Etiquette Tuesday: One More Sip

[ 0 ] July 6, 2010 |

This one will be quick and dirty. After a long holiday weekend, I figure you still need sometime to recover and return to “the real world”. With that being said, this Etiquette Tuesday will be short. Just a lesson in wine: white wine (*typically served with fish) can be drank until the very last sip, when drinking red wine (*typically served with red meat, duck, etc.) you should leave a small sip in the bottom of the glass. Red wine tends to leave a bit of sediment @ the bottom of the glass. I’m sure this is something you already know but it did cross my mind this morning when thinking about how awkward I felt the other night when I swallowed everything in my glass (*’til the last drop…) and looked around the table to see this was not the consensus. Improvement! That is what the second half of this summer means to me…consistently improving…down to the last drop.
