Prohibited

Captain Picard was into Earl Grey tea; mention the Dude and we think: White Russians. What’s your signature beverage — and how did it achieve that status?

I’m a Mediterranean. So my logic pick would be preferably wine. It goes with all kind of meals. We have delicious varieties and it’s affordable. The same Bible says is healthy  taken with moderation. St. Paul wrote to Timothy: “No longer drink water exclusively, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments.” But I don’t have Timothy’s ailments. Mine prohibits me to consume alcohol, so I can’t taste even a little glass of wine. Now I have to console myself with a coke or just cold water in hot days and hot chocolate in cold days.

Pick Your Potion.
