Halloween is being celebrated around the world this week. In adult life while it is fun to wear a costume and celebrate with friends, tricks definitely happen though not the way Halloween is typically portrayed.

That is to say as hardworking adults, real life “tricks” typically are when our alarm clocks fail to wake us up, traffic stops us in our tracks or a work deadline has changed. These are the frustrations of modern life.

We definitely need treats to counterbalance these tricks. What do you do to treat yourself? YOLO! You only live once! Have fun while you are here.

Candy is nice but … if given our choice … we would much rather be treated with alcohol, right? Certainly our CKJY Exports team enjoys a glass of wine, ice cold beer or smooth glass of whiskey. Yes! We recommend alcohol treats for adult life.

Splurge Wine Alcohol Treat Thoughts …

Splurging should be done whole heartedly! Pairing something you enjoy eating with something you love to drink. So … our suggestion is … Spicy Korean Fried Chicken and Wooden Valley Winery‘s Riesling = Delicious SPLURGE!

Wooden Valley Winery's Riesling is an excellent alcohol treat to enjoy with spicy Korean fried chicken.
Want this to share? We can help you import it.

That is to say the Lanza family’s Wooden Valley Winery Riesling starts with an aromatic nose of peach and apricot. Concentrated pear and pineapple come together on the palate. It’s got juicy flavors that are well balanced, by bright acidity and a clean finish. Definitely, an alcohol treat worthy to pair with tasty fried chicken!

Beer Suggestions …

Our friends at Backwoods Brewing Company create delightful flavorful beer treats all year long. Can you beat an ice cold beer from one of Oregon’s best craft breweries? No, you can’t!

Well … it only gets better when you pair it with a classic dripping with cheese American cheeseburger!

Pair this alcohol treat with a delicious American cheeseburger for maximum splurge!

To clarify the Water’s family consistently crafts their Backwood Brewing Company’s Logyard IPA for everyday treats. It is brewed and dry-hopped simcoe, chinook and mosaic, giving it an upfront hop character. Pine and citrus on the nose, with notes of grapefruit, pineapple and melon, followed with a light finish that’s not too bitter. 

#YOLO – You need to sip a cold one and enjoy an American cheeseburger as a treat.

Smooth Sipping Whiskey Alcohol Treat Ideas …

Quality is worth seeking out, isn’t it? That is the way our CKJY Exports team feels – especially when it comes to whiskey. Virginia Distillery Company is an American Single Malt Whisky distillery located amongst the Blue Ridge Mountains in Central Virginia. In other words, the Virginia Distillery team crafts beautifully smooth whiskey treats!

Why not treat yourself any day? What about Wednesday?
