I think yosser may have had a tipple too many by starting two posts on the same subject! ;) :D

Jack Daniels and Coke.

I do like cider but it seems the older I get, the more it effects me and these days after 2 pints of cider I start talking more rubbish than usual and generally forget having had these rubbish conversations. This seems like a bad thing so I tend to avoid it :D

Sheridans and Baileys. I love sweet, creamy liquers. I don't really drink at all but I'm starting to get into red wine. I really appreciate Californian reds and whites, actually. I just can't drink at all...I'm useless. http://users.pandora.be/eforum/emoticons4u/sad/1011.gif

LOL:D :beer:

I was wondering how long it would take before someone realised that I had posted the same thread twice, but I had miss-spelt the first one and I couldn't delete it....

I asked Brigie to delete it for me, but I guess she's either out feedin the shite hawks, or gone shopping....Bloody women!

Bring out the Vodka:eek: then my spellin will surely go up shit creek.

Definitely Guinness - and for dessert a nice Scotch

It's either a Guiness or a Newcastle Brown for me. Fortunately, both are availible on this side of the Atlantic.

Found myself drinking more Newkey Broon last weekend over here, than Imanaged in 30 odd years in the UK. ( 2 bottles )

Why don't they make a decent Zider in the US ? No wonder we got rid of the colonies 220 years ago

I went to a lunchtime leaving do at work the other day, and they had 'cider'. Well, actually they had sparkling apple juice that claimed to be cider on the label. I almost spat it onto the floor!

:mad:

Youngs Special
Watneys Red Barrel

One word answer to your question: Prohibition.

I think that's the main reason why the US has odd laws about drinking and alcholic bevvies.

A daily glass, or two, or three ...... of Strongbow cider, or failing that Dry Blackthorn.... made sure I had lots and lots while in England recently - beginning to miss it already though :beer:
