I am thankful for liquor. I’m not a regular drinker of alcoholic beverages, but I do enjoy one from time to time. I’ve had wonderful cocktails and bad choice booze. I’m currently enjoying a glass of Crabbie’s Ginger Beer as part of my “night before Thanksgiving” prep work.
I’ve had celebratory champagne toasts, “help me get thru this event” glasses of wine, shots of a new to me drink with family (last Christmas I learned I like Rumchata mixed with Fireball whiskey), and medicinal booze (those bourbon toddies that I’m not sure actually helped, so I should probably find something else to do with the bourbon). I’ve made pitchers of margaritas for backyard parties, and several lovely chicken dishes involving white wine.
So, while Dionysus and I aren’t very best buds, we are passing acquaintances which serves me well.
