couple of bottles of Alvarinho, which we got in place of our usual Albarino from the wine merchant, chiller to perfection
Is the Alvarinho Portuguese rather than Spanish?

Love wine from Portugal, sadly not easily available here.

Portas 6 is a super red, think some wine shops stock it.

Been experimenting with cocktails during the hot weather. Decided to make a WooWoo (vodka, peach schnapps and cranberry juice). Then decided to up the ante and make a WooWoo Sunrise.....

Have now discovered that a WooWoo made with the addition of orange juice and then mixed 50/50 with lemonade and served over ice is the perfect refreshing drink for a hot day in the garden.

My teetotalling has ended for a couple of days anyway.
Got a 12 pack of Estrella Damm from Tesco. Drink it on hols usually and first time I've had it here in UK, very nice, I think it's imported (rather than brewed here under licence) - good flavour imo.
