    I tried Taylor's of Harrogate decaffeinated coffee bags and when I had black coffee, it was like bad instant so I wouldn't recommend that.
    They seem to be getting difficult to find, but I highly recommend Cru Kafé decaf coffee bags - miles better than other brands.

    I just wish there were more wines at 6% alcohol.  There don't appear to be any in Tesco although I think Portuguese Vinho Verde wine is lower in alcohol.

    Can you not  dilute it with an equal quantity of water / tonic / lemonade / juice to turn a 12% into 6%?

    So much to read, so little time.

    It's not really wine though at that point, it's really a spritzer or a cocktail.

    There are some acceptable zero alcohol wines around - the M&S rose prosecco zero is pretty good if you want a sparkling option.

    Sainsbury's and Morrisons have a few mid-alcohol wines.  There is a range (sauvignon blanc, rosé and shiraz) called McGuigan Mid at 7% alcohol and another called Time Keeper at 5%, although the latter doesn't have great reviews.
  • If I’m designated driver or just not wanting an alcoholic drink then I just have council pop (or tap water). That or a cup of tea 😁
