AIBU to think I'm literally on my way to alcoholism?

I'm not a big drinker, I have a night out (as in very drunk) once every 6 weeks, in between I can count on one hand the units I have. The reason I don't drink much is I can't find a drink I enjoy, so the rare times I go out I drink to get drunk, not because I enjoy the taste.

Tonight has been a revolution... RHUBARB GIN WITH GINGER ALE, holy fuck is this the best thing I've ever tasted?!

RHUBARB AND GIN is the future, bye bye sobriety!

(My pals are out for a fag so I'm the sad case on her own pretending to do
Important stuff on her phone right now)

I hate both rhubarb (stomach pumped as a kid eating the leaves LOL)and Gin. But OMG a rhubarb gin fizz is one of the best things I have ever tasted!

I came on to helpfully tell you how we handled alcoholism in our family but it looks like a false alarm.

RitaMills Fri 12-May-17 21:09:57

JennyOnAPlate I don't have the vocabulary to describe how good this is gin

I am not overly fond of rhubarb, but OMG Rhucello is utterly gorgeous.

I live very near the rhubarb triangle and can buy this locally.

You may have just influenced me.
I hate Rhubarb.
You better be right OP.

Durhamdurham sorry but that made me laugh 😂

RitaMills Fri 12-May-17 21:21:18

Mrsknackered send leftover to me and I'll be happy to reimburse you!

I love rhubarb and I love gin. Why have I never tried this?

Hefzi Fri 12-May-17 21:24:17

I make my own rhubarb gin (well, I don't as I don't have a distillery, but you know what I mean) and it is the drink of the gods. However, why ruin it with ginger ale? Put a measure in your Prosecco grin

I love rhubarb. I can tolerate gin... I wonder how I'd feel about rhubarb gin. Interesting. Maybe I'll try it after DD is born (and not nursing anymore).
