Aaaaaaah, that's fair. You can get other tonics, but if you've found something that works for you as a mixer, may as well use it. For me, I actually like tonic water: it's not quite as cloying as other soft drinks. See bakewell vodka dilemma above.

The alternative is trying normal tonic with sloe gin or something, which is sweet and delicious itself.

A gin and tonic is my go-to, but I'm not a fan of either gin or tonic water on their own.
I will say, generally the choice of gin has a much bigger impact on the flavour than the choice of tonic.

THE TRIFECTA

An Asahi, a Kirin and a Sapporo at the summer festival with Rob (also some peach chu-hi)

Highight of the night was when a group of girls all smiled and waved and said hi to me and ignored rob and he got insecure about it ad spent the rest of the night pointing out girls who looked at him and exes and stuff, but i genuinely didn't even notice they paid any more attention to me than him

What is this 'chu-hi' you speak of? It's peach-flavoured, and therefore it automatically sounds like it might taste nice to me.

As for me, I've actually started to use the subscription to the Wine Society I got as a present. Last week I got my first big box of wine, and yesterday we had our first bottle of it!

It was rubbish. Sulk

I wouldn't have expected much from a wine subscription service, to be fair!

Let us know how you get on with The Wine Society please. I've been thinking about using them for a while - they've got some very decent Riojas on their website for better prices than I'm paying for them in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

I'll come back with reports! My parents use them all the time with glowing praise, but they can afford better bottles than I can. Thus far we've got one modest failure and one modest success out of one of their cheapest boxes. Bear in mind that you're paying for the wine as well as for the subs.
