    2008 Four Roses Mellow Moments Club Glass

    As I sat reading the newspaper in my "library" the doorbell rang. I grumbled and fumbled for a hat to hide my natty hair and sure enough by the time I got to the door there was nobody there. But there was a small box sitting outside the door and it was from Four Roses. Inside was a beautiful little glass teacup and recipe for a Four Roses Hot Toddy. Once again, Four Roses shows nothing but class. Thank you Jim Rutledge and all the rest of the Four Roses staff. I wish you all a wonderful holiday season. Can't wait to try the toddy either...

    I got mine yesterday, it is a nice gift! I think I'll try that Hot Toddy recipe tonight.

    Thank you Four Roses!

    I got mine out of the post box last night. I will just go ahead and say that your delivery was much smoother than mine. The postal employee put mine in the postbox, where it wouldn't come out as there's a small lip around the door...I had to cut the box into pieces while it was still inside the postbox to remove it.

    I already put some cinnamon sticks on my grocery list...

    Went to Binny's today, and when I got home my "present" from FR had arrived. My wife got one too! Thanks Four Roses. Joe

    Got mine too. I made the Hot Toddy the first night, and Leslie has requested on every night since. And I though an Old Fashioned was a pain to make Nice winter, evening drink though.

    Many brands have websites where you can sign up for their "exclusive clubs". This past week I've received the Four Roses glass, a Rebel Yell flask and bandanna, and some Maker's Mark wrapping paper.

    I used that Maker's wrapping paper to gift wrap the BTAC I bought last week. Placed in under the tree with a card from Trina to Wade; what a great wife.
