Being a girl who doesn’t like beer is a bit of a problem on patriotic holidays. I mean, not having a Bud in your hand at any given second on the Fourth of July is practically a crime punishable by having a bald eagle poke your eyes out. Luckily, there’s now a way for us winos to embrace the red, the white, the rose, and now the blue.
Thanks to a Spanish wine company called Gik, Blue Nun is an amazing reality.
Apparently the hue comes from a combo of red and white grapes from four different regions of Spain with a bit of indigo and anthocyanin to give it the electric coloring.
Apparently it tastes like a super sweet white, but we all know we’re drinking it because it makes the perfect Instagram accessory.
Just one tiny issue: it’s only available in Spain at the moment. So it’s time to shoot that guy you met on your semester abroad a Facebook message with explicit directions to express ship a few bottle over ASAP.
Or maybe next year? We’ll be (impatiently) waiting.
