“I never drink anything stronger than gin before breakfast.”
So said WC Fields – but, while everyone tittered away at his wit, there were probably more than a few G&T fans out there who were a tad sad that he was joking.

Maybe stick to luxurious weekend breakfast-in-bed scenarios just to be on the safe side.
