Butterscotch schnapps and peach juice. Although, it's pretty difficult to find peach juice in England. sad

Anyway, for something you can get in England, Malibu and Pineapple, topped with lemonade (or as I call it, cheats Pina Colada)

Ohoo, very tempted by a mojito now. Thanks all!

Nothing too sugary, You'll feel great at first but you'll crash and be at home and asleep by 10.

Something with fruit juice in it, Or ask a few friends to pitch in for a nice bottle of Cava/Prosecco. Somthing cold and bubbly!

Tequila and lime.

Ameretto and coke

cjbartlett Sat 13-Aug-11 19:02:01

Gin and tonic

Respect though! That is one hell of a day!

Peanut, try Lidl or Aldi for peach juice. Think they import it from Germany. At a push Waitrose do a peach pulp thing (sure it would taste fine with alcohol in)

Gastonladybird Sat 13-Aug-11 19:02:45

Rum and coke

Carrotsandcelery Sat 13-Aug-11 19:03:20

HowlingBitch you are probably right - I just keep a steady flow going until bedtime and then sleep off the crash. grin

seasidesister Sat 13-Aug-11 19:05:25

Diamond White should do it.

DontCallMePeanut Sat 13-Aug-11 19:06:14

Ooh, thanks for the heads up, Karma. No waitrose nearby, so will try Lidl. I really should have brought some back from Cyprus this year.

Sidecar - equal parts brandy, triple sec and lime juice. Basically a brandy margarita. Served short over ice, lots of vitamin c, om nom nom...

cocoachannel Sat 13-Aug-11 19:08:12

I need a mojito now.

Anyone know anywhere in SW London that delivers them grin wine!?

lubeybooby Sat 13-Aug-11 19:08:39

Any spirit with diet coke keeps me going - wine or beer flattens me

scottishmummy Sat 13-Aug-11 19:21:41

WorzselMummage Sat 13-Aug-11 19:24:15
