When it comes to buying alcoholic beverages, I'm usually at a loss. My taste buds can't distinguish a great pinot noir from a not-so-great one. So when in doubt (which is all the time) I buy based on how cute the bottle is. And since I like to buy super cute bottles of wine and beer, I tend to keep them in hopes to later use them as vases. So when I had an impromptu cocktail party the other night, my extra bottles came in very handy.
