Good Ideas: For your glass, For your etiquette

Two Posts In One!

 RUBY RED

First, an endorsement: Usually, I am a beer drinker but when I venture to the other side of the liquor store, typically Deep Eddy Sweet Tea vodka is in hand (lemonade is in the other but do what you want).  It has a comforting taste, hails from my great state and gets my conversation engines revved.  This weekend, I was overjoyed to try the newest Deep Eddy flavor, Ruby Red grapefruit.  Instead of regaling the thesaurus to identify how deliciously ingenious it is, go buy yourself a bottle and make a drink.  Here’s a recipe:

  •   1 part Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka
  •   2 parts lemonade
  •   Garnish with a sprig of rosemary

Second, some good ideas: Things Not To Do When Attending a BBQ Cook-Off

1.       Do not wear flip flops.

2.       Do not think you will win a drinking game.

3.       Do not sit on a wet tailgate.

4.       Do not leave your cooler unlocked.

5.       Do not settle for the first restrooms you find.

6.       Do not speak at normal voice level when commenting on the cosmetic choices of others.

7.       Do not mooch.

8.       Do not hog the armrest cup holders.

9.       Do not underestimate the importance of paper towels.

10.   Do not order a pizza.

No-I-think-it-means-with-beverage Trivia: Concan, Texas may (or may not) have gotten its name from Conquian, a card game popular in Texas in the seventeenth-century.
