I wanted to brew something different for a change, and I opted for a real, alcoholic ginger beer.
It was very simple and cheap to make, but the result is extremely dry — you have to be a real ginger beer lover to enjoy it without adding something to it.
However, a dash of lime cordial turns it into a pleasant and refreshing drink, although at 6% it’s not something you should drink too fast!
Edmund Conway has posted a graph showing who the UK Government owes money to.
Not only does the government owe a lot of money to the Bank of England, but less and less money is owed to households (who might have been more forgiving about getting all the money back).
It really makes me wonder who Westminster think they’re fooling!
