Corrie A-Z: U is for Usuals

We all have our favourite tipple when we go to the pub or out for a meal – me, it’s an appletiser. And the residents of Coronation Street are no different. Many a time when the punters enter the Rovers, you can hear the barmaids asking “Usual?”.
 
Rita’s known for her fondness of vodka and tonic while Audrey likes her gin and tonic. Deirdre enjoys a glass of red wine, although I can’t recall what her tipple was in the early days. Anyone remember?
 
Hilda Ogden, Ivy Tilsley and Phyllis Pearce indulged in a bottle of lager with a glass while Elsie Tanner was seen with a glass of gin and tonic. And of course Ena Sharples, Minnie Caldwell and Martha Longhurst were seen supping milk stout in the snug.
 
Many of the menfolk of the cobbles like Alf Roberts, Len Fairclough, Jack Duckworth, Steve McDonald and Stan Ogden enjoyed a pint of bitter while Ken Barlow and Norris enjoy a half of bitter as did Percy Sugden. Albert Tatlock’s favourite tipple was a rum and often got the other punters to buy it for him!
 
Emily Bishop likes her sherry while Mavis Riley enjoyed a pineapple juice and Becky Granger liked her snakebite shandy. Roy and Hayley Cropper enjoy an orange juice at the Rovers.
 
Can you think of any other ‘usuals’?

Eileen's Vodka and Coke. Maybe that's not strange in UK, but here in Canada it's a bit 'unusual... However, I've since had a few Voddy and Cokes~ very tasty.
