Re: Would you drink zero alcohol wine

Absolutely. While I enjoy a nice buzz now and then, like others have said, if I wanted to get drunk/buzzed, tito's would do the trick nicely at a more wallet friendly price. I heard snorting vodka is a quick way to get it into the blood stream too. Stains teeth less too. [snort.gif]
