A peppermint patty cocktail - creme de cacao, peppermint schnapps, and Bailey’s.

It is very sweet, but it does taste like a peppermint patty!

I am not drinking it at present, but there's a can of Twisted Tea that's been in my fridge for months. I can't look at without laughing right now, thanks to the internet.

Wow, this was just amazing. Due to the different lockdowns and semi-lockdowns we started ordering some wine and beer from Santa Rita vineyard, which is just up the road. We had two problems with orders, but they resolved them pretty quickly. Anyways, we were talking about buying the most expensive wine on the site:

http://www.santarita.cl/en/news/decante ... h-america/

On New Year's Eve, my husband said it was too bad we didn't buy that wine to celebrate the end of a horrible 2020. At 7 PM the security guard at the front gate called to say that Santa Rita was here to bring us a little present. It was that bottle of wine! Not exactly a little present, it costs over US$100. It came with a note thanking us for our business and apologizing for the issues with ordering.

It was a very good wine. We actually bought a second bottle for my 50th birthday that is coming up this weekend, since Portugal is not happening. Here we are in this stupid system where you are locked down over weekends but can go out during the week. My birthday is on Saturday, so we will just be doing a barbecue accompanied by that wine.

Since I'm usually late with birthday wishes, it's fitting I'm early with this one - Happy Birthday, Zeca! ;)

Belated thanks for all the birthday wishes. It was as good as it could be, I guess. My husband did his best to make it special. The butcher in the next village up the road had lamb, so he grilled that.
