What a week!!!! This week Daddy Warbucks was in town , last minute as usual, and had me tied up three nights, so this put yours truly behind, as I had hoped I'd be much further in my holiday shopping. Last night after work I made my mind up, no more putting it off, I've got to get shopping! I stopped in New Hope on my sojourn home to my favorite shop. The staff are always happy to see to coming...so friendly and knowledgeable. And they give plenty of samples and tastings.....
But where to start?
But of course..... in the aisle of old friends....
A bottle of this.
Two of my favorite new gins. add those.
Another favorite of mine. A Philadelphia favorite. And contrary to popular belief, the brewery is NOT in my backyard.
A good stand by.
This gem, Opihr is a new gin out and was the newest to my gin collection. I'll let you know the results if I remember.
I do like my rum once in a while, and this one is simply divine.
For those mind altering, steamy nights with the boys.... is a staple.
One the cold nights, or when I have gentlemen in, what a nice warming beverage for winter nights. It was about this time one of the Neighborhood Bitches ran into me, judging my selection in the cart, and my brogues I'm sure. She said "Absinthe" in a snotty voice. Before moving along, when she wasn't looking, I put a bottle of rot gut vodka in her cart.
And of course, I do like my dry reds in the winter so anything from, of course the Argentinian section is always a pleasant treat.
When I was done 45 minutes later and a tasting or two, I took my four boxes out in the trolley. Sitting in the car, Driver asked how did I do? It then occurred to me, I really need to focus on holiday shopping for actual gifts to give.
