St. Patrick, Mark Twain, Catholicism, Champagne
I plan to depart from tradition today as I toast to Bishop St. Patrick and Catholicism. I’m toasting with champagne. Ghastly? Well add a drop or 2 or 3 of Irish Mist liqueur to the bottom of the glass. Taste of clover, heather and herbs.
I’m with Mark Twain who lambasted the Catholic church in his early years but later was more accepting and understanding yet cool. I like Mark Twain because he is said to have once proclaimed, “Too much of anything is bad, but too much champagne is just right.”
