College Life Is Going To Kill Me

So this might not count as a real review or anything but I guess I can at least try to spice it up a little.  All day I've been working on getting stuff in the new house straightened out and doing stuff with school.  Fortunately I've managed to make my schedule for next semester and lock in my classes before they became full.  Another fortunate thing is that with all this additional stress I'm going to endure in the spring, much liquid assessment will be required.  There are some special brews that come out locally only available in Spring and of course there are all those wonderful cocktails perfect for the beginning of the warmer months.

Right now, I'm just waiting for the Beaujolais Nouveau to come out so I can do a review on that.  Chill, drink a beer, and put on some early 90s industrial rock.  NIN - Sin,  this is a good example.

Here's another drink cocktail to get you quickly into the holiday spirit.  I made it for a close friend of my wife and I, and the egg white may seem a little odd, but it makes a creamy softness that cannot be replicated by any other measure.

Frilly Lace Panties
• 1½ oz Pearl Pomegranate Vodka (or Smirnoff Cranberry Vodka)
• 1 oz Heavy Cream
• ½ oz Rumpleminz 100 proof Peppermint Schnapps 
• ½ oz Grenadine Syrup
• 1 Egg White

Fill in a shaker with cracked ice.  Shake vigorously until well incorporated and frothy.  Pour into a poussé-café glass or a martini glass rimmed with red sugar.  Garnish with cherry if desired.

Bon Boire!

  6. oh snack! we can totally help each other out, i wonder if there is a way that i could let you write articles under my wine blog, like any way to make you an admin or mod? i know with wordpress its cake, but i dont know much about how blogger works. i wonder about revenue sharing, i could always return the favor and write articles for you also.
