Ice-cream and cocktails?
I am repeating this post which I originally blogged on June 12, 2007 because I've had this conversation twice in the last two days, so clearly it's a question still on many people's minds. -- I blogged a few days ago about the ice-cream bar as "something new". Apparently, it begged clarification as I had a conversation this past weekend that went like this: ."Does the ice-cream bar replace alcohol at the event?" "No." "But they don't mix?" Hey, wait a minute, who's the expert here? "Of course they do. As a matter of fact, you should always serve your guests dairy when serving alcohol; it slows the absorption of the alcohol, and ice-cream is dairy." "I have a friend who threw up violently after having a glass of wine [at a restaurant] with her ice-cream dessert." "Cheap house wine would make anybody hurl. It really doesn't matter what you eat."
