Default What are you drinking right now?

I'm relaxing with a bottle of Pokka Ice Mango Tea; most refreshing.

Not exactly this moment but every night I drink:

Daily: Earl Grey tea, loose leaf
Daily: Pellegrino w/ lemon/lime juice
Alternating Days: Wine (1 oz), Italian red or Chilean white

Weekend mornings: Lavazza Gran Aroma coffee

Man, I sound like a pretentious git!

Had enough Italian red (Valpolicella Ripasso); using leftover for braising beef ribs, yum!!!

Changed over to a French red (Les Dauphins Cote du Rhone 2018) last night.

Also ready to switch white wine as well; can't remember what it is though...

Had a great red Italian wine, Amarone della Valpolicella while watching Lars Von Trier's The House That Jack Built. Amarone (made from grapes air dried for ~100 days called Appassimento) tasted a lot like ice wine without the sugar. Makes sense since ice wine is made from vine dried grapes + harvested ~-10C. Chocolatey & plummy with a touch of sweetness. So far, this is my favourite red wine.

Also made a quart of Cola syrup from scratch with oranges, lemon, lime, spices, sugar, etc. Surprisingly close to the real thing and I can control the amount of sugar!

Yerba mate is a type of tea made from leaves of a holly tree found in the South American rainforest. This tea can boost energy, protect against infections, lower blood sugar, and lower the risk of heart disease.

Yerba mate is often described as a beverage with the energy kick of coffee, the smooth flavor of traditional tea, the healing components of herbal tea and the feel-good factor of chocolate. In fact, the yerba mate plant contains caffeine, theophylline and theobromine, the stimulants also found in coffee, tea and chocolate.

Thank you for the info. Think I'll give it a go!

I'd have a little red wine with lunch, but I'll settle for some lemonade.

Been having Amarone for couple of wks now it's close to being finished; I only drink about an ounce per serving.

Next in line is 2010 red Bordeaux (really inexpensive one) and a 2018 white Borgogne (also inexpensive).

Curious how these wines from the most famous French wine regions will taste and if I'll even be able to tell the difference. If I can, great! If I cant' I'll save $$$ = also great!

Bordeaux and Borgogne/Burgundy region wines do taste different but I absolutely would not be able to tell the difference in a blind test as of today.

2010 Bordeaux flavour is not as aggressive, very tannic (feels like putting a teaspoon of dry tea on your tongue), and gentle in fruit flavours. For the price, so far I prefer Amarone that was a bit sweeter and more fruit.

Also got 2015 Sauternes yesterday. It's a sweet desert wine also from Bordeaux region made using 'noble rot' white grapes. Almost no aroma out of the fridge but it certainly improved over time. Sauternes is supposed to be less sweet than ice wine but it was still very sweet. Very high in fruit flavour.
