Beverages can be so social, can't they?
The stirring of a latte as I listen to a friend tell me a story, the dunking of a teabag as we recount our workweek, or the clinking of crystal champagne glasses as a jovial toast is made... beverages, even moreso than food are the quiet participant in most social occasions. Sure, food is a great way to share and get together with friends - but beverages are always part of the story. Sometimes we'll have get-togethers where a ceramic mug of latte is more than enough - the stories exchanged are so rich and detailed that there's no need for anything more than quiet sips, or appreciative slurps from a straw.
I would have to say that lattes are my go-to social drink, while Brian's is beer - especially Shiner.
What's your social beverage of choice?
(PS. My Amelie get-together was featured here at Project Wedding. Hooray!)
