Champagne Cocktails To Toast The New Year: For Good Luck.

Well here we are at the end of another year, and what a year it has been. We started the year 2020 with a good start, then in the third month everything got turned upside down on us all. We are Americans, and we persevere. We get stronger and keep going. We find ways to keep this country of ours that we love going and make it stronger than it was before. They can kick us down, but they can’t keep us down for long. As we close out this year, let us reflect on the positive, as well as look forward to a new beginning. Last year hit us with a bomb, but we fought and are now in the winners circle. Now that there is a vaccine, perhaps this year will see brighter days. To close out the year, we here at love of spirits are having one last sale. This sale is live as of today, and will remain in affect until this Sunday the third. You can get $10.00 off of any purchase of $30.00 or more.->->-> CLICK HERE<-<-<- FOR MORE DETAILS. And remember to use code NEWYEAR10 at the checkout.

Remember that all the alcohol listed in these cocktails is all on sale. That is not even the best part, depending on where you live you could get everything delivered to your home in about one hour. That means that you do not have to run out to the store for supplies.

Plus if you have other party needs such as snacks, or even ice you can have this delivered to you as well. I know, hard to believe is’nt it? It is much safer to stay home with a small group of friend and or family, and have a couple cocktails. Then to go out to a bar or a club this year. Plus most states still have restrictions in place, so bars are closing at 10 pm.

You then have to rush home to have a toast with what you have on hand. So, why not just click the link, stay home and have the party there. Much safer this way No worries about getting a DWI or a DWUI.

Remember to drink responsibly and never drink and drive. The life you save may very well be your own. Have a safe and happy new year my friends. Sincerely: John D. Have a blessed new year.

And with it, the virus is making it’s way back around as well. It is my intention to help you stay safe and keep healthy. We all need to do our part to flatten the curve. The best way to that is to stay indoors, especially since it is flu season on top of everything else. The flu is another virus that kills people as well as covid 19. No one is immune to either of these two viruses. My advice is to stay home and drink with friends and family that we know who are not infected.

If you would like to participate in this sale, remember to use code OCT8 when you check out. That is all you need to get the $8.00 discount. Chances are that next weekend, we will have another 3 day site wide sale $8.00 off $30.00 or more for new customers. However, I can not guarantee that it will happen. Act now while you still can.

Have A Great Weekend:

Please remember to drink responsibly, and never drink and drive. The life you save may very well be your own. Sincerely; Your friend John D. Have a blessed weekend friends.

RED Meat; Red Wine, Seafood; White Wine:

Have you ever wondered what type of wine to serve with the meal that you have made? If this is new to you, it can be a little intimidating, so I would like to help clear this up for you in today s topic. Red meat, red wine, seafood white wine. I hope you find this article helpful.

Red Meats:Steak And Red Wine

When you are having red meat with dinner, steak burgers, meatloaf, any red meat, typically you would want to serve a red wine with this meal.

Now if you are new to drinking wine, I would suggest that you start with a Merlot. Try to stay away from a Cabernet Sauvignon. The Merlot will offer you much better drinking experience. This is due to it’s low tannin levels, what causes the drying effect in the mouth. The Cabernet Sauvignon has a high level of tannins. This usually causes people to stop drinking wine.

I myself would love for you to continue to drink wine, and explore some different one from time to time. Our lives are too short to get stuck on the same old things.

Seafood:

Now, we are getting to the sweeter side of life. When you are planning on having a seafood feast, it is best to offer a white wine to your guests. For me it does not matter what white wine you choose. All the ones that I have tried have had a sweet taste to them. I take that back, I have had one that was on the dry side. And for the life of me, I can not remember which wine it was. When it comes to white wine, I tend to go with a muscoto.

