Coffee After Wine Is Not Always Fine

Here's a quick tip. I do not recommend having an espresso martini after a couple of glasses of Pinot Gris. Please note that this is not a combination I would normally have on my own. Out with my niece in Hingham, Mass the other night, we got to talking with a small group of folks while waiting for a take out order. Being the kind lot they were, they unexpectedly bought each of us one of these martinis. And not wanting to insult these people, we drank them.

Two days later I am still thinking about this and those little dark beans floating around in my drink. Oh, and did I mention the Tuna Tartar that I ate after the martini? That really was the icing on the cake. Nothing like white wine, vodka, and raw fish. Now excuse me please I'm starting to feel dizzy again.

Oh CJ, that is enough to make me sick just thinking about it. Hope you feel better today, and just to clarify...she was wearing pink pants...it was obscene.

URRgh. Though an espresso martini sounds appealing in and of itself... feel better.

Thanks for well wishes OC and Lyn. Feeling a little better - off to my 25th highschool reunion tonight. Oh my.

Still laughing about the pink pants OC.

Sorry all for the nausiating post. I know I learned my lesson. Both my niece and I actually thought the guy had slipped something into our drinks because it made us feel so blah. I think it was really the combination that did us in however.

Hey Rubye Jean - The reunion was a lot of fun! I'm so glad I went!
