wild rascals -gotsd- wild rosed
and it all started with the gossip girl season finale...
we ran out of wine so laura and i went down the street to the polish liquor store, searching for well priced [i.e. cheapo] booze. i picked up the wild rose because of the astonishingly awesome label.
i asked for a price check. he said, "$1.87"..
hold up wait a minute, "Whaat?!", i exclaimed, "is it wine?"
he replied, "yes, but it's 20% alcohol"..
laura and i shared a smile and were on board for a jokeE boozeE gift to return with.
a woman waiting at the register turned around and said, " that's what all the bums drink, i don't think you should."
we thanked her for her advice but chose to try it irregardless of the warning.
turns out. it was a surefire hit.
tastes like white porto.
(i do have to say, the lady was right on one accord..the resulting hangover felt a bit like a BUMmer.)
