The show had swapped the Moet for Lidl's Champagne and the couple couldn't tell the difference.

Where I live "lad" or "lads" only refers to a man or men. I personally would find it quite strange to see a woman addressed as "lad". I have been addressed as lad and found it quite endearing. I think there is an assumption that mostly men drink beer.

In fact the Cambridge English dictionary defines the plural "lads" refers to a group of men.

On the other hand, Yyhhuuu may be just taking the pi$$, in which case all is good in the world and we can all live a little bit better together....social distancing of course!
You are merely completely misconstruing what I said with phoney suggestions of my creating some sort of agenda.

Can I respectfully suggest you examine the Cambridge English dictionary's definition of the work "lads" to denote males.

On topic, could anybody kindly let me know if there are any beer deals in Tesco. Many thanks.

If you live in Cambridge, you might be correct in that 'lads' refers to young males. If you live in Ireland, particularly the West, 'lads' refers to young ones that hang around together - male or female - and not always 'young'.

'Ladeen' refers to young 'young ones', and that will not be in your Cambridge dictionary.

More beer and less talk.

Unless you bought food you dont like - the principal of saving the €5er on whiskey still applies.
So buy the whiskey!

That's interesting, I've been thinking of a Margherita night also, but always seemed expensive.
Must check Aldi and Lidl to see if they sell a cheaper version

In previous years ALDI have had a triple sec orange liqueur on sale in the run up to Christmas. Much cheaper than Cointreau.
Disappears off the shelves very quickly!
Keep an eye out for their xmas catalogue.

You can make orange liqueur at home using basic vodka and orange peel and a few other ingredients.
You can google recipes as such approaches are outside the scope of this thread

Powers (new bottle) 1ltr = €26.56 in SV over the weekend. Usually €45.
Hurry - while stocks last - I think the offer ends tomorrow?
