In vino veritas, but in marijuana...what were we talking about again?

Not sure, but I think it involved Cheetos.

I tried my first gin and tonic last week. It was served with dried rose petals and raspberries, with a a side of candied ginger. It was good without all the extra, but those made it fun and my long flight much more tolerable.

Is that the real reason the church prohibits alcohol?

As during winter, i would recommend mulled wine.

Quote:
Glühwein (roughly translated as "glowing-wine", from the temperature the wine is boiled to) is popular in German-speaking countries and in the region of Alsace in France. It is a traditional beverage that is offered during the Christmas holidays. In Alsace Christmas markets, it is traditionally the only alcoholic beverage served. Due to its low alcohol degree because of the warming process, children are also allowed to drink it, while eating local pastries like gingerbread. The oldest documented Glühwein tankard is attributed to Count John IV of Katzenelnbogen,[citation needed] a German nobleman who was the first grower of Riesling grapes. This gold-plated lockable silver tankard is dated to c. 1420.

Glühwein is usually prepared from red wine, heated and spiced with cinnamon sticks, cloves, star aniseed, citrus, sugar and at times vanilla pods. It is sometimes drunk mit Schuss (with a shot), which means that rum or some other liquor has been added. Fruit wines, such as blueberry wine and cherry wine, are occasionally used instead of grape wine in some parts of Germany. There is also a variation of Glühwein which is made with white wine. However, white Glühwein is less popular than its red counterpart.

Another popular variant of Glühwein in Germany is the Feuerzangenbowle. It shares the same recipe, but for this drink a rum-soaked sugarloaf is set on fire and allowed to drip into the wine.

I had some at the Strasbourg market this winter. We had a choice of white or red. I prefer the red.

The colour doesn't count. Watch the size of the jar...

Took a sip of wine once out of curiosity to see what it actually tasted like. I was not favorably impressed! I would just as soon drlnk a glass of vinegar! It was supposedly of a highly valued and respected vintage too! I do like sparkling, non-alcoholic grape juice, though, and sparkling apple cider. I have never tasted champagne, though. I suppose it's possible that I would have a better opinion of that.

Ah Bourbon. We’ve had some good times.

My brother’s drink of choice.

When he and I get together. Man.
