The Intrepid Explorer
A loosely work-related brief visit by the Intrepid Explorer resulted in a virtually non-stop 48 hour drinking binge. Dramatic amounts of wine, of course, but also a new digestivo, consumed at the behest of Bruno. The little babies lined up here are a Fernet Branca sub-brand, Menta. Fernet Branca is the Mother of all digestives and this minty version is not unpleasant at all after an Italian lunch consumed with an outside temperature nudging 95F and three (or was it four?) bottles of red wine on the table. Phew.
