Happy National Vodka Day!!!!  I’m not much of a drinker but I enjoy an occasional glass of wine or a cocktail.

I have a funny story to tell you all about something that happened while I was young and very inexperienced.  Long ago my husband was working in a restaurant and got invited to a wine tasting at a very nice hotel along with the General Manager of the restaurant.  My husband brought me as his guest.

I had no clue as to how a wine tasting worked, but was excited to be attending.  When we got there it was very nicely set up in a huge banquet type room.  There were wine vendors everywhere and buckets everywhere too.  I saw people spitting out after sipping the wine and my husband explained thats the way a wine tasting works.

I found the idea of spitting out the wine silly and uncomfortable so I decided I would drink the wine.  Mind you all I was young and had no clue what I was doing.  Anyhow I continued to try the samples and finish them all. I was really enjoying these delicious wines. Then I noticed a Tiki Hut serving mixed drinks and I liked Vodka so I excitedly headed over and tried a few martini samples they had and some others.

I was enjoying myself up until all those drinks hit my system like a ton of bricks.  We were nearing the end of the wine tasting and my husband and the manager wanted to go have a beer at the downstairs hotel bar.  All hell broke loose for me I got nauseous and I had to run to the restroom because I was officially sick. I made a fool out of myself by asking the bartender if she had bread or crackers I could eat to help the nausea. I even believe I started tearing up if I remember correctly. We left after that and I slept on the ride home.  Well I hope you got a good laugh because that was one of my most embarrassing moments ever.

  1. So I’m wondering a couple of things…Have you been to a wine tasting since then and if so, have you become a spitter? 😆 Also, I don’t drink vodka, but those drink recipes look absolutely delicious! Maybe I’ll try one.
