    Looks like the folks on this forum are a bunch of mukkety-mucks compared to us.

    Almost all of our friends drink beer or wine ..... and not expensive wine ..... the cheap plonk that goes on sale at the local Co-Op.

    Our pathetic liquor shelf holds one Bombay, a Bacardi, a Smirnoff, one Crown Royal, some schnapps and a bottle of high end rum. No fancy martini mixes or high alcohol syrup fixins.

    c'est du l'alcool haut-de-gamme

    prenons une charlotte russe. Buttery ladyfingers or pound cake layers drenched in wild blackberry 94% alcohol liqueur. Thick whipped cream the same. Topped with fresh raspberries. A few toasted almond or dark chocolate shavings. There's more alcohol content in one dessert serving than a stiff drink.

    c'est qui la personne qui s'occupe de la cuisine chez toi? faut expliquer le ci-haut tout de suite, c'est divin
