To drink or not to drink, is not
really the question. But what to drink certainly is!
Would you be surprised if
I said that my foray into the world of vodkas, wines and tequilas began with
the humble Breezer? Not shocking is
it? Yes, a few years back it was with Breezer, Cranberry flavor to be precise,
that I got introduced into the world of grown-ups
who took an occasional drink or two for pleasure. Of course, since then dare
I say that things have moved along at a greater pace? And today fortunately or
unfortunately I am the Infamous Wine
Drinking Woman Indiblogger from Bangalore who stood in front of a packed
house during an Indimeet helping Rajiv Makhni test an app for detecting alcohol
level in blood. Well I certainly hope
I don’t come across as an alcoholic, but to be honest I do love my drink within
limits ofcourse! Don’t judge me, I am after all a girl and in the words of Cyndi Lauper Girls just want to have fun,
Though it was the Cranberry Flavor with
which I began my breezy journey with
, I must say it is the Blackberry
Crush flavor I have a crush
Such is my love for Blackberry
that every time I see someone with a Blackberry phone
in their hands I have this intense itch to tell
them that ‘that’s the wrong Blackberry
you’ve got there my friend!’
Laughable, perhaps, but surely plausible!
In the interest of full disclosure,
I must say that I do consider myself a seasoned campaigner when it comes to a
drink or two on weekends; well alright not just two maybe a couple more! But
who’s counting? When I graduated in the drinking department, I wanted something
more than the elementary flavors I had begun with. Well the heart wants what
the heart wants; in this case it wanted something different. That’s when I put
my hands on the Breezer that became a regular in my fridge - Blackberry
Every Friday like
clockwork when my husband picked up beer, I picked up the Blackberry that I was
infatuated with and could drink too!
Well it should not be a shocker since
I work in the IT industry. And trust me dealing with annoying managers in this
industry is a hell of a lot easier after a drink or two.
What I like about Blackberry
is that it has an intense flavor, much more than any other
Breezer that I have had till date! The color, the tang, I relish it all when it
comes to Blackberry Crush.
It’s not too sweet and thankfully I don’t
feel like I’m having juice and not an alcoholic beverage when it’s in my hand!
I love the vaguely heady feeling it
brings, a stress buster for me for sure. A slightly tipsy me along with Blackberry
in my hand,
seated in the
easy chair in my balcony in a star-lit breezy
night fragrant with the aroma
of barbeque by the side is a time I particularly look forward to.
I personally don’t like anything
too sweet; anything too sugary makes me cynical especially when it comes to a
drink for it hardly does what it is supposed to! Well you get what I mean
right? Why would I choose an alcoholic beverage if I wanted something sweet,
that’s a job for cakes in my world! Truth be told, I need some spunk in my
drink. A wishy-washy drink never does the trick for me, if anything at all it just
makes me miserable. And since I already have enough ‘bland’ people in my office
for that, why would I want it in my drink as well! I need something exciting,
something sharp. Blackberry Crush has that
berry that makes it very enticing!
So the Breezer that does the trick
for me is Blackberry Crush without a doubt!
