Oktoberfest Addison #oktoberfestaddison

Fun time at the Oktoberfest in Addison. They been hosting the event for 30 years! This year did not disappoint with lots of beer and food to be had. It is still going on this weekend. Do check it out and have a beer or two or three...

Mallee Point Pink Moscato #moscato

Tried a new one the other day. Comes from Southeastern Australia. It's Mallee Point's Pink Moscato. Has a slight fizz to it and sweetness. Served cold with some cheese and crackers while watching the grass grow in the backyard and all was good for the Winos.

White Wine Wino gave it a Good Rating. Red Wine Wino was hesitant due to the low alcohol content (7.5%) but ended up agreeing to buy it again in the future... therefore, the Winos gave it a Good Rating (aka "will buy it again rating").

Bar Louie's in Allen for Martinis! #martinis #barlouies

Had the urge for some Martinis the other day. Went for the usual suspects at Bar Louie's... the Dirty Martini served with Olives stuffed with Bleu Cheese and the Rat Pack.

Sobieski Vodka #vodka #martinis

Heard about Sobieski Vodka from a radio commercial by Mario Lopez. Gave it a try; makes great Martinis! Came in a box set with two shot glasses and recipes for two cocktails... may need to mix up a glass or two. For now, will go with a Tabasco Martini!

CK Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon

Had CK Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon before and liked it. Had it again... Winos still liked it! This one maintains a Good Rating, as we plan to buy it again in the future. Great for chillin in the backyard watching the grass grow... 13% Alcohol Content keeps the Red Wine Wino well "chilled", too!

Top Golf's Wine in a Bucket: Stella Rosa Black and Seven Daughters Moscato #wine #topgolf

Stopped by Top Golf last night to hit a few golf balls. No wait, got there later in the evening... very nice! Decided to try their Wine in a Bucket offering choosing a Sweet Red and a Moscato from Stella Rosa Black and Seven Daughters, respectively.

All was good with enough sweetness to keep the White Wine Wino happy. Red Wine Wino was good with them save for the needed "fortification" on the alcohol content . 5.5% for the Sweet Red and 7.5% for the Moscato.

No worries thought, ordered the drink with the flashing souvenir glass shaped like a golf bag!

Christian Brothers Brandy and Manzanita Sol... #brandy

Chillin in the backyard, decided to mix up some apple soda with brandy. Went with Christian Brothers Brandy and Manzanita Sol in a 1 to 1 mix, add a little ice cube to chill... all was good for the Red Wine Wino!
