ARE you a semi-alcoholic who enjoys classy cocktail drinking but hasn’t bothered getting all the stuff in? Try these foul concoctions:
On the face of it, gin topped up with prosecco seems like a sophisticated affair but ultimately you’re using reasonably strong alcohol as a mixer for very strong alcohol. You have a problem.
A favourite with Spanish teenagers, this combination of red wine and cola essentially involves mixing two horrible drinks together to create one drink so very horrible that it ends up being oddly palatable. Plus it’s got a cosmopolitan name.
This is made by creeping around a party tipping the dregs of abandoned drinks into a pint glass of brown, murky liquid that gives you a hangover just looking at it. It’s disgusting but the name is cool, so people will think it’s a fashionable beverage rather than the reason tramps hang around beer gardens.
Take sangria and ouzo, exotic drinks evocative of European city breaks, and mix. The perfect cocktail for getting so sh*tfaced on day one of your holiday that you spend the rest of it in bed recovering from alcohol poisoning and sunburn.
This, in theory, is a legitimate cocktail even though it looks and tastes like urine from the Devil’s dick and turns people into lunatics. However, it can only have been invented by accidentally dropping one into the other and drinking it anyway, so it’s on the list.
