I haven’t been trendy in years. Funky fashion has given way to sourcing out the funky smell in the mini-van. However, while perusing the LCBO Trend Report, I discovered that unlike my current lifestyle, my beverage choices are actually pretty hip. Is hip even a trendy hip saying anymore?
Wheat beer and Pinot Grigio are expected to be popular choices for spring and summer. Um, hello? Giant mugs of Hoegaarden and I go waaaay back. FYI, it’s pronounced “who-garden” not "ho-garden" because duh, we all know a ho-garden is where they grow prostitutes.
I’m also a Pinot Grigio fanatic. Just look in my fridge.
Why yes, that IS a box of wine. Kathy Griffin’s mom and I have a lot in common. We both like to "Tip it!" As a former boxed wine snob, I must say some boxed wines offer both great value and they're tasty.
The LCBO also sees “modern classic cocktails, drinks made with super-premium vodkas, 100% agave tequila and single malt Scotches topping the list at bars. As well, sparkling wine will be a popular choice for Saturday night dinners and movie-night Tuesdays, not only special occasions.”
