Okay as long as it isn't after cheap Retsina.  ;) :D

There are soooo many good drinks, and I am glad to say that despite drinking a ton of it, alcohol is not poison to me :) :) :)

Tanqueray and Tonic is my numero uno at the moment  ;D

endless sex, barring that, good Vodka, then when that's run out, cheap vodka.

I'm a bit like that with whiskey, I prefer the good stuff, but the £7.00 a bottle rot gut will do at a pinch.

Do you think it's to do with being from Essex?

Recently at a party during drinking games I was introduced to the Woo Woo (Vodka, Archers and Cranberry juice).... Lethal stuff! I was completely pissed before the end of the game!!!!!

I seem to go for odd, even bitter flavours esp. in alcoholic drinks. Once I was up in the mountains with our farmer neighbors where they put the cows to graze for the summer and one of them pulled up this plant by the roots. He scraped the dirt off and told me to bite down on the root. It tasted ghastly, so bitter I gagged. He told me there is an aperitif made from it, which I could hardly believe. A week later someone offered me a "suze" and as soon as I tasted it I recognised that root. But it was delicious! The plant it's made from is called gentian and Suze is the most well known brand in France. It's one of those liqueurs that you either love or hate, though.

I used to drink bitters and soda, Kim...sounds fascinating.  Here's the website:

I used to drink chartreuse too - usually green, but I've tried yellow too.

Most wines - white or rosé before a meal, any with the meal but preferably red.

Gin and tonic or with fruit juice or fruit cordial.

Not beer - don't hate it but it never seems worth the effort.  It's too wet and sloshy and I'd rather go without alcohol than drink it.

Sparkling water

Ginger beer

COFFEE

-Sparkling water - Yes !

 - Like 'George Costanza's father on the TV show  Seinfeld , I have "an unhealthy relationship" with club soda --  how could sparkling water be drinkable, and yet be so useful?!

A nice chilled white wine (red gives me a headache uness I'm eating good Italian bread with it).  After a big meal, a small Amaretto or a Bailey's on the rocks.  If I must have a mixed drink, I'll have a G&T.
