I’ve never really been a hard drinker. I’ve enjoyed rum & Coke or vodka & oj in the past. But a few years ago a friend introduced me to Gin & Tonic.
I’m no connoisseur of hard alcohol. But I do enjoy Bombay Sapphire. I’ve had an unopened bottle for a few months now and a part of me doesn’t want to open it. Another part wants to have a crazy night and get “Gin Drunk”. Neither will happen.
I’ll probably break open the bottle by Easter for a drink or two. Then save it for a cool down during the hot summer months. It’s nice to know that I have the ability to control myself unlike my crazy youth.
Probably more the fact that hangovers as an adult in your forties suck.
