NaBloPoMo 2017: Day 5 – Time for a drink

It’s day 5 of NaBloPoMo and I’m here to talk about booze today! Hahaha. To be honest, I am not much of a drinker. I like the occasional glass of wine or a Bailey’s Irish Cream over ice, but I sure don’t have them very often. I’ve been pregnant or breast feeding for the past (almost) 4 years, so I haven’t had much to drink lately at all. I am still breastfeeding now, but a little bit of alcohol is fine to have while nursing. I decided I wanted to find a new favourite thing to drink and so I went on the hunt for something new.

I love sweeter fruity wines and so I really wanted to find a nice bottled sangria. After trying a few different kinds, I came across Naked Grape’s Sangria. It is seriously good. Like I want to drink a whole bottle to myself good. I’ve never done that of course, but it’s definitely one to enjoy! It’s so fruity and delicious. It satisfies me when I want to have an adult drink with supper. Best yet is that this Sangria is made by Canadian wine makers! Yeah. Hashtag buy local!

Of course I had to jump on the Pumpkin Spice bandwagon as well and so I also bought some PS Bailey’s Irish Cream. It was limited edition and I’m not sure if it’s still available in stores anymore. I thought it was quite tasty. However, I’d be just as fine with plain old Bailey’s to drink. Nothing to special.

The last new product I purchased was Kirkland’s Eggnog liqueur. I haven’t opened it yet, but I have high hopes for it. Although I hope it’s not too strong. If it is, I might just mix it with regular egg nog to weaken it a bit. Coming from Costco, it’s a HUGE bottle. It will take me a looooooong time to get through it. I may have to have a holiday party so I can share it around. Hahaha.

What are some of your favourite things to drink? Any suggestions for must haves in your liquor cabinet??

    I’m not much of a drinker myself (I hardly know any drink names or anything lol) but I can imagine that’s an awesome treat after NaBloPoMo! 😀

    I’m not much of a drinker either! I used to only like really sweet drinks, but a few years ago, I discovered I’m actually a big fan of cider. That’s my choice of drink now!
