|Big and blue, like Babe the Ox|
The peach schnapps eventually put an end to any delusions of a successful drink. Before tasting the Catalina Margarita I noticed that it had a powerful peach aroma. On my first sip I didn’t think the peach taste was overpowering, but it was a bit sweet. At first it seemed that Mrs. Bottle liked it quite a bit more than I did. This in itself wasn’t surprising because she is a like a happy-go-lucky pixie who is always flitting around looking for the positive. I, however, have a skeptic’s heart. I would base my final opinion on a hard look at the facts and nothing more.
Even after an hour there was still some left in the glass. It wasn’t just backwash either since the color was still a vibrant blue. I knew Mrs. Bottle was becoming less enamored with it as well when she tried to force me to drink it, since she is loath to share her alcohol. “DRINK THIS!” she yelled as she shoved the glass in my face. She didn’t even care that I was trying to watch Tosh.0. Hopefully I didn’t miss any videos of people getting seriously injured. That is always hilarious.
