Imagine your loved one finding a Flaviar membership in their stocking this year, rather then a new tie or underwear.The Joy

Why Flaviar:

Every year at Christmas time, we struggle to find that perfect gift for the people we love. And this year it will be even more difficult to shop for our loved one’s. With the corona virus still looming around, it is not very safe to go to crowded public stores to shop. As the cold weather returns, so does a second wave of the virus.

You can be like everyone else, and shop for the same things, like slippers, ties and under garments. However, you are a lot smarter than everyone else, aren’t you? You know that you have a whiskey lover somewhere in your family or circle of friends. Plus you are smart enough to stay safe and shop from the comfort of your sofa.

You are one of the few that will make your gift stand out this Christmas. And, get them a membership to the worlds best whiskey club, Flaviar. This gift will give them more then just whiskey samples, The owners of Flaviar have been working their bottoms off to bring improvements to the club. I think that anyone who gets a membership to this club will be more then grateful. And, you will be happy that you got to stay home to bring all that joy.

We All Have Dreams:Whiskey Dreams

Keep in mind that the bottles at the distillery are bottles that can not be found in your local liquor store. These are craft bottles and reserved for members of the club. This perk alone, is well worth the price of a Flaviar membership. And, there is still more for the club membership to offer its members. I will tell you about one more of the benefits of being a club member.

Live Blending And Tasting Events:

As a member of the worlds number one whiskey club, Flaviar, you are also invited to live blending and tasting events at no extra charge. You will get to interact with the brands that you love as well as find new brands to love. You also get to meet the people behind the drinks. The one’s who craft the spirits that we love to drink.

As they sit there and sip on the samples of whiskey, or make a mixed drink the full sized bottle, they will be reminded of just how much you love them. Plus you know that they are going to find some way to repay the favor every time they get a delivery. Do not be one of those who waits until the last minute and shop for gifts.

Be Smart This Year:

There are a lot of people who think that this virus is fake. I, however am not one of them. This virus is real, and it is killing people. You add this to the flu virus that’s right around the corner, and it makes the outside world a deadly place to be. If it were me, I would stay home and shop from the safety, and comfort of my home. By doing so I am keeping my loved one’s safe from the virus as well. Now they do not have to run out the liquor store to get their favorite spirits.

It is my legal obligation to tell you, that I make a small commission from any sale that may result from the publication of this article. I am only trying to help you stay safe, as well as bring some joy to the one’s you love.

The Best Gift For Whiskey Lovers:

Do you have someone in your life that loves whiskey or bourbon? Are you struggling to find the best gift for whiskey lovers? Then struggle no more my friends, I have the perfect solution for you right here, right now. Read on to find out my recommendation.

Whiskey Dreams:Whiskey Dreams:

You may find this hard to believe, but the whiskey lovers in your life have dreams of a Flaviar Membership dancing in their heads. Anyone who is anyone, knows that a gift from the number one alcohol delivery club is the best gift for whiskey lovers.

A Flaviar Membership is so much more then just getting some alcohol delivered to the front door every quarter. Club members have so many more benefits, and we will touch base on each one of them throughout this article. Sit back and enjoy a cocktail, while I tell you about the benefits.

Benefit Number One:

The first benefit is anyone with a membership, gets a tasting box delivered to them every single quarter. They can also choose a full size bottle of their liking, the tasting box is unique in its self, that you get to try the product before you buy.

There is no other alcohol club or delivery service that offers a try before you buy program. If, you ask me, that is well worth a membership price. I would have loved to have had a service like a Flaviar Membership When I first started drinking alcohol all those years ago. Then I would not have wasted a ton of money figuring out just what I liked the best.

For those of you who have been to this site before, and have read the majority of the articles, you know that my favorite alcohol to drink is Jim Beam’s Kentucky straight Bourbon. Give me a bottle of this any day, and I am in my glory. It does not matter what it is mixed with, I love it. I will even drink Jim Beam straight, or on the rocks. ( over ice ) My favorite way to drink it, is to add some to 7-up with a bit of ice. I do not like room temp whiskey, I prefer it served cold.

Benefit Number Two:

The second best benefit of a Flaviar Membership, is the social events that the club hosts throughout the year. Members get a chance to go mingle with distillers, the people behind all the alcohol that we love so much. Meet the master craftsmen who make the whiskey, there is no extra charge for this.

