Secret Diaries of Dr. Victor Drankenstein Ch. 18: On the Joose

I’ll just be honest here, normally I wouldn’t bother dusting off my lab coat for a Joose review.  Not that it’s necessarily bad or anything, it’s just that the flavors tend to get released in lockstep with their main competitor Four Loko, so there’s just no reason to bother.  Except for Dragon Joose I guess, but I got that mostly because I’m a sucker for things about dragons-even drinks, apparently.  And even that just ended up being grape.  Nothing to write the Internet about.  Now Sweet Peach Iced Tea and Mango,  that’s super exciting right?  How about if I drink both?  Yeah, now we’re talking!

Secret Diaries of Dr. Victor Drankenstein Ch. 3: Section 8 Margaritaville

It's like a vacation in a can!

Another week has gone by, heralding another chapter in the ongoing diaries of Dr. Victor Drankenstein.  After last week’s misfortune, you might think I’d be wary of crazy-potent malt liquor claiming to taste like a tropical cocktail.  If you did think that though, you don’t know me very well.  I don’t learn lessons, and these things will continue to lure me in as long as they make them.   Therefore, tonight I will be taking substantial risks and rocking a margarita flavored Spiked Core.
