I want that picture. Thank you. Too bad I can't have him. I guess a martini lunch will have to do.

I had no idea vodka could be made from anything other than potatoes.

Great list.

I always seem to forget that gin is made from juniper berries. & then I remember why gin isn't the most pleasant smell around.

You learn something new everyday, that's for sure. Apparently I had no idea where drinks came from. Cool list.

Bourbon. Maker's Mark. All the way!

You have to wonder how man discovered to make some of these drinks.

My hubby works at a winery so I knew some of these. I also saw a show on how they make Tijuana; they bake the agape plant before they squeeze the juice out of it. Apparently it's very sweet that's why it makes great Tijuana.

Happy TT.

vodka is funny stuff. I won't get into my prejudices on vodka, as they were instilled by Russians when I was very young. I have strong opinions about vodka. lol.

We aren't big drinkers here, but I often wonder exactly what the ingredients list for, say, Godiva Liqueur would look like.

Educational, to say the least. LOL ;)
