    Cherry wine. I still keep a few of the small bottles around for nostalgia moments...

    Probably a "snowball" as well although my gran use to make as our new year bottle which was rasberry cordial for the girls and ginger cordial for us boys. First proper pub drink was a black and tan of which I was a regular partaker in them far gone days. Don't know if I would fancy one now? certainly not the 9or 10 I would consume every week-end nite.
    The eyes have it!

    Mine was advocaat and lemonade although only at new year parties or my grans at Xmas. You still get snowballs now in little green bottles from Morrisons in packs of 4. I was allowed a sip of my dads lager and used to pretend I loved it just to make me seem 'grown up' but in reality I thought it tasted like wee......No, I haven't tasted wee but I'm sure it must be similar lol My dad made dozens of bottles of this ginger wine stuff every Xmas, it was called yulade (sp?) and we had to drink bucket loads of the stuff. He still makes it now!

    My parents used to make that every winter too, drank gallons of the stuff.
    The only thing to look forward to is the past

    The absolutely foul concoction known as Thunderbird wine. Came in two varieties, red label and blue label. Red was stronger, but both made you sick pretty quickly. They were like drinking pure sugar laced with fermented pears.

    I was another Babycham girl. Used to get given a glass on holidays in the days when pubs had a family beer garden. Made me feel very grown-up and sophisticated
