    Plain water for me, please. You can put a slice of lemon in it to make it fancier. :)

    Even when I did drink wine I never liked red, always white for me.

    This reminds me of the bottles of wine we received last Christmas season. On Christmas eve, we cooled 2 bottles in the fridge, 1 red wine and a sparkling grape juice. Well, the grape juice was consumed and the wine was not opened. On New Year's eve, the same scenario happened, the bottle of red wine remained capped. My husband said that he couldn't open the wine bottle because it seems that he is the only one who would drink. And that wine cannot remain for long, it should be consumed when opened. So it seems that we need some house guests for that wine to be opened.

    My default position is cask-conditioned ale, but a glass or twelve of good wine never goes amiss. As long as it's not sweet or fizzy, I am usually content. As somebody once said, champagne is for those with lots of money but no taste.

    image.jpg My cheap wine way back when was a jug of Gallo Rhine wine.

    Now the cheapest would be "two buck chuck" from Trader Joe's.

    Two bucks for a bottle of wine at Trader Joe's??? That's even cheaper than a bottle of Night Train Express!

    I don't really like wine but I drink 3 or 4 ounces of red wine almost every evening. I alternate between red muscadine, blackberry, and elderberry wines.

    I drink mainly beer nowadays, though I am partial to the local church wine here which is less than $2 a bottle. Georgian wine especially Isabella is also lovely.
    I think "National Drink Day" is every day here.

    Something jumped out at me from that video...it was the Ansell's beer pump. For one thing, that dates it a bit and it also tells me that UB40 made the video in their home city. Ansell's was an old Birmingham brewery.

    I had completely forgotten Ansell's beer Tom, that also reminded me of Davenport's another Birmingham brewery, with beer at home service, my father had a case delivered weekly.

    I always preferred Banks's, the Wolverhampton beer, whenever I ventured to the West Midlands. Another brewery in Birmingham was M & B, whose beer I found horrible, with the sole exception of their Highgate Mild, which was brewed in Walsall.
