Another year is in the books. Its the great time of year where you are allowed to make an ass of yourself and cover up with " Happy New Year". You can literally tip over your barstool, spilling a crowd's drinks and get away with it because you have a funny hat and noisemaker. December 31st is the only night where it is okay to make bold promises and not follow through with them. Where it's okay to kiss a perfect stranger and then walk away. It is glorious. All of these things are great, but normally occur because everyone else does it. So I implore you all to try something new this year and it could start with your drink of choice to begin this assuredly disastrous new year.
Maybe it's a sign of my old age and lack of a outgoing personality, but this year I plan to fight any crowd and stay home with my date, Sweet Rose. This fine sparkler from Korbel is affordable at $9-12/btl and is a twist on your typical champagne/sparkling wine toast. Or in my case, a drink straight out of the bottle. I will update with my tasting notes in a few days.
Readers....Any drink plans for this fine holiday? Any silly resolutions?
Cheers! oh and happy new year!
