Back when I was in high school we used to chase shots of 100 proof Peppermint Schnapps with Boone's Farm Apple wine.   Somehow, the combination 'worked'.  <shudder>

That almost makes all those amaretto and slow gin drinks my friends thought were so good in high school sound drinkable.   :o

Even back at 16 I usually just drank 7&7 or BV on rocks.  Never been much for mixes.  Except margaritas, I still love margaritas...

You and I must be around the same age. I remember drinking that crap.

No, but close.  I grew up in RI.  Must have been a NE thing.
We only did it during the cold weather.

Would that have been the apple country qwencher? And I do think that was how it was spelled on the label. The fraternity house had some groupies that were fans of all things "Boone's Farm"

I do have some fond memories of playing the "All the Who's in Whoville" drinking game with a few bottles of Boone's back in my dorm at URI.
