Hey y'all! My name is Peggy and Urban Booz is my brainchild. I am also a PROUD Mom of two incredible kids, have a moderately successful career in Corporate America, a lover of crafting, but most importantly, I have always had a curiosity about what makes people tick and obsess....about alcohol. This is what I imagine Urban Booz should be about...my exploration about spirits, their history, their taste, and how I can make them appealing to my palette with comfort food.
The foodie, that I am, always enjoy incorporating whiskey, brandy, rum or wine in an occasional dessert, marinade or egg nog, but never quite got to enjoying a nice glass to pair with food.
I had even asked friends who seem so knowledgeable, confident and self assured, how did they get to this point in their lives to know and embrace their favorite drink of choice...especially wine. How do I avoid getting sensory overload when I walk in a liquor store?
So I thought why don’t I educate myself...for this it means I deconstruct by exploring, studying and learning before I act on anything...an unfortunate flaw, but at least I have admitted it. Will I ever appreciate drinking wine, beer or other alcoholic beverages? Can I pair it with my dinner or snacks and enjoy it? I hope you will join me in this journey and share your thoughts or suggestions.
Attempting to put my best foot forward...lol!
