Default A Fundamental Truth

The more you imbibe of a spirit you do not like, the better you like it. (This does NOT apply to Zaya.)
Its been incredibly hot in the Yukon for the last three days: 30 〫C (86〫F) so I was looking for a cooler way to have my bedtime tot. Gin, I thought. No, I have these whites that I hate, and have relegated to the pantry with the recycling and the cleaning supplies. The one that came to hand was Havana Club 3 yo. Jeez! it doesn't even smell like rum!
Hmm. Smells like Tequila. Lime (the fruit, not the constituent of mortar) came to mind, and sugar. OK. Lime and sugar it is. Teaspoon of this, slurry of that, ice...Oh that's awful.
A half hour later: Well maybe that's not so bad.
Waste not want not eh?

I think I'm going to hate it (again) tomorrow.
Never pass a bar with your name on it.

Good post Carl. The truth can be rather "fluid".
