Default I buy Carlo Rossi Wine for the Bottle, do you?

LOL!

As I sit here trying to finish off the last 2 glasses of Carlo Rossi Burgundy (I typically use it for cooking, but I want this jug for some mead I'm going to make tomorrow), I can't stand drinking this crap.

What do you do with it? Do you drink it? Cook with it? Clean with it? Pour it down the drain?

UGH! Might have got away with a good Sangria. If you add enough junk to it could be drinkable.

i let other people buy and drink it. once it is all gone i kindly ask for the bottle while handing person a glass of home brew. i then use the bottle for yeast starters, experimental batches ect.

I buy it in the summer and put on ice on Fridays, then drink on sundays with sprite as a "cooler".

I kinda like it, for hobo wine.

Bought a couple 96 oz bottles of organic apple juice from Henry's for like 3 bucks each. Perfect for starters. Pretty sad when I start looking at the containers instead of the products when I'm shopping.

If you don't know anyone who is Basque you probably haven't heard of this, but they make a drink called a kalimotxo (pronounced cali-macho I think) thats 1/2 red wine and 1/2 cola. I know it sounds wierd but it auactually tastes pretty good and definately packs a punch

carlo rossi sangria almost killed me. that night it caused my roommates to see my girlfriend (now wife) totally naked...for about 2 hours...while they tried to keep me from dying of alcohol poisoning.

I just avoid drinking the rossi and buy the 1 gallon jugs from the LHBS.

Ooooh this reminds me I need to get some of this and make a sangria! Sounds like a nice experiment mixing Sprite/Rossi in a keg... or even making sangria in a keg, lightly carbed! That said I've bought the organic 1 gal apple juice for the bottles in the past!

Schlante,
Phillip
