Sounds to me like some of these flavored products were created to appeal to a certain crowd who probably isn't old enough to be legally drinking them.

Sounds interesting. I like Black & White Russians. When it comes to food & drink, I'll try (almost) anything once.

How about a Lime Sherbet Margarita?

Sounds like some of those cheap wines of the 70's that were a favorite with college kids.

Boone's Farm apple wine, Ripple, Orange Driver, the ever popular but horrendous Mad Dog 20/20...I am glad those days are long past me!

"Designer" & diet booze seem to be all the rage. If you watch The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, New York, or New Jersey (& you probably don't lol), several women have come out with their own brands & flavors, i.e. Bethenny Frankel's Skinnygirl spirits (diet - in different flavors).

Bethenny Frankel's Skinnygirl cocktails reportedly fetched $120 million - Reality TV World

Ramon's Pinot Grigio (NY) & Teresa (NJ) was sampling wines for a (diet?) peach bellini.