Then they have tasting events, where you get to go and actually taste the whiskeys that you love, or perhaps discover new and exciting alcohol. That can become a new favorite of yours. And, again there is no extra charge for this tour as well.

Once you check this club membership out, I am positive that you will see the incredible value that there is to offer those who are brave enough to join the club. There is no other whiskey club like Flaviar, absolutely no other. In fact, this is the only whiskey club that I would recommend. There is so much that Flaviar has to offer, we could be here all day telling you about them. We just do not have enough time in the day to get through everything. If, you want to know more, check out my article get a head start on your Christmas list. Don’t worry I have it set, so you won’t lose your place on this article. You can come right back to this spot when you are done with that article.Build Your Bar:

Build Your Home Bar:

With the ability to order a full size bottle every quarter, it gives you as a member to build up your own home bar. I know, you’re saying that you can do this by simply going to the liquor store. you are absolutely right. But, the store is not going to have the members only exclusive releases. The owner of Flaviar works closely with independent bottlers to bring new whiskeys to his club members.

Whiskeys that you will never see in any stores. This gives you the chance to find something new, that no one else in the world will have in their home bar. Just one more benefit to having a Flaviar Membership.

Now, you can stress out, and run from store to store, looking for what you hope is the perfect gift. Or, you can skip stress, and the running around. The best gift for whiskey lovers is right here with a Flaviar Membership.

I promise you, that if you get this club membership for the person in your life, that loves whiskey, or any kind of alcohol. They are going to love the heck out of you. This year, break from tradition from getting them a tie, or a bathrobe. Get adventurous, and give them the gift that keeps on giving for the whole year. When they receive that package on the doorstep every quarter, they will have no choice but to think of you. If it were me getting this gift, I would be running out the door to get you something in return every quarter.

You know that your whiskey lover will do the same thing. Or at least find some other way to show their gratitude to you. If, you follow what I’m saying.

Be A Hero:

This year, be their hero. Instead of getting the same old, same old. Give those whiskey lovers you know, a Flaviar Membership. This way, with how the times are right now, you can stay home and stay safe from this virus that is still hanging around. Plus your loved ones will not have to run out to the store to buy alcohol, and they too can stay safe. I would hate for any of you to end up sick with this virus.

Stay home and stay safe this holiday season, have all of your alcohol delivered to you. ->->->CLICK HERE<-<-<-

The Perfect Gift:Christmas Time:

This is going to sound a bit strange but, do you have someone that loves alcohol? Then you have found the right place to be at.

I just may have a way for you to cross off everyone on your list this year. Yes, that is right I said everyone, at least the ones that enjoy a cocktail from time to time.

I have done the research for you, and this is by far, the absolute best club membership that is out there on the market. You get so much more then alcohol delivered to the door. They have recently done an upgrade to their membership program.

In the past,when you became a member, all they sent you were tasting boxes. Now, you get the tasting boxes every quarter, plus you can get a full size bottle of your choosing sent along with the tasting boxes. Plus there is so much more that they get included with the membership.Flaviar Membership: So, I hope that will stick around for a little while longer, and let me tell you a little bit more.

What You Get:

Besides the above mentioned, included with the membership, you get to attend live tasting events. Flaviar organizes engaging live experiences directly with their network of distilleries, bars, and brands. Exclusively for members. there is also live tastings and blending events. members get to interact directly with brands that they love, as well as discover ones that they do not love. Meet the people behind the drink.

Members also get exclusive invitations to distillery tours.Where they can visit the network of the distillers free of charge. VIP treatment, plus special pricing on products, as well as a unique tasting experience at the distillery. This alone is worth the price of a membership. You will be hard pressed to find another spirits club that offers anything like the experience that is offered from a Flaviar membership..

Believe me, I have checked around myself. And I have not found a better spirits club any where. I spend a lot of time doing research on the internet. I do this so that I can save you some time, as well as some money. And, for everything that you get in a membership at Flaviar, the cost is down right reasonable, if you are asking me any ways.

Who To Give This To:

This is a pretty self explanatory, however, if you need some help deciding, I am here for you. Do you have a father or a father- in-law? Perhaps there is a brother or a sister on your Christmas list this year. Maybe a husband or a wife happens to be on that list. Look I do not know,who is on your shopping list. It does not matter who you are shopping for, if they like to drink, even if it is only once in a while that they like to drink. You owe it to yourself to give them a gift that will keep on giving for the whole year.

