Simple answer to the wine (or not) for communion question

I think Scripture is fairly clear that wine (not grape juice) should be served at the Lord's Supper. Thus anyone suggesting that the drink to be offered at communion should be something sickly like Kool-Aid instead of a hearty Chateauneuf du Pape badly needs to hear Chesterton's prescient rebuke against the temperance movement:
If an angel out of heaven
gives you something else to drink,
Thank him for his kind intentions;
Go pour them down the sink
Or as the Psalmist puts, God likes it when we raise a toast to Him
