To celebrate surviving 2020, my wife and I had a shot of Johnny Walker Blue.  To toast the incoming New Year, we will have a glass of La Grande Dame 2008, a brut from Veuve Clicquot, Reims, France.  Tomorrow we will eat the traditional black-eyed peas for lunch, and the next day I will get vaccinated.  It promises to be a healthy and prosperous New Year.

A Bellla Donna Daiquiri.  I leave out the sugar, though, to slow down how quickly I’ll drink it since it is easy to chug if it is sweetened.  Also, I want to minimize sugar in my diet.  I poach the lemon from the other neighbor’s tree.

I’m not sure if this counts - hot chocolate with a dash of cinnamon and a splash of Rumple Minze peppermint liqueur.  Don’t do this because cinnamon doesn’t go well with peppermint, so use one or the other, but not both.

It’s snowing in TX, so I made a tropical drink - Cane Run rum, Amaretto and OJ.  Nice!

Slowly using up the anise liquor on a Sazarac.

Topo Chico and Cane Run rum. Like Everest - “Because it is there”.

Booker’s bourbon, a select Jim Beam spirit.  64.5% ABV.  Definitely a sipper.  I’m getting spoiled.  A lawyer colleague gave it to me because I did him a solid. Retails at $200 a bottle.

I did some catching up, but it was a bad idea.  A hot buttered rum and two Hefeweizen beers have me down for the count early this evening.

This thread has been resurrected. January is a good time to renew one’s vows to strong drink. Tonight I had Blue Moon beer with my Chilean Sea Bass at the local fish place. The sea bass there is the best I’ve had.  Now, back to Barefoot cabernet with my internet.

Wonderful, I have given up my vow to “strong drink” but love my Australian Sauv Blanc (the crispness, the grapefruit… it is what Adam drank in the Garden of Eden, I believe).

I have no evidence to refute your suggestion about Adam’s alcoholic preferences, but I like to fantasize about it having something to do with apples and figs.  So, in my mind I’ve created Adam’s Figple: Bourbon, Apple Schnaps, a muddled fig, and a bit of Lemon Club Soda for some fizz.  Legend has it that Eve took one sip and dropped her fig leaf.

A bottle of Deschutes Abyss (Old World), a very nice rich, deep stout.  Beer advocate gives it a 100, and I’m not arguing.

That sounds good.  I’ll give it a try if I ever see it.
