Alcopops might be known as ‘tart fuel’, but one cannot drink Grand Cru Burgundy all of the time. My favourite are the Quinns brand. These are made from fermented fruit juice with extra fruit juice added after the fermentation has finished; they are made from 100% fruit juice rather than having extra alcohol added. Even though they are very fruity they are not overly sweet, there is a nice balance between the fresh fruit flavours and lively acidity. They are also only 4% alcohol so are not tiring to drink of an afternoon. My favourite flavour is the pressed raspberry and blueberry. You can get them from the supermarket Waitrose and their online operation. Since it is approaching midday I might well pour myself one now.
