Topic:  The Lost Art of Toasting

 

 

  • Nabbit is not a fan of toasts. His reasoning is that toasts now are forced. He doesn’t think there are enough genuine toasts. Luke argues that it’s because people are out of practice with the skill of a good toast.

 

 

  • Luke talks about one of his favorite bar toasts: “On the First Day God created Man. On The Second Day He created Woman. Here’s to second chances.”

 

  • Luke mentions a book about the history of bars and toasting in America. It’s called “America Walks Into A Bar” by Christine Sismondo.

 

  • Nabbit has the creeping suspicion that we’ve covered this topic before. Luke points out that this is the 82nd show and there was a lot of alcohol throughout…so maybe….but probably not.

 

 

 

Game: “Drink It” Or “Sink It” Challenge : Gentle Passions

 

A sweet drink made with Passoa, fresh squeezed orange juice and a dash of grenadine. Nabbit thinks the orange juice added a bit too much acidity, but liked the flavors. Oktober thought it was too much on the sweet side for her tastes and Major Monocle kept wondering when the toast was coming. The idea of turning this into a punch came up and it certainly sounded like a good idea. Give it a try and tell us what you think…the recipe is the post right before these notes.
