On one of the days this past weekend, I wanted to serve Whisky Macs to my guests because a) it’s a warm, festive drink and b) why should I be the only one to suffer the next day?

Of course, the Scotch was no problem, but the Stone’s Ginger Wine…?
Nowhere to be found. Some bastard must have crept into my house unnoticed and drunk it without my noticing him. I had to resort to serving the usual (gin, single malt, wine, etc.) but I was mightily embarrassed, I can tell you.
Which is bad enough, but the thought of New Year’s Eve without a Whisky Mac… [shudder]
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to the range — and then the liquor store.
