Paradigm Sip n: the historically correct way of drinking a certain liquor.

elizablr:

As in:

Scotch: with a splash of water

American whiskey: on the rocks

Gin: shaken with ice and a little vermouth, strained into a cocktail glass

Rum: with coconut water, rocks

Brandy: at room temperature in a sherry glass (not a snifter)

Tequila: neat

Vodka: with food

Not to brag…

…but I am a lucky, lucky girl. I just got home from happy hour ($1 beers huh??) and found a package sticking out from under our door. The contents?

A full itenerary for my “birthday weekend getaway” to lake geneva, wisconsin. Including: gorgeous accomodations, brunches, dinners, wine (lots of wine), sauna, hot stone massage, shopping, and amazing quality time with my future hub.

One of my favorite holiday traditions in Chicago-happy hour at Butch McGuire’s after their ceiling is covered in cheer! Complete with an electric train circling the bar :)

That said, I will not stop watching.

About

Welcome! Grew up in Missouri, but now call Chicago home. A few of my favorite things are wine, cooking, my amazing friends, family, the boyfriend, and the cat (obviously). I prefer day drinking to staying up until 4am. Manners are a must. I love college sports. I probably watch too much tv (especially the trashy VH1 kind). I hate confrontation. This is a place for all of my randomness. You can reach me at cackipants at gmail dot com.
