Everyone is different. Whilst this may not be too big of a shock for you it is true and it is this reason we have to thank for all of the variation we have in our lives. If you don’t like wearing blue jeans you can go out and get some black ones, if you don’t fancy eating a curry tonight there is a Chinese restaurant just on the corner.
Long story short there are a lot of different options facing us all in our everyday lives. The one we are going to be looking at today is with regards to drinks and the menagerie of them that are out there on the market.
There are drinks for when you want a sugary boost, there are drinks to refuel you after a workout, there are drinks which can get you drunk, and there is even a drink which claims to be “smart water”. How water can be smart is beyond me but there you go! With all of this choice on offer it begs the question “why would any company want to make a drink that tastes horrid?” There are plenty of them out there and it makes you wonder how they can possibly make any money from them. For example I am a huge fan of milkshakes.
You have the classic trio of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla and then any number of other combinations which are like a dream on my tongue (cream egg and kinder Bueno milkshakes are my favourites.) Then there are those which, simply put can only be described as disgusting. People have tried to experiment with flavours in retaliation to the latest trends like fitness or a specific ingredient (Kale for example) and they have assumed putting all of these ingredients into a blender and adding some milk and ice cream will make a lovely new drink. They were wrong.
An awful lot of alcohol does not taste very nice at all, but there are some which take the biscuit and are barely even drinkable. There are a lot of people out there who love a pint of beer after a stressful day, or people who enjoy a glass of wine or six when they are out on the town. I am one of these people and understand where they are coming from perfectly.
The thing I don’t get is those people who enjoy the drinks which simply taste horrific. I am thinking your Sambuca’s, the straight whiskey, or even just vodka. When mixed with other nicer tasting drinks then these beverages can be palatable, but when on their own I think I would rather eat a large portion of dirt than drink these. You wouldn’t make a cake you couldn’t eat so why make a drink that the majority of the population can’t drink? And for those of you out there who are thinking that it’s just me being a wimp and being unable to hold my drink with these thoughts, well… you may be on to something there but never mind. Let’s all just stick to the things that taste nice and try to keep it simple?
In today’s world with the internet at our fingertips it is not hard to find a new and exciting recipe for your drinks. The World Wide Web is a Smoothie Makers Paradise, and you can find any number of delicious combinations of ingredients to make your dream drink with. You can combine strawberry, banana and raspberry to form a sweet tasting, yet still healthy smoothie, you can find new milkshakes to try out, but most important of all, you can use the internet to find, buy and then use a new mixer to take away the god awful taste of the aforementioned alcohol.
I sincerely hope that this article has acted as a wakeup call for all of you out there and you will be thinking twice before getting any horrid drinks again. There are better things out there people and you deserve them!
