I had my Man.
Some GREAT company!
And ALOT of empty glasses of wine!
All in all, not a bad start to a Saturday night, but then we headed over to the Dallas Design district for the Dewars Discovery event. Now, I've never been a scotch drinker, give this girl a glass of Sauv Blanc or a vodka soda with a lime and we're in business! But I thought to myself, no harm in trying something new. Plus it was free. It started out with a drink called the Dewars smash (it was like a mojito with scotch) which, truth be told, I thoroughly enjoyed!

Chemistry was never my strongest skill (I'll admit I went to TCU because it was one of the only programs where I didn't have to take chemistry). But this was a whiskey chemistry set, so how could you go wrong?? After the speaker gave us his spiel on the history of Dewars and said "scotch whiskey" more times that I thought humanly possible in one hour, we got to make our own scotch from these test tubes. Mine tasted like shit (like it burned my esophagus...). Fortunately, we got to taste some iced Dewars 12 year after making our own and I just dumped my unfortunate concoction of honey, floral, vanilla, and smokey into my glass of iced scotch. After that, I don't remember tasting anything.
