    "Alcoholic beverages are becoming aspirational - we choose a beverage because we want to be a certain type of person."

    i.e. a drunk person.

    What kind of person chooses a homemade ethanol martini flavored with a vanilla bean? Because I think I'm about to become that kind of person.

    I apparently want to be Barbie, as my recent drink of choice has been pink and in a box.

    Kim, to answer your question, a weirdo pretending to be on Mars drinks Homemade Ethanol Martinis.

    Would somebody, anybody, please make me more coffee … oh, you mean alcohol. I'm choosing Baileys and soda with a drop of fancy red stuff from France. But not until after I've had more coffee

    Either that or Kim is a high performance machine with fewer poisonous exhaust emissions. How are your exhause emissions, Kim?

    Jen! You look fabulous in the dream house! And your hair is perfect!

    Somebody slap Beega! No-one should drink that!

    According to Ankeny's theory, I'm a robust, complex red with a delicate nose and fabulous legs that is very good now but will be even better in a few years.

    According to Van Bodegraven, I'm just a big winer.

    Somebody needs to be here, first …

    And I'll have you know, it's quite refreshing. Like an iced coffee.

    I've got a ticket to ride, and I don't care! Oh, wait, yes I do...

    My exhaust emissions are copious and robust, lightly scented with vanilla, thanks for asking.
