What are you drinking right now?

Just about to settle down with some coffee and NOM conference reporting. (I'm very grateful for those who start conference threads, especially since I finally have zero interest in actually tuning in to the series itself.)
I'm glad you like the NOMfrence threads!! (Hugs)

I am obsessed with these and drinking them all the time right now:

Oliver Winery Gewürztraminer 2017. It's my second serious attempt at trying to figure out wine after an initial ill fated run-in with a tetra-pack Cabernet from Target. Kinda interesting taking it with a tasting notes approach rather than my first, "I wonder what gone bad grape juice tastes like?" I could see how one could really get into this, you start picking out things like rose, lychee, honey, and even a perfumey incensey quality. iI's certainly more complex than just alcoholic Welch's. Of course it's make sense that would appeal to me, it's one of the things I love about whiskey the sheer novelty and variety you can find in them.

Don't think it'll be replacing whiskey as my cerebral drink any time soon but it's nice to have a back up. I bought a Shiraz at the same time so we'll see what I think of a bold red when I get around to it.

Tried the Shiraz... not a huge fan. It's palatable but the disconnect between the super fruity nose and what comes across to me as a mouth full of tartness and tannins to me is kinda... meh. So in short, love the smell, not a fan of the taste. I'll be sticking to whiskey and beer I think.

MoPag, I can't see their names (brand, kind). So far, I've not bought coffee in bottles like that. Will you please tell me the brand and kinds they are? I might be interested in trying them.

(I tried Starbucks coffee once; it was like drinking syrup that had three times too much sugar in it.)

Right now, I'm drinking homemade white wine one of my daughters made almost a year ago. Definitely has a buzz to it.

Trying some Mexican ground from a little yellow brick package I picked up at Dollar Tree.

Sounds like Cafe Bustelo based on the description.

They are the Starbucks frappuccinos.

I started off just sipping the vanilla. I've also tried caramel, salted caramel, and mocha. I like salted caramel the best.

I love these. I travel sometimes for work and one of my co-workers in another state bought me two six packs for the week I was there working. By the end of the week, I could have sworn it was coming out of my pores. My skin felt super moisturized too! :lol:

Very unhappy with Costco ... they changed the supplier for their Kirkland brand spiced rum. It's no longer "St. Croix". It's made by Sazerac in Kentucky and it is just....blech...in comparison.
