122. Mulled Wine

122. Mulled Wine - Hero

JERRY WHAT ARE YOU DOING. This mulled wine does not have wine in it! I guess sherry is fortified wine but that’s a whole other kettle of fish. There’s a much more entertaining version of this recipe, 123, which is basically the same thing but an even larger batch and the recipe is written as a song. One day, we will make this. Be excited.

Here’s a piece of news worth mulling over (see what I did there): Cory Booker is now the first senator to testify against another senator in confirmation hearings. He is trying to prevent Jeff Sessions from being approved as Trump’s Attorney General. This probably won’t work, as the Republicans hold a majority (and apparently candidates hardly ever get rejected anyway), but as a show of defiance it probably works out.

177. Locomotive - Hero

Welcome to 2017! Continuing the eggnog trend, we’ve got a super weird but very tasty combo of red wine and eggs. It also involves clove essential oil, which I had to buy at Whole Foods. It was kind of pricey, but it did make this a very nice quaff. I imagine it was served on wintry train rides? Or something?

This year, I’m going to try to get back into the news game. I’ve been doing the stories, of course, but I’ve been sort of slacking in terms of reporting actual news. Not that the Boozy Newsie is ever going to be known for its hard-hitting investigative journalism, but stories just about people drinking alcohol are kind of lame. So, instead, here’s this rather depressing story… A train (or locomotive) crashed into a platform two days ago in Brooklyn, injuring 100 but luckily there was nothing worse than a broken leg. Which is still bad, but considering the alternatives, not terrible. They’re investigating the crash, including a drug test for the engineer, though I don’t think it’s actually the big news that this story is implying; more likely it is just routine. But we’ll find out! Hopefully this will push the system to add more safeguards and so on to our public transportation.