Why bother going from store to store, when you can stay at home,where you are perfectly safe from the outside world and this pandemic that is  still hanging on like a sore thumb. Flaviar Whiskey:Everything that you need for a happy holiday is right here in front of you.

Give A Gift That Keeps On Giving A Flaviar Membership:

Do You know someone special, and would like to give them a special gift? If so, this is the perfect place for you to be at now. I have the perfect gift for you to give them.

The Best Gift:

Do you have a special friend, or a significant other that enjoys a cocktail now and then? Are they getting tired of the same old thing? Would you like to give something different, other than flowers and a card. Perhaps they have a birthday coming up, or an anniversary. Or maybe you just want to say thank you for all that they do for you.

Give a gift that keeps on giving, a Flaviar membership. you have never heard of them, that’s crazy. Let me tell you a little bit about them. Flaviar is a free spirited company that believes the exploration of fine crafted spirits should be made available to everyone. Especially to those that have a love of alcohol. There are a lot of companies that offer this same service, but they do not come close to Flaviar.

Flaviar offers their members the best possible craft spirits that are out there. You do not get the same run-of-the-mill alcohol, like a bottle of gin, or a bottle of vodka. Now when you sign up for a Flaviar membership, you get so much more then the average bottle that is on the shelf at your local liquor store. And, to top it off, you do not even need to leave the house to enjoy these fine crafted spirits that you will not find anywhere else.

What You Get:

First things first, when you first sign up, you take a short survey. This is to help determine what types of spirits best suits you or the person you are getting the membership for. Do not skip the survey, it is very helpful. Now that’s out-of-the-way let us get into what you will get with your membership.

Now, you are probably asking yourself, what exactly am I going to get when I sign up. This is the fun part, every quarter ( every three months) you will receive in the mail one tasting box and a premium bottle of your choosing. The tasting boxes which you get to choose contains three 50ml.bottles. That is a darn good deal if you ask me. Plus let us not forget that you also get to choose a full size bottle as well. Remember that these spirits can not be found at your local liquor store.

The founders of Flaviar go above and beyond to curate fine crafted spirits from all around the world for you to try to enjoy. That right there is the value in the membership alone. Then we have to add up all the extra’s that you will get when you sign up. Makes this the best spirits club to join

Full Size Bottles

The Extra’s:

When this spirits club first started out, they did not offer full size bottles. However, due to the ever-changing world of fine spirits they recently improved on the club. you can now order a full size bottle of your choice every quarter. That is four full size bottles and four tasting boxes’s of three 50mi. Bottles a year.

As an added bonus they give you new entertainment from time to time. As well as invitations to members only tasting tours. See how the value just keeps growing? I have not found another spirits club that offers anything close to what Flaviar offers you. If you can find a better value, please feel free to leave me a note in the comments section, and I will revise this article.Flaviar Tours:

Distillery Tours:

To add even more value for being a member, Flaviar offers, free of charge, tours of the distilleries where the craft spirits are born. Plus you get exclusive tastings at the distillery. Do you want even more value? Then they have it, with exclusive live tasting events at the distilleries and bars. Meet the people behind the scenes of your favorite drinks. And discover new spirits that are sure to become your favorites.

There is so much more to come, as the founders continue work hard for you. They simply want the spirit lover in you to have the best experience that you possibly can have. Before I leave you today I have one more thing to share with you. And this could quite possibly be the best value of this membership.

Special Releases:The Vault:

Access their special releases, private bottlings, rare finds and drinks created exclusively for members. Once a month they open the vault and give you access to their private collection of vintage and rare finds, sourced from Kentucky to Tokyo.

Private bottlings, they are always on the hunt for rare inaccessible and elusive barrels. Once these barrels are found, Flaviar then bottles them, and makes them available to all members of this great spirits club. On the last note for today, I will leave you with this.

Moonshine, The Original Craft Alcohol:

MoonshineIn today’s article I hope you gain a certain amount of respect for the process that it takes to legally make moonshine. Remember it is illegal to produce moonshine without a permit.

The First Step:

MASHING IN; Mashing in the process of prepping the ingredients for making the alcohol. You will need cracked corn, water, the amount of water will determine how much alcohol you end up with. You will also need some yeast. The yeast is important, this is what causes the corn to break down. Now you still have not made alcohol. Some people even add sugar for the yeast to feed on.

Now that you have all the ingredients, we are ready to start. Add all the ingredients to the water in a clean container. This help insure you get a clean flavor from the finished product.

