I went kind of crazy on the alcohol recently and bought some different stuff to try out for the holidays. My wife saw a recipe for a drink that was 1 part creme de menthe, 1 part creme de cacao and 1 part cream. HOLY BALLS it is DELICIOUS. I have put in my drinking dues and have no problem putting away a few of these fancy fancingtons from time to time.
I also picked up some drambuie because I always wanted to try a Rusty Nail. Well I found out a rusty nail requires scotch and there's no way I'm using my good stuff for a mixer. (Anytime I buy nice booze I have to make my wife repeat after me "this is not for mixing with coke") So I used Seagram's instead. It was pretty good. An interesting change. Kind of sweet and licoricey.
Oh and keeping with tradition I picked up a bottle of Johnnie Walker Gold Label that the wife will be wrapping and putting under the tree for no other reason than the fact that I get to wake up Christmas morning, unwrap it and pour myself a Baby Jesus Day pick-me-up at 6 a.m.
