Not quite sure how this became "a thing", but now it is. Every Friday afternoon we meet up at Mom's for a few. At first it was a Wisconsin classic, brandy and 7,
I like it! Not a bad way to spend time with the family. When I see "brandy and 7" I first think of a "7 and 7" which for me was always a Seagram's and 7 Up. I HATE gin but this was always a drink I really enjoyed. Very fresh and "spritzy" for lack of a better made up word. A sweeter version of a Gin Tonic, and a wonderful spring / summer treat. I haven't had one in ages. I'm a bit low brau, and brandy is my preferred slope side drink during the winter (aside from beer). No cognac for me, just a bit of brandy to warm the innards on the lift ;)
The first time I got majorly drunk was with screwdrivers, it took me years after that to be able to drink orange juice.
My first time was at university. Shots. I still remember the series that put me over - cheap tequila and a few drops of tabasco, I think I had two (this was after *ahem* a few other shots as well). The next morning was the most horrific and painful hangover I've ever had. Never even come close to that morning. I was supposed to go to a gun show (LOL! Things I never thought I'd do, nor ever have! Yes I was a Northerner at a Southern school ;) ). Never made it, spent the day in bed. I'm sure the toilet was thankful when I recovered two days later LOL!
