I’ll Drink To That

10 Mar

A Freilichin Peedim Everyone!!!

My chosson, he really doesn’t like drinking, not even a shot Friday night between the fish and meat. I’m busy pouring shots for everyone (myself included) and he politely declined.

So, I thought he was just a bit interesting, retarded, and backwards when he said that even though he “zicher” doesn’t like drinking, “epes” on Purim, he’s “maskim” to get drunk.

He loves the feeling of being drunk, but hates the process it takes to get there. It’s a mitzvah on Purim, so the benefits outweigh the costs.

I’ve since learned to appreciate the mindset when I put on my rose-colored metaphor glasses.

There are just some things in life worth going through hell for it’s end result…shidduchim…childbirth…college…braces…awkward teenage years…an enemy, so you have an opportunity for the perfect comeback…and in my chosson’s case the high of intoxication…

To each his own.

    “but hates the process it takes to get there”
    You mean the hangover after?

    Not the hangover, but that’s lousy too…he doesn’t like drinking, as in the taste!

    Oh, well that’s simple.

    To get drunk on beer, Blue Moon, Sam Adams Hefeweizen or any Hefeweizen, Red Stripe. Also, some of Smirnoff Ice is kosher.

    To get drunk on wine, Rashi Claret is very nice. Port wine is very easy to get drunk on and it’s sweet. However, it’s pretty expensive, $40 and up.

    Everything over 40 percent is more or less an acquired taste, however, he can try mixed drinks at weddings. Melonball is very nice. If the bartender doesn’t know how to make it, it’s 1 part vodka, 1 part orange juice and 1 part Midori (Melon).

    To not get a hangover, don’t mix. Also, before drinking either drink a cup of milk or a table spoon or so of olive oil. After coming home, drink chamomile tea with mint. Preferably, buy it from stashtea, much better quality than what you have in the store.
    You have China Town next to you, you can buy dry chamomile there too and it doesn’t require hashgocha.
