A Tale Of Cocktails #29



2 oz cherry wine
1 oz vodka
6 oz lemonade
Dash lemon juice

Taste: 6
Look: 5
Cost: 9
Name: 7
Prep: 9
Alcohol: 2
Overall: 6.4

Preparation: Pour ingredients into a cordial glass.  Stir and serve.

General Comments: As the name implies (we had to make our own up, since this is a variant of the terminally boring "cherry wine cocktail", which cuts out the lemonade and is lethal), the combination of cherry wine and vodka somehow ends up tasting like Ribena and lemonade, only with something of a dryness to it.  Noting this curious result is somewhat more interesting than the drink itself, it has to be said. And you can't really even get drunk enough off of it to giggle at the silly name.

Damn cheap, though.
