My younger years (not that long ago) consisted of quite a few nights filled with too much drinking (as many collage aged kids do) and as a result of some bad drink choices, I can no longer tolerate most hard alcohol.
As time passes, I slowly (at sloth speed) have been able to add some drinks back into my life. Beer for instance, turned my stomach for so many years, now? I am obsessed. Not in a, you need to join AA kind of way, I just have fun sampling new things and finding local brews.
Whiskey, depending on the drink, I can now tolerate, gin has never left my side, and now I can drink vodka, and Kahlua.
Rum and tequila however, keep away. Just a whiff of it and I am running to the nearest bathroom.
Now that the nights are cold, the Christmas tree is up I have been enjoying rich classic drinks like White Russians. Now, I know most of you know how to make them, however I could not pass up the opportunity to blog about such a simple treat.
