A cheap Spanish white from Rioja, Marques de Chaceres, viura grape, a perennial favorite. Very crisp, a bit of fruit, similar to a pinot gris.

Pretty boring. Just finished a can of Kroger caffeine-free diet cola.

***cough, cough, catch breath***

I just took a "drink" of a red I opened - felt the burn right away - looked at the bottle and it's 16% alcohol!!!!!!!!!!! Soon it will be g-night! It still has great flavor to be so high in alcohol though It's Molly Dooker Maitre d' - Cabernet Sauvignon.

Awww, rub it in, Elf! Have a good, hefty swig for me, please! I'm on my way to the fridge to see what wine we have open. It won't be as strong as Elf's but that just means I'll have a refill. I deserve it today!

Estancia pinot gris. Not bad, not their best. They make a mid-range meritage that is very tasty.

Have you ever had the Hahn Meritage? It's roughly a 13 dollar bottle of wine that drinks like a 25 dollar bottle - good stuff!

Wish I had a Tanqueray and tonic with a twist of lime ... or maybe a few more ... I just LOVE that stuff!

I am enjoying a nice icy cold Bud Light (not sure of the vintage, but could give you a born on date) and waiting for more great recipes. This is a great thread--need to start it in intervals, so there isn't 30 pages to sort thru
