Taa-Daahh!!! A new thread... This one is to find out what you're drinking.

If it's alcoholic, tell us what bottle of wine, beer, spirit you're consuming. If it's tea or coffee, tell us the blend, brand, strength... And if it's decaf or not!!

So... I'll go first. Tonight I'm on red wine: a Cotes Du Rhone 2006 (Syrah and Grenache) and it's lovely. Only half a bottle though.

A nice mug of PG Tips as made by Lord Charlie - a darned fine brew it is too.

Well last night it was G&Ts with flat tonic water followed by a bottle of crappy Rioja in a pub in Notting Hill. This morning, I'm hoping my other half is about to make me a cup of tea (Twinings Assam) before we head up to the market at the Alma.

well, as MrZ and I were enjoying a weekend lunch at Mediterranea (drinking a bit of white wine, then a cappucino with a fine ricotta orange tart) we looked out the window to see Gekko and ChrissyB striding by! Didn't get a chance to wave and catch their eye then, but can do it now, so Hello neighbours!

Quite a few bottles of St Austell's Tribute today. Delightfully aromatic ale and the perfect replacement for lager on a hot day...

Hi Ziwa - it was a bit of a VN spotting day in the triangle yesterday as we spied Jamesl. I think the market brought everyone out!

We ended up in Domali for lunch - their specials are very good at the moment. As this is a drinks thread, I guess I should say that I had the forest fruit smoothie, a carrot and orange juice and a mint tea.
