Cold Duck is a type of champagne consisting of burgundy wine instead of the usual white wine.
This was a popular drink back in the 1970s and was the champagne of choice among most pimps. Back then there were several Cold Duck manufactures but today, the only one that I know of is by Andre which is an economy brand.
The only Cold Duck retailers today are found at fine purveyors of wine & spirits in inner-cities across America.
OK I’ve sugarcoated that part as much as I could. It’s a ghetto street wine!
I have to go in to the rough parts of town to find it. What I don’t understand is that the brand Andre is sold at every grocery store. Only there Brut and Extra Dry is found at every grocery store but the liquor stores in the rough parts of town has many other flavors of Andre including Cold Duck.
I am not a fan of champagne but I’ll drink it if there is nothing else to drink. I like red wines so the Cold Duck is OK but I just don’t understand why it has such a bad reputation.
For those who remember the TV show Bob Newhart, there was a character that would show up to the party with a bottle of Cold Duck. Same thing on the TV show In Living Color. The pimp named Frenchie would show up to exclusive parties with a bottle of Cold Duck.
It was hilarious!
