Have got sparkling and soda water in the fridge.Slice of lime and a splash of angostura bitters,very refreshing.Mind you couldnt believe the price of angostura bitters.$22 a bottle.

Indeed you are not as short as expected. No bloody wine though. And you've seen first hand the calibre of fellow guests........Bernie nearly had to use his military training on a geriatric hoodlum

Perhaps he should hire you as a bodyguard - that'd help pay the rent

Men - How much do you drink a week?
Woman - How much does your man drink a week?

My husband is spending on average $100 a week - about 48 bottles plus a couple of bar visits. I think its excessive, he disagrees.
Brew your own mate, slash $100 down to $33 a week then you can drink 3 times as much. Always thinking

As a recovering alcoholic, I can only say that it's a problem if you can't do without it - even if you only drink in the evenings - and also if you're drinking to make yourself feel better about your life.:
It would be hard to go without a good red (or white).
