Creme de Framboise-Update

....... and the verdict is.....
hic isn't it supposed to cure the hiccups! I did add a little to my second glass of champagne but then tried a little more neat. Although I was really keen to try this I have to say I'm not usually that keen on liqueurs. This is a very sweet liqueur and very creamy but it slipped down quite easily enough and I think it might grow on me. Embee was all for opening the other bottle to sample but I decided we would save that for anotheeer daay!! I'm feeling quite relaxed now so goodnight all see you tomorrow. As I'm writing this embee is taking our stash to the cellar.

It certainly looks very pretty! I'm not a big liqueur fan either, but I can imagine that it could grow on you!

Have a lovely weekend Chris.

Looks very pretty in the picture. I like sweet liquer although right now I would love a little drink of almost anything....It's been a long week....

You have a very nice glass to try the liqueur. Although I do not imbibe anymore, my drinking self rather enjoyed Cherry Herring and Frangelica. Hmmm....

I agree with Karmyn - this sounds like something to serve with icecream or maybe bread pudding! It is indeed a lovely glass!

I've got those same style glasses as champagne flutes. I bought them in the '80's and they were very expensive back then. I forget the name but I think they are Swedish or Danish.

sally I was in shock when embee told me how much it cost so it will be for high days and holidays only and for when I fancy a kick to icecream as karmyn suggested!

karmyn vanilla iceream is on my shopping list as that sounds good.

asha hope your weekend is good.

portraitofpeter I assure you I slept extremely well!

my4kids hope you get some weekend relaxation.

mjd we don't use the glasses very often and they were bought back in the 60's and funnily enough embee's sister bought back some "Cherry Heering'

Barbara as you suggest embee thinks they are Sweedish "bubble glasses'

beccy enjoy it you are on holiday you'll be back to normal soon enough!!

Barbara having given this a re-think it might be 'tear drop' rather than bubble but not sure.

I haven't had a drop to drink since before I got pregnant... Oh, how I miss it!

Chris I googled and mine are the Princess design by Holmegaard and called air bubble stems. My stem is slightly different to yours so yours could be adifferent design or manufacturer. Next time I drink champagne I'll post a pic! I have 6 and one has a chip but I think to replace it is quite expensive.

barbara ours were ones embee brought with him when he moved in with us so this is why I don't really know the history of them.
