i love a drink but am trying to get a bit healthier. i've cut out booze on a monday and tuesday night and there are benefits to my mood, but tonight it's thursday and am enjoying a bottle of wine which is slapping me across the face with this question - 'why aren't there any non alcoholic drinks with any depth of flavour or interest?'

is it the slow processes involved in making wine and whisky that give it a depth of flavour, or is it just the variety of wines, whiskies, gins and beers that keep your interest? fuck knows but until they make a non-alcoholic drink that's as stimulatin on the palate then i'm never going to be as healthy as i could be.

...and if they ever could make such an interesting drink then there's an absolute fortune to be made.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.

My drink of choice to try and cope with driving: tonic with a dash of bitters. Ice.




Otherwise there's water, I suppose OH WHAT'S THE FUCKING POINT OF WATER etc...

I know I drink too often but I don't drive for various reasons. The older I get, the less I worry about the effects. Is that just me or is anyone else reaching that point where they just don't really seem bothered and they'd rather sample a broad range of interesting foods and drinks and to hell with the consequences (within reason)?

Yeah. I often see things saying 'x drinks a week will take 47 minutes off your life' and think, 'So fucking what?' In principle I'm just not bothered about when I die. I guess that, counter to this, my major concern is that I'd prefer to die in good health if that makes sense. So if, say, there's a clear evidential link between a certain food or drink and dementia I would probably give that serious thought.

Tried an 'authentic' Jamaican curry goat recipe on the weekend. After marinading the meat and browning it off, it said slice a scotch bonnet in two, de-seed it, lob it in for an hour or two to simmer but take it out before serving.

Went to fish the fucker out after a couple of hours but it had pretty much dissolved altogether, leaving so much heat that it completely masked the flavour. I ended up sieving the meat and veg out and rebuilding another sauce. Won't be using one of those twats again anytime soon.

Yeah, or just use half a bonnet next time - obviously taking into consideration Blackwhites very relevant post above.

Jamaican lady I used to work with pickled them, lovely stuff. And when you've finished the jar, fish and chips are never the same again (your ring either).

Bought 30 day aged Aberdeen Angus rump steaks from Aldi because they were £3.29 and we thought ‘Fuck it, why not?’

Now, Mrs O can properly season and cook a steak, but these just didn’t have any flavour at all. I’m mystified / slightly scared to know how it’s possible to rear a cow so it doesn’t taste of anything?

On the flip side of this, it’s only fair to point out that Aldi £4.30 Claret is genuinely not at all bad.

So summer cold, douse it up with whiskey and lemonade says I. Now I'm not a whiskey drinker so I bought the cheapest. Tasted just like TCP. Horrible

Question is: they had glenlivet special reserve on offer. Would that have been any better/more palatable to a non connesseir like myself?

I usually get given at least one bottle of bell's or some other nasty shit a year and dose with that. No need for the smoky Islay edges at all, vodka would be just as effective... It's only palliative after all.

I am approaching tether’s end with the whole mega-citrussy IPA thing.

Beer needs to taste of beer.

Bourbon, drink something from a nation that knows what they are doing, not them defeated twats.

Lidl steak is much better. Not had the rump, mind.
