Earlier this week was of course St. Patrick’s Day, and I spent most of the day sampling stouts, taking the odd nip of whiskey, and listening to a lot of very fine Irish music. I had some Guinness, some home-brewed coffee stout, and some Dark Matter, along with a dab of Jameson’s, and a large dosage of Pogues, Waterboys, Van Morrison, Undertones, and various other Irishey songs. While all this was going on in Victoria, my sister was back home in Vernon, sipping on a bottle of Mike’s Hard black cherry lemonade, apparently because it was left over from a party and she was curious. She then sent me some photos of the bottle and her own tasting notes, which prompted me to write a blog post. God knows it saved me the effort of having to write my own tasting notes on St. Patrick’s Day!
Mike’s Hard black cherry lemonade, as per Ivy.
Appearance: Cough syrup
Taste: Not sure if I was drinking liquefied Willy Wonka’s nerds, soap, or fruity shampoo.
Overall: Easy way to become intoxicated without noticing the consumption of alcohol.
Rating: 1/5 Bad
Riley’s interpretation: Perhaps akin to drinking flavoured Dawn dish soap to get drunk?
