Cooperation during the war did not denote a formal relationship as much as it was brought on by neccessity because of the Dominion/Cardassian threat to the Alpha (and Beta) quadrants. I would imagine that if we were to follow the fan series Hidden Frontier and see the more formal relations between Romulans and Feds/Klingons, then there might have been a lifting of the embargo.
Right, it's like a Cuban Cigar.
I bought a few of the Romulan Ales', I thought it was pretty good.

"Vorta are immune to most forms of poison...It comes in handy when you're a

BUT, since I'm still human, I'll go with Romulan Ale.
However, I never turn down a shot of tequila.

*I also bought a Romulan Ale from the Star Trek Experience, but I gave it to
my boss at the time with a Klingon shot glass...He never did drink it.*

Here is what Wikipedia has to say on the subject.
Klingon Blood Wine An alcoholic beverage renowned for its flavor and potency. It has been mentioned that Blood Wine is stronger than Earth whisky. Few non-Klingons drink Blood Wine because of its potency. Klingons often drink Blood Wine when celebrating after a battle and while trading war stories. Klingons expect their Blood Wine to be served warm. Whether it actually contains blood is unknown to Trekkies, though in formal ceremonies, a participant will add his or her own blood by cutting their hand above the wine. (For example, some Spanish wines have "Sangre" (blood) in their names; it is possible the Blood Wine contains no blood.)

Sounds like some good stuff, as long as you don't add the blood yourself.
