feel the same as when I encountered Whistle Piss
at Whistle Pig Brewing
: Why make us think about urine while drinking? Here we have Palmer Lake-based Evergood Elixirs
’ Skier Pee citrus wine. Despite the Gewürztraminer -like aroma, in a sip it’s Manischewitz Passover wine — not artificial, but sweet and punchy at 10 percent ABV, lingering with lemon even through a cigarette and half a Diet Pepsi for one friend, while another says it’s what you drink “when someone had a breakup and you’re watching Mean Girls.” Evergood Elixirs’ Snow Bunny (also around $10.99/bomber) adds strawberry to the lemon tartness, and delivers on the fruit’s flavor, just in a way that takes me back to underage acquisition of something like a (less boozy) Boone’s Farm bottle or (more boozy) strawberry-flavored Mad Dog 20/20. This just isn’t my jam, even on a hot day over ice, or with food. My friend however says she’d be happy to pop a bottle, so there’s a market for everything ... even pee-named drinks.
