Fave Friday

Five Favourite Drinks

1. Diet Coke. I like it far too much. I haven't been sleeping well this week and last night it finally clicked that I'd given up diet coke in the evenings because it stopped me sleeping - and then mysteriously forgot this little nuggest of info and started again. So I am limiting myself. But I especially like it out of a cup, a la fast food joint.

2. Gin. I like Hendricks, for a preference, and Gordons. But I'll drink any gin, really. I like it with soda and a lime wedge, to bring out the gin flavour. Gin is my go-to drink when I've got a long night ahead and don't want to get too drunk.

3. Lemon squash. Current favourite soft drink. I like how they're double concentrate now, so the bottle is smaller.

4. Grapefruit juice. It's a bit heavy on its own, though, so I mix it half and half with sparkling water. Grapefruit is one of my favourite smells/tastes.

5. Chenin blanc. I like white wine that isn't not Chardonnay, really. I like red wine, too, but I am in a white wine phase. I have to be careful, though, because I often find that I've drunk too much two glasses after it's too late.

Whatever it is I'm drinking though, it has to be cold. Coffee is the only exception - and I even like that iced.
