Quote: Slow Jo wrote in post #45My mom had a small sherry twice sometimes but that was her limit self inflicted .dad always had a bottle of tarragona port that was it in our house ,but we always had a good family christmas,if only we could go back to being like that now.
well jo we must remember that times were different back in the day...although we did not have a lot we were always grateful for what we were given...ive always tried to bring my 4 children up with the belief that its not always the amount that is spent on christmas pressies its the thought that counts...but yes i wouldnt mind travelling back in time to savour the christmas.s past...oh ive just remembered that our nan used to make her own christmas puds...she steamed them in the brew house..
Evening Lynne When I was a Barman I must have made Thousands of Snowballs. (Not the bottled sort) A drop of Lime cordial, A measure of Advocaat top up with lemonade, add a Marachino Cherry. up to the sixites and seventies there were very few drinks for the ladies, we had of course Babycham, Cherry B, Wicked Lady, in the beers we had Light ale, M&B Export, Mackeson, Guinness (yes the older ladies drank Guinness). There was of course the spirits with the usual mixers and Martini/Cinzano etc. In our pub we sold very little wines in those days. The closest most people got to a Cocktail was a Shandy.
