Happy Winesday Wednesday, folks!
It’s been a while. Too long, really. This whole ‘working’ gig has really put a damper on my Wednesday drinking schedule. I really just can’t do alcohol during the week (even a glass!) otherwise, I’m totally thrown off for the rest of the week. And Friday becomes less fun.
But I’m gonna try to bring it back. Keyword: TRY. Just to share what I’ave had. And maybe get some suggestions from you guys. Or maybe it’ll just turn into a reason for me to find wine-related photos online. I DUNNO.
What I want to share with you this week (Hint: It’s alcohol)
THIS. Do you know who makes this? Wayne Gretzky, that’s who. And you think it would be one of those craptastic wines to bring as a funny dinner party gift. But you know what? Bring it as a gift. Because it’s actually pretty tasty. And here in Canada, it costs a measly $20. Then imagine everyone loving the wine and drinking all of it and having a grand old time.
That would be if you’re social. But me? I like to drink my wine in my pajamas on the couch. In the dark. With 2 dogs worth of drool and hair all over.
Here’s another wine to try:
Jo introduced this to me last weekend on my visit. It’s too bad the bottle was half empty when I got there, otherwise I would have had a much bigger buzz going into the hot tub! (If this is the part where I’m supposed to explain to you what it tastes like: it tastes like red wine. Red wine that is super easy to drink.)
Boozy things of interest:
- Peeps Jello Shots. WHO’S INVITING ME OVER FOR EASTER BECAUSE I WILL BE DRUNK ON THESE ALL DAY. (all caps= extreme excitement)
- Sparkling Fruit Sangria. I think this will be made a lot this summer with some of our fist batch of homemade wine. No, the wine isn’t bad…
- Wine. All the Time. Recipes (with booze). Reviews (about booze). And humor. Happy happy happy.
- Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival- Banff. A day filled with WINE and FOOD. IN THE MOUNTAINS. Who wants to go with me?
- This shirt. I want it. I need it. Give it to me.
I would wear that shirt EVERY DAY if I owned it. And I think I could become a Peeps convert if alcohol was involved, though I’m pretty much willing to do anything for a drink. I’m glad you brought this series back!
The shirt really is too cool. And yea, I always see recipes for fancy shots or drinks, but always get impatient and still with the stuff on it’s own..or mixed with soda water! haha
I’m a little shocked that Gretzky’s wine is actually good. Too many ‘celebrity’ endorsement products really suck.
Yeah, I normally wouldn’t spend the money on celebrity products…but I had a sample at a wine fest I went to and really liked it. So that’s how I was reeled in!
Peeps jello shots? Simply genius!
Wine makes me happy!! For some reason I thought I would give it up for Lent (I’m not even Catholic) – I made it 2 weeks and then decided that 2 weeks was my limit!! Tonight, I have on my yoga pants with my laptop, NCAA tournament and wine – perfect!!
Sounds like a good night! I always said I’d give up alcohol for Lent, but it usually fails miserably about 3-4 days in. I tried giving up chocolate too. That was DUMB.
