Water. With my supper, at 11:30 PM. Because that's when I have time to eat, and I have to get up in six and a half hours to get ready go back to work.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Water as well, but because of what I drank last night... :drinking:

Ice water, with a spash of concord grape juice (just enough for a little flavor, but not sweetness).

Carrot Buttermilk: Mix 3-4 parts homemade buttermilk (shaken) to 1 part Carrot Juice (shaken) ... shake together in a small jar, pour and serve.

It's actually quite good ... the sweetness of the carrot balances out the tang and phenols of the buttermilk, and also rounds out the nutritional value.

Something I came up with a few years ago, but which I'm sure already existed long before I'd thought of it.

Warm milk with clover honey mixed in. Tastes great, and a great substitue for the plain warm milk we grew up with :drinking:

A tiny pinch of salt helps balance the honey.

Just made a 1/2 gal pitcher of gunpowder green tea ... brew loose for 3 mins at 180F, strain, then paper filter for clarity.

Drinking it plain ... the only way to properly enjoy it (a little honey and lemon is a distant second).

Damn fine wine with a curry.

Followed by Jacob's Creek Shiraz.

Goes very well with itself. I intend to find out.



Considering you fancy riesling, and judging by your penchant for an Australian shiraz, you might consider trying some Australian riesling also. The best shiraz growing areas in Australia, noteably central-west Victoria, the Barossa Valley in South Australia and the ACT (Canberra) also double as the preferred growing regions for Australia's finest riesling. There are myriads of excellent shiraz and riesling labels produced from these three locations. I can recommend a fine aromatic Pewsey Vale Riesling (Clare Valley) or Bests Shiraz from Great Western (central west Victoria). It is interesting that some of the oldest and also genetically diverse shiraz is located in Great Western, Victoria - one of few areas on the planet that missed the global phylloxera outbreak of the late 19th Century which devastated most European vineyards. For example, if you ever find a St Ethels Shiraz produced by Grampians Estate (Great Western), buy it. Otherwise, quaff down any southern states riesling and enjoy.
