Sangria isn't the drink for me.
Though it does take care of your 5 a day.
My favourite Spanish tipple is Freixenet BRUT Cava.
So Imagine my distress when, 2 days before I set off for Barcelona, I saw it on special offer in the local Tesco for £3 a bottle! It costs six and a half Euros in the local Spanish supermarkets. At the current exchange rate that's over twice the Tesco price.
Will hordes of Señors and Señoras come over to UK in charabancs and run amok down the aisles of Tesco? Will they have baccanalian parties in the streets of Stalybridge?
That is just so wrong .... the Brits are the ones who gave binge drinking holidays to the world. It's our only contribution to European culture.
And the even stranger Giro Gin.
And we don't just come to Spain for the booze do we?
On Christmas eve we saw a Penduline Tit!
