Wine connoisseurs assert that novice tasters should never pair red wine with fish, white wine with red meat, or excessive wine with jury duty. Lap up today's Groupon in moderate proportions: for $7, you get $15 worth of fine wine, liquor, and beer at Aloha Wine & Liquor's Pensacola Beach and Gulf Breeze locations.
Aloha's knowledgeable oenophiles and friendly beer connoisseurs transform spirit shopping into an enlightening cultural experience. Racks teem with white wines such as Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Barefoot chardonnay ($9.99) and Reserve chardonnay ($16.99). Bottles of Pinnacle vodka ($19.99) and Tanqueray gin ($24.99) help homebody bartenders craft magic in dens, kitchens, and backyard tiki bars. Monthly wine tastings also make Aloha an ideal spot to sample newborn merlots and other spirited friends who've grown tastier and wiser with age.
