I used to pride myself decades ago that I could order a beer and get kissed in any language in any country…I can still order a beer anywhere. Even in a dry country. Today, I consider myself a cultured drinker.
A Few of my Favorite Things…Belgium Edition.
A Few of My Favorite Beverages:
A cold Tiger draught beer with salted-nuts in the hot afternoon sun.
A Bombay Sapphire gin n’ tonic after a long day watching an African sunset—sans cucumber please!
An extra extra dry Chopin vodka martini up with a twist before dinner.
A pint of Guinness on a moody rainy Euro-afternoon.
A super Tuscan vin rouge with a charcuterie plate with family and friends.
A mid-afternoon dulce de leche espresso after a museum stroll.
Cold Otokoyama Junmai sake with a sushi lunch.
Flights of Spanish riojas with flights of Spanish tapas.
A bag of sweet Thai iced tea with street food.
A crisp bottle of pinot grigio and some seafood seaside.
Shots of chilled Russian vodka with spoons of caviar.
A true chocolat chaud and croissant in a Paris café.
A tart caipirinha at a beachside kioscos overlooking Rio harbor.
Liquid Candy…and, Perfection and Grace.
Cheers! Prost! Salute! Kanpai! Na Zdorovie! Santé! Fa Sahetek! Skoal! Cin-cin! Ganbei! L’chaim! Bottoms up!
