This is my first sponsored post courtesy of BzzAgent. Having signed up about a year ago, I never took part in any campaign until I saw my favorite thing advertised in Gmail: alcohol. FREE alcohol, no less, so how could I refuse? Don’t worry, my blog isn’t going to turn into some corporate-run advertisement. With work school, and bills to pay, who doesn’t enjoy a nice adult beverage in the evening? Especially when you don’t have to pay for it…
After receiving a giftcard in the mail, I went to the liquor store and picked up a couple bottles of Sawmill Creek Wines: a White Zinfandel because it is pink and Cabernet Sauvignon because I figured that’s what classy people drink. Considering the wines themselves are under $9 I don’t know why I thought that… Me? Rational? Nah.
Confession: I am not a wine fan. Why, you may ask, would a young lady prefer gin over the chic elegance of wine? Don’t I want to swirl and sniff the liquid happiness that pours out of maroon-colored bottles, all while blurting out adjectives like ‘oak-y’ ‘tobacco-y’ and ‘get-me-drunk-y’? Well, long story short, my distaste for wine was cemented Christmas Eve when I got quote-unquote “super happy” on my best friend’s homemade wine as she tried to KILL ME BY BAKING GLASS INTO A POTATO CASSEROLE. I ATE GLASS. I THOUGHT IT WAS CRUNCHY POTATOES.
Please don’t blame me when I say I don’t care for fermented grape juice. It reminds me of the time my best friend tried to kill me. Now, back to the Sawmill Creek Wines. The other night before going to a concert, my sister and her friend polished off the bottle of White Zinfandel. They liked the light, dry, raspberry flavor and would definitely purchase it again considering the inexpensive price point. I also had a sip and I’m sorry Sawmill Creek Wines, but it reminded me of attempted murder… Delicious murder, but murder nonetheless.
