    My go-to’s:

    Dry red Spanish Wine
    Jameson whiskey
    Dark, dark beers

    And these cocktails:

    Amaretto sour
    One Step Closer to Getting it Together
    (a lovely local concoction of lavender liqueur, st. germaine, chrysanthemum bitters, and a splash of lime)
    Bourbon and Honey
    (Four Roses Bourbon , orange blossom honey and lemon, garnished with fresh thyme)

    What’s your pleasure?

    I love the taste of lots of drinks but don’t tolerate alcohol very well.

    Dry white wine ( the mere sniff of a cheap one gives me a headache) and lager.

    Right now?
    Beer in the morning to fix this hangover.

    I used to try coffee...or water...or food etc etc.
    The best hangover medicine is...a few drinks in the morning 😉

    Nothing starts a great weekend like a freshly ground espresso. Lavazza e' il migliore!

    Of course it is but goad's job is to correct my spelling mistakes! 😛

    Do you give them to people who need them?

    I believe I once had around 200 plus.

    I do give them out actually...a lot in fact.
    I give out way more than I use.
    For every free coffee card I use I give ten away...on average.
    I receive a lot of them so it's no big deal to give away a bunch.

    Did you know that those coffee cards are not just for coffee?
    A coffee is almost 2 dollars but those coffee cards can get you other stuff...
    Like a cappuccino 🤗...$3.50+

    What’s your pleasure?
    Dry red wine (any nationality)
    "Tasty" beer (usually non North American though some micro brewery's are acceptable)
    Occasionally a "good" Scotch on a rock
    " a Vodka Martini
    " a shot of a "good" Tequila

    Good on you, well done. It is a good feeling to give isn't it.

    Yes you can also get upgrades. I believe all our cards here are for mediums but for a small fee you can have it up graded to large or X-large. Can also get lattes with them. I believe all the hot beverages.

    I will usually give them to those I feel need them. If they want change for a coffee I will as a rule give them at least one, depending on their story and if I believe them. Sometimes I will give them more than one card. I usually have between 10-20 on me.

    It may not be a big deal to you or I to give them away but it means a lot to the ones receiving, as you can see it in their eyes and the big smile on their faces.

    I wouldn't think if they had jobs they wouldn't need them. Then again I don't know what theses delivery company drivers would make. Still the gesture is what counts.

    Most days I get through about three cups of English (or Irish) breakfast tea.

    I don't bother with anything having alcohol unless the aim is to get drunk. Used to do that every weekend, but nowadays only maybe three times a year, if that. Generally alcohol makes me feel lousy, even in moderate quantities.
