Dear Vodka, I’m Back!

Vodka Soda

When I started drinking *at the age of 21…* Beer was the answer. Miller Lite to be exact. 25 lbs later I realized beer might not be the best answer for me. So around 23 I switched to vodka…many men later I decided that might not be the best answer either. *Just kidding…kind of*  It was time to be a little more sophisticated. Time to introduce my palate to the finer things in life…Wine. I’ve been a on a wine kick since I was about 26. It’s been amazing. I was the girl that could drink red wine, in the summer, outside, because that’s what I liked. But lately I find myself not enjoying the taste of those lovely little grapes as I used to.  I’ve switched up the type of Red, tried different wineries, but it seems to be more of a miss than a hit for me.

Last night, after much deliberation with Rachel and Mollie, I decided to go back to the vodka. Vodka Soda With Lime (squeezed in…I don’t like the fruit in my drink.) It was crisp & refreshing. It was like seeing a friend I haven’t seen in a while and picking up right where we left off.

Now I’m not saying I’m giving up on wine or beer completely. I’m still going to have those nights that require a glass of cab or those days that a Magic Hat is the only thing that can quench my thirst…however Vodka is OFFICIALLY being reintroduced to my drinking regiment. WELCOME BACK OLD PAL!

    A bottle of Absolut Citron is in the freezer; lemons are in the fridge just waiting for the weekend. Hmmmm, maybe sooner than that. End of hump day perhaps.
