Wasting Alchohol!

I'm currently enjoying a seasonal favorite in the form of a tall glass of eggnog. Jennifer brought some home a few day's ago, and begged me to go to the liqour store to get something to punch it up with. For some reason, she had it in her head that I should get some Brandy to put in there. I don't know about you, but I've never ever heard of putting Brandy into eggnog. To me, that's akin to the whole Laphroiag epside that Bou went through awhile back. You don't waste good liqour by pouring it into some concoction. It's to be enjoyed in its own right.

Well, I went down and picked up a small bottle of Bacardi Gold, and I'm proud to say that it goes perfectly in the eggnog. Just pour yourself a healthy double-shot into a 12 oz glass, add the plain eggnog on top, and stir. MMmmm, Mmm! That's a holiday treat! I think I'll go make myself another one.

(I'm back.)

Last night, Steven almost performed a gigantic feat of blasphemy by leaving 3/4 of a bottle of chamagne on the coffee table when he went to bed. Luckily I was there to save the day by consuming that bubbly with zealous abandon. Jenny took one look at me and said "I didn't know you liked champagne." She should have known better, it's got alchohol in it, so she should know that I like it.

I'm doing my part to ensure that no alchohol gets wasted... How about you?

They seem to be doing well in my family! Lots of single malt scotch and wine consumed.

I still think I was right! Who cares how you enjoy the liquor, as long as you enjoy it?!

I've had egg nog with rum in it, but not brandy. That just seems wrong.

And no alcohol gets wasted in my house. I've been known to empty a bottle of wine that tastes like it turned 45 years ago, just because that would be alcohol abuse.

If I could find a brand of champagne that didn't taste like bitter, overcarbonated crap, I'd do my part on the War on Waste.
