喝Kirin冰結Strong 荔枝 調酒想起兩段往事 Kirin Strong Litchi Cocktail reminds me two memories

Kirin冰結調酒,我常覺得過甜,酒精度又稍低。

但日本是酒鬼市場,酒廠靈活針對酒鬼調整策略,弄出酒精度9%加強版冰結Strong系列,還加碼推出限定期間的荔枝調酒,非要賺到我這酒鬼的錢為止。

Kirin fruit Cocktail seemed too sweet to me but “Strong” series products fixed this problem. As I tried to resist to buy any too sweet or too low alc/vol drinks , Liquor Corporations always could find a way to seduce me.

荔枝、酒精度9%,擊垮理智,也勾起兩段回憶。

Kirin Strong Litchi Cocktail with 9% alc/vol reminds me two memories.

荔枝是上火的美味水果,李時珍在《本草綱目》說:「荔枝氣味純陽,其性微熱。鮮者食多,即齦腫口痛也。」。

Litchi is a delicious fruit that could bring you some internal body heat symptoms.

我小時吃荔枝不止牙齦腫痛,有幾年住在台灣黑葉荔枝盛產地潭子鄉頭家村,每年父母買荔枝都警告我,不可吃太多,而不懂事的小胖子一定吃過量,晚上睡覺一定流鼻血,害母親辛苦洗枕頭套。

As I was a child, my parents warned me not to eat Litchi too much. But I often ignored their warnings to eat a lot of Litchi to cause myself a nose bleed.

荔枝果肉含糖量高達20%;每一百毫升果汁中,維生素C含量最高可達70毫克,是一個既甜又有維生素C的水果,調酒最難處,在如何讓人嚐出荔枝味,又不覺得甜。

Litchi is also a fruit with 20% degree Brix & a lot of Vitamin C. It’s not easy to make a balanced cocktail tasted not so sweet.

Kirin冰結Strong荔枝調酒,讓我想起跟老婆去沖繩旅遊的糗事。

Kirin Strong fruit Cocktail made me like a fool once during our family tour in Okinawa.

冰結Strong系列調酒入口輕盈,好像果汁,冰透時麻痺舌頭根本嚐不出酒味,老婆晚餐前警告我不可喝太多,但在沖繩高溫下,我一口氣連灌三瓶,等老婆梳洗打扮好要去吃晚飯,卻發現我倒在房間地上,怎麼踢都踢不醒。

My wife warned me not drinking too much before dinner. But I finished 3 cans of Kirin Strong fruit Cocktail.

As a result, my wife had to have dinner alone at that night. She complained that she couldn’t wake me up by kicking my butt after I had finished 3 cans of the drink.

怎麼踢都踢不醒,跟小時候吃荔枝吃到流鼻血,是讓我決定買Kirin冰結Strong荔枝調酒的兩段回憶,速喝易醉與喝得出調強的酒精味,是小缺憾。
