Is 7:25AM too early for a refreshing and bright cucumber gin cocktail? I think not. How can something this pretty not be OK. :kiss:

That’s got cucumbers in it, so it’s just like a salad and good for you.

I haven't been regularly drinking wine at home for years, and I just finished my 2nd bottle within a week. I have 3 more bottles left and might place my next order in advance "just in case".
Do it. It’s a rookie mistake to let your stash run dry before reordering!

Exactly my thinking too. :bigsmile:

And here's another "good for you" cocktail.
My favorite- the simple Gin and Tonic.

Lime =Vitamin C and Gin is good for us. And who knew- more reasons it is "good" for us.


Cheers.

Holy cow -- what a FANTASTIC use of space! Makes me sad I don't own that four story house any more!

This wine was made by my podiatrist. It's amazing. It's the only red wine that doesn't give me a headache. No sulfites. So smooth. Not only is he a great podiatrist but he's a great vintner.
Cheers.

This looks so good!

Popped open my 3rd bottle of wine this week. In my defense, my husband has been drinking a glass here and there. Also in my defense, he's also been driving me bat shit crazy and I needed a little numbing. God help me, I might come out of this pandemic an alcoholic... :roll2:

Happy Thursday kids!

No idea what this thing is I’m drinking out of BTW. My guess is it may have had a lid in its original usage, but if so that kid was long gone when I bought it for a quarter at a yard sale so it is what it is!

It is (was) good!

I used to have an adult beverage maybe 2 times per month... It is more often now. I am having fun sharing my few cocktails that I make, plus I have 30 27 bottles of Champagne, Prosecco & Brut Rosé to drink from an event that was postponed (possibly canceled).:(2=)2

I thought I would try my coffee (with my normal splash of sweet cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon) in a china cup.

I had my second cup in my plain white mug, with a little too much sweet cream. I think I will stick to my plain white mug.

One of my favorite wines is Moscato. @Dee*Jay I think you're a Prosecco girl and while I like a good Prosecco my heart belongs to Moscato.

This is one of my faves.

Along those lines I love Reisling too. The ones on the sweeter side. For another day.

@missy I started with Moscato, moved on to Reisling, now I prefer Prosecco. I will pick up a bottle of the Bartenura to try. My husband will be happy, he likes the sweet stuff.
