For a long time I didn’t know that ginger beer is non-alcoholic.
As a child, my fantasy was to be a part of the Famous Five and their picnics where they had cream buns, hot scones, raspberry pops, jam tarts and glupped ginger beer to beat the heat. I always wondered how they let 10 yr olds drink beer 🙂
A few years back I was thrilled to see ginger beer on the menu of a local café. Despite the dude’s warning, I ordered it. Hah! What does he know I thought and smirked at his order of chocolate smoothie. My ginger ale arrived; I took a sip and turned into a GEM (ginger eating monkey).
How much I had to beg him to trade his smoothie with me is altogether another story.
Yep, lesson learnt 🙂
p.s : Who is Julian? The oldest member of the Famous Five. My crush.