Seafood And White Wine:

A muscoto for me, brings out the briny flavor of the seafood. And helps me to enjoy the seafood a lot better. If you are not into a sweet wine, then you can explore other white wines to have with your seafood feast. After all, there are a ton of wines on the market. I am not trying to be pushy, but, did you know that you purchase wine from this site and have it delivered to front door. Depending on where you live, you can get it delivered within about a one-hour time frame.

By the way, if you want to know more about the effects of tannins in red wines you should check out my article buying wine you don’t need to be an expert. Keep in mind that if you happen to purchase anything from this site, I do make a small commission from the sales.

Surf And Turf:

For those of you who do not Know what surf and turf is, this is a term used to describe when a combination of meat and seafood is paired together. Now, this where things get a little tricky when choosing a wine to have. I say it is your lucky day, you get to have a glass of both, red and white wine.

You can always do what I do when I’m having a surf and turf meal. That is to have a whiskey cocktail, and forget the wine all together. A few years ago, the wife and I went to Main for a weekend. While we were there, one of the nights we decided to have dinner at the Weathervane seafood restaurant. I love seafood, and the wife can not stand it. So, when we ordered our meals, I decided to order a margarita with my meal. I believe that I ordered a fisherman s platter, and was not in the mood for a glass of wine. Both of us, my wife and myself did not want wine with our meals that night. Don’t ask me what she had for the meal, or for her cocktail, I can’t remember.Surf And Turf:

Your choice:

You can whatever type of wine that you like, with whatever meal that you like. It was my intention to clear up the basic pairing of food and wine for you. It all comes down to your personal preference. If you like red wine better than white wine, then by all means drink red wine with seafood, and vise versa, drink white wine with red meats.

Lets no forget about chicken, and pork products. These are meats that I typically serve white wines with. You don’t have to follow what I do, you can do what you want. It is just my opinion on what wines to pair with what meals. Pizza is defintely one of those foods that you can have either white wine, or red wine with it. Generally speaking, when I am having pizza, like tonight, I will have a beer with it. That is just what I like to have with my pizza. Beer or a red wine, is my prefference with pizza.

Red meat red wine, seafood white wine, is the standard for those food pairings. However, this is America, and we can do whatever we want, within reason. Alwaye keep what you do within the right side of the law.

Three Day Sale Starts Today: have your alcohol delivered.

Just in time for the weekend, we are having another sale. Anything that you purchase between today and Sunday, you will get an $8.00 discount, on any orders of $30.00 or more. This is for new customers only, to get the discount all you need to do is use code SEPT8 at the checkout. It is that simple my friends.

What Is On Sale:Booze

I know this sale comes at a short notice, I just found out about it myself today. You want to know what is on sale, sometimes when we have these short notice sales, there are a limited amounts of items for sale. Not this time.

Everything on the site is for sale. Beer, Wine, Whiskey, Bourbon, you name it, it is on sale for this weekend only. So, do not delay after Sunday the deal will be gone and the sale will be over.

Everybody likes to save, I know that I do. And, I also know that you as well like to save. Let’s do both of us a favor, and get stocked for the holidays. I make it easy for you too.

Convenience:

What do I mean by convenience? Here is what I mean, I do not know if you know that you can have any alcohol on the site delivered to you at your home. That’s what I said, you get the alcohol delivered right to your front door.

Did you ever think that one day alcohol delivery would be possible? I know I did’nt, I never thought that in a million years that we could get alcohol delivered to me at home. I mean geese, back in the 80s we could’nt even get a pizza delivered to our house. We did however live out in the sticks, way out in the boonies as some people like to say.Alcohol Delivery

In today s time of unrest, with this pandemic still in the balance, you are better off staying home, and friends and family come over the house for some cocktails, and some food. Now you do not have to worry about going to the store, and wondering, am I going to catch this virus from someone, or something that they touched.

Stay safe:

With the uncertain time that we are living in, it is better to be safe than sorry. This is the reason why I am trying to help you, by promoting this sale. I do not want see you get this nasty virus, this thing is causing people to die. And, yes that is still happening. People are still dying from this pandemic, you may not seeing it on the news every night now. But every once in a while the media tells us that numbers are decreasing, and that some are still dying.

