    Amen! Especially with the vermouth just waving to the gin from halfway across the room.

    Bourbon on the rocks is quite yummy (and is my go-to shitty-day-at-work drink), but then so is a really fruity mai-tai (avec or sans umbrella).

    All time fave: A strong, extra spicy Bloody Mary, mmmmm!

    Mixed drink favorite, probably a really good Margarita on the rocks with salt. And I'm really into Mojitos right now.

    Yes, but I never actually tasted it. Is it still around? Not sure I would like it. I do like Champagne, especially Prosecco (Italian region sparkling wine - dry, not sweet). Interesting thing I read. In France they do not use their best grapes for Champagnes (I realize that only grapes grown in the Champagne region qualify). In Italy, they reserve much of their best grapes for Prosecco. Consequently, you can buy some excellent Proseccos for about $12-$18 a bottle, which rival $30-$50 bottles of Champagne. Just be careful in buying Italian sparkling wines, if you don't want sweet. Asti Spumante is a very sweet sparkling wine and unfortunately has given Italian sparkling wines a bad image. Proseccos are Brut, just like their French and US counterparts.

    Most of the alcohol at a bris goes to the baby.

    But that would be isopropyl The drinkable kind would be for the Rabbi after he cuts.

    Okay, I admit that my own bris was so traumatic that I've blotted out all memory of it! However, I have been to a few since then. The rabbi doesn't do the circumcision, the mohel does. And the poor kid gets his first taste of wine to help deaden the pain and calm him down. (His parents often need a good stiff drink too!)

    "Stiff" should really not have been used in that post...

    I actually knew that the Mohel does the cutting, but I didn't know how to spell it . I am very good with an x-acto knife, the creative director at the ad agency I used to work for used to tell me all of the time that I should have been a Mohel . I told him that I didn't think they let Episcopalian women do that .

    I did not know that they gave the baby a taste of wine. Thanks.

    My son was a day old and it was done in the hospital. I'm glad I didn't watch, I'd have been to anxious.

    As does dear old Grandfather. He gets to hold the child while the deed is done. I learned that the hard way, so to speak...

    NJL (..and I ain't even Jewish, but the parents, grandmothers & the mohel were all for it (insistent, actually) so I performed as required .........at least all went well and all of us survived..)

    So who is going to name a cocktail based on a bris?
    Snipped schnapps maybe? Perhaps flaming foreskin? Rabbi's lament? Let the games begin...
