“not persisted with drinking a non-alcoholic beer“.
On Friday I met up with two friends by way of a monthly catch up. The venue was a newly opened micropub. My chosen drink is a warm hot chocolate, each and everytime. While this micropub was a beautiful cosy place, like many of its type the drink selection was specific. No hot chocolate on offer! The only soft drink option was a non-alcoholic beer, 0% alcohol but with a chocolate extract. I poured it into my glass, the black liquid heavily swishing until it reached the brim. I took the first sip and winced. The second sip didn’t alter the sensation much. I managed to finish the drink, but I had made myself a hot chocolate as soon as I got home. Just to diminish the dreadful taste.
