  • 'Cherry B'

    Am I the first ?! I was born in 1953, and I all but grew up with a fabulous dark red little drink called Cherry B ! It came in a small bottle that would have been about a wine glass and a half or today's large glass...It was about 14% proof, and despite it's feminine quality, and its' sweet cherry flavour, it definitely had a kick...the amazing news is that in Yeovil near where I live, YOU CAN STILL GET IT !

    I'm too young to remember it first time round but an older cousin of mine often spoke of getting drunk on cherry B as a teenager. A couple of years ago I spotted some in the supermarket along with little bottles of snowball (another thing that passed me by) so I got some to try. Have to say I could hardly drink the cherry B. It was disgusting! The snowball wasn't much better but did manage to drink it.

      I've not heard of that, but I like a measure of cherry brandy in a glass of coke.

              Saw this Cherry B drink in a small off licence window but you can (at the moment) buy it from ASDA. I don't have a local ASDA so I will buy it online with my groceries. Is it nice though? It states it's 11.5% and for 4 small bottles 2.50. Can be drunk neat or with lemonade or????? Has it made a comeback or has it been out for ages?

              My mum said she drank it in her younger days and remembers the jingle:-
              ♫Cherry B, Cherry B
              It’s the cherry wine with Pop! Pop! Pop!
              Cherry B, Cherry B
              It's the sparkling drink for me!♫

                Was another name for it egg nogg ? I once drank these egg noggs circa late 1990's. They are usually drank at Christmas (I think).

                  No, it's kind of similar, but they are different.
                  Snowball is a mix of Advocaat and Lemonade (sometimes a splash of lime juice too).
                  I used to love having a sip or two when I was young, but I haven't had one for years.

                  And to get back on topic.

                  I bought some Cherry B a few years back as I had always wanted to try it.
                  Unfortunately I didn't like it so I gave it to a girl I know (who loved it !).
                  It's on sale at loads of places in my area.

                    OK Folks! My friend Suzy and I used to drink this in 1983, we ordered half a sweet cider sipped some out and poured the cherry B into it, it was known as a "Leg Over" Honestly, it was!

                    It does resemble cherry brandy in appearance and taste.

                      You are not kidding, I was in the Royal Navy and I remember the lads saying 'Feed the women with Cherry B and it will drop their knickers without them knowing' - It did the trick and the Navy Nickname for Cherry B is 'The Knicker Dropper!'
