View Full Version : Caffeine Free Festive Beverages...

Giving up caffeine. It was either the caffeine or the heroin. No contest.

So far I've tried Twinings's Lemon and Ginger: very nice but even nicer with two spoons of sugar and a stiff double brandy. Twining's Pure Peppermint: nice enough, but not as nice as the Lemon and Ginger, although a stiff double brandy helps the medicine go down.

So, any of you guys got any recommendations?

P.S. please excuse any spelling mistakes etc...absolutely opi55ed. Thank you very nice.

Horlicks. Tastes great when sprinkled over flesh and licked off. Available in tablet form too. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Horlicks? Does it go with brandy?

A bit chewy. Might need a fork.

LOL, you're a man after my own heart, LF.

I prefer honey... it's a sticky mess and it tastes so good on the honey pot.

I've heard horlicks comes with a health hazard, so it might be risky with anything.

Why would you quit caffeine? It really doesn't do anything bad to you, if you have heart trouble then it can put your heart rate and blood pressure a bit too high but it doesn't give your chronic heart/blood pressure problems from what I know. But for me having caffeine in the morning does make it harder for me to fall asleep at night, and I don't like dealing with caffeine headaches. But when I've tried quitting caffeine I feel super tired all day even after being off it a couple months.

Anyway here are some good non-alcoholic, non-caffeine "cocktail" suggestions:

- ginger beer with a slice of lime or lemon squeezed in and thrown in

- sparkling water mixed with grape juice and a slice of lime squeezed in and thrown in

- pure cranberry juice mixed with water, with a slice of lime squeezed in and thrown in
