It’s a new school year and this homage to everyone’s favorite distilled potato libation is available from the Chabad House at Tulane University in New Orleans. Stoked to see that the Jews of NOLA still get their party on!
Me, I’ve never been much of a hard alcohol chick since my college days of drinking whole bottles of sh*tty tequila and puking in the planters outside the dorm, but living in the South forces one to come up with some kind of classy answer to the ubiquitous question “So whatchy’all want to drink?”
And guess what? As a grown-up I’ve discovered that a nice, cold cocktail – sipped slowly, in a glass – is actually an enjoyable thing and won’t provoke me into taking off my shirt in front of a police officer while slurring the lyrics to Def Leppard’s “Rock of Ages.”
My new liquid passion is Firefly, a sweet-tea flavored vodka that tastes like a lazy day on the porch, but too many tumblers full and it’ll turn into passed-out-in-your-front-yard-being-peed-on-by-the-neighbor’s-shitzu. Not that I would know anything about that, Ocifer…
L’Chaim to all and Shallot Shabome, or, er, Good Shabbath…Whatever. I just want my rock n’ roll…you betcha.
