Ode to G&T

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Dousing myself in G&T,
Knocks off the edges helps me see,
A light where darkness used to be.

I know I’m crazy, made mistakes,
Don’t know that I’ve got what to takes,
To battle on with my disease,
And be the girl I want to be.

I want to laugh,
I want to live.
I hate to take,
I want to give

And be the virgin, not the whore,
The one who’s always wanting more,
The one who takes the hilly climb,
The one who says she’s feeling fine.
The one that knows how things should be,
and still gives up so easily.

The crux of this, as you can see,
Don’t take my fucking G&T!

    Blackwoods makes a good G&T.

    Of most things, Bombay will do nicely too, although that doesnt quite have the delicate flavours of either the Hendrinks or the Blackwoods. Its the Shetland botanicals in the Blackwoods you see, thats what makes it stand out. Blackwoods do a very passable vodka as well.

    I really like the juniper heavy ones, so Bombay and Plymouth Navy Strength suit my tastebuds. Haven't tried the Blackwoods one, must do as it comes so highly recommended...

    The only Plymouth I've ever had was like paint thinner. The Blackwoods one is definitely worth finding, and given the quality really isnt very pricey.

    yep, don't like the normal Plymouth one, the other one is much better.
