Bacchanalia, Baby…

On the ancient Roman calendar, today marks the start of Bacchanalia, the 2-day festival to worship Bacchus, the god of wine and debauchery. To commemorate this auspicious event (and frankly, because it’s Tuesday and not the weekend) I thought I’d invite people to post their favorite drink, drinking game, drinking story (one that involves you personally), or most delicious drink recipe in the comment section below. On Thursday, I will draw three winners at random from all the comments received and each person gets a signed book as a prize. And please be sure to invite your friends to come on over and take part (you’ll see easy-to-use “share” buttons below this post).

So I’ll start things off by talking about my love of Bombay Sapphire gin and tonics. I first heard of Bombay Sapphire after reading Richard Marcinko’s ROGUE WARRIOR books and his love for the gin (which he usually drinks over ice). Already a fan of gin and tonics (but never able to find a gin I really liked) I tried it with Bombay Sapphire and the rest is history – and Lawson’s favorite drink was born. I like a healthy wedge of lime squeezed into the drink (y’know, for fighting off scurvy, lol). First I’ll get a nice pile of ice cubes, pour a good 1/4 to 1/3 Bombay Sapphire over that so it can start to chill, then add the tonic water and finally top it off with the squeeze of lime followed by the lime itself into the glass.

Your turn! Have fun and remember to toast Bacchus!

PS: I’m also looking for questions to fill in over on my FAQ Page so if you’ve got any pressing inquiries about me, my work, my training, my production company – what have ya, feel free to leave a comment below as well. I’ll do a “formal” blog post about more FAQ solicitations, but for now, if you’d rather ask a question, that’s cool, too. And yes, you’re still eligible for the book drawing. 🙂
