MD 20/20 Orange 75cl
MD 20/20, also knows as Mad Dog 20/20 or just Mad Dog, is a cheap fortified wine that comes in several delicious flavors.
Who ever thought up 20/20 was clearly aiming for the under 12s alcoholic market. Its price for a start is clearly set to be within pocket money parameters and coupled with the fact it looks like a kids colour dream its principal purpose must be to intoxicate toddlers . Its a very long time since I have sunk so low as to buy this sort of trampagne, but once upon a time it wasn't unusual for me to sup the occasional bargain bucket brain smoosher such as this. If you order a case of this crap on line these days you can actually pay little at roughly 18% this means that your average rough sleeper trying to fight of the freezing cold, can get to blotto level without having to drink 3 litres of white cider. This convenient fact means that the constant trips to the wee wee pot are cut in half reducing your exposure to the freezing weather.
The taste of "Mad Dog" 20/20 is not as unpleasant as you imagine and tastes like the last house gin and orange from the bottle or a weak orange squash spiked with meths. The strange sight recently of attractive young women gently sucking 20/20 from a little mini bottle and a straw in pubs and clubs, makes me question the very nature of the Universe itself, what possesses these otherwise sane individuals to decline the offer of a frothing pint of lager in favour of a drink that may be causing spleen bleeding?
There are many flavours of 20/20 of course and the blue one that may be the contents of a marine glow stick seems very popular down as my local offie, especially with the parade of mid-teens who hang around furtively waiting for the blind lady to come on duty, so they can purchase this grot by putting on a deep and impressive voice. So in conclusion, unless you are homeless or juvenile this drink will loose any appeal the moment you open the bottle. It may however be good for killing roaches.
