While vodka simply disappears into a drink, gin, which has a more assertive flavor, is a little trickier to blend. When a combination is successful, though, it attains a level of complexity that's impossible with vodka. This is one rule in mixing gin which I have learned from my F&B class. After several mixtures and blends, I have conjured up my own mixture of wine. It is a mixture of vodka and white wine, which I immersed overnight with herbs and spices and few drops of syrup.

I selected a good bottle for my mixture and made a pleasant label on it. Wine as they say is a poetry in a bottle and is beneficial to health while brotherhood is beneficial to lifelong friendships. To promote and advertise my brotherhood DeMolay which is a way to have fun, make new friends, and learn leadership and decision—making skills, I made use of its logo as my label on my wine mixture.

Each pair in our class presented its own version of wines at the school lobby. It was actually a contest, but we never knew the result. To the winners and losers, this adage is for us –

“In victory, you deserve champagne, in defeat, you need it!” - Napoleon
