Yesterday was a very good soda day. Jennifer arrived for our usual date night with my birthday present a few days early: A mixed case of The Sopranos soda. (Do follow that link and make sure to watch the commercial, it’s fairly funny. The timing is a bit off but it works.) I’m drinking my first bottle of the Limoncello right now, and it’s pretty good if a touch more sweet than I necessarily like. The good news is that it isn’t a cloying sweet, it’s very clean and finishes exceptionally well. I have a bottle of the Chianti with me at work today as well and I’m hoping it’s at least as good.
After we had a nice walk around the trails at Wood Lake Nature Center and then taking a Kia Rondo out for a test drive we stopped in at the original Chatterbox Pub where I noticed for the first time that they had a “Scratch” Ginger Ale which turned out to be very good. It is definitely a Ginger Ale and not a Ginger Beer since it does go for more of the sweet than the hot and spicy, but it also has a really wonderful clove flavor that adds a lot of depth and character. Very highly recommended.
