Do you ever have one of those years that makes you wonder if you are secretly the star of a sitcom and you just…I don’t know…forgot…or nobody told you, or something? Just me?
This has definitely been my reality of late (okay, it’s been going on for a while now) and I feel like it’s just been a Murphy’s Law extravaganza of comedic error, and I-Love-Lucy-style ridiculousness. Life gets that way sometimes. I just keep reminding myself, hey– at least I’m never bored.
And while that’s true…I do often get distracted, and then I look up one day and realize it’s been TWO ENTIRE MONTHS since I’ve published a blog post. Whoops.
So here I am, just an exhausted mom/business owner/wine aficionada waving at (all 5 of) you from my keyboard, hoping you’ll join me this Friday for our Saint Lawrence Spirits tasting.
If You’ve Read the Casual Wine Taster Blog before, you probably recognize Saint Lawrence Spirits. We’ve invited them to taste here a number of times, and with good reason. They are a New York family owned and operated distillery, and above all we LOVE sharing high quality, locally crafted products with our customers.
My personal favorite is their Empire Cream. It’s made with their Ryesing Tide Whiskey and real cream (from Batavia). Smooth and decadant, this is a fall evening in a glass, especially if you’re like me and don’t much care for pumpkin-spiced-everything.
They’ll be bringing their other fabulous spirits, too. Around here people seem to love the Captain’s Flask bourbon. Saint Lawrence also makes some more interesting offerings, like Downbound Gin, which is barrel-aged, giving it a distinctive, nutty warmth at 114 proof.
Stop by and try it all this Friday, September 20th from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. As with all of our tastings, there is NO CHARGE to attend. Just stop by and sample at your leisure!
We hope to see you there!
