Really,we eloped to Aruba last summer , but this past weekend we threw a party for our friends and family with our good buddies at Finger Lakes Distilling. Just for fun (and as a surprise for everyone), we had FLD’s master distiller get ordained on the internet and we did a three-minute ceremony during the party.
Thomas hammed it up for us – he donned his overalls, a plaid shirt and a straw hat and took the stage with his southern Alabama drawl . He even offered to get out his shotgun, but I didn’t want anyone to get the wrong idea.
We had cups customized for the event that said “Alexis and Noah got married and all I got was this lousy cup” and we served a lavender basil lemonade (enhanced by the spirits of FLD), Gruet, Domaine Houchart Blanc and Rosé, Gilles Ferran Côtes du Rhône and kegs of Michelob Light.
We’re off to Spain for two weeks with some friends for our “honeymoon”, so I’ll post when I can. I hope you’ll keep tuning in and I’ll fill you in on all the Cava and vino!
