a story about holiday spirits 🍷🍷🍷

    so tonight during my family's xmas party my aunts decided to make "Glug"
  2. •
    apparently Glug is an old family recipe to drink in the winter months
  3. •
    The Recipe: bourbon and red wine, cloves, almonds, raisins, cinnamon sticks, and sugar

    you boil it for a few minutes, add sugar, and then LIGHT IT ON FIRE 💥
  5. •
    Some descriptions I heard about this mystical drink before trying it:
    "smells and tastes like Viks Vapor Rub." "like warm cough syrup." "if you have a cold or a cough, one whiff of Glug and you'll be all cleared up."

    this drink sounds Na$Ty
    what's all the hullabaloo?
  7. •
    I guess a tradition in our family was that the youngest male had his head held over the steam of boiling Glug until his nose started to bleed or he couldn't breath
    a sign of becoming a Bassett man or something? and I'm supposed to DRINK this?!
  8. •
    my grandfather and uncle (both deceased) really enjoyed Glug
    so my aunt made a tear jerking toast in honor of both men and we toasted
  9. •
    I took my first sip
  10. •
    💥POW💥 Glug hits you right in the chest
  11. •
    it tastes like horrible, deplorable, disgusting hot cough syrup with a spiced wine aftertaste and the occasional floating raisin drifting about
  12. •
    noses were scrunched while drinking but we all suffered through The Glug Experience
  13. •
    so that was fun...

    in conclusion, family traditions are weird
