So many possibilities came to mind, but in the end I decided to go with the first Rip I thought of, which was Ripple Wine. I know, I know, you’re all surprised, right?
It was 1972 when I was first able to legally purchase and consume alcohol. In the aftermath of a night at the Drive-in drinking Seven & Sevens, I quickly discovered that I did not care for hard liquor – at all. It certainly was not my finest hour, but the lesson was very well learned. And that’s all I’m going to say about that!
Some of the drinks I tried and dismissed were Sloe Gin Fiz (doesn’t that just sound cute!) and Harvey Wallbangers (too sweet & too much acid). Someone eventually introduced me to Boones Farm and Ripple. They were both too sweet for me but I did like them enough to realize that red wine would be my drink of choice.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my little tRip down Memory Lane! I wish you all a wonderful Manic Monday!
