New York-based Arbor Mist is all about flavor -- whether you prefer the Mixed Berry Pinot Noir or the Island Fruits Pinot Grigio. These babies aren't high in alcohol content, but Arbor Mist offers twelve juicy flavors -- plus two sparkling variations -- to sample while watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills marathon. (Be honest, could you get through a PTA meeting stone-cold sober?)

It tastes like a milkshake blended in battery acid.
