As the logical follow-up to their wine of the month club, storied soft rock band Train unveiled their signature “Drops Of Jupiter” wine this week, which is named after one of their early hits. What does it taste like? I’m guessing a smooth petite Syrah with top notes of soul patch and rocker hair. “We’re trying to create just this little vibe, where people come to our shows, bring a picnic basket and bottle of wine,” guitarist Jimmy Stafford told Billboard. (I wonder what the security teams at the venues they play at think about that?)
Anyway, in honor of this momentous occasion, we’ve compiled a list of four more celebrity drinks we’d like to try. We’re usually the Diet Coke types, but maybe it’s time we swirl some of these around in our mouths?
Lil’ Jon’s CRUNK!!! Energy Drink: According to its autoplay-happy website, CRUNK!!! is all about “revving up your life–in a bold, all natural way!” It also offers CRUNK!!! Energy Stix, which, as far as we can tell, are basically pixie stix with a “proprietary blend” of ancient crunkifying herbs added. And despite posting a song called “Acta Fool” on his website, Lil’ Jon wants you to enjoy CRUNK!!! responsibly; no “Crunktails” unless you’re 21. Can we say “Crunk” one more time?
Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez’s Tap Water: Remember this stuff? These three celebs drew forth magical tap water from their golden faucets so that people would donate to UNICEF in exchange for a chance to win a taste of the sweet, sweet, famous person fluid. It’s the next best thing to getting a clipping of their hair, and it’s probably more delicious than our tap water!
Marilyn Manson’s “Mansinthe”: In keeping with his über-Goth image, shock rocker Marilyn Manson got in on the recent resurgence in absinthe’s popularity with his own special version called Mansinthe. (Manson + absinthe = MANSINTHE, get it?!) According to a 2007 interview in Spin, he isn’t fronting: Dude drinks a ton of absinthe. Way to put your liver where your mouth is.
Charlie Sheen’s Tiger Blood: JK, this one’s not a real drink. But if were, we probably couldn’t handle it…socially. Even if it would turn us into “a total fricking rock star from Mars,” we don’t think we could handle the “Warning” label: “You might lose your job, be excommunicated from society and begin to scare small children.”
What about you guys? Have you had any of these drinks? Which ones do we need to try and which ones should we pour down the drain? Let us know!
