Okay. Never mind my name for the moment. I've decided to forswear beer and wine with dinner for a little while and I'm looking for a substitute.
I love water but I find it unsatisfying with meals.
Soda, fruit juice, and anything sweet are out.
Tea, coffee, or any variation thereon, caffeinated or not, won't do.
Alcohol-free beer and wine will make me wistful.
Milk? Yeah right.
Any suggestions? Some traditional beverage I haven't thought of? Something non-traditional, the product of a laboratory? I'm willing to disregard Michael Pollan's advice and eat (or drink) something my grandmother wouldn't have recognized as food (or drink).
Thanks in advance.
