It is fair to say that the range of alcoholic drinks has increased a great deal since I first started drinking (more years ago than I care to admit!). In my day it was beer, cider or spirits and then when I became a bit more sophisticated there was wine. Today there is a vast array of different types of drinks available – many of them I must admit I wouldn’t dream of buying.
This evening for example my son opened a bottle of strawberry flavoured pear cider that was left over from his New Years party. It smelt sweet and sickly and looked very much like my own glass of Crabbies raspberry drink with a hint of ginger (which is actually lovely!).
