Flamme special: Beaujolais Nouveau and Coke at RMB13 per glass

Looks of disapproval are free.

People like to snicker at Chinese who mix wine and Coke even though: 1) such mixology can make some of the crappier vino more palatable and 2) such a combo is imbibed about the world. If you haven’t tried it, and would like to, Flamme in Sanlitun Village, has a superb deal on tonight, with 2010 Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais Nouveau on at RMB25 per glass, and only RMB13 during happy hour (until 7:30 PM), with Coke at no extra charge. If it doesn’t end up being your thing, you can always wash the taste away with a Vesper Martini or Smoky Martini (RMB50 / RMB25 happy hour) or some Ketel One vodka shots (RMB20 / RMB10 during happy hour).
