Finally, I'm On Trend!

Home bartenders have turned to Mexico’s national spirit more than ever before, with UK sales rising 94 per cent in the past two years, according to the Wine & Spirit Trade Association.

I adore tequila! 

Distilled from the Mexican agave plant, it is now considered delightfully drinkable if you get the right brand — so much so that the cool crowd actually sip theirs, either neat or simply over ice in a tumbler. And a host of celebrity stakeholders, from George Clooney and Justin ­Timberlake to model Kendall Jenner, extol tequila’s virtues.
The spirit’s low-calorie credentials have helped it appeal to younger, more health-conscious drinkers.

Is this a crowd I want to be part of, though? Hmmm....

I thought that most spirits had low calorie credentials, that it was beer and wine that makes you fat?

I went bald at twenty (damn genetics) and sported a goatee (because otherwise I looked like a boiled egg with legs) and went unnoticed for years until ... it became fashionable. I admit I panicked, I've never been fashionable before. I don't know how to be fashionable. Please stop it!

... and now you're telling me my drinking habits are making me 'more' fashionable FFS.

If this keeps up I'll be man of the year, on the cover of GQ and probably be up for a Nobel too by the end of the year. And just don't start me on all the, unaccustomed, attention I'm suddenly getting from the ladies now I'm in my 50's (and they've been round the block with every other male within a days travel).

For the confirmed, archetypal, introvert ... it's a living nightmare. Stop this round-about, I want to get off. Forget about the other madness, if you ever needed confirmation that we're living in Heinlein's crazy years it's ... me as a fashion icon, fighting off female attention.

Julia, you are now officially an Influencer!

Ah, as a T2 diabetic I'm programmed to think more about carbohydrates which tend to be low or absent in spirits. Presumably the calories are in the alcohol itself.

It's foul stuff in my opinion
