In days of olde, they drank mead, yes?
So, there I was at the SAQ the other day when I spied a bottle of mead with a medieval label on it promising it was the same brew that bold knights consumed, presumably at the round table. It’s a honey wine — 16% percent alcohol.
Mmmmm . . .
So, with visions of Camelot and hunky, bold knights dancing in my head — yes, and Maid Marian, too — my partner and I purchased said mead and are planning a medieval evening, during which I get to wear my medieval skirt and blouse etc. We’ll listen to medieval music in a candlelit room while we sip on the mead, and who knows which knightly genies from days of olde will emerge from the bottle along with the mead . . .
The decanter holding the mead will make a lovely vase afterward. It is a heavy vessel, something you would expect to find at the round table in Camelot.
Sigh . . . Just call me Maid Jillian . . .