Believe me or not, just because the death rate is at a low, does not mean that we are out of the woods just yet. I do not want to see you get sick and die. I want you to stick around and party for a long time. I like to party, and want the party to continue, long after I have left God’s green earth. I plan on continuing the party even when I get to heave, or maybe when I fall to hell.

So, who wants to keep the party going with me? Heaven Can wait:Like I said even when I’m dead and gone, I will still be having a party no matter where I am. Can I get an AMEN?

How to Keep Going:

You think that I am going to tell you how to live longer, no. I will say this, happy people tend to live longer than people who are grumpy all the time. Those of us who drink on a regular basis tend to be on the happy side of the fence.

I don’t know about you, but those of you who have visited this site, have come to know me a little bit. You know that at the end of a long day, I like to kick back with a nice cocktail and relax with the family. Anyone in my family knows that I do not like to go out in public that much. My family pretty much has to drag me out of the house most days. Once they get me out, they know that I like to have a cocktail or two, as long as I do not have to drive. I am usually the designated driver on most family outings. That would be the reason why I do not like to leave the house.

I firmly believe that this pandemic has been a blessing in disguise for me. Now I get to stay home being safe from the virus, and being able sit back and relax with a cocktail or two. All that I want to do is keep you safe, and help you to have a good time. Life is too darn short to not enjoy ourselves once in a while, don’t you think so? all that you need to do to get this deal is to ->->-> CLICK HERE <-<-<- choose whatever you like to drink. You can also order snacks from here and have them delivered along with your alcohol. It just does not get any easier than this for you. Don’t worry, when click any of the links on any of the articles on this site, they open a separate tab and you can return here where you left off, I have made sure of this for you. While you are here, you should check out some of the other article. There are some really great cocktail recipes for you to try with any of the alcohol that you may purchase from here.

I am not saying that you have to get stinking drunk, you can have one or two and still be the life of the party. After all we are not kids anymore are we? I know I’m not, I no longer drink to get drunk, I drink to have a good time and still know I go to bed with. I hope that you are the same way.

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.

Red Wine A Better Choice For Your Health:

Good day friends, I am happy that you stopped by today. I am going to be discussing red wine a better choice for your health. I hope you find the article helpful as well as informative.

Why Is Red Wine Healthy:

Red wine contains a key ingredient called resveratrol. This particular ingredient is what makes red wine healthy for your heart. Along with antioxidants. When drank in moderation, has been thought to aid in the prevention of coronary artery disease. This condition can lead to a heart attack.heart healthy

Any links between red wine and fewer heart attacks are not yet understood. However, part of the benefit might be that the antioxidants in red wine, may increase the levels of high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ( the good cholesterol) and protect against cholesterol build up. Doctors do not recommend that you start drinking alcohol for your heart health. Especially if you have a family history alcohol addiction. Too much alcohol can have many harmful effects on the body.

However, if you already enjoy a glass of red wine with your evening meal, drinking it in moderation seems to be helpful for your heart. If you ask me, another benefit of red wine is, it can help your love life. But that is just my oppinon.

Resveratrol In Red Wine:

Resveratrol might help prevent damage to the blood vessels, and reduce low-density lipoprotien (LDL) cholesterol ( the bad cholesterol) and prevent blood clots. This is a vary good thing, I wish I knew about this years ago. Maybe I would not have had a heart attack back then. Oh well, live and learn, that’s what we always say is it not?

However, studies on resveratrol are mixed. Some research shows that resveratrol can help lower the risk of inflammation and blood clotting. Which can lower the risk for heart disease. But other studies found no actual benefit from resveratrol in preventing heart disease.

More information and research is needed to see if resveratrol can help lower the risk of inflammation and the clotting of the blood.

