Pour me, pour me, pour me…another G&T


The name of the blog makes me thing of two songs:

“Pour me, pour me, pour me, another shot of whiskey.” –Trick Pony (yes, I’m a country fan)

or much more appropriately

“A Malibu & Coke for you, a G&T for me.” — Barenaked Ladies

So, get to where I’m staying in Ft. Collins and that evening it’s happy hour!  Of course the family’s liquor cabinet is never under par (where do you think I learned to provide info about food & alcohol)?

Several members of my family love martinis, super dry.  I can’t stomach them.  But, I love a Gin & Tonic.  Well, apparently a new gin was recently purchased that was definitely not martini material but perfect for a G&T!  My new taste test — Few Standard Issue Gin.
