I'm thinking, LadyCook is starting pretty early, since this is a thread regarding alcoholic drinks we are consuming but maybe you are taking your tea, straight?

Anyway, I will fortify myself at some point today to brave the elements. Starting to get some snow, need something to warm me up!

I posted in the wrong forum, I meant to post in non alcoholic forum. I don't drink alcohol at all.

Rock on! Originally from Napa I sent many years working part time at the tasting bars, and discovered that price is no indicator of quality. It's an indicator of snob-ish looking labels. Consider it. A grape is a grape. If you take 2 tons of cabernet grapes and make wine, you get wine. Price is all about the bottle. Even the grapes themselves are a myth at this point. The Phyloxerra (sp?) bug that attacks the roots and kills off entire regions of wine grapes, has worked it vile magic many times over the years. When it happened in Napa, the french growers all donated seedlings to restart the vineyards, Napa returned the favor more than once. So these same grapes have been all over the world. There are french grapes in Napa, and Calif grapes in France. Sure techniques and times are different from winery to winery, but the ingredients are all the same. A pound of grapes is just a pound of grapes.

Sorry...enough of my babbling... here's my top 5 under $10. Most expensive on the list is the Coppola @ 8.99.
2005 Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages
2004 Rosemount Estate Diamond Label Shiraz
2004 Francis Coppola Rosso Classic
2003 Bella Sera Sangiovese
2004 Rex Goliath Giant 47 Pound Rooster

As for me, I'm in the process of taking pictures for my website of all of the drinks recipes for St. Patricks day. lol. Lot's and LOTS of Guinness, Jamesons whiskey, Balieys and such...it's all been flowing freely in the last few days. lol. as we speak (yes i know what time it is shuddup) it's a nice big Irish coffee.
