We ran into Total Wine today for one thing. I needed Lime and Habanero Syrup that we use in a favorite martini. It wasn’t meant to be a field trip to Total Wine so much as a quick run in, yet how quickly things change!
We came out an hour later having spent $100 and carrying two boxes. How does that happen? Well, the Superbowl is coming, Total Wine has great champagne prices and I have a new vodka to try.
And did you know Total Wine in Rancho Cucamonga now offers beer tasting?
The selection being shared for tasting today was Hangar 24, made in Redlands, California.
The husband liked the Orange Wheat the best, but I liked the Columbus IPA. It had a grapefruit’esque taste to it, and I love citrus. No grapefruits in it even, just the bity tangy taste of a good ruby red.
Pretty cool set-up, right? Husband to the right and Justin the host on the left. Some other cool sites we saw —
And maybe my favorite purchase of the day?
Ideas on what cocktail to make? The bar’s open!
