I'd say that I'm a pretty casual drinker, as I often prefer a glass of ice water over a martini. But after a busy day, I must admit that a crisp glass of wine starts to sound good once 6pm rolls around.
I was recently introduced to Merlocola which is a new red wine available at the LCBO just in time for the heat of summer.
This particular bottle is a French Merlot wine with flavours of Cola. Merlocola contains 70% of a light, fruity French Merlot, with the remaining 30% being a combination of flavouring from the cola plant, along with some natural sugar. This wine contains 7.9% alcohol.
Merlot+Cola names around the world:
Eastern Europe: Bambus
South Africa: Catemba
The best part? It's on sale for $8.80 right now at your local LCBO. Try it out for yourself, I'm sure it'll be a real crowd pleaser.
Party on, and sip responsibly ;)
