    No, I would just mix my own. Wine, brandy and fruit juice over ice. Boom :dance:

    I got some as a gift. It's pretty good, easy drinking, but you could make your own easily and it would probably be better/ stronger.

    Why do we need a sweetened, flavored wine? Isn't wine already a flavor? Next thing you know that asshole is going to come out with a line of passionfruit iced teas.

    I had a glass at one of his live shows. Didn't finish it. It was really strong, which of itself wasn't the reason I didn't finish it, however I just didn't think it tasted good. I don't really like red wine so that may be part of it, but I didn't like it very much.

    :lol: Is his stand-up any good? I like him as a radio/podcast host, but his stand-up seems pretty weak.

    Saw him twice within about 2 year span at the same theater and his second show was almost identical to the first. He has a show in Oct, I'm not bothering with.

    His "stand-up" is more like a power-point presentation or a one-man show about his life. About 10-15 minutes of riffing, complaining about current events, crowd work and then he shows a bunch of photos from his younger days, scans of his shitty report cards, old pay-checks from his poor days, self deprecating humor and his rise to working with Kimmel and what not.

    It was entertaining, but if you see it once, no need to see it again. If you are a fan of his pod/radio, you'll have a good time.
