Since I love herbal tees I just asked 'aunt wiki(pedia)' for a list - now I know the English names for some of the herbs I alredy knew in German or Polish :-) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbal_..., those with stars are soft drinks from different countries (with country name) also from wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of... and the one with two stars is the only one alcoholic drink and I took it because of the name: If you translate zima from Polish you have winter and I love snow :-) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zima_(d...

I had to choose that one. It's the only alcoholic drink I like so it had to be on the list.


message 33: by Connie N. (new)

Connie N. | 3435 comments So, do you mean you finished spelling out the drink? Or did you actually finish the drink?


message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

Maybe both? ;)
