special reserve

It is cold now, the kind of bitter cold that seeps into every extremity rendering one to stay indoors, light a fire and have a little sip of something to ward off the chill. There is something so soothing about the oaky flavor and the fact that is matured in the highlands of Scotland.
I have a crystal cut glass that was my Grandmother's reserved for a wee sip. Happy hour to you.
What do you have reserved for your happy hour?

Enjoy Patricia;
I am going to have a nice glass of Lot 50 Old Vine Red, by Marietta.

Another wonderful choice is Blue Moon Belgium beer with a slice of Cecelia orange slice!

It is 5 o' clock somewhere~

Cheers!

Mmm. That sounds wonderful. And since it's snowing here in SC right now, I'm thinking of pouring a small nip of Woodford Reserve and water. Cheers!

Lovely!Wwish I could join you! We are in the middle of a southern snowstorm ourselves.

I do love a touch of single malt-and how funny-I have my Dad's crystal scotch glass. Tonight it is a chilled pinot grigio.
The patient is doing well, but his nurse is exhausted...sweet dreams!

A woman after my own heart. My favorite is Royal Lochnagar Single Malt Scotch from a distillery not far from Balmoral Castle amongst the beauty of Royal Deeside. You gave me a great idea to spend the evening in front of the fire having a 'wee sip' as well. Have a glorious weekend Patricia.

Cheers my dears x

Mmmmmm .... I'm content with a good glass of wine, preferably by the fire as Charlotte experiences a rare dusting of snow!

Snow on the ground, weather in the teens! A Grand Marnier in a nice snifter sounds really nice.

Frau said...

Coffee and Baileys but a little sip of whiskey does the trick. Stay warm and have a wonderful weekend.

A small but pretty glass of Blackberry brandy. It reminds me of many nights skiing in Vermont, and in the lodge.

The snow has just begun to fall and I detect a Macallan 18 in my future!

We sipped brandy last night to warm us up {though nothing fancy!} Thanks for stopping by my blog, by the way -- it led me to discoveryours ;)

Hi PVE!

Missed you and your fun-filled posts of great varied interests and art!

We like to keep Gentleman Jack on hand for Sean's happy hour drink of choice, and I'm a bubbly kinda gal, so champagne is always in the fridge!

Bon weekend to you!

About this time of year, we start drinking margaritas to remind us that summer on the beach will be here again. Eventually. :-)

Hope you are feeling better!!
