104. IdeaSpark*: Macho Red Wine Beer December 24, 2006Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Food and Drink, IdeaSpark*.
I know that a glass of red wine a day is actually good for my health, but after work, I prefer kicking back with a cold beer. And I know that beer is not good for me, and will probably just add to my expanding gut.
I wish they would come up with a more macho beverage made of red wine. Similar to a wine cooler, I guess, but bottled and marketed like beer (e.g. give it a tough name, like Ox-Blood #9). If the makers could pull it off, not only would I look manly ordering one in a bar, but I would look smart and more likely to live longer.
Even though this drink may never be thought of as macho, it may still be considered metrosexual, and I could live with that. I would drink one to wash down my skinless buffalo wings and baked tofu fries.
