    no point in buying good whisky like a malt if your gonna blaspheme into it with ginger ale . any whisky within reason will do for that. Maybe a nice vodka like ciroc its drinkable straight or with a mixerand wont give you a sore head.

    I drink beer and wine but recently anything with any amount of fizz in it affects my digestive system adversely. Does anyone know if it is possible to get flat (still?) bottled beer in the shops - I rarely visit pubs these days. At the moment I'm restricting myself to wine but would like a bit of variety in my boozing. Cheers.

    Belhaven are doing a grapefruit IPA at M&S, lovely. They chop and throw in whole grapefruits to the brew.