Stir everything together, so that it gets mixed well. And the sugar and the yeast does its job the way it should. Continue to stir for one hour and a half, in thirty minute increments. At the end of the hour and a half, it is now time to heat up the mixture. You want to bring the mixture to 150 degrees ferenhight. Also, you should keep stirring the mixture while it is heating up.

Once the mash reaches the 150 degree mark, you want to turn the heat off. The mixture needs to cool down to around 70 degrees. Keep in mind, that you should still stir the mixture every once in a while, as it is cooling. Now that you have the mixture has cooled, it’s time to cover and let it sit for at least two weeks. This is not a quick process, do you have some respect for the distillers yet? I know that I certainly do. By leaving the mixture sit for two weeks, we are allowing the fermentation take place. This is the time that the mixture is making the alcohol, that we all love, and enjoy so much.

The Fermentation:Fermentation Tanks

The tanks shown here are professional tanks, used by legal distillers. If you are making this at home yourself, you probably will not have fancy tanks. You will more then likely be using a bucket or a barrel. At this point I would like to add, that I do not condone the making of moonshine in your home. Or out in your backyard.

Like I said in the above paragraph, fermentation is where the mixture is turning to alcohol. You will know that the process is complete by the froth on top of your container. This will most likely be ready in about two to three weeks. At this point it is time to cook the mixture.

For this step you are going to need a still, and no, I do not sell stills here. If you want to purchase a still, I am pretty sure you can get everything you need at Amazon. I just give you the information about how alcohol is made. You can however get a finished legal product here. ->->-> Click Here <-<-<– There are also plenty of other fine crafted spirits to try.

Cooking The Mixture: Fancy Still

Once the mixture, or mash has been properly fermented, you can start to cook it. transfer the mixture to your still. Obviously your still will not look like this fancy one, which is a professional still used to make bourbon. Now that you have the mixture in your still, turn on the heat. Not to high though, you don’t want to burn the mixture. No one likes burnt whiskey.

After some time you will start to see liquor come out, when it starts to drip 4-5 drops per second, you want to turn down the heat. I personally do not know how long this step takes. I have never made moonshine myself.

The reason being that I have never made moonshine, is that it is not legal to make without a permit. And, if I ever did make some, I would probably use it for fuel in my vehicle. Seeing as how my car can run on, ( E85 ) ethanol, or corn fuel. This is a derivative of alcohol being made.

That’s right ethanol is a by-product of alcohol, and you need be aware of this. It is the first product to come out of the still. Ethanol has been known to cause blindness, as well as some stomach discomfort. You will know what it is by its smell, it has an odor like nail polish remover. You do not want to drink this part of what comes out of the still.

Enjoying The Fruit’s Of Labor:

About thirty percent of what come out of the still is not drinkable. You will know by the smell and taste of the product, and this will take some time for you to learn. The good news is that, once you make it enough times, you will get better at it. Practice makes us perfect. As with anything else in life, the more we do it, the better we get at it.

Making alcohol is a very dangerous process. There are many thins that can go wrong, it is best to leave it to the professionals. Remember I told you that making alcohol is not legal. There are serious consequences if you are caught in possession of unregulated alcohol. You can be hit with high fines, plus you can end up spending some time in jail.

So, if you decide to try to make your own alcohol, don’t say that I did not warn you. You are the one that made the decision to break the law, and you are the one that will have to pay for it. If you would like, you can try moonshine that has been legally made. And you can get it right from here, if you would like. I have provided a way for you to get it delivered to your home. Skip the hassle of trying to make it yourself, unless you are trying out for your own television show.

What Did You Think?

Today’s article, moonshine the original craft alcohol, we talked about how to make your own moonshine. And, yes, I left some things out. I will not be responsible for you breaking the law. How do you think I did explaining the process for you? I would like to hear from you, good or bad. I know that some of you will blast me for this, and some of you will love me for it. Get in touch with me, let me hear your thoughts on the subject, unless you are chicken.

Remember to drink responsibly and please do not drink and drive.

With love: John D.

There’s A New Sheriff In Town,Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey:

For those of you that have visited here before, you know that I like Jim Beam as my favorite bourbon. However, there is another bourbon that I like just as much. And we are going to talk about it today, so kick back and have a drink with me. We have a lot to cover with this article..

