drinks anyone?

ahh the holidays in tucker county.

the sleepy, sometimes somber time of sloppy roads and slippery sidewalks.  the time for plowing, skiing, shoveling, eating, drinking, laughing, sleeping, movies and yep,  then more shoveling.

these are the days that dont have too many colors.  mostly white and gray and black. and maybe small variations of each. so. to lively up these days of sometimes bland, we need color.  lots of it.  some find it in a book.  others in movies.  some in tv.  but not me.  nope.  i find my color in pleasing my mouth.  i take great care of my taste buds.  and the relationship is very reciprocal.

food. hmm. i love it.  i love it so much.  i love the way it tastes.  combinations of flavors and spices and colors and shapes just tic my clock.  but, seeing as my expertise is the drink, both professionally and for recreational uses, i have decided to mainly focus on supple and beautiful liqiud pleasures.

there are two.  yep two.  only two great drinks i recommend for the holiday season.

the ginger snap:

  • 4 ounces of egg nog
  • 3/4 ounce of spiced rum
  • 1/2 ounce of brandy
  • 1 ginger snap
  • and the champagne cocktail:

  • 2 ounces of cognac
  • 3/4 ounce of Frangelico
  • 1/2 ounce of lemon juice
  • champagne
  • glace cherries
  • hope you all enjoy.  until next time….
