    Or friends that like bourbon and coke or bourbon and ginger ale. Make them a little stronger than normal and they will like the drink.

    If the label is already off, you can always use the back of it for a grocery list.

    I did the same thing until the "collection" started encroaching on the wife's area of the shelves.

    Ok, nuf said. It was a dumb idea. The bottle goes in the recycling bin.

    Anything can be collected. That doesn't mean anyone else will pay anything for it, though.

    Yep,the bottle is not worth anything really unless you have some sentiment towards it.I do recall a thread where in which someone made refrigerator magnets out of the lids after the corks were removed,which was kind of a novel idea I think.

    someone had a cool idea of cutting the majority of the bottle off, and make a tumbler out of the bottom. That's what I plan on doing when mine goes dry...