Resveratrol In Grapes And Other And Other Foods:Red Grapes

The resveratrol in red wine comes from the skin of grapes used to make red wine. Because red wine is fermented with grape skins longer than white wine is, red wine contains more resveratrol.

If you are not into drinking alcohol, eating grapes or drinking grape juice may be a way to get resveratrol in you without drinking alcohol. But if we were’nt drinking alcohol, we would not be here on this site. After all we are here to talk about alcohol,are’nt we?

Peanuts, blueberries and cranberries also contain some resveratrol. It is not yet known how beneficial eating grapes or other foods might compare with drinking red wine when it comes to promoting heart health. The amount of resveratrol in foods and red wine can vary widely. Now if you ask me, I would say, just drink the red wine and enjoy life.

Supplements with resveratrol are also available. Researchers have not found any harm in taking resveratrol supplements, but your body can not absorb most of the resveratrol found in the supplements. So again, just have a glass of red wine.

How Might Alcohol Help The Heart:

There is still no clear evidence that beer, white wine or liquor are not any better than red wine for heart health.circulatory system Various studies have shown that moderate amounts of all types of alcohol benefit your heart health, not just the alcohol found in red wine. It is thought that alcohol:

1: Raises HDL cholesterol ( the good cholesterol )

2: Reduces the formation of blood clots.

3: Helps prevent artery damage caused by LDL cholesterol ( the bad cholesterol)

4: May improves the function of the layer of cells that line the blood vessels.

Drink In Moderation, Or Not All:

The potential heart benefits of red wine and other alcoholic beverages, look promising. People who drink moderate amounts of alcohol, including red wine, seem to have lower risks of heart disease. However, it is important to understand that these studies comparing moderate drinkers, to nondrinkers, might oversee the benefits of moderate drinking because nondrinkers may already have health problems.

More research is needed to be done, before we know the effects of red wine and others drinks like beer, and hard liquor. The American Heart Association as well as the National Heart, Lung, and Blood institute do not recommend that you start drinking alcohol for the sole purpose of preventing heart disease. Alcohol can become addictive and can cause or worsen health problems. Drinking too much alcohol puts you at risk for other issues.

1: Liver and pancreas disease

2: Heart failure, were trying to prevent heart attacks, not cause them.

3 High blood pressure.

4: certain types of cancer.

5: strokes.

6: Accidents, violence and suicide.

7: Weight gain and obesity.

Now i have to say the following for legal sake. Avoid alcohol if you are pregnant, have a personal or strong family history of alcohol abuse. Have a liver or pancreas disease associated with alcohol use. Have heart failure or a weak heart, like I do and just don’t listen. And, or you take certain medications, check with your doctor or pharmacists.

If you already drink red wine a better choice for your health, drink in moderation. This means for most adults, one glass a day. This varies by your age and how much you weigh. For most of us we can handle two glasses of wine a day. Let’s face it if there are two of us sharing a bottle, we are going to finish the entire bottle. You darn well know that the bottle is not going to put in the refrigerator.

As always, please drink responsibly and please do not drink and drive. Remember I do not going to funerals, I am tired of seeing my friends being laid to rest. Then not having them there to share a drink with. And of course always remember that I love you

Sincerely: John J Denekar II Thank you for stopping by today. God bless.

use of alcohol with diabetes:

Today I would like to talk about the use of alcohol with diabetes, as well as the effects it has on the body. Please keep in mind that I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV.

WHAT IS DIBETES:finger stick

Diabetes is a disease, where the body can no longer produce insulin, or produce enough insulin. This causes the body to not be able to process sugar the way it is meant to do. There is two types of diabetes.

First, there is type one diabetes. Type one is where you develop diabetes at an early stage in life. Sometimes we are born with it. This is a lifetime journey with the disease.

