Day 9 and it’s time to head to the nearest dance floor. To get the ladies dancing, how about a nice Lambrini? After all, ‘Lambrini girls just wanna have fun!’…no?… Must say I probably agree with you on that one.
While dancing has been quite a popular social pastime for some time now, prior to the middle ages it was actually considered a sin of the flesh!
Sounds like the plot of that classic 80s film Footloose - a film which incidentally features what my husband considers the best film line ever, ‘I drink better than I dance’. A sentiment I can wholeheartedly agree with! The hero of the film is a young Kevin Bacon, who gets the town dancing again and leads me nicely to my choice of drink for day 9 - bacon infused bourbon!
I must admit when I first heard about this concoction, my reaction was torn between, ‘Why?!!!’ and ‘Mmmm, bacon and bourbon!’ I’m still not convinced it is a genuine drink but it is so bizarre I just had to include it in my Christmas countdown. Sadly not yet commercially available, (although I did see an April Fools advert for Jim Beam Bacon) this is one to try making at home. All you need apparently is a bottle of bourbon and some warm bacon grease. Go on, give it a try, you know you want to!
