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

I love it too -much prefer it to proper wine!

I am drinking it right now, love it, tastes like cider a bit to me!

Atf at "cheerful"

Whitershadeofpale Fri 10-May-13 22:01:12

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

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!!

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

SPsCliffingAllOverMN Fri 10-May-13 22:18:15

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.

*anyone implied

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

bulletwithbutterflywings Fri 10-May-13 22:20:21

Where did she say she needs it? hmm

bootsycollins Fri 10-May-13 22:20:41

Beware! Tis the devils brew! hmm

Remember that awful Thunderbirds stuff? Ewwwww

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--)

bulletwithbutterflywings Fri 10-May-13 22:22:03

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

gordyslovesheep Fri 10-May-13 22:24:39

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

SkinnybitchWannabe Fri 10-May-13 22:26:18

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

HollyBerryBush Fri 10-May-13 22:26:38

>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

JackieTheFart Fri 10-May-13 22:27:49

I've never had it.

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

ArbitraryUsername Fri 10-May-13 22:29:57

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.

Lj8893 Fri 10-May-13 22:32:55

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!
