    A popular drink for the ladies back in the late 60s & 70s.
    It was in small bottles and often mixed with other various drinks. I think one of the mixers was cider but Im not sure.
    I havent seen it for many years then noticed it on offer at Morrisons (must have been a Christmas thing).....so I bought a pack of 4 bottles.
    There were other similar sized drinks at the time eg Pony ?

    Nope. But it brings to mind one of my Dad's favoured tipples:

    Wasn't a beer drinker, but he did like his 'barley wine' (rather odd, now I come to think of it - surely it was more of a beer than a wine?)

    I can remember my parents having cheese and wine parties back in the early 70's, where bottles of Blue Nun and Liebfraumilch were regarded as the height of sophistication.

    I can blame the birth of our son on Cherry B & Cider, well I suppose that's incorrect it was to blame for the conception

    I remember those parties. The ladies would wear kaftan-like dresses. They looked like a collection of hang-gliders.

  10. We used to collect bottles for the pop van man and get my money back.

    I now collect empty soda and beer cans from the countryside while I am out riding. I take them to the supermarket and put them in a machine. I then get a reciept which I can spend in the supermarket.

    On honeymoon in Scarborough....1968 ....I went to the bar and asked for a beer for me and a Cherry B & Cider for the new Mrs D (who was just turned 19). The barman said "around here we call them knicker droppers".
    I hope they dont still have that affect :blush:

    One would never suggest sneaking around the back of the shop, removing bottles from the stored crates & taking them back in through the front door to get our refund

    We used to mix half a bitter with a gold label. That was really potent.
