These are a few of my favorite things

I feel I should lighten the mood around this blog.

A couple of months ago I mentioned a few of my favorite baby things here. Well, it’s time once again for a few of my favorite things but this time the theme is “things you can drink”.

The mother ship has landed. Oh, boy has it ever and its gooooood. Mothership Wit Organic Wheat Beer is the best beer crafted on the face of this planet. It even ranked above my beloved 1554 and Fat Tire. Most women I know would prefer a mixed drink of sorts, an apple-tini or lemon drop or possibly a nice glass of red wine. Not me. I am a beer girl, give me an ice cold brew the darker the better and in the bottle please. I am a beer snob though, it can’t be Coors light, no must be a micro. brew.

 

I’ll give you all the razzle dazzle on this Mothership Wit: The mothership has elevated the zesty wit or white beers of Belgium with wheat malt, coriander and orange peel spicing-all organically grown. The alluring taste is a result of citrus and sour flavors held in perfect balance with a bright burst of carbonation. And certified by the Oregon Tilth. I don’t think New Belgium beer is available everywhere but if you are lucky enough to have it in your town run to the nearest liquor store and get some! And if you are ever in the beautiful college town where this beer is brewed, check out the brewery. It is simply amazing. And is quite green, not as in color but as in production.

For my second favorite drinking item…da ta da da…..Izze. I don’t drink soda, pop, coke, sodapop whatever you call it in your neck of the woods. I just stopped and now it doesn’t appeal to me, but on a hot summer day I want a refreshing bubbly drink. That’s when I discovered Izze Sparkling Juice. Geeze I sound like a commercial. I assure you no commercial here, just stuff I love. Izze is made with 70% fruit juice and a splash of sparkling water made with no refined sugars, no caffeine, no preservatives, and no artificial colors or flavors. Blackberry is my fav. flav. not to be confused with Flavor Fav., his show I do not like. Plus, who doesn’t like the word Izze.

Go out and try these “things you can drink”. I hope I cheered you all up after that last post. Happy weeks end.
