Who made the selection and who didn’t?
Another cupboard that has seen a drastic wipe out ready for the house move has been the drinks cupboard and I’m assuming most houses have the same as ours did pre – clear out.
Dregs in a bottle of Ouzo dating back to a lads holiday about 20 years ago – never touched since.
A bottle of Rucolino – untouched – my Italian friends will hold their hands up in horror, but the fact is we just don’t drink it here. Chucked down the sink.
A half bottle of Limoncello, delicious when sipped by the sea on a hot Italian summer night – loses its appeal back home when a cup of tea does just the job.
A bottle of Bum – I kid you not. There is a rum sold by that name in Prague airport. It tickled me pink when I gave a bottle to my brother one Christmas and repeatedly asked people if they’d like some of Dom’s Bum :)
So who made my scrutinous selection? Well the bottle of Veuve, Christmas pressie from Jean waiting to be cracked open in the new gaff – can’t wait and can’t believe I haven’t already drank it!
Vodka from Warsaw – the real mc coy, delicious over ice cream.
Pimm’s – the summer is almost here and I love a Pimm’s with all the fruit.
Brandy – for cooking and colds/flu ie in milk with honey.
Irish whiskey – not my favourite this one though.
Port – My other half drinks it but only twice a year (Don’t ask!)
and Gordon’s, one of my favourite tipples is a G + T with ice and a slice.
Have you got any monster alcohol hanging around at the back of your drinks cupboard?
