Name: Myx Fusions Moscato
Type: Wine cooler
ABV: 5.5 percent
Try This Drink If You Like: Asti sparkling wine
Nicki Minaj is the new face of moscato, a sweet, effervescent wine. The chanteuse, known just as much for her sense of style as her music, partnered with Myx Fusions to give the world what it was apparently missing. A moscato-based wine cooler.
Truth be told, I wanted to hate it. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised by all three flavors: Original Moscato, Peach Moscato, and Coconut Moscato. I’m not going to describe an upscale wine cooler with fancy sommelier terms, but I will tell you why you need Myx Fusions Moscato at your next tailgate.
- Nicki Minaj’s wine coolers are very, very tasty. Each incarnation is fresh, spritzy, and sweet without being cloying. The peach- and coconut-flavored moscatos are infused with actual fruit.
- At 5.5% ABV per 6.3 ounce bottle, you can pregame with several of these without getting tanked before the main event.
- The packaging is tailgate-friendly. Myx Fusions Moscato comes in 4-packs of cobalt blue bottles and can easily be stacked in a cooler with beer.
- Not everyone is a beer drinker, especially in the morning. Throw some orange juice into an Original Moscato for an easy mimosa.
- TWIST-OFF CAPS!
Nicki Minaj has been quoted as saying that rapping is her favorite sport. But, what team does she actually root for? I reached out to her “people” to find out, but received no response. Therefore, I can only assume that she, like me, roots for the underdog. The Cleveland Browns. Cheers! –written by LeeAnn Marhevsky
