Blue Drink

What the heck is that blue beverage she has in her hand? Estrogen hormones and Gatorade? The latest Smirnoff Ice flavor "pool water"? Listerine?

Georgi vodka has its own version of the Smirnoff Ice, but way worse. It comes in several flavors, and the worst of all is the one that's not even named after a fruit or flavor, it's just called "Blue". The blue flavor in candies is always a bit of a mystery, it doesn't quite taste like anything you've ever tasted. Well, the Blue Georgi is no mystery - it tastes like deli. If you could translate the smells, sights, and ethos of the average bodega and made it into a flavor, this would be the exact taste. Take my word for it.

it's called "WKD" (http://www.wkd.co.uk/) and is the most hideous suggary concoction you can imagine. Actually, there is a worse one that sells over here, but I have blocked it from my memory for the terrible effects it has on your head and your ass the next day.

I think that t-shirt is 100% accurate in the front...

A great drink enjoyed by many a binge drinker in the UK is called a TURBO shandy. A turbo Shandy is 2 thirds Stella artois (the expensive lager) and one third WKD blue (the drink in the picture of the monster and his bride). It turns into a pint of green liquid with foam on the top, and gets you hella krunk if drunk in large quantity.

Royal Britania rules the waves.

I think it's what's left of her dignity. "Now raspberry flavored!"

So proud to be British right now :*)

I think Richard might be thinking of VK (short for Vodka Kick) which is an even less classy version of WKD. Euurrghhh.

And why is Gordon Ramsay crashing her party?

@Anonymous: oh god yes, that's the stuff. VK Apple for £1 a bottle in crappy clubs is NOT an offer you should take up.

WKD is best mixed with port to form a 'cheeky Vimto'. So named because it tastes uncannily like the unpopular soft drink of the same name.

Like that episode of the Office (US version) where Michael and Ryan have this exchange- Ryan: What about this bottle of power drink?
Michael: What flavor?
Ryan: Blue.
Michael: Blue is not a flavor…
Ryan: It says flavor: blue blast.
I laughed so hard.

Not to mention "grape flavor."
Who thinks this actually tastes anything like grapes??? They should just call it Purple. Purple flavor. Like blue, but..purpler.

Even without the drinks you could tell it was a British picture.

WKD is a vodka based fruit flavoured drink one of many generally referred to as alcopops. Pop being a general term for fizzy drink ("soda" to anyone else).

Hooch (lemon flavoured), MD20/20, Smirnoff Ice, ah yes, I remeber them well.

If you look through his Flickr you'll see that this woman you called a "monster" passed away in a freak electrical accident a couple years back. Way to be an asshole Matt.

Blue WKD is like drinking a Smurf. Kinda like a spiked, melted blue slush puppy. I love it but that shames me. It also goes by the name "Bimbo Juice".
