of taste you acquired. I usually drink something hard like bourbon but I could understand if someone just thought it wasted like drinking barky cereal.

You guys must be wondering how is Yao Family Wines doing these day in China.

Through Pernod Ricard (China), its sole and exclusive importer and distributor and liaison of China Wine Magazine, there were these wine trials/tests organized on March 31 throughout 16 cities of China including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Changsha, Nanning, Hangzhou, Shenyang, Chengdu where without knowing/seeing the brands of the wine, wine enthusiasts and experts were invited to try, taste and rank different kind of Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, Spain, Chile, Australia and other countries in term of their taste and texture.

Yao's Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 was doing great in all these trials, and came out Top 3 in most of the cities.
:shock: :P :lol: :D 8)

wow, you moron. You have no answer for that question?
From what I heard, some people would mix wine with coca cola, since they do not like the taste or does not have the knowledge to appreciate the taste anyway. These people drink expensive wine just to show off.
