I know we have had a couple of weeks off, but fun fact Friday is back!
First off, and in honor of it being Friday and 5 o'clock somewhere and all of that, I wanted to answer this question for Mrs. Sitcom: "What is your prediction for the 'Drink of the Future"? ie What should I imbibe copiously over the coming year? :)"
(sidenote: don't worry people. Your requests will be answered. Including a wedding update. Maybe this will become a weekly thing.)
My suggestion is to not go trendy. Not ever. When you do this, you inevitably end up looking like an asshole. When I see four girls sitting in a corner drinking cosmos, I know they believe they are all Carrie Bradshaw or Samantha or Charlotte (but definitely not Miranda...no one wants to be Miranda), but I digress...
You can't go wrong with wine. I prefer reds to whites, but that's me and I would probably prefer that you stick with whites so you stay the hell away from my bottle, but it's whatever. Champagne is also an excellent choice and classes up any occasion (true story: I had some last night with my nachos at the movie theater). One exception to this rule: sporting events. Don't be the weirdo at the baseball game with your plastic cup of wine. Drink a beer.
If we are talking cocktails, I say stick with the classics. My preference is the side car. A sidecar is essentially a brandy margarita. It's delicious and strong. But be careful, too many and you can wake up with beans in your hair (don't even ask).
No matter what you decide to go with, I want to give you all this advice for drinking in 2010:
(1) Never eat the fruit in the trashcan punch. Nothing good can come of it. I know someone who once lost their toga that way (for the record, not me).
(2) Never touch your mouth to the shot block. You have no idea what sort of diseases you could contract, especially if Ed Hardy types are there.
This week's fun fact:
Astronauts cannot burp in space.
