Half full or half empty?

Doesn't matter. Put them together in one large wine glass + give them to me = happy me. Yay optimism!

They're both more than half full! Half an inch lower and I'd say half empty.

I'm an optimistic pessimist straight face

I can mix white with ice or orange juice, or water. But the red & white together. shocked  Eleanor!  No!

We had a variety of alcohol on the table at Christmas a few years ago. I mixed everything. tongue By the time I got to the rum, I misread the label and thought it was 3.5% when it was actually 35%, and chugged back a glass of it.

To be fair, I've never tried red and white together. I'm actually tempted to do it, just to see what it tastes like! laughing

I'll have the white wine (so long as it is dry-ish). Red wine tastes of iron filings or watery blood, so no thanks.

And make my glass half full!

Eleanor,  no! Don't..... you'll be sick babe.

Yeah Lydda, (I hope its ok for me to use your true name as I actually love it. Just say if you prefer Lynda.) I also like white wine, crisp & dry.  The drier the better. That is too yellow to be dry. I suspect its a sweeter drop. But I also enjoy a cab sav every now & then by the fire with a deck of cards. disco

Yes, that one was a medium. I much prefer dry, but I had to drink it or it would've gone to waste - can't have that, can we?

I love cider, but it doesn't like me much nowadays - any more than a couple of glasses & my stomach tells me about it! sad
