small measures with ashley: domestic liquor
I’m what you might call a bit of a “timid” imbiber, when it comes to alcohol. If it doesn’t taste good, I won’t drink it. If it has to be downed in quick shots, it’s not really my gig. If it must be sipped, savored, and consumed with attention to flavor nuance, however, then I’m on board. I’ve allowed myself to be “over-served” only about five times in my life (those Italian Surfers-a fruity blend of Disaronno amaretto, Malibu rum, and pineapple juice-that I sampled at that ’80’s-themed party whilst dressed as Molly Ringwald were lethal!), every time by mistake. I guess you could call me an intentional drinker, appreciating the flavor and aroma of my chosen brew as much as the individuals responsible for crafting it. I really enjoy a well-made cocktail, a hand-crafted ale, and a nicely aged wine, so much so that, in a previous career, I was a sales representative for a distributor of small-production organic wine and beers.
