So the other day I go into the liquor store, grab 2 bottles and head straight for the checkout.
The cashier looks at me, looks at my items, looks at me again with a puzzled face and the conversation goes something like this:

“That’s an interesting combination you got there.”
“Why yes it is”
“What are you going to do with those?”
“Oh, I am going through a classic cocktail book and making all the drinks, and I needed these
two ingredients.”
“You’re not mixing those together are you?!”
“Umm, no, they’re for different drinks.”
“I see. Well, good luck?”

Apparently, not many people buy these said ingredients, and fewer of them still look like they need to have their ID checked. Oh well, such is my misunderstood life of soon to be cocktail knowledge and snobbery.
