Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita Review


    Today’s Discussion will be about Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita!

    Last April, Bud Light Lime Lime-A-Rita hit shelves, and in less than eight months, became the leading flavored malt beverage brand on the market, selling more than 500,000 barrels.

    Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita Nutritional Information

    The green color is putrid. Truly not pretty at all. There is an effervescence, and smells a tad Margarita-y when poured. When left to sit a while, the yeast come to the forefront. Going down, it is bubbly and takes more like a Margarita than an ale. There is no head at all, so don’t expect many ale qualities.

    The big negative is this goes down very, very easy. Not too tart, not too sweet, it is like drinking a pop – and at 165 calories in a 8oz can, and 8% of alcohol, that can be a bad thing.

    I love, love, love the Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita Review. Last year, we bought three cases worth, and for us that is a HUGE amount of a malt liquor product. I highly recommend giving it a try if you enjoy beer, ale or some other type of malt beverage. It is different and delicious!

    I wrote about this last year on Coupons, Deals and more, but wanted to re-run an updated post because in the next week or two I plan on reviewing the Straw-Ber-Rita I have no idea if it can measure up to the Bud Light Lime Lime-A-Rita, but I am willing to give it a try!

    As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.

Brotherhood Riesling Wine Review


This Brotherhood Riesling Wine Review was going to simply say: Holy cow buy a case! but the winery has an interesting story, and you may want to know why I enjoyed the wine so much, so here goes …

The Brotherhood Winery is the oldest in the United States. Located in Washingtonville, NY it was first planted by Jean Jacques in 1837, and wine was first fermented in 1837. The winery sold sacramental wine during Prohibition. The Brotherhood Winery is the closest winery in proximity to New York City, pioneering wine tourism, hosting parties and events at wineries.

Vintner’s Notes

Brotherhood’s best selling wine, this beautiful Riesling has delicate floral and lime aromas and full, ripe flavors, off dry and very fruity. Perfectly balanced, with a long clean finish that goes well with salads, crab, or scallops, any mild cheese.

My Notes:

The Brotherhood Riesling is indeed delicate. Hubby called it “too light for food”. Me? All I could think of when he said that was, “Who needs food when you have this wine!?”

Light yellow in color, extremely fragrant floral notes, this wine was light, very fruity and highly drinkable. It was analogous to drinking a floral perfume – er, only the wine wouldn’t kill you like the perfume could if consumed.

Retailing for under $10 a bottle, the Brotherhood Riesling is a wine I plan on purchasing a case of the next time we go to the liquor store.

As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.

Cupcake Chardonnay Review

Cupcake Chardonnay Review


I have been intrigued by Cupcake Chardonnay ever since I saw the label. So, when I saw it for under $10 a few weeks ago, I decided to finally give it a go.

Vintner’s Notes:

The Chardonnay was crafted to emphasize the Central Coast’s crisp and vibrant Chardonnay character. A malolactic fermentation was used and then left the wine sur lie to create a wine that is both rich, full, creamy, toasty, and soft.

My Notes:

First let me tell you that four of us tried the Cupcake Chardonnay. I was the only person to finish a glass. Ok, I finished the bottle. No one else cared for it. Hubby called it more of a New York State Chardonnay than a California, and it is indeed a California wine. It is not buttery, nor is it fruity. And the last thing it reminded me of was a cupcake.

Pale yellow in color, the nose is vanilla, and I got mild vanilla while drinking. There is no bitter aftertaste I usually associate with a non-buttery Chardonnay. They claim barrel aging but if it was indeed barrel aged, that barrel was made out of stainless steel. I had zero oak tendencies from this bottle.

I have mentioned before that many Chardonnay’s blow up my left leg from the sulfates. The Cupcake Chardonnay did not have any adverse effect on me, which is always a good thing!

For myself I would buy this again for the “right” price. I would never buy to share though because of the dislike of 75% of the company that tried, and did not care for, the Cupcake Chardonnay.

Have you tried the Cupcake Chardonnay? What did you think?

As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.
