Would you give this a try?   (Friends Fun Wine)

(Newser) – You never knew you wanted it, but it's here anyway. The "wine in a can specialists" at Friends Fun Wine have come up with the world's first coffee-flavored wine—a combination of "the world's most popular Day Drink with the world's most popular Night Drink," the company says, per Jezebel. Intrigued? Disgusted? Either way, the company makes its pitch, boasting that the "Cabernet Coffee Espresso features a rich flavor of cabernet grapes, espresso coffee, and a hint of chocolate, while Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino features sweet Chardonnay grapes with vanilla cappuccino coffee and smooth hints of chocolate."

Hey, it's no butter and coffee combo, but "no one is arguing with the appeal of using caffeine to combat the sleepy feeling you get when indulging in a glass of vino," writes Eliana Dockterman at Time. Still, "there may be a reason that people usually keep these day and night drinks separate." Friends Fun Wine, which also makes flavored sangrias and moscatos, doesn't specify if the drinks actually include coffee or just coffee flavor, so it isn't clear what the caffeine content might be. But they are low-calorie with 6% alcohol content. (Still think this brew sounds weird? You should check out what they're drinking in North Korea.)
