I figure that this is good a place to ask as any.
Back when I was at University, there was a drink called a "Blastaway". It was an extremely potent mix of Diamond White
Diamond White is a white cider (that's hard cider to you USians), containing 7.5% abv. Castaway was a white-wine cooler drink. It was one of the first round of alcopops, and contained (IIRC) 5.5% abv.
Mixed together, these formed a Blastaway, which tasted like an extremely refreshing tropical drink (kind of like Lilt). Because of the ease with which these could be drunk, and the excessive alcohol content, they were extremely dangerous.
We drank many many pints of this stuff at University.
Unfortunately, you can no longer get Castaway.
I have two questions:
1. Does anybody know what happened to it?
2. Does anybody know of a modern-day alternative, for those occasions when trips down memory-loss lane are required?
