Thirsty Thursday Thirteen

I grew up in a sailing community. On Thursday evenings in the summer, there was a little racing series called Thirsty Thursdays. Cocktails under sail. It wasn't about the racing per se, as much as the being out on the water for a sunset sail and a picnic on a weeknight. With that in mind, here's my thirsty Thursday Thirteen - beverages for a work day seguing into a holiday meal:

1. Black Coffee – made from freshly ground Peet’s house blend
2. Hot Apple Cider from the Union Square Greenmarket
3. Lemon Zinger tea
4. Seltzer (plain or lemon-lime)
5. Chicken Noodle Soup (well, it’s mostly liquid)
6. V-8
7. Coffee with milk, and a chocolate chip cookie on the side
8. Gus Pomegranate Soda
9. Gin & Tonic, heavy on the lime
10. Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose
11. White wine, especially a nice crisp Sauvignon Blanc
12. Apple Ice wine
13. Calvados

I have to agree with BeccaLynn. I've never heard of Calvados, either.

Because of your great TT, though, I intend to Google it and find out why it makes your top 13! :)

Since two of you asked, I added a link for Calvados above. It's an apple brandy, and a wonderful after dinner drink, especially in the cold weather.

Mmm, I could use some hot coffee with milk and a chocolate chip cookie right about now. Heaven!

Apple Brandy is good stuff, I've only had Lairds before. Thanks for the clarification, and for visiting my blog!
