Things which I may regret experimenting with

Guinness with a whiskey chaser. Not really a chaser, more an accompaniment.

Apart from tasting nice, there's an argument for it which goes something like "it means I drink less Guinness on balance to get to the same level of drunkenness, which means I'm not getting as fat per unit alcohol I consume, as there are fewer calories in Jameson's". That, however, is the sort of bullshit logic that reductios to "if I just drink neat spirits all the time that would be great".

I've been down the "calorie control excuse" route with red wine vs beer before, and while it does work for losing weight - I lost two or three stone and people were asking me whether I'd become anorexic - it's not what you'd call a good long-term solution.

You could, of course, experiment with sobriety.

What fun would that be.

We enjoy learning about Fridge's exploits with booze.

You need some booze-related fat?

I've got a kilo or so of T&A fat you're more than welcome to.

I'd even pay shipping. :)

On a relevant note, guinness is so rich that a nice rye goes very well with it.

It also works for marinading beef or lamb.
