Usually I am ‘late for the party’ for Sean’s MEMEs – but not this time !


  1. Do you have a favorite alcoholic drink?


I have several “favorites” rather.  I like wine with dinner, and champagne as as treat. Whisky/bourbon is my “snort of choice”. Right now a dry manhattan and a dry martini are competing for my favorite cocktail.  But summer time calls for “windex” (recipe in my blog somewhere). But if I have to choose just one (bottle) to bring to the desert island, I would bring a good bottle of bourbon.


2. What kind of wine do you prefer?


Again this depends on my mood and the weather.  My favorite is Malbec (at the moment). I am also fond for a earthy red wine called Baco noir.


3. Do you have a favorite beer?


I like’em dark, slightly bitter, and spicy – like my men.  I like stouts.


4. Can you taste the difference between vodkas?


Heck yes. I have a good palate for discriminating wine, gin, vodka, and whiskies. I like the good stuff, no rubbish.


5. Are you a top shelf or rail kinda person?

Let’s face it, I’m a booze-snob.


6. What was your most memorable (good, bad or embarrassing) drinking experience? 


In college, in a bibulous state, I literally put on the lamp side. There goes dignity, and my good Henley Street name.



Have you ever drunk dialed?

If this means have I ever called someone while tipsy, the unfortunate answer is yes. I recall ordering pizza trying to sound oh so sober; I did not fool anyone.


Sean – I am surprised: usually the ‘bonus question’ is of a lurid and lascivious nature. I expected something along the line of ‘have you ever streaked while intoxicated’ or ‘Have you ever had sex with someone only because you were too drunk to say no?”
