Before I start, I just wanna acknowledge that I know many people suffer from alcoholism or the victims of an alcoholic person. I am not in any way supporting that type of addiction, or any destructive addiction of any kind.
With that out of the way. I wanted to talk to this community about alcohol.
Living in Wisconsin means you're surrounded by alcohol being the state with a high, if not the highest, alcohol consumption in the US. Alcohol is not just a substance here, it's a way of life and a huge part of the culture. Since moving here I have come to know drinks, and how to drink them. I have discovered Old Fashioned, whiskey type is my favorite, Brandy, and the various locally brewed beers.
Last year I discovered my love for Mead. I love just how versatile that drink is. You can drink it cold or room temp with your food or snacks, or warm it up for a nice sweet dessert drink, It also mixes very well with other drinks, like beer and apple cider, something I learned from @meierthered.
I also really like Absinthe. The real one. Not the fake kinds you find here in the US. Unfortunately it means I only order once a year at best since it costs a lot to import it from EU.
I would love to hear your input on the subject.
Do you drink? What's your favorite drink, or cocktail? What are some unique alcoholic beverages you tried that you won't find in normal liquor stores or houses?
