What You'll Get
During Prohibition, bootleggers made their own booze by burying grapes underground or catching moonbeams in a jar of water. Make alcohol the easy way with today's Groupon: for $37, you get a fruit-wine-kooler experience at Brisa Fine Wine & Gifts in Guelph (a $76.38 value).
Brisa gathers wines from around the globe to grant customers an opportunity to craft wines and coolers themselves. The wine-kooler experience carbonated-drink kit batches a choice from 20 flavours of carbonated fruit koolers ($55) in 24 500-millilitre bottles ($18.98) with caps ($2.40) to quench genial thirst and take the edge off of a long day of narwhal noodling. Mix and match cane sugar and fruit-based flavours such as cranberry, pomegranate, and banana, tangy options such as margarita and hard lemonade, and tropical-tinged Blue Hawaii. Clients may also choose a taste-twisting blend of strawberry-kiwi or berries before tearfully taking a brief separation.
Brisa staff douse rebellious flavouring in a champagne-like froth before blending. The baby beverage grows in age, wisdom, and alcohol proof over a five-week gestation, until koolers are bottled and ready to take home for refrigeration. Customers mix any number of carbonated tongue cloaks from Brisa's list of koolers, preparing for nostalgic summer days filled with recumbent Segway rides.