Buffalo Trace Bourbon:                                             

The Spirit To Explore:

Ancient age; Buffalo Trace, has been around for many years. This could quite possibly be the first time that you are hearing about it. And that is alright, this bourbon is an 80 proof spirit that has been known for quality. And, now, it is going to get even better then it is. The distiller are using a new process, they will be using a chill filtration system. This new process will improve the color of the bourbon as well as flavor. Giving it an all around taste experience.

AAA 10 Star:

This one weighs in at 90 proof,rye Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. It is by far the most complex bourbon on today’s market. At, 6 years of age,AAA 10 star, has a gentle spice, as well as a licorice attack on the finish, that backs down to intense cream toffee. It is a flavor to be savored by all bourbon enthusiasts. Note, you can only get this particular version in the state of Kentucky.

Tour Information:

Have you wanted to take a tour of a distillery? Consider a trip to Kentucky, and kill to birds with one stone. That’s what I said, Buffalo Trace, as well as Jim Beam, are both distilled in Kentucky. Buffalo Trace offers visitors three distinct tours, year round Monday through Friday 9am-3pm. And, on Saturdays from, 10am-2pm.

The Trace Tour; A journey through the origins of the buffalo trace distillery. Experience a century-old warehouse, walk down the line of the hand bottling hall, where all of the premium bourbon receive some tender loving care before leaving the distillery.

The Hard Hat Tour; This tour takes guests behind the scenes to see where all the magic of bourbon making take place. From the grain delivery, to the cooking process, to the fermentation tanks. You will see it all first hand, this tour is available during distilling season only. Call them for reservations at 1- 800-654-8471.

The Post Prohibition Tour; This tour exposes visitors to the architecture and history of the post- prohibition bourbon industry. The end of prohibition was a new beginning for the distillery. Buffalo Trace distillery survived the prohibition by re-branding their bourbon for medicinal purposes. And, with the appeal of prohibition, Americans were once again thirsty. You can witness the building boom that occurred during this time ( 1930- 1950 ) and get a peek at some future plans that the distillery has in mind. You need to call for reservations for this tour as well 1- 800- 654-8471.Bourbon Barrels

Roll Out The Barrel:

This is what sets Buffalo Trace apart from all other bourbon distillers. While most other distillers use charred oak barrels, Buffalo Trace uses new , clean oak barrels. Giving their bourbon a nice smooth, easy drinking bourbon. Also, as part of their tours, they offer a unique souvenir. You can choose to leave with your very own barrel of Buffalo Trace bourbon. A perfect gift for those who do not know what to get the person that has everything. Take a trip to Frankfurt Kentucky and visit the Buffalo Trace distillery to experience a day of southern hospitality, and leave with the ultimate gift.

Come visit the most awarded bourbon distillery. explore the bourbon region, and discover that there used to be more than two- hundred distilleries that were scattered throughout the landscape of central Kentucky before prohibition. Today, just eight remain. And, each one is as different as the bourbon that they produce.

The Buffalo Trace Cafe`:Firehouse Cafe`

After a day of touring the distillery, take a short walk from the visitors center to Buffalo Trace firehouse cafe`. Where you can enjoy favorite specials like, the E.H. all American sub sandwich. Or, a bung up chicken salad sandwich, or the Elmer T. Lee banana pudding. All while watching barrels of fine Kentucky bourbon roll by. See authentic fire coats, and boots that were worn by distillery worker in 50’s and the 60’s. When the firehouse was in full swing at the distillery. Before you leave the distillery, do not forget take a picture with your friend ,or loved ones, with the 1964 Ford fire truck. How is that for a perfect end to a perfect day?

Just, yesterday my wife asked me what was on my bucket list, you know, the list of things to do or see before you die. And, I told her, a trip to Kentucky to visit the buffalo trace distillery as well as the Jim Beam distillery. I would also like to go to Nashville to see the grand-old o prey. As, well as, visit the Ronnie Kicks vineyard. But, I suppose that these trips will have to wait until the pandemic is under control. And, all of the states allow us to travel freely. Which, should be very shortly, at least we all hope. I know, you all are itching to get back out there, so am I. Have you seen that they are starting close bars and restaurants down again. Does this make you angry? you can not go out for a cocktail or two, and you do not feel like going to the liquor store.  did you know that you can now have alcohol delivered to your door? Yes it is true, you can have alcohol delivered to your home. Don’t believe me, I will prove it to you. Check at the end of this article.

