I'm drinking a homemade tangerine liqueur a friend of mine gave me. It's made with a technique where the peels never touch the alcohol. Apparently it takes several months to be ready. It has a light color and it's quite strong.

Now that's something I'd like to drink at 7am.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

Cold it's even better. Someone in the forum reminded me to do put it in the fridge.  ;) 
Now it's there right by the milk carton and my mother in law's limoncello. I know what you're thinking: xtopave pays attention to her vitamin C intake.  :D

Now that's something I'd like to drink at 7am.

You're crazy! Now 8... 8:30...

I've made my own mandarinetto with a Sicilian recipe I've found online and it turn out fantastic! My neighbour has a huge mandarine tree and half of it is in my property. I've made 4 bottles and gave away 2 and now I regret it.  ;D
I caramelized the peels of a 2nd batch.
And now I'm making lemoncello with lemons from my mother's lemon tree bc mine is too small and is suffering from some plague.

My wife bought me some really good Lemoncello for Christmas but it hardly made it past Boxing day.  I have been refilling the lovely bottle with stuff I can buy at the supermarket but in all honesty it's diabolical. I may have to take a brief jaunt to Sicily just to stock up.

That Mandarinetto sounds like heaven on earth.  Don't be surprised if I turn up at your doorstep.

I was given a bottle of this by a customer and it's so good I drank about 2/3rds of the bottle with dinner.

2/3rds? I usually fight my husband for half of any bottle of wine so I guess you're lucky.  ;D
Judging by the price that must be a very good Malbec. The other day my family did a whip-round to buy Festivo Malbec directly to the winery so we got a very good price. We used to do that with Alfredo Roca but those days are gone.  :D
And yesterday a friend gave me 2 bottles (+ 2 champagne flutes) of Cava Freixenet Cordon Negro.

Buy him a scooter and then crack open a cold one.

he has a licence to drive a car but parking in the city center is awful and his insurance for 3 months is ridiculous.
After collecting last night , driving past 5 crashes with fire engines / ambulances / police i'm glad he doesnt drive.
