8:39 - I swear I'm not an alcoholic

Previous Entry Share Flag Next Entry

So, after much despair was caused by looking at the bare cupboards of my liquer cabinet, I decided to make a run down to BevMo last night. ox_number_10 decided to join me, so after I had a nice simple drink (Mike's Hard Lemonade mixed with about a shot of Triple Sec) that turned out far better than it should have (it was actually quite yummy) he saved his game and we headed off.



We take the bus there, are plesantly suprsed to discover the bus stop is right at the corner near BevMo, and the bus stop to come home is right at the edge of the parking lot (so we don't have to carry the booze far, how nice of them!). So it is with happy faces we wander in thru the main doors to all that is right in the world. We are asked to leave the bag (I had brought my duffel for carrying everything home) at the front of the store -- a reasonable request. Ox#10 and I begin hunting down the stuff we had come for. After discovering that all the stuff in glass cabinets needs to be last ("all items in this case must be taken to the checkout by a store employee" or something to that effect) we then set off in search of the more mundane items.

About 15 minutes of wandering the aisles, we finished up by having a check-out guy get our bottles out of the cases and we proceede to pay for everything, put it in the bag, and wander off to the bus stop to come home. An interesting experiance occured on the busride home, consiting of idiots throwing a brick (or something like one) at the bus and breaking a window, but we managed to get back to the house with relative ease. I have only to say that next time we are taking two bags, for this much stuff is WAY too heavy for one.

When all was said and done, the liquer cabinet now looks more like its normal self, and is in fact almost to the point where we will likely claim a third cabinet for its use. It being difficult to see the bottles in the back row or two. Happilly I have it organized by type of alcohol so you at least don't have to search too far to find what you're looking for.

Here's the shopping list from last night:
Potters Melon Liqueur (Midori was more than I wished to spend at this time and we'll see if the differance is noticeable)
Bacardi Gold Rum
Bacardi Light Rum (standards I've been missing as of late)
Creme De Bananna (I've been wanting some of this for a while)
Metaxa Ouzo (Ox#10 wanted to try it)
Bushmills Irish Whiskey (not the best, but good enough for now)
Clear Creek Kirschwasser (cherry brandy -- another thing I've been wanting to try for a while)
Milagro Silver (best damn Tequila I've had)
Grey Goose Vodka (best damn vodka I've had -- The only vodka I actually like on it's own)

Tried the Melon Liqueur (good enough for mixing), KirschWasser (yummy), and Grey Goose (words cannot describe the goodness) after we got everything sorted and away. All in all, a nice evening.

We did, however, forget the Raspberry Vodka. Which is particularly annoying as that was one of the things we were saying we _needed_ to pick up. Oh well. Next month is only a few weeks away.

I think the idiots were after the booze. ;)

Wow, sounds like you guys are well stocked. I think a house warming party is in order. :)

Ah, but you see, if we were to do that, then we would shortly find ourselves once again with bare cabinets. :)

Though, having a few select people over for some drinks and movie watching is a possibility.

Well, the cool thing about a house warming party is that guests also bring things.

Brings me back to my bartending days of yore. Oh those were the days, especially when I was able to stock the home bar at wholesale prices, I had a really good manager. My nights were filled with young frankenstein-esue creations... Time to lament...
