Fed up of vodka and tonic? No, nor are we. There’s every good reason for this drink’s huge popularity on a summer evening when you’re out socialising with friends and you want something bright and drinkable. Vodka doesn’t have a lot of taste when you drink it neat, which means that getting creative with your additions is going to make all the difference.
There are a number of different types of white wine on the market but perhaps the most popular is dry white wine and sweet white wine. Before we go any further, it’s worth asking whether most of us actually even know what a dry white wine is - what it tastes like, and where it comes from. Let’s run through a few general points to get you started.
People have all kinds of reasons for choosing the wines they do. Perhaps you sampled a memorable glass on a foreign holiday and prefer stick to that grape or wine-growing district forevermore.

But if you’re a true lover of red wine, whether English red wine or other red wine varieties, it’s worth properly understanding the differences so that you know what you’re drinking.

Different flavoured infusions are all the rage, and let’s face it, what could be more rewarding than playing around with the basic types of gin to make something a little more special that is all your own work. So here are some imaginative ideas to get you started.
There’s nothing quite like vodka to remind us of the best in classic alcoholic tipples. Vodka is a staple of great socialising, so most of us think we know everything there is to know about Vodka.
When we think of countries that produce real high quality white wine, we usually think of countries like France, Italy, Australia and South Africa. It’s rare that England will spring to mind.
When it comes to high quality craft ales, there aren’t many that can rival a good honest IPA. Although some may consider the IPA or ‘Indian Pale Ale’ to be an acquired taste, it’s fair to say that its strong hoppy flavour sets this style of alcoholic beverage apart from many others on the market.
