I am in the midst of the extended project of “committing a Neatness” in the house. I do not expect to truly organize every room (see Tasks, Herculean) but do hope to get the more common or apt to be seen into a semi or quasi presentable state. I am up against years of accumulation (not so much hoarding as sloth) so it will be a while.
I had been considering, and really still am, not replacing each bottle in the liquor collection. Some would stay, of course. I’d not care to be unable to make a Manhattan, Martini, Sazerac, and a few others. But do I really need the seldom-used Frangelico and the I-still-have-this Chambord? And then, just now, I found yet again how wonderfully convenient it is to see a cocktail and just grab the right bottles and make it without having to wait or make a trip to get this or that. Maybe I do need to reduce the collection some. But not severely. Perhaps the right solution is more shelves and have the most commonly used most accessible and any rara avis can be off a bit.
And since I’m wondering, are there any “no, you need to keep that because of this” drinks that call for the Frangelico or the Chambord?
