Not money! Fifteen million dollars. Money is what you take to the grocery store. It’s what you get out of an ATM. Fifteen million dollars isn’t money. It’s a motive with a universal adapter on it. — Joe Sarno (James Caan), The Way of the Gun

Girlie Drink of the Week…

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 in BOOZE!!

…Or how the mighty have fallen.

I have always made fun of the fact that my inlaws drink boxed wine. And I still do, because they do not drink for taste but for alcohol content. Seriously, during our last visit, they *ahem* “uncorked” a couple of boxes and they were kinda vinegary.

Don’t worry. They didn’t let it go to waste.

Anyway, my wonderful SIL, Twin’s wife, was wondering if we wouldn’t mind trying a particular boxed wine they had found at their local spirits store. Trust me, it couldn’t be worse than what my inlaws were imbibing, so I told her most definitely. Because you see, she has been a wine taster and knows her stuff.

PINOT EVIL!!!! Get it??

The name alone sold me on it, but truthfully, it is a light pinot noir and very easy to overindulge. I take back everything I ever said in my generalizations of boxed wine. In my defense, all I had to go on was the stuff my inlaws steep in.

Best part? No cork! Second best part? Spigot! Third best part? Hubby can serve me ;)

    Does it come from those diabetic monkeys on the front of the box? Spiking koolade is cheaper.

    Dear Santa,
    This year, please bring wine glasses so mommy doesn’t have to drink her wine straight from the box anymore.
