I bought this drink entirely on the grounds of it’s fun, camp advert (one minute he’s V from V from Vendetta, the next he’s… fabulous). I decided my Sunday wasn’t nearly sparkly enough and opened a bottle of the non-alcoholic “Cherry, Grape and Winter Spice” drink.
First reactions: OH MY GOD IT’S GLITTERY LOOK AT IT. You shake up the bottle and the red drink starts swirling thickly with glitter.
But the actual taste is boring. It’s like watered down cranberry juice with no trace of the ‘winter spice’ it claims to contain, and the grape is unnoticeable.
I have to wonder what it would be like mixed with Vimto – I may need to experiment.
For more pictures and a cocktail suggestion, the excellently named Institute for Alcoholic Experimentation has more.
