Grandma probably didn't want to share her rum.

Grandma was more of a Tom Collins kinda girl.

Denise is right! It's nice to read comments without the words "occupy" or "recall" in them. Anyone want to blog about food? If so, send me an email at: dustin.block@patch.com

My dad's mom had a shot of blackberry brandy every night before bed. Kept her heart strong :) Never had a holiday family gathering on either side without a bottle of Mogan David wine (yuck). Neither grandma's could make a potica without rum.
