Artichoke wine

Discussion in 'Personal' started by Lilyofthefield, Jun 22, 2011.

  1. Jesus H Christ. Just went to my neighbour's to borrow some eggs and she said "My artichoke wine is ready! We've just opened a bottle - you must try some!"
    Oooh great, bullseye, bonus, how kind, lucky old me I thought. Leaving aside the fact that it resembled in flavour some cheap gin watered down with paraffin, I had one glass ("Delicious!") and am now so ****** I don't think i can get in the car to pick my friend up for Zumba. And in case you're thinking "She's not so bad - the typing's OK" I have had to go back and change about 20 things.
    Artichoke wine? ***???

    It seems a great use for artichokes to me. They are bloody pointless over-rated things.

    I always enjoyed Body Jam a lot more after a couple of sneaky G&Ts in the pub next door to the leisure centre. Bad, bad manny! [​IMG]
    I hasten to add that I did walk to and from the class!

    It's when I hear such thing as the words "Artichoke wine" that I really glad that I don't drink. Sounds horrific.
  7. Have just asked Mr L to take us. He was severely under-impressed.

    Yer, but I bet you had great hip action. [​IMG]
  12. I just hope that wasn't Jerusalem artichoke wine.... apparently that veg acts somewhat powerfully on the innards... though might aid a swift getaway if a nosey policeman asks you to roll down your window...
    But be thoughtful towards your passenger, and pop a peg in the glovebox...
  13. I don't drive when I feel plastered! It was the inside bits of globe artichokes.

    Sounds like Tom from "The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin"
