A mashup.

Bourbon, vodkow, jagermeister, whiskey, spiced rum, white rum.

And a couple ice cubes.

And music to match the mood.

Just got home from work. Tomorrow is more than Xmas for me. It's my first full day off from work since Nov 17. Time to sip on some of that fine whiskey.

Utah destroys thousands of gallons of beer                                                 


Orrin Porter Rockwell, the notoriously violent bodyguard to both Mormon Church founder Joseph Smith and Brigham Young.
Known as the “Destroying Angel,” Rockwell claimed to have killed 150 men.

Rockwell died in a Salt Lake City horse stable on June 9, 1878, reportedly “trying to sober up from a drunken episode.”

I don't think that's from the USA for some reason. I started out thinking it was a bottle of George Dickel, then decided vodka, then settled on it being some sort of ouzo.

Those socks, tho.

If they go through the dishwasher the gold disappears. I have a really cool carafe from my grandmother that is the same blue / gold but the blue is dancing/drinking poodles. The gold on that one is long gone, but it's so funky and from my grandma, so it will always stay.  

The amoeba's are mostly in really good shape, the starburst are a mixed bag. But we use them all the time. I love the dings and scratches on them - character, and it fits with my motto - use things, love people.  There is also a place here that collects and sells all kinds of vintage stoneware. They usually have a box of starburst that is too beat up for the collectors, so he makes me a deal on them. 

 
How cool is that????  I have 4 dinner plates (which were a gift from a friend), 4 small plates, a platter, a serving dish, salt and pepper shakers, and some cups and saucers in that pattern.

We bought the gold-free glasses at a junk store, already stripped of their glory..... it wasn't until later that we realized half of the design was missing.....
And Grandma's carafe is a precious thing.... I get that!

Nice catch - those are pretty cool glasses.  I think those bottles and glasses in the original photo just appear so large from a photographic distortion and the table may be closer than it seems to the camera and not as close to the people.  Everything on the table looks larger in comparison to the people, even the cigarette packs.

Pretty sure P would gut you like a fish for those. That's her favorite pattern.

 
I'll put you in the estate plan, but there will be a clause about you getting nothing if I'm gutted like a fish.

Yeah, they look like pint bottles; I can't figure out the brand* but they're smoking Pall Malls.  They have some fancy drinking glasses too and someone on the front of the table had a martini.  Larger picture here.
*edit: "Stroh's Bohemian Beer

 
I should backscroll. And yes, these are 12 oz but I see they were also offered in "half-quart" bottles.

I inherited some really high quality crystal wine glasses from my parents but they are tiny and very out of fashion now with our ladidah capture the aroma in a fish bowl connoisseur habits. So I have repurposed them as Nick and Nora cocktail glasses. You can finish your drink while it is still cold.

The tubs of sugar that pass for cocktails these days usually don't have much more alcohol, though.
