We arrived for dinner at some friend’s house around 6:30, upon entry we were ‘greeted’ by Mickey Moose. A large 10-point moose head that they had caught up north a few years back. It was freaking huge. And in the front hallway, on the floor. We joked that he’d make a great coat-rack.
Dinner was lovely, the evening was even catered!! We drank copious amounts of champagne and wine and laughed and laughed and laughed.
After the gorgeous deserts a bottle of Louis XIII was brought outt. Now, I’m not a liqueur drinker – but I couldn’t resist the chance to try the most coveted of all cognac – Remy Martin Louis XIII. At more than $4000 retail a large bottle (usually it sells for $200-$250 a glass at restaurants) I felt sort of guilty, but I must be honest – it was a sinfully delightful “guilty” pleasure. I might have had 2 (or three) glasses, I had to tell myself when would I ever have the opportunity again to tryit?! 🙂
I now understand what “smooth” means in reference to liqueur . . . .
