Yeah, Kamikazees and Alabama Slammers and Wine Coolers. Those were our 'Energy Drinks' of the 80s.

In the 70's we drove our chevy to the levee and drank cases of Coors beer, & Boones Farm Strawberry Hill wine, and can't forget the Spanada & Tyrolia.

My buddies and I used to mix fruit drinks with Everclear, and how about Purple Passion.  Im sure glad I don't do that anymore, but it was fun then.

I'm a fermenter and I presently have 15 gallons of apple cider fermenting with champagne yeast, brown sugar, and raisens. Once it is done, it will be a 18% alcohol wine that I "Jack" three times. (freeze and pour off the liquid- discarding the ice)
Result? "APPLE JACK" A 66% alcohol high test "wine". Very warm and tastey!!

I remember in the late 80s in Australia Wine Coolers were really popular. They just tasted like tropical fruit juice. The 2 most popular ones were & possibly the only 2 were Tropicana & West Coast Cooler.

I remember for awhile Jukon Jack (The Black Sheep of Canadian Liquors) was really big.  I can still find it now, but it doesn't seem to be a big thing anymore.

Eeeeewwww, that reminds me of an evening spent incapacitated by a dumpster behind a nightclub.  Gross.  I blame slippery nipples!
