Mmm. Drinks.

Yeah, yeah, I know it’s a little early to be thinking of Christmas, but at work we have catalogs from the distributors showing of all the holiday gift sets and there are so many cool ones this year. I just saw one for Van Gogh Espresso Vodka that comes with four espresso cups. I could be inspired to take out my espresso machine again! Then there are all the typcial martini/margarita glasses, shakers, flasks, etc. Some are pretty nice but really, year to year they’re basically the same thing. One of the brands of Absente has a set with a glass and sugar spoon, which is a cute idea. And then of course they still have the bottle of Jagermeister with the pewter deerhead shooter. I swear this is one of the ugliest things I’ve ever seen. Plus, the antlers break off really easy. Trust me on that one. Oooh, and then there is a sake sampler. I always thought that I didn’t like sake because when I was in college I tried it at a Japanese restaurant and hated it. Chances are it was something like Gekkaikan, which is made in the U.S., not in Japan. I’ve recently tasted several different sakes at tastings and I’ve really fallen in love with it. (Which is why you should always give things a second or even third chance, LOL!) Anyway, so many cool little things that will be out for the holidays!

    No, Jagermeister is the black, medicinal nasty tasting crap that seems to be all the rage these days. You are probably thinking of Goldschläger, Rumple Minze, Avalanche, or Hot Damn. All much more preferable in my book than Jagermeister. Ick.
