Cool Originally it was to drink the entire bottle on Saturday night, but I figured I'd try it out.

You will eventually grow out of buying spirits for their gimmicky labels.

I've never had this one.
Rather, I prefer sparkling wine, mead and cider.

Have you tried making your own mead?

Nah. I don't like or drink it that much, m'lady.

So when you listed it under your preferred drinks in the post above, was that your alter ego?

Refer to "prefer." Meaning, if I drink, which I rarely do, which I alluded to in "I don't like [it] or drink it that much."
Do you get it: a choice in and a measure of my drinking habits.
Whoa, although condescending the entire time, I got through that without overtly insulting you, m'lady; almost, anyway.

"I prefer"... as in "I don't like it".
Got it.

I don't like it that much, but prefer it over others. Why is that so hard to comprehend.

Because you expressed yourself poorly.

In context, "that much" translates to: "not liking or drinking it enough to make my fucking own."

Or you're just not intellectually well-rounded, dense in more areas than one, as I know you're not totally obtuse since you can engineer and program.

I am sufficiently rounded, but I am foreign. I am sometimes lead to error by poorly phrased sentences. Don't take that as an offense, but as a reminder that if you wish to be properly understood, you should put effort into how you communicate.
"I don't drink very much at all, but in the event that I do, I prefer sparkling wine, mead, and cider." ... would have been better.
I'm fond of exploring of wines and spirits myself, and I have enough acquaintances in the homebrew community to know that mead drinkers are also often mead makers. It is just about one of the simple brews you can make, and a good use for a surplus of honey.

Semantics, trivialities, princess. I suspect this is how the feminine satiates, justifies itself with believing it has gained the crown, upperhand, victory, whereas the masculine says: "Fuck it; you win whatever it is you think you have won."

It's not only what you it and drink, but how; what utensils, what tools, what instruments intervene between the consumed, the objective, and the consuming, the subjective.

Modern Greeks drink wine from glasses like this...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Not as refined, delicate, sophisticated than the usual glassware, but there is something profound about them.
They are small, bigger than shot-glasses but not able to hold the volume of western wine glasses.

The magic is not in the appearance, but in what they force the drinker to do.
The drinker must fill his glass often, perhaps after ever swallow.
It imposes a state of lucidity.
The movement of filling the glass, the repetition, is an affirmation.
Each glassful a separate ritual.
One for the dead, the next for the living, then to particulars.
Each one separate, distinct, with its own ritual.

I've looked for glasses like the ones in the pic, and the ones I drank, many a time, wine in Greece, but I have not come across them.

*******************

Tomorrow I am bringing my son to my father's grave. I'll take two small glasses, and a small bottle of wine.
We'll take a drink to the gods, to nature that made us possible, raising our glasses to ouranos, and then to our ancestors, and then to my father, we will spill it on the earth.

I had a Greek landlord once when I lived in Germany.

He had little glasses like this, but we drank Ouzo from them. We would drink a few toasts when I would go down to pay the rent, I never remember getting back to my flat.

No other alcohol makes me blank out like that.

I remember his wife drinking wine and not Ouzo. She would keep her eye on me and never spoke to me once, but she had the most cherubic smile.

I found the exact same ones on ebay, and I am feeling nostalgic.

22k gold, I remember being able to feel the gold under my fingertips. I want to buy them.. but have not the space for them.

Oh, I think this is similar to what you are looking for;

My housemates are gone, which means I'm drinking wine, which means I've had too much, which means I want you talk to me, which means I'm pacing around my backyard "like a madman", which means I'm maintaining my equilibrium by tracing the clothesline, which means it takes me three hours  to get up the stairs, which means I'm listening to music too loudly, which means I'm not yet over you, which means I'm staring at my eyes in the mirror asking "who are you," which means I'm dancing to stay awake, which means I don't know the last time I Iaid my head down, which means I don't know my last meal, which means you make me sick, which means I love you, which means I hate you, which means I hope you fall victim to guilt, which means none of this applies later on when this all wears down.

Do you ever imbibe beer, or just a wine and spirits kind of guy?

I like beer.
Don't drink spirits, much...not nay more.
Only vodka, when I do.

I prefer wine, port, beer, and vodka, and cognac on occasion.
