Drinks After Work

Work. After nearly 9 months I am back to the grind and to be honest, I missed it quite a bit. The structure. The routine. The responsibility. I have to admit, the social butterfly in me needed to get back into the swing of things & meet new people.

This got me to thinking of what people do after work. For so long we either went straight home to take care of an ailing parent, or our commute left us so tired we sometimes skipped dinner and went straight to bed. Now that we both work so close to home and are only responsible for each other and our rambunctious cat, dinners out and an adult beverage here and there are sounding quite nice!

I see people sharing their pics of after work drinks, whether out at a restaurant or at home. They share their beers, wines & cocktails. Im not a beer drinker. Ive had some in the past but its not a favorite. I dont drink regulary, typically only on occasions & that usually consists of celebratory shots or the occasional cocktail. My daily go-to beverages are water, iced tea or coffee but everyone says the benefits of wine at dinner is something I should consider. So I am considering wine…but where do I start?

Over the years, my hubby and I have tried a few different types. You can probably tell that they weren’t a big hit otherwise they would be a staple in our home and I wouldn’t be asking for your help. See, I need guidance. I want feedback on wines. All types. Whites, reds, rosés…blends, sweets & sparkling.

  • What do you like?
  • Do you have a brand you love?
  • How often do you enjoy a glass or two?
  • What made  you decide to try wine?
  • Do you have a suggestion for a newbie?

I want to know…I want to learn. I want to be the person a year from now who says, ‘Last night I curled up on the sofa with a glass of wine & my hubby.’

  1. Coming from a wine-growing country (Hungary) it might be only natural that I love wine! 😉 I’m not a wine buff though, don’t know much about the process but I love to enjoy the result! My favourite is champagne or cava in Spain (where I live now). It’s a little different from sparkling wine and has a celebratory, cocktail-like feeling to it with its elegant glass so I’d definitely recommend them 😉
