Old Alcohol At My House!

So, last week Emily stopped by to see the house. (My girls are busy @ school and had yet to have an opportunity to see the new house).
She brought her Bestie, Tony.
At one point she teased me about the bottles of alcohol I have at the house and told Tony that we keep our alcohol forever and that she could probably take it without us noticing (she'll be 21 in a couple of months). She was particularly mean (jk~Em)about my Patron bottle in the freezer. I have a couple of ounces left. I have had it for a couple of years ~ with just that big shot left.

So, this past Friday, in anticipation of the girls coming on Saturday, I decided to have a little drink. My choice of poison was Bailey's and coffee. I was looking forward to it. I made the coffee, then poured a nice little shot in. Something wasn't quite right. It smelled heavenly, but looked...nasty. It was clumping in my cup! This Baileys can't be bad! I just cracked open the seal! In inspecting the label I spied "BEST IF DRANK BEFORE MAY 01. May 01? Oh My Gosh! MAY 2001? How embarrassing! It is freaking eight years old!!!! No, older. If drank BEFORE 01, I probably had it a year or so prior! Ok Emily. You are right. My alcohol is old! Maybe, I need to inspect my liquor cabinet and toss some other bottles out. I can start over:)

This made me laugh out loud. My husband regularly drinks whiskey but I am not a drinker at all. I liked a glass of wine especially with a nice meal but dreaded gout has put an end to that also.

I also like (and can still drink it) a glass of liqueur. I usually buy myself a bottle of something smooth and nice and hide it in a specific cupboard for special occasions. This has also become a joke with my children. They refer to it as Mommy's private stock! and yes, it also tends to get to old for consumption before I finish it.

I got nervous when I read the title. Then I realized it didn't say "An Old Alcoholic at My House!"
