Folk Wisdom

Wine then beer makes you feel queer;
beer then wine makes you feel fine.

What do we learn from this? Well, by the immutable laws of rhyme, it’s obviously OK to drink anything you want all evening – tequila, cherry brandy, raki, Bailey’s – as long as you finish it up with a glass of wine.

It’s probably also OK to finish on sherry. Aquavit might be a mistake.

    That’s not been my experience. But beer then Quantro is even worse. I’ve never been able to touch Quantro since.

    Well, folk wisdom is usually rubbish, after all.