Have A Spirited Day:
I hope that you found today’s topic there is a new sheriff in town buffalo trace Kentucky straight bourbon, interesting. If you did or did not, I want to hear from you. Let me know your thoughts on the article. If you happen to take a trip to the buffalo trace distillery let me know how it is. Have you ever been to any other distillery? I would love to hear about, or any other trip for the matter.

Remember to drink responsibly, and never drink and drive. With love John D.

God bless.

Chill Out With A Frozen Beer: A new trend.

In light of the hot weather that we are experiencing this summer. There is a new trend taking hold this summer, frozen beer. The ultimate adult slushy.

Choose A Beer:

Choose a beer, any old beer will be just fine. Do you have a favorite beer? Well, good you can certainly use it. Now, why don’t we try something new? I mean we are already trying this new trend, why not try a new beer? Like say any one of the new craft beers that are now available.

If you are an old-fashioned person, there is no reason why you can not use the beer that you have been drinking since the beginning of time. Some of us started at a very young age, like myself, I was three years old when I had my first beer. If I can remember the story correct, it was a Coors. That’s the beer that my father always drank. So naturally it became my beer of choice.

These days I like to try other brands, and recently I have been venturing into the craft, or micro brews. And to my surprise, they are quite refreshing. So, the advice that I have for you, is stop being a stick in the mud, and throw caution into the wind. Try a craft beer today.

Freeze It Up:

Freezing your beer can be a little bit tricky, especially if you leave it in the bottle. As most people know, when liquid freeze’s’es it expands. And, as it does this, it wants to escape from the container that it is in. I think you can guess what happens to the bottle now. That’s right the bottle will crack, making the beer undrinkable. Believe me, no one wants to drink beer or any other beverage with shards of glass in it.Wasted Beer:

I recommend that you pour the beer into a plastic or a metal cup. This will allow the beer to expand and the plastic cup will let the expansion happen, with no problem. The plastic will stretch with the expanding liquid. The metal cup will contain the beer and provide a give while the expansion takes place. Meaning the beer will expand upwards, not outwards.

You may be asking yourself, can beer really freeze? Well, yes it can. Beer has enough water content in it to be able to freeze. Go ahead give it a try, don’t be shy.

Keep An Eye On It:

You need to keep an eye on the beer as it is freezing. We do not want the beer to become solid. If you leave it in the freezer for too long it will become a solid. That is not what we want to have happen. You want the beer to become the consistency of a slushy. You know, it’s like when we were kids and going to 7-11 and getting a Slurpee. Remember those? Ice cold refreshment on a hot summer day. unless, you have a machine at home that keeps the beer moving around at a temperature that keeps it from fully freezing.

This is going to require a little work on our part. You can not just put the beer in the freezer and forget about it. it is not a set it and forget process. You want to go to the freezer about once an hour, just to take a look at how much ice is accumulating in the container. Give the beer a stir when you are checking on it. this will help keep it from freezing all the way. Once you have it to where it is partially frozen, you are ready to stick a straw in it and enjoy the ice-cold refreshment. Does this bring back some childhood memories or what? Only, in a more adult sense.Slushy Beer I am sure that this will be a big hit for your next party, or backyard barbecue. Your friends will not be able to stop talking about this one, you big party animal you.

Enjoy The Summer Heat:

Instead of complaining about the summer heat, enjoy it. Last week I gave you a way to keep cool with white wine, this week I have given you a way to beat the heat with a frozen beer. unless of course you have a health condition, where the heat makes it difficult for you to be outside. In wich case, you can still enjoy a frozen beer indoors.

Lately my wife has been yelling at me to spend more time outside, I do not like the heat. The heat and my bad heart do not get along very well. Now that I have a way to cool off, I can spend some more time outside with her and my son who lives with us. So grab life by the horns, freeze some beer, just not all the way. And enjoy some good time with friends and family.

Thank You:

Thank you very much for stopping by today, I really appreciate it. I hope that you have found something here today that is helpful. When I ran across this topic, I said John, you have to share this story with anyone who will listen. And here we are,this is my goal in life , to help as many people that i possibly can. When I find or hear about topics such as this one I will always pass it on to you. Do you have something that you want to hear? Let me know I am happy to assist in order to make life more enjoyable for you. Cocktails are great way to enjoy life if you ask me. That’s just my oppinion though, we have been enjoying cocktails since the beginning of time. And even Jesus Christ our lord turned water into wine once. Atleast that’s the story that is told in the bible. I know not everyone believes in the bible, but I do not want to debate scripture here. if you are looking for that, there are plenty of sites out there.

