    Not gonna lie. I may not go out and buy that, but I have made similar cocktails at home, and they were pretty tasty.

      Don’t bother getting the hard version of Arizona Iced Tea. Shit tastes like you’re drinking paint.

        Tang gets used quite often in my mixes 😆

        Had friends over, and one asked if I could make a mimosa (I can, provided I have the ingredients - which I did not because we had already agreed on margaritas). Was like 😬 and looked around the kitchen. Improvised a white trash mimosa with Tang, lemon lime sparkling water, and vodka. It was deemed acceptable lol.

              Breakfast stout is IMHO one of the first great stouts of the American craft beer revolution in the late 2000’s

              Breakfast Stout in the bottle is a damn good stout. But Breakfast Stout on tap is maybe one of the greatest stouts of all time. If I ever see it on a beer menu on tap, I always get it.

        For anyone curious: I drink this every so often. It’s very good, but it’s not what you might call “easy drinking.” It’s the kind that fights back a little.

        I don’t drink and that sounds amazing.

        Edit: in case anyone’s curious, I’m don’t tend to drink because I don’t really like the taste of alcohol, and cocktails are too tasty. I need something that tastes good, but not so good that I feel tempted to become an alcoholic. I’d bet that the French toast brew is tasty enough for me to enjoy the flavor, but not so tasty that I’d want to drink it every day. That said, I have had people tell me, “oh this beer is amazing you have to try it” and then it tastes like shit, so it who knows.

      To be fair, peanut butter porters are generally pretty good. There’s a local brewery near me that makes one, and they don’t even have a spot for it on the shelf because it’s sold out before they can stock it.

      I mean, if you eat a complete breakfast, wouldn’t anything you drank/ate during that be considered part of the complete breakfast? Healthy people hate that one trick.

    The terrible thing about these isn’t the fake orange juice combined with rot gut vodka, it’s that (at least in my area) they want twelve freaking dollars for this shit. That’s three bucks a can!

    You could literally buy an entire jug of not-orange juice as well as a 750 ml bottle of vodka for less.

    I’ve seen worse stuff. I’ve caused worse stuff.

    In my Chemistry uni times, I already prepared limoncello at home (vodka infused with lemon peels). Nothing weird, right. I even brought some to the uni parties, people loved that stuff.

    And in the Organics lab one of the practical tasks was to synthesise isoamyl acetate, also known as banana oil. It’s completely safe as food/drink flavouring, but it has a clearly artificial banana flavour.

    Then there’s that muppet connecting both things. He took inspiration of my limoncello, but he wanted to do things “like a chemist”. So he prepared a batch of isoamyl acetate, and used it to flavour vodka. He also used a buttload of sugar and yellow food dye. And he brought that to a uni party.

    He called it “bananacello”. Everyone else, including me, called it “banana de plástico” (plastic banana). We still drunk it to the end, because “a good chemist likes alcohol” was our motto back then.

      I was interested till I saw it was seltzer. Screwdrivers don’t need to be bubbly. Sounds like they mashed a mimosa (good) with a screwdriver ( good) and it’s going to come out like a vodka infused mimosa, which I wouldn’t care for.

      Yeah the metal interferes with the taste.

        Drink cans are lined with plastic so you shouldn’t get any metal taste if you pour it into a glass before drinking. If you drink straight from the can you may get a slight taste.

      Screwdrivers are typically made with orange juice. Sunny D is more like the equivalent of orange Koolaid.

        To be fair that comes in a bottle. It definitely tastes like a certain type of old fashioned, but there are so many ways to make an old fashioned that not everybody’s going to like it.

    I’ll never understand how they can manage to make these pre-mixed liquor drinks so weak, yet they taste so strong. 4.5% is less alcohol than many beers. Are they just putting a teaspoon of liquor in these things and using artifical flavor to make it taste like vodka?

    A good mixed drink should be about 30% liquor IMO. Your average liquor has an ABV of 40%, so unless my math is wrong, at a 30:70 ratio we should be in the 12% territory, not 4.5.

    Screwdrivers with sunny d are better than regular OJ, IMO. The extra sweetness cuts out the alcohol taste more. But as a 0 sugar seltzer? The carbonic acid just makes alcohol like this taste like shit without added sugar.

    I dont drink alcohol myself, but isnt there some kind of drink, like the kind they mix up at bars, not sure the term for those kinds, that is just orange juice mixed with vodka? I must imagine this is intended to be similar but premade.

      The difference between Sunny D and orange juice is like the difference between Tik Tok and real life. One may be vaguely similar to the other, but they aren’t are for sure not interchangeable.

        Sunny D plus vodka is still good. Some friends in college mixed up a water cooler full of Sunny D, vodka, and blue curacao for a st patty’s day thing. Was bright green, tasted great, and was quite strong.

          It used to be called Sunny Delight, and it was in a commercial someone Gen-Xified the script by having a kid exclaim “Sweet! Sunny D!” after rummaging through the other drinks.

          God only knows what this stuff is. Probably some Soviet Union time travel scam from Dimension X.

            As a (young) millennial, I feel like it was always called Sunny D, though the name was Sunny Delight. Is my memory wrong? I’m pretty sure it isn’t a Gen-x thing at least. It’s got to be millennials.
