OK, my husband and I are not big alcohol drinkers in general, and really not wine drinkers at all. So the question is what would we order to drink with our meals?
I normally drink Coke, but I understand that this can be really expensive, so I will try not to order it too often, I also like Ice Tea, which i figure is probably not available in Italy, it being a North American thing - is that a correct assumption?
I have read that people order bottle water, does this mean a sparkling water, or just regular water? I am also assuming then that restaurants do not provide you with glasses of tap water.
The one wine I do really like is Ernest and Julio, White Zinfandel - what could I order in Rome that would be like this - would they understand white zinfandel if I asked for it? We don't like red wine at all, so we really need to stay away from that.
What about beer, if my husband wanted to order it. He likes to drink Sleeman's Honey Brown type beers, is there a Italian equivalent someone can tell me about?
Thank You, we want to try other things, but no point getting stuck with a bottle of house red that we won't drink.
Thanks again for the information.
