Coca-Cola flavoured wine

Ever tried Basque-country's classic tipple of red wine and coke? If you haven't, we imagine you probably think it sounds like a barman got drunk (sorry, drunker) and got your order mixed up. Yet, it's actually pretty tasty.

So, if you have, and you actually like it, then we've got some good news for you: The French Châteaux en Bordeaux’s Hausmann Famille wine company is rolling out a special coke-flavoured wine next month.

Named Rouge Sucette, which means red lollipop, the drink consists of 75 per cent wine and 25 per cent sugar, water, and soda flavoring, and follows the brand's success with their passion fruit flavoured rosé wine.

While it's only being sold in France currently, there are rumours that Rouge Sucette is being considered for a listing by Sainsbury’s.

If you're still not convinced by this strange drink combination, just remember this: bacon brownies taste amazing.
