Frank aka PCGuyIV is our host for Truthful Tuesday.
This week’s question is a bit of a repeat, but it’s more focused on beverages than food in general. As I was perusing my Facebook memories, I ran across a meme that I had shared a few years ago that read, “It’s that time of year when people will say it’s too hot for coffee. These people do not understand coffee.” With that in mind…
Whether it’s coffee, tea, cocoa, cider, or whatever, do you reserve warm beverages for cold weather, or do you drink them all year round?I am a teapot. Winter or Summer, I cannot start my day without that first morning cuppa.
I take it with milk and no sugar, and have my own mug with Her Ladyship on the side, Hubby’s idea of a joke.
Throughout the day, every day, I will have at least six cups of tea. I like the occasional coffee and latte is my drink of choice should we be out, as I find tea can be a bit stewed and the milk often used is full fat which I find hard to tolerate.
As a child, winter bedtimes would see us with ovaltine, horlicks, or hot chocolate, very rarely cocoa.
However, on a really hot day, nothing goes down better than a half of lager!
I am not a drinker, but I remember one day was a scorcher and I downed that first half in record time, then savoured the second glass. I felt there was steam coming out of my ears.
On honeymoon in Amsterdam (May 1991), I was introduced to Dutch beer and Hubby warned me that it was a lot stronger than the stuff we got in the UK.
The first glass slid down like nectar. The second shortly followed and Hubby looked at me quizzically. The third saw me slid off my bar stool and the bartender asking if I was OK. I replied in the affirmative and asked him to just throw me the peanuts.
