It's no secret here that I love whiskey, right? Bourbon, Scotch, Irish Whiskey, Tennessee Whiskey, Rye...I love it all. Not a fan of Canadian Whisky, but I've never really dabbled. That might be next.
And I've got a great collection of terrific whiskey glasses. Sturdy, heavy-bottom whiskey glasses or curved, somewhat fluted snifter kind of whiskey glasses. I always use those when we have company. They present well and they show of the wonderful color of the liquid. And whiskey snobs seem to use those types of glasses exclusively. So I do...when there are guests involved.
But when it's just me and Gia at home, or if I'm home by myself...I drink my whiskey out of a coffee cup. And yes, sometimes I like to have a glass of whiskey when I'm home alone. Don't fucking judge me, you, um, judgers.
I really don't know why I grab the coffee cup when it's whiskey time. I just do. It's not like the old movie trope of hiding your drinking. I make a point of letting people know that I'm having whiskey when I'm having whiskey. It's just that it feels...right, I guess. The ceramic and the handle and everything. The whiskey just seems to taste better in my coffee cup. If I had some mini-Mason jars I might use those, because that seems right as well. But I don't, so I use my coffee cup.
Some things just can't be explained. Some things shouldn't be.
