Coolers part 7: Vex Hard Cranberry Lemonade

hard cranberry

According to the kids today, vodka coolers are in. And they should know. After all, the world is made for 20-somethings and young 30-somethings. Movies are made for them. Television shows are made for them. Music gadgets and accessories are made for them. Internet blogging tools and camera phones exist so that these 20-somethings can tell us more and more about how cool things are, what's in and what's out, and who has the best site for cartoons and whale tails.

Thank goodness for these folks. I was getting sick of the boomers.

How do you recognize this demographic? Look around, they're taking pictures with their cellphones. They're text messaging. They're asking "Where are you now?" and listening patiently for a response from their friend on the other end of the cellphone. Thank goodness for them! They're doing a real-time play-by-play of their lives, oblivious to the world around them! It doesn't matter if gas prices are high, Mum and Dad fill the tank. It doesn't matter if the CBC is in trouble, they're listening to some Napoleon Dynamite wannabe podcast from Seattle.

Thank goodness for them! They're recording all their memories on camera phones and blog journals and sharing them with their global peers! So in 15-20 years when they're like me and can't remember who their best friend was in their first cubicle job, they can look back through their blog archives and see a cameraphone picture of a group of happy young things who didn't have a care in the world. And then they'll take another pull on their vodka cooler and say, "Man, those were the days!"

But they're right, some vodka coolers are pretty damn fine. Like this Vex Hard Cranberry Lemonade. It's not sweet, which is always good. It's bubbly and refreshing. I suppose it tastes a bit like cranberries, but who really knows what they taste like except when they repeat on you after Thanksgiving weekend? Does it deserve a perfect score? Not quite. But it is 7% alcohol which is worth an extra bonus point!