Remember, please drink responsibly, and please do not drink and drive.

Beat The Heat With White Wine:

Have you noticed that this summer has been hotter than normal? Then sit back and let me help you cool off.White Wine

The Cure For The Summer Blues:

This summer has been a hot one, but that is no reason for you stay cooped up in the house. Everybody has a favorite activity that they love to do. Perhaps you like go boating, or pitch a tent in the woods. Whatever it is that you like to do. don’t let the heat of summer stop you.

Go to the local liquor store and grab a bottle or two of your favorite white wine. Find a comfortable place to park your but, and pour a glass of chilled white wine for yourself and a friend. Just picture it, the two of you sitting on the deck of a boat, or stretched out in a lounge chair somewhere in the woods. You do not even have to leave the house. You can sit in the back yard and enjoy some nice chilled white wine. I know that this weekend I will be enjoying some with the wife in our back yard.

No Place To Go:

Listen, I get it, I really do. This year has been a tough one, with the pandemic. Some places are still restricted, we are not able to travel. But that is just fine, you do not need to go far. You can have a stay cation. I know it is not what any of us wanted for the summer, trust me I had plans of going out of state with the wife for our anniversary in September. Now, our plans have changed. We will be staying somewhere in our home state.

The wife and myself have been looking in the lake George region. We went there a few years back, when we renewed our vows for our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. It was a little place called The Blue Lagoon. Although it is not a resort, just a hotel on the lake. We still were able to sit in some Adirondack chairs and share some wine, while we watched the sun set.Lake Sunset I think this year we are going to stay at an all-inclusive resort on the lake. It all depends on if they offer dinning service at the time we want to go. So, we will see. Wish us luck,won’t you?

Keep The Wine Chilled:

Now, if you want to beat the heat with white wine, you need keep it chilled. Drinking warm wine is not going to help you cool off. How do I keep it cold you ask, if you are staying home keep it in the refrigerator. It only takes one of you to walk back inside for refills.

The other way to keep the wine chilled is to keep it in a bucket of ice. Personally this is my favorite way of doing it. Not only do I not have to get up, and go inside for another glass, but, it looks more romantic. Can you picture it, a bottle of wine nestled down in a bucket filled with ice cubes? That is the stuff that movies are made of. I know now I sound like a sap. I am after all a hopeless romantic. If you ask my wife this, she would more than likely laugh and say not my husband. However, I can be a die hard romantic when I have the urge to be so.

Chilled Wine

Which Wine To Choose:

This can be a tricky situation. Depending on who you talk to. It seems like everyone is an expert on wine these days. My solution to this problem is simple. Try several kinds, then stick with the one you like the best. I am tired of listening to so called experts. No matter what, it all comes down to taste. What you like, not what someone else likes.

I am not saying,don’t’t listen to other people, by all means talk to your friends. See what they like for white wines, and give it a try. If you happen to like it, great. If you do not like it, give another one a try. Keep tasting different white wines until you find one that you enjoy drinking. In today’s market there are so many brands, as well as flavors to try. You could be testing a different white wine every night of the week.

This is what the summer is for, hanging out with friends, kicking back and drinking some ice-cold wine. White wine is made for the summer months. Red wines are more for the colder months if you ask me. So, stop hiding in the house, sitting in front of the air conditioning. Get up, go out, and share some chilled white wine with your friends or family. I know for a fact that they will pay you back ten-fold. You know that Christmas is not far off, if you treat your friends well now. They will treat you well at the holidays. Perhaps they could be showing up on your doorstep with a bottle of something to warm you up, on those cold winter nights. Like a bottle of a nice brandy, but that’s for another story, another time.

Keep Some On Hand:

Since it is summer, we know that eventually someone is going to show up on our doorsteps. It is a good practice to keep some white wine in the ice box. We do not want to disappoint our friends or family, do we? Due to the pandemic this year most of the local bars and restaurants, are still closed. Or are operating at half capacity, but does not mean that we can not get together. I served this great nation of ours, so I will be dammed if they tell me I can not have friend or family over to my own home. I will invite someone who I do not know to have a drink with me. That is just who I am, a giver.

I would like to thank you for stopping by today, I hope that I was able to help you in some way today. Let me know how you make out with your search for a way to, beat the heat with white wine. What wine did you choose? Maybe I would like that one. How did your friends like the wine you chose?

Remember to drink responsibly, and never drink and drive. Love John D.
