    when i drank i tended to be kinda hard core....i have lighten up in the last decades..that liver thing you know...i dont look that good in yellow....but lately i have discovered the miracle of brandy...at first it was christian brothers but i must admit it had a nasty afterbite...so i moved up to hennessy which is a cognac....much smoother...no real nasty afterbite..
    so what brandy or cognac do you prefer...i undestand that clear water or clear creek not sure which but clear something is the best american....

    I hate brandy but love... LOVE cognac. cognac w/ apple juice is a great drink. I really like getting plowed on wine, and cognac is a similar feeling to me - prolly cause they're similar in nature.

    Remy Martin VSOP Fine Cognac, or if you really want to spoil yourself, Remy Martin Coeur De Cognac.

    Now you've done it! Mouth watering.Must have a shot!

    My mother would make fruitcake every year. She'd buy the dried fruit and soak it for a month or more in apricot brandy. Then, when she got ready to make the fruitcake, she'd drain the fruit and because she didn't believe in wasting booze, well, she's start sipping while she was making the fruitcake. It took hours and by the time she was done, she was at least 3 sheets to the wind and a whole lot of fun to watch. Funny thing, none of us liked her fruitcake but she was convinced we did and made it for us every year. She told us all that our brother Butch loved the stuff so we'd all end up giving our fruitcakes to him. It wasn't until after she died we discovered Butch didn't like the fruit cakes either, he just didn't want to hurt her feelings. Poor woman, all those hours every year making fruitcake and the most fun we got out of them was watching her make them. :lol:

    About every 5 years now, I'll buy a bottle of apricot brandy, just to remember my mom.
