I recently discovered Passoa also, to flavour my champagne/prosecco...

Anyone else a fan?

What's that?

What is it called, Ing? Maybe I know it. (But I'm not so fond of sweet aperos.) Know what I hate, though? Pastis/Ricard. The farmers here love that stuff.  :P

I'll have to ask my friends who live there, forgot the name.

So if you dislike Pastis, you're probably not fond of ouzo or raki either...

I hated them before age 25, but came to like them when I started living in France.

I got completely sick drunk on pernod and black when I was 18 and have not been able to stand the smell since

When I was younger, I loved sherry.

Nowadays it is seldomly served, even at peoples' homes.

"down in Bolivia, where the people are insane,
they want as much for coffee as they do for cocaine."

of course that was in the 80s.  it must have been some misunderstanding over the exchange rate.

And Marc you'd be rather surprised at 'American' coffee I think.  Here in SF there is a whole tendency toward single cup drip coffee.  One particular coffee place here in SF was started by a guy from the Middle East (I think Yemen) and at his place they have different blends with different overtones of flavor (not flavored coffee - that stuff is garbage - I mean the actual flavor of the beans).  Very very good, imho.

Ah - but that would be Yemenite coffee then, wouldn't it ;)?
I mean the regular filter coffee.

well, none of us fancies ourselves typical, I dare say

True!

Sparkling water - an addiction for me.

And white wines from Burgundy, the dryer the better.

Noilly Prat - hate it !

But there's a wonderful apéritif in the Pyrénées-Orientales, in the area close to Prades. Very sweet. One drinks it on the rocks, it's a bit like Muscadet...



I must try this sometime...

Sparkling water, left off my list, but I love it!
