    Oh, there are a lot of shitty gins. Gins that taste like cough syrup.

    I hadn't had gin since my 20s, then read an article that literally piqued my interest enough to give them a try again. Same with bourbon and Scotch.

    With gin it's pretty much anything that is juniper forward that puts me off... I've tentatively tried a few of the ones that are supposed to be better such as Sapphire.
    Hendrick's and I get along. So that's where I stay. It's a safe place for gin and me.
    Gin is not one of my more adventurous avenues.

    Bourbons I LOVE, and I'm a genuine snob over.
    And Rums.
    Scotch I admit I have not learned to like yet... I try on occasion. And fail. I was given Dewar's White Label awfulness by an alcoholic relative because they thought it would be funny when I was a child. ICK.
    I do like a few Irish Whiskeys though... Red Breast 12yr is my solid go to.
    Tequilas too I'm picky about and enjoy if they are good... but GRRRR *angry face* at the bad ones.

    As little as I actually drink, you'd think I was an alcoholic by my liquor collection!
    That's what husband teases me about anyway.
    I once bought a small bottle of Remy VSOP(they had crap for cognac selection, and I was leaving it at brother's house anyway) and a decent bottle of Chardonnay (Jadot,$15 maybe) while visiting my brother... and the cashier lady wanted to know if I wanted the little bottle of Remy bagged separately for the ride home. I think she thought I was going to DRINK it. And I was all momentarily confused and said "No, I'm just baking a chicken..." Which really got her attention I guess, because then she looked at me like I had two heads. Silly rural folks.
    Admittedly, cooking generally only takes about half a bottle of wine, which means the cook should enjoy the other half during the meal preparation IMO.

    There's a lot of truth to that, and I think the dearly departed Ms. Childs would agree also. She was one of the first to advise that we never cook with a wine that we wouldn't drink. And then when we watched her cook, she showed us why.

    I loved watching Julia Child when I was growing up... on PBS I believe. The old black and white programs. Heck, I still like catching those old shows sometimes.
    I'm pretty sure that watching her informed/formed my ability to cook, which I have done from a very early age, as much as spending time with my grandmothers in their kitchens did.

    Hell yeah, PBS. That's all my mom watched for a long time, so it's all I watched too. We used to watch This Old House and Yankee Workshop with my dad.

    PBS was about all we kids were allowed to watch up until I was 6 or 7. I knew Fraggle Rock, Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, Sesame Street like most kids knew Transformers.

    I cried when Fred Rogers died. It was like losing a member of the family.

    It really was. I think I cried more for him than for some family members.
