Does anyone here drink Zima?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Guss, Jan 18, 2005.


  1. Zima seems to be the butt of a lot of jokes as far as alcohol goes. I don't understand it at all. What is it supposed to taste like? You don't have to admit that you like it ;)

    I tried it when it first came out at a restaurant I was working at. It sucks. It tastes like rancid 7-up.

    I rember it clearly, and that's from 1 sip, many years ago. It's that bad.
     
  6. While I don't particularly care for the stuff, it's hilarious how people attempt to use not drinking zima as an indicator of their own masculinity. I see it everywhere I go. It's especially funny when the same people are saying they like to drink it for the taste. Okay, I guess that was skyy blue..... but the principal is the same.

    That's because it's an indicator of your masculinity. I read it in "Scientists Said So Monthly."

    I'll drink tea and crumpets all day but I won't touch Zima.

    Now, do you blend the crumpets in with the tea, or do you have access to liquid crumpets?
     
  10. Okay, but I look manly drinking Mike's Hard Lemonaid, right?

    Just wanted to make sure.

    Well it's more of a paste but I do blend it with the tea...kind of a tea and crumpets shake.

    When it came out, they gave a bunch away to a local bar for free. The owner literally couldn't give it all away, it was so bad. He ended up throwing it away after a few weeks.
     
  16. If you're into the pussy drinks, at least go with a Smirnoff. Zima doesn't taste bad or anything, but I'd probably go with a beer.

    :D

    That exact same thing happened at a bar adjoined to a hotel where I used to work. The owner kept bringing those of us working the front desk free Zimas, but most of us passed after the first one. She also tried giving them to our minimum wage housekeeping staff, but apparently they had tried them before, because they refused. She was going to split up the remaing 10 cases among the 5 of them. Those 10 cases wound up in the dumpster.

    If Zima is gay... then Smirnoff Triple black and Smirnoff twist must be the metro cousins of Zima...

    Triple Black tastes like bad sprite, and the twist literally just tastes like fruit juice...
