What are you drinking right now?

This reminds me that my apple spiced wine should be about ready to drink now.
Is that an apple wine that is spiced? Or a spiced and apple flavored (grape) wine?

I went to an all women birthday party over the weekend at a casino. Anytime we were near a bar- we did shots of fireball. It was much smoother than I expected. Loved it! 10/10 will try again. MUCH better than jaeger's.

Some teas I ordered from Vietnam arrived yesterday while I was at work. I'll probably open one of them to try tomorrow since I've got the day off and I'll be able to appropriately ooh and aah over it instead of slamming it down before heading to work. I'm getting into tea and still the giddy nerdy stage and have already exhausted my wife's patience. So you guys get to be the target of my gushing. :D

Day later edit: I tried one of the teas, a breakfast blend. It's rich and malty with hints of the chocolate and smoky oxidized leaf note that makes me think pipe tobacco (not a smoker so I'm not sure why that comes to mind). It has a nice brisk astringency that makes you want to go back for another sip. I could see it being my workday morning tea if I can can find the perfect balance for just brewing a single cup (the way I did it the first time lets you get multiple infusions but I don't always have the time or the wont to drink multiple cups of tea before work to justify the amount of tea used).

I am printing that, Just This Guy. That looks delicious, and I want to make it!

4 cups apple cider
1/3 cup apple brandy
1/8 tsp cinnimon
Dash Alspice
Dash Nutmed
Dash ground cloves
2 tablespoons spoons caramel (I got a maple caramel which is really good)

Mix all ingredients except caramel in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, add caramel. Heat, stirring occasionally, until hot and caramel has dissolved, about 3-5 minutes. Serve immediately. Serves 4-5.
Perfect! Thank you.
There are 2 Gods. One who created us. The other you created. The God you made up is just like you-thrives on flattery-makes you live in fear.

Believe in the God who created us. And the God you created should be abolished.
