Oh noes! Not a 5% alcohol sales tax! Cue predictable 'woe-is-me' NH border package store story. Wah.
The idea that 50 cents on a $10 bottle of wine is going to send people heading for the (NH) hills is deranged. It would cost more in gas to get there. So, actually, if we increase the gas tax at the same time, maybe we'd be in money. This could work out.
