As you know, I have written glowingly about the joy of drinking Three Olives Chocolate Vodka (tempered with warnings of the potential dangers associated with drinking this most excellent libation). Similarly, I have written favorably about the taste treat that is Finlandia Mango Vodka.
Tonight on my way home from work, I stopped at a nearby liquor store, which is roughly the size of Rhode Island, to pick up some supplies. After scoring a dozen or so bottles of primo wine and a half case of beer and a half case of ale, I headed for the vodka aisle.
Wouldnâ€™t ya know it? The liquor store the size of Rhode Island that stocks damned near every vodka made, had every kind of Three Olives Vodka on the shelf, except for the part of the shelf that was 12 bottles in depth empty. Yep. NO CHOCOLATE! WTF?
OK, I thought, Iâ€™ll pick up some Finlandia Mango Vodka â€“ a nice summer treat. Wouldnâ€™t ya know it? The liquor store the size of Rhode Island that stocks damned near every vodka made, had every kind of Finlandia vodka on the shelf, except for the part of the shelf that was 12 bottles in depth empty. Yep. NO MANGO VODKA! WTF?
Permit me to connect the dots.
Iâ€™m farookinâ€™ drunk with power.
P.S. I did pick up a bottle of Finlandia Grapefruit Infusion Vodka (as of this writing, it isn’t even listed on the Finlandia Website), which is currently nestled in Mr. Freezer. Iâ€™ll let you know how that works out. But, if it turns out that I like it, Iâ€™m going to snag the other 11 bottles from the shelf before I write anything.
