What's not to like. OK the taste may be a bit tooth rotting for some, but... er did I mention it was cheap.

Lambrini is truly disgusting, far too sweet and nasty. I imagine it probably makes wonderful toilet cleaner/paint stripper.

Used to drink it at uni all the time. Not had any for ages and can't for a while as pregnant

I think Wine Gums have more alcohol content in them than Lambrini grin

Not an alcoholic as far as I know, but thanks for the warning. Made in Liverpool from melted down pear drops I believe....

But the OP said she likes it Holly, and not just because its cheap!

As did everyone else who has said they drink it, apart from me but I was a skint student so the cheapness was possibly a big factor in why I drank it! Haha!

But holly, the OP is drinking it because she likes it. The cheapness is just a happy coincidence.

I've never had lambrini in my life. Not sure how that happened.

I've never had it.

I would only judge if you were drinking White Lightening out of the 2l bottle at 9am tbh.

>slap me down< I drink something I like, if I were reduced to surfing the daily deals and cheap shit, I'd know I had a problem

I love it, bit I can drink it by the gallon!

YABU it's low in alcohol - spend £3.99 on a nice merlot from Lidl (drinking it now) 12% - gets you nicely warm and fuzzy for a lot less

I think it is, its 'perry' anyway. I can't remember what it tastes like though!

It doesn't make you cheerful at all, it not only tastes like piss but is piss weak.

It is truly vile, I once ordered a white wine in a nightclub abd they handed me that vile stuff. I threatened them with the trade descriptions act - it is not wine, it's perry and a rather nasty version at that.

(sorry, I apparently feel far too strongly about lambrini - note to self,meet a grip --and a life--)

Beware! Tis the devils brew! hmm

Remember that awful Thunderbirds stuff? Ewwwww

Where did she say she needs it? hmm

tigerdriverII Fri 10-May-13 22:19:39

I have t say in 51 years of life and about 36 years of drinking I have never had Lambrini. Is it like Babycham?

Lj8893 Fri 10-May-13 22:18:35

*anyone implied

Holly grin Are you serious?! confused She said she buys it because its cheap. Not because she relies on it.

Talk about jumping the gun!

I buy malibus cheap Iceland version because its cheap. Therefore I must be in need of it.

Lj8893 Fri 10-May-13 22:17:35

Lol holly, I don't think implied those were the reasons they drink it!

wibblyjelly Fri 10-May-13 22:17:05

I saw lambrini cider the other day.....

HollyBerryBush Fri 10-May-13 22:15:13

If you are buying it because it's cheap and gives you a kick, and you need to drink, that's makes you an alcoholic.

Sure cherry lambrini isn't better?? grin

God no, its like piss. Even when I was younger I didn't touch it. I was a MD 20/20 girl myself

UhOhChongo Fri 10-May-13 22:12:45

Yay, that I'm not alone on this one. Am imbibing the "pear" infused nectar as we type. It's on special at Iceland at the moment, £2.50 for the mega bottle.

likeitorlumpit Fri 10-May-13 22:03:29

love the cherry one , thats the only drink in my house .

Lj8893 Fri 10-May-13 22:02:36

Ahh I have some amazing lambrini memories!! I used to buy a big bottle to pre drink before I went clubbing, like 3 times a week!!!

And then my student days were over "boo hoo"

Last time I drank it, it gave me the worst hangover!!

I love it. But only drink it when alone or with my mum from whom I inherited such bad taste
