Prippy Boozing... Kraken Spiced Rum

This weekend, we had cause to pull out the flask and fill it with something delicious. Prippys love their hard liquor.

So after some debate, Bry and I agreed to try something new that was recommended to us by our fabulous booze aficionado at Schneider's (a must for Capitol Hillers), and to my delight, we purchased the best branded alcohol I've seen... Kraken Spiced Rum.

Now, I like my Dark and Stormy's as much as the next girl... but drinking pure rum is something that made me squirm at first. Then I tasted the rich rum and fell in love. It was the perfect way to stay warm on the brisk fall evening. A perfect flask filler.

P.S. - Smathers & Branson makes amazing flasks, like our Jolly Rodger!

The very same rum rests front and center on our bar! My hubby bought it for the label but discovered he, too, truly loves the taste.

Too bad we aren't still neighbors in Rittenhouse (or that we didn't know each other back then!) - we'd have to raise a glass.

Yo Ho thar' Prippy!
You've uncovered the Krackin...
Put your back into that line and secure the main!

Dearest Mr. Style Maniac,

I could have used that advice prior to my flask o'Kraken being polished off!

Clearly, you have excellent taste on so many levels.

Yours Truly,

that he does, Prippy, that he does.

It is a shame we didn't know each other in our Rittenhouse Square days--I think we would have had a lot of fun.

Whenever I hear about girls and flasks, I think of my college roomie (affectionately known as Murdock). She only drank hard liquor, preferrably Dr. McGillicuddy's Fireball Whiskey, in her own custom-designed flask.

Hopefully the occassion was celebratory, not in sorrow (??).

Murdock sounds like one heck of a character!

And it was a very happy evening... the flask was a matter of convenience.
