Thanks, OKD. I might try one of those sambuca recipes before the bottle runs out.

I think it was fairly cheap whiskey I got a whiff of. Aged whiskey isn't bad. Once it gets to forty or so!

Speaking of girly Dutch liqueurs, has anyone tried Vok's Parfait Amor? The stuff is bright purple and tastes a bit like turkish delight. It's like drinking sugary perfume!

It sounds terrible and probably tastes even worse.That liquid can repulse you from alcohol for good.Just a thought of it make me sick.They could use it as a part of anti alcohol trearment.

By the way,Susan ,do you still have your original English accent, after all those years in Austalia?

Yes, I still have a slight Midlands accent. It's quite obvious to Australians. On the other hand, when I'm in England people think I sound Australian.

I'll tell you something I can't drink, and that's Stone's Green Ginger Wine. Got sick on that at a party when I was a teenager.

Ah yes,a teenage (drinking)parties.lol Those prescious, innocent piggeries.We would listen to Abba, Bay City Rollers,Sweet,Kiss,Smokie and drink cherry brandy with vermouth(extra dry or white ).What a piglets we were.We 've been throwing our guts up.It was hilarious.lol I still remember the taste of my vomit after I had too much of vermouth and got sick on that on new year's eve 1976.The girls were even worse than us boys.I changed my drinking habits and music interests later, when I turned 15.


Sorry ,I know nothing about Stone's Green Ginger Wine.


Midlands- you must be of Angle origin.You don't use a broad A-that much I know.Do you have a fond memories of your old country and early childhood?As for accents,George Bernard Shaw’s professor Henry Higgins couldn't help me.I could easily be mistaken for a freakin' Russian.

Well, back in my drinking days (in which I would still be living if I had any friends who would join me in a drink) I enjoyed a good old shot of tequila...or 2 or 3 or 4...heheh. It was my preferred drink as my only purpose to drinking is to get drunk, and I would find if I drank a normal drink such as wine *gag* or beer *further gags* I would be in the toilet all night (not vomiting by the way, just normal toilet usage) and it also takes so disgusting to me I would never be able to drink enough to actually get drunk.

Tequila though was easy. One quick swallow, some salt and lemon if you so choose, and a nice warm quick feeling of tipsiness. And no toilet-going because it's only a small amount of liquid. Also if it's cold, it warms you up. Ah, that familiar feeling of hot burning going down your throat and into your chest!

These days however, it's hot chocolates, coke and juice for this old biddy.

And Okeedoe, you callin' me a nerd?? lol

That is not true,of course.You are a cool chick with a sharp and a bit eccentric sense of humor.

Stone's is easy to describe. It's hot and gingery, syrupy, and very sweet. Yuk!

I used to drink a lot of tequila, but it's too expensive these days. I hated Australian beer until I moved to Melbourne, then I got a taste for VB (Victoria Bitter) because that's what the local cartoonists drank. I still prefer ale to lager, though

Midlands people have Danish ancestors, OKD, and that's where some of the accent comes from. The central and eastern parts of what is now England were part of the Kingdom of Denmark during the Ninth Century.

I like Nature brand mountain spring water.
You can get it for free if you climb the right hill or mountain.
Right mountains can be found in many parts of the world.

Well, we're got a lot of it here! Most of it's a bit sulphurous, but the spring water at Wombat Flat has just the right kind of bite to the taste.
