Happy Haulidays

Gifts Galore!

The holiday season, with its many blessings, is still marching on, but the exchange of gifts is near an end. Sure, there are a few odds and ends still yet to arrive, but for the most part the gifts have been given, and are now being devoured ferociously by the happy expectants. For me, Christmas came a bit early this year with my trip down to Forbidden Island, where I picked up the Bumper Sticker, (new) Green Forbidden Island mug, and Mister Mojito Muddler with Forbidden Island Logo. All of these, of course, available at Forbidden Island.

I also received a rather significant amount of books, including Imbibe! (which I’ve already devoured), Tiki Modern, What to Drink with What you Eat, and Harold McGee’s On Food and Cooking. Not pictured is the Peter Pauper’s Drink Book, a nifty little number from 1964 with some great illustrations.

There were also some great accouterments for the bar! Apparently, I was on the nice list this year. There’s the Starboard Light decanter filled with homemade Creme de Menthe, an Electric Ice Crusher (aka - the ultimate time saver), a re-upholstered Barrel-style foot stool, all gifts from Craig and Heather! The strangest gift though has to be a decanter shaped like a Skunk, with faux fur and little baby-skunk mugs that fit into its back. I’ll be putting up a picture later, it has to be seen to be believed.

Hope your holiday haul was as good if not better!
