Happy October....what's your poison?

In honor of a new month and the fact that it's Friday and to kick off this glorious season of crunching leaves and cooler days and hay rides and pumpkin patches and crisp apples and all things Fall and to commemorate our blogfriendships and to celebrate everyone's success and to just get a buzz going....(yeah, that's alotta of stuff...)
I thought it was the perfect time to ask you a very personal question......

I like a fancy drink every once in a while, but nothing beats a good scotch and water, McAllan 12 year.

I thought you would like this and would want to share with everyone!

Important Women's Health Issue:

* Do you have feelings of inadequacy?
* Do you suffer from shyness?
* Do you sometimes wish you were more assertive?
* Do you suffer exhaustion from the day to day grind?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask your doctor or
pharmacist about Margaritas.

Margaritas are the safe, natural way to feel better and more confident
about yourself and your actions. Margaritas can help ease you out of
your shyness and let you tell the world that you're ready and willing
to do just about anything. You will notice the benefits of Margaritas
almost immediately and with a regimen of regular doses you can
overcome any obstacles that prevent you from living the life you want
to live.

Shyness and awkwardness will be a thing of the past and you will
discover many talents you never knew you had. Stop hiding and start
living, with Margaritas.

Margaritas may not be right for everyone. Women who are pregnant or
nursing should not use Margaritas. However, women who wouldn't mind
nursing or becoming pregnant are encouraged to try it.

Side effects may include:
- Dizziness
- Nausea
- Vomiting
- Incarceration
- Erotic lustfulness
- Loss of motor control
- Loss of clothing
- Loss of money
- Loss of virginity
- Table dancing
- Headache

- Dry mouth
- And a desire to sing Karaoke

* The consumption of Margaritas may make you think you are whispering
when you are not.
* The consumption of Margaritas may cause you to tell your friends over
and over again that you love them.
* The consumption of Margaritas may cause you to think you can sing.
* The consumption of Margaritas may make you think you can logically
converse with members of the opposite sex without spitting.

Please share this with other women who may need Margaritas.

I'm a wino (red) at heart. But my fun girlie drink is an amaretto cranberry cocktail. I'm not sure of the recipe exactly. I put a couple of shots of amaretto, couple shots of vodka, and fill the rest of the (BIG) glass with cranberry cocktail and lots of ice. YUM!!

Can I have two? I don't drink 'em together, it's one or the other and one week it's the one and the next week it's the other.

The one is a good Shiraz.

The other is a good vodka martini (not dirty) with olives. My hubby makes the best!

It really depends on my mood. Margaritas are my favorite summer drink. I like hurricanes when I'm on vacation. Cosmos are my girl's night out drink. I do like a dirty vodka martini when out at a fancy restaurant. There is this one restaurant that makes awesome homemade sangria so I have to have it when I go there. Ummm, gotta go make myself a drink now.

How come you make every season sound so damn enticing? How come I live on the other side of the world and am coming into spring/summer??? I must go back 6months and read your blogs from then so I feel remotely into it! BTW I'll take any piss I can get but vodka and soda for summer and I nice red for winter. Full stop.

I'm from Maryland so there will always be beer with crabs, but my long time favorite is Bombay Sapphire Gin and Tonic with extra lime - though I haven't tried anything with carbonation since the surgery - I heard I should wait or not do it at all and since there are so many other wonderful choices....

My new favorite is cranberry juice, vodka, and OJ (a madras) but with a splash of peach schnapps. It's out of the world and I'm not usually much for sweet drinks.

Good drinking!

There is NOTHING better than a Champagne drunk on a Sunday afternoon. (NOT Asti, but real, expensive champagne)
Veuve Clicquot, to be exact.
My crazy Aunts drink it by the case!
I usually have an afternoon champagne party, I'm due for one soon. I'll let you know.

I've been crazy busy, so I have to catch up on all your blog posts.
My nephews wedding is this weekend, so I'll finally have my life back!
