Happy Four Loko Friday! First off, I would like to welcome all of you that have been with bumwinebob.com since the start, and also welcome everyone who is reading this post with our friends over at Corner Pub Sports! After a weekend in Las Vegas, Bum Wine Bob has returned home and is back with a new feature of the week for all you loyal bum wine enthusiasts to enjoy.
Coming off a big weekend in Vegas, I felt it was time to switch things up a bit and highlight a new type of beverage as our __ of the week. As you know, we have put the spotlight on a variety of different bum wines, beers, 40's, and even wines at different times for our feature of the week. Due to popular demand, this is the week we continue the expansion with a forte into the world of malt beverages!
Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to induct Four Loko Strawberry Lemonade as the first ever BWB Malt Beverage Of The Week!
Upon arriving in Las Vegas, the first thing we had to do was head out and stock up on some booze. The closest and most convenient place to where we were staying was a Walgreens just down the strip. Now I'm all for the ease and convenience of being able to stock up on your drinking essentials while picking up some other necessities, but the prices of the alcohol were less than desired. I would have figured that booze in Las Vegas would be cheaper, but I guess I was wrong. $21.99 for a 20 pack of Bud Light? I can get a 30 for the same price here. And who sells just a 20 pack? I'd like 10 more beers please! We are looking for drinking on the cheap over here. $3.99 for one can of Four Loko? Now that IS loco!
After scanning the alcohol selection the first thing that caught our eyes was a shelf full of Four Loko. What is the perfect way to kickoff your trip to Las Vegas? With a Four Loko of course! With a variety of different flavors to choose from, I decided on the Strawberry Lemonade. I have to honestly say that this is the first Four Loko I have enjoyed in quite some time, so with the first sip I could feel the rush take over me. The taste itself is tolerable and with 12% alcohol packed in a 24 ounce can, you know that the taste really isn't too important. At this point you are just trying to get yourself fucked up while waiting for shit to get real.
Now we all know that these drinks do not pack the same punch as the original Four Loko, but they are still a good way to start off your drinking escapades for the evening. I say go with one or maybe two cans in one sitting and you are on the right path. If you are drinking anything more than that, I think you might as well grab a bottle of your favorite bum wine to enjoy instead.
While Four Loko can still be classified as a malt liquor or a malt beverage, I felt that we can cover the whole malt world under the "Malt Beverage Of The Week" umbrella for future installments as well. Start you weekend off the right way with a can of Four Loko Strawberry Lemonade! All aboard!
