I haven't darkened the doors of a bar in almost two weeks. That shouldn't be a big deal, but it is. I am taking an unintended hiatus from my bartending gig, and haven't felt much like hanging out in a smoky room lately. Instead, I have been spending a lot of time at home: reading, watching movies, catching up on blogging and sending exciting, hopeful little text messages to a special someone.
To celebrate the end of another busy, stressful day, I propose a toast. I've been drinking a lot of wine lately. I'm not trying to be fancy; I just get too fat when I drink beer! My wine of choice is always a white. Sometimes a Riesling, but lately I favor a Moscato. I tried a new brand on New Year's Eve - Barefoot Wine & Bubbly - and really enjoyed it. I have since bought more, and we go through it pretty quickly each time!
It's hard for me to find a wine I truly enjoy, and therefore I don't show loyalty to any one particular brand. This one is different, however, as we tried three varieties on NYE and enjoyed each one. While I many venture out and try others, I am confident this will be my new "go to" wine. The Spumante is perfect for a special celebration, the Red Moscato a compliment to many meat dishes, and the Moscato pairs perfectly with Thirsty Thursday. Cheers!
