    L'expression "l'eau qui pique" signifie de l'alcool fort.
    Pas chez moi ! :)

    I sometimes say (but maybe I'm wrong!) "l'eau qui pique" instead of eau gazeuse or eau pétillante... all the more so that I don't like it ;) And I heard it used that way by other people - it's not just me! :p I doubt that in casual business lunches, people would offer some alcool fort as an alternative to tap water :D

    That said, maybe the meaning has evolved... or maybe it depends on the regions...
