OK the topic link is tenuous but I am having real problems drinking in pubs

Mainly because I don't drink alcohol

But neither do I drink coke/OJ/fruit juices

I don't like lemonade out of the tap thingie/J2O

& mainly I like sweet drinks (at home I like ribena or Welshs Grape & peach juice)

So can you suggest something I could drink?

I like tonic water with a slice of lemon.

soda and lime

KatyMac Thu 16-Oct-08 22:41:43

Not nearly sweet enough

I don't do water - it makes me pass out

blackcurrent?

LadyLaGore Thu 16-Oct-08 22:42:38

they have blackcurrent cordial in pubs. for rum and black. ask for rum and black without the rum

xpost (we must be right)

KatyMac Thu 16-Oct-08 22:43:19

No because they generally buy cheap(er) squash & that tend to have artificial sweetners in (ribena doesn't)

Blackcurrant cordial and tap water. (THey will hate you as they can't charge you more than about 25p for it but are legally obliged to serve you). You could also try blackcurrant and soda/sparkling water. And some pubs still have bottles of lime cordial/orange squash/peppermint cordial behind the bar, you could try one of those.

In the pub where I work we have proper squash/blackcurrant and lime cordials smile

KatyMac Thu 16-Oct-08 22:47:16

I know

I have IBS, low blood pressure & a sweet tooth

notsoseriousanymore Thu 16-Oct-08 22:48:15

I'd go for soda and black

COsts 20p, is sweet and sounds cool..

what more can a girl want!!

LadyLaGore Thu 16-Oct-08 22:54:02

a packet of opal fruits and a glass of water?? smile

ScareyBitchFeast Thu 16-Oct-08 22:54:53

crisps and lemonade? grin

KatyMac Thu 16-Oct-08 22:55:01

No - no water at all....

I'm not being intentionally awkward - it comes naturally

Habbibu Thu 16-Oct-08 22:56:02

Lemonade and lime - my mum's favourite, and v. nice. Fresh orange and lemonade also nice. And look at virgin cocktails in cocktails list.

hunkermunker Thu 16-Oct-08 22:56:55

Lemonade and lime.

Glass of hot water and a sachet of sugar or three.

KatyMac Thu 16-Oct-08 23:01:13

That's how I have my tea-for all intents & purposes

It is getting boring - I tried that purple J2O & it was crap
