We Got Very Drunk (At Work) On Kingfisher's New Breezer-Style Drink

It's true, pun enthusiasts: BuzzFeed was fed some Buzz.

Posted on

Hey pals! Kingfisher is launching a Breezer-style concoction called "Buzz". And they sent us a shit-load.

BuzzFeed

(They also included a very nice note that uses the word "buzz" six times.)

Obviously, because #journalism, my first question was: How many of these it would take to get a person drunk? I enlisted two guinea pigs.

BuzzFeed

And so it began.

We started with the berry flavour.

First impressions:

Srishti: YUMAndre: I've tasted juice that's stronger than this. Can't really taste the alcohol but let's see! Also, too fruity.

Srishti: YUM

Andre: I've tasted juice that's stronger than this. Can't really taste the alcohol but let's see! Also, too fruity.

And their reviews one bottle later:

Srishti: Burps. So many burps. Andre: Still feel like it's fruit punch. And it's unusually gassy.

Srishti: Burps. So many burps.

Andre: Still feel like it's fruit punch. And it's unusually gassy.

Next, my brave subjects went for lychee.

BuzzFeed

And they fuckin' hated it.

Srishti: Tastes like something died in there. #LycheeFromHellAndre: Tastes a lot like nimbu pani for some reason. Less fruity than the red one.

Srishti: Tastes like something died in there. #LycheeFromHell

Andre: Tastes a lot like nimbu pani for some reason. Less fruity than the red one.

But because of my firm-yet-fun management style, they kept on drinking.

Srishti: I don't understand this feeling.Andre: Guys, it's actually not that bad.
BuzzFeed

Srishti: I don't understand this feeling.

Andre: Guys, it's actually not that bad.

On to the next one!

Srishti, who's getting goofy at this point, challenged Andre to a game of Uno. She lost almost immediately.

Srishti: "Drinking is the best, you guys."Andre: "Can I please pour some JD into this? We won't mention it in the post. Please."

Srishti: "Drinking is the best, you guys."

Andre: "Can I please pour some JD into this? We won't mention it in the post. Please."

Srishti: I'm buzzed! Hahahahahahaha

Andre: I've never been this sober in my life.

Andre left for a pee-break and Srishti got really, really sad.

BuzzFeed

Andre came back and we gave them their fourth bottles. Srishti was happy again.

BuzzFeed

This bottle was an eventful one. Srishti found some carrots and cucumbers and giggled while devouring them all by herself.

BuzzFeed

Next, she stole a colleague's bangles and tried convincing us that bangles should be called "arm crowns".

BuzzFeed

(When the rightful owner asked for her bangles to take them home, Srishti refused to return them and insisted they were actually her own.)

BuzzFeed

When I asked her to write down how she felt four drinks down, she tried to convince me she's illiterate. Andre, meanwhile, is bored out of his mind.

BuzzFeed

#5, let's goooo.

BuzzFeed

Halfway through this bottle, Srishti abandoned Andre and went to dance with the TV.

BuzzFeed

And came back to tell us what we already knew.

At this point, Andre angrily left to find "actual fuckin' booze" while Srishti stuck around, partying by herself.

~ FINAL REVIEWS, provided the next day, sober ~

Andre: I'm not a big fan of Breezers but these were nice, if a little on the sweet side. I'd definitely have some with my breakfast in the morning. I'm running out of juice anyway.

Srishti: I never drink alcohol but this tasted like fruit juice so I managed to have a great time.

Same.
