In my imaginary world in which I throw glamorous holiday parties, I will serve this:
In this same imaginary world, I always have a fully-stocked bar and herb garden. You know, come to think of it, it would be pretty cool if I could put things like that on my wishlists. I would need lots of different flavors of schnapps and brandy, your basics like vodka and gin and whiskey, and nice mixers like infused syrups, sodas, and fruit juices. I always see commercials about giving fancy liquor as gifts (lately I’ve been seeing something about an engraved bottle. What?), but it seems like it would be weird to actually receive such a thing at a family gathering.
Plus we barely drink, and when we do, it’s likely a bottle of wine (which we do happily get and give as gifts sometimes).
This is why it’s a fantasy, people.
