They ARE yummy! Potent, but yummy. Nip bottles are the airline bottles - between 1 and 2 ounces each. Nice little samples when you want to try something...Himself picked out one each of about 8 Bourbons, plus a bottle of moonshine. We haven't tried that stuff yet...

Hmm, must have been the Margarita and the wine.

You noticed that typo. But, maybe I did slip my mind. I'm blaming the hootch.

I had to laugh, we went back to the new fave steakhouse last night, and ended up splitting another porterhouse. This was our third time there. The first time, we got a porterhouse with nothing else on the plate, and 2 Caesar salads. The second time, the steak came with green beans and 2 Caesar salads. Last night, it was the steak, green beans, baked potato with sour cream and butter, and 2 Caesar salads. Wonder what they'll add next week? Each time the price was the same. Oh, and we had to ask for bread again, it's supposed to be included, but the waitrons universally always forget about it.

Geez taxy, they're only 50 ml a piece - a buck or two depending on the quality. It's nice to get a sip or two of something before you commit to a long-term relationship. Himself hasn't had the Knob Creek 9-y-o yet - I bet he'll put it on his Christmas list when he does.

I was standing in the state store today and they were $2.50 for most I was seeing, Cuervo, Yukon...
But like they say in For Love of the Game, a bunch of little bottles equals one big one

I buy them for cooking/baking.

The $2.50 or $3.50 is better for me than having to buy 750ml of Amaretto, Cointreau, Godiva etc.... when all I need is a tablespoon or two for a recipe and a splash for the cook's coffee.

One year we did fill an Easter basket with them and passed them around with coffee after dinner, that was fun!

- Tell me about it! I wish I could find wine in small bottles here.
The only reason I was in the state store was to buy a bottle of red wine I need for tomorrow. I need one cup

- That's better than hiding them for the kids

I buy Sutter Home 4 packs.

One bottle holds approx. 3/4 cup.

Okay. I think I misunderstood. I had the impression that he went to the stash of airline bottles and chose 8 bourbon to drink immediately.

Lucky you. I wish PA would follow suit with other states.
