8: top 10 beverages

10. a race-day gatorade
9. a miami frappucino
8. an apres-ski cafe mocha
7. a mid-spin-class slug of water
6. a friday afternoon victory golden monkey
5. a full-bodied red zinfandel (to go with something warm and italian)
4. a crisp sauvignon blanc (to go with something summery and maritime)
3. a margarita. rocks. salt. (to go with anything)
2. a well-deserved celebratory champagne!
1. a.m. coffee.


  1. I'm with you on 1, 5 and 10 but do prefer a shiraz to a zinfandel.

  2. Anonymous8:01 AM

    lots of hyphenated drinks! They all sound delicious, but I wonder what makes a miami frapp different than the Starbucks variety?

  3. Great list! :) You definitely need to come up to Chicago to try some frozen custard - I took The Englishman yesterday and he said, "This is the first time that food has made me HAPPY." I told him he'd been leading a very sad existence :).

  4. miami frappuccinos are from starbucks, but just consumed in miami. somehow, that always makes them better. :)

  5. bourbon and all her beautiful cousins are conspicuously missing. There should be a separate list for spirits.

    P.S. I had to type "dxuetaj" to publish this comment.