Second is type two, this is when we develop the disease later in life. Usually as a result of our diet and the lack of exercise. Go figure we work all day, go home and have a nice relaxing drink, and our reward for this, is a nasty little disease called diabetes. Yes I said nasty, because of what this disease does to the body, in which it causes havoc on all the organs. And we have to constantly check and regulate the blood sugar levels. We will get into the effects later in this post. Next you probably want to know if you can use alcohol with diabetes. So I am going to answer this question for you, sit back grab a drink and relax while I answer you.Heavy Beers

Use of alcohol with diabetes:

Can we use alcohol with diabetes, this is the big question for today, drum roll please, yes we can use alcohol with diabetes. We just have to be cautious, and use some restraint. What do I mean by restraint? Simple do not sit there and drink a twelve pack, have two or three.

Plus there are some changes that we can make that will allow us to enjoy the use of alcohol with diabetes. Let us touch base on two of those changes now. The first change we can make is switch to a light beer. Stop laughing, in today s market there are a lot of flavorful light beers available for purchase. The biggest thing we have to look out for is total net carbohydrates. Guess what, carbohydrates are in all the stuff we love to eat. You know, like bread products, rice, and also those nice sweet white wines that everyone loves to sip on at the end of a long day. However, there is good news. Like I said switching to light beer is a step in the right direction. For me, I have started drinking Michelob ultra. I find it to be a full-bodied beer, that is very refreshing. I am more than likely going to have one after I am done writing this article.

Red, Red Wine:

Red wine with friendsFor those of us that enjoy a nice glass of wine with friends, at the end of a long day. Switching to a red wine verses a white wine is a better use of alcohol with diabetes. Me personally, I have always liked red wine over white wine. I have always felt that white wine is too dry for my taste. Plus red wine has more benefits for your health than white wine does. What benefits do you say?

First off red wine is rich in antioxidants, this is real good for the blood stream. It helps enrich the blood with oxygen. Red wine is also good for the cardiovascular health. Meaning that is good for the heart. And the best benefit of red wine is that it has fewer of those nasty little carbohydrates. Red wine also helps the blood vessels get oxygen rich blood throughout our bodies. Keeping the veins open can lower blood pressure, as well as help reduce the risk of having a heart attack. Trust me you do not want that. Take it from someone who has been there and done that. Alright it is getting close to quitting time. And I promised to talk about the effects of the use of alcohol with diabetes.

 

Affects diabetes has on the body:

Live HeartHaving diabetes has several effects on our bodies. I compiled a list for you, as of my knowledge. Remember I am not a doctor   nor do I play one on TV.

1: diabetes causes issues with the eys, loss of site is possible if we are not careful with our sugar levels.

2: CAD ( coronary artery disease) Too much sugar in the blood stream causes clotting, and can lead to a heart attack.

3: abnormal sugar can cause problems with our livers, like we need that when we’e already causing that problem from drinking alcohol.

4: Kidney disease, Diabetes is known to shut down the kidneys. Then we have to go on dialysis. Nobody wants to go to a hospital a couple of days a week, and be hooked to a machine to filter out our kidneys.

5: Loss of limb, ( a leg, arm, or toes) usually it starts with the doctors removing one or more of your toes.

I’m sure that there are a whole slews of other problems that diabetes can cause. But this is not a medical site, after all this is a place for alcohol. I just wanted to inform you that we can use alcohol with diabetes. We just need to make a few changes.in our drinking habits

Don’t Worry Be Happy:

I don’t want you to worry about the use of alcohol with diabetes. If we do nothing but worry, we will never live. Life is more fun when we sit back and enjoy a cocktail or two now and then. Please remember every thing in this site are the views of the owner of the site. That is me. All that I want for you, my readers is to have some fun, and enjoy life as much you possibly can. Before I leave you I want to add, that if you have diabetes, and you decide to have a cocktail or two, you should consider eating something before or during your drinking. This will aid in low blood sugar, that can send you to the hospital.

As always please be safe out there, don’t drink and drive. Drink responsibly.

Love always: John D. And god bless.
