13. Boxed Wine

When most people hear the phrase “boxed wine,” they think of cheap glorified grape juice. Franzia is a classic joke amongst frat-boys. However, boxed wine is in the process of a serious comeback.

First of all, boxed wine stays fresh for much longer than the traditional corked bottle. A box of wine also, usually, holds 3-4 bottles’ worth, and costs significantly less than the bottles would cost alone. 

My friend Angus introduced me to Killer Juice Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s more than decent, and much better than I expected when I saw the spigot. I like a bold, full-bodied red wine, and this did not disappoint. It was dark in color, unlike its pale sister Franzia. And the taste was absolutely worth the $20 price tag (remember that this is for much more than just a bottle).
