I bought a metric SHIT TON of booze for Burning Man this past year.
Handles upon handles of gin, vodka, rum, and tequila.
I also bought THE CHEAPEST booze you could buy.
Nothing over $10 per 1.75 liter bottle.
And plastic bottles, please.
None of this fancy, schmancy pudding pants glass stuff.
[Actually, this is perfect on playa because plastic = no broken bottle]
The thing is, Tejas and I BARELY made a dent in our booze supply.
Oh, we (and when I say we, what I really mean is he) certainly drank more than our fair share of mead, I mean booze.
But we just didn’t drink OUR SUPPLY of booze.
Truthfully, what we really should have done is started giving it out to participants AS SOON AS WE ARRIVED ON PLAYA.
I would need 20 livers to process that much booze!
All this is to say that I am now paying the price.
I REFUSE to buy more booze while I still have the cheap stuff taking up space in my wet bar.
So I’m forcing myself to drink it.
It’s not that good.
Definitely for MIXED drinks, not martinis.
So my question is, am I just too stubborn or am I just cheap?
