Any suggestions for red box wine?

I saw some called McGuigan Estate, 225cl for £14.75 at Sainsburys. Looked decent, probably will go with that tbh. 

Always find the difficult bit with Box wine, is that I'd have to buy a box just to taste/test it 😅

Aldi has some and people always rave about their wines. As its all their own stuff you might potentially be able to just buy a bottle of it first then come back for the bag potentially 🙂

This is very difficult, I like a big red. I wonder if the 9 crimes hype is worth it. At least could try a bottle first. My go to once was crabbies mulled (red) ginger wine which was phased out. It somehow worked in my camelback especially on a wet night

FAO those who like Espresso Martinis: 

I found these at Sainsburys today. I didn’t buy any but I will next time I’m in and do a taste test. They were about £3.20 so pricy!

Potential game changer! I'm off to Sains tonight so I'll give them a try and report back 😄

Not tried these yet but thought I'd take the plunge for £17.

Funkin is my go to for purees for cocktails at work, so should be decent enough. Never seen the cans before though, where did you find them?

The Moth cans are available in packs of 12 from their website, but there doesn't look to be that much of a cost saving: https://mothdrinks.com/packBuilder/?type=fixed

I just had one of the moth espresso martinis while out walking the dog. Popped it in my pocket warm and walked around a bit to shake it up. I took a cup with me with some ice in it and then poured the can over it, accurately simulating the most popular method of consumption at Glastonbury. 
 

i’m not particularly a big fan of espresso martinis as I don’t really drink spirits but it tasted very similar to espresso martinis I’ve had from cocktail bars in the past. it definitely tasted a lot more authentically like a cocktail than the Kahlúa or funkin branded ones. If espresso martinis are you thing I would definitely recommend. 
 

as mentioned before they are fucking strong so given I also took two cans of Moretti on the walk through the woods I’m feeling slightly tipsy right now. Merry Tuesday.

I’ve not tried that wine and peoples taste in red wine differs greatly, but I quite like the Primitivo that Lidl sell in cans. Whilst it won’t be winning any awards I think it’s very drinkable and so I’ve picked up some cans for Glastonbury. As it’s in can form it’s easy enough to just get one to sample before bulk buying.

Merry Tuesday! Thank you for your important field research and reporting back!

I like that they're almost 15%, that feels like an efficient use of space and weight. Much better than carrying around a load of cans of lager.

for cocktail lovers, this company are amazing , I've ordered gifts from people from there, and the cocktails are lovely. I think they now stock in some supermarkets BUT majority are glass bottles .... BUT they've just bought out two varieties in cans and another 2 to follow in July .

If yu want a pre mixed expresso martini for home then I can thoroughly recommend - you can mix and match your own multi packs

Cans of Hard Seltzer (Mike's Raspberry in particular) may well be the new addition for me this year. They are in essence alcoholic sparkling water. I imagine they are a hate it or love it type of drink, but if you are a fan of the agua con gas then these are great. 5%, 24 for £34 on Amazon, and only 2g of sugar (for those concerned)!

I've got 24 (now 22 😂) cans of hard seltzers too. Nice and refreshing on a sunny day 🤞

Also got 10 ciders (so far) and going to be making some kind of flavoured vodka. Unsure what flavours yet though
