That looks like everything I ever wanted in one bottle!
Because I had a long, very big & rich lunch, I am now "enjoying" a cup of matcha green tea. This sh*t is supposed to be good for you. Hope it's true, as it's not something I can imagine anyone drinking for its taste.

Oh I like beer me
I love a nice refreshing (warm) pint of badger beer when we visit Devon. Or Green King Abbot Ale is good. Here in the Midlands I tend to sample the 'guest beers' from small local breweries if I visit a pub...a fairly rare occurrence these days unfortunately. I do drink lager in the hot weather..I used to drink Budweiser (bottle not cans) but these days I drink San Miguel or Kingfisher lager..again in bottles rather than cans.
The salted liquorice vodka was initially gorgeous, with an explosion of tipsy liquorice flavour in my mouth...but the salty aftertaste isnt very nice. I'd rather have an absinthe.
I'm not a beer fan, but I utterly loathe "soft drinks" (not because they are alcohol-free but because they are loaded with teeth-rotting sugar). They give me at least as bad a headache as overindulging in wine.
today i drank some wine, for once, even though i didn't have guests nor was visiting anyone - had made a dish for which i needed wine, and though i bought the only small bottle available, there was some leftover. it was a merlot and tasted nice and gave me a chance to post in this thread.
Could only happen near Seattle department: I've got a mixture of Ethiopian coffees — about 80% medium-roasted Yrgecheffe and about 20% Ethiopian Haarar in a dark roast — that I threw together and brewed as a pour-over cup. I've been playing with the mixtures and think I've nailed it. The Yrgecheffe is floral and redolant of blueberries, and the Haarar adds caramal and cocoa notes. Both varieties have *teeny* little beans.
This will obviously mean almost nothing to non coffee snobs.
It's funny; packages of Ethiopian coffee are on the shelves of all of the supermarkets here, along with Cuban, Guatemalan, Costa Rican, Colombian, Vietnamese, Ivorian, etc. But since I am not a coffee drinker, I have to confess that they all taste basically the same to me, even though I can think from time to time "this is really good" or "I don't want any more of this" when it crosses my lips. But I do marvel at the idea that a really ordinary supermarket such as the ones in my neighbourhood can propose up to 30 different kinds of coffee. That would validate the idea that there really are people who know the difference (or who have been deluded into thinking they can). I just know arabica vs. robusta.
