i can’t give it away

I have seriously tried to give this to everybody in this room, and nobody wants it.

Never in my life have I ever been around a journalist who refuses free liquor. Now, more than 20 have refused “Domaine de Canton,” which is labeled as “French ginger liqueur.”

It even came with a recipe book. But once the bottle was cracked and people actually sniffed, it was over.

So now, it just sits on my desk in its pretty bottle. Good marketing, you know? It’s very pretty. And I’ll even admit that some of the recipes in the accompanying book don’t look bad at all. I’d be willing to cook with it, but I do feel pretty confident that ANYTHING you mixed this with would be immediately overpowered by ginger.

But if ginger’s your thing, party on. I got a whole bottle with your name on it.

    Who needs that much ginger?
    I think somebody’s trying to be the next pomegranate.

    I can’t imagine how you could just DRINK this. Like I said, I don’t think it would suck to cook with it, but drinking it? That thought gives me goosebumps.

    I could dare the kid in college who used to drink 99 Bananas/Rumple Minze/Baileys/Corn whiskey suicides to drink it. He’s still kicking.

    I hate to be the odd ball, but I think it’d be pretty good. As with most Liqueurs, it’s not meant to be consumed straight up, but mmmm ginger spiced latte sounds really good right about now. 😉

    the hang tag has some recipes and all are good – I don’t like it straight but it’s acutally a very “mixable” product – how did you come accross it?

    Paige: GROSS.

    Erin: That’s the thing … I think if I were someone who LIKED ginger, this would be fine. And really, the book that came with it — I don’t care what you coat filet mignon in, I’ll eat it. I could cook with this, but I couldn’t imagine putting it in anything I drink. I’ll save this, then, for the TW-Erin Victory Tour.

    Rene: It came to me in the mail. I was surprised to see a huge bottle like this just show up.

    Give me a job where people send me liquor in the mail…

    Will we be required to get jheri curls like the Jacksons in ’84? 🙂
