Blended drinks and brandy brews

Unfortunately, it was all wasted on me. I'm talking about the brandy we sampled at the Ararat Brandy factory. While Ararat Brandy is world-renowned for its distinctive flavor and traditional crafting methods, brandy just isn't my cup of, er...tea. However, I'm positive that if I were a brandy-enthusiast, my drink of choice would definitely be Ararat. We tasted three different kinds: the 5 year Ararat, 10 year Akhtamar, and 20 year Nairi. Intoxication sets in from just sniffing the brew, especially the Nairi. I had a hard time even sipping that one.

After Armenian language class last week, we invited the interns and coordinators to our house for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Elizabeth, Kathryn, and Sofia were busy bees preparing lavash rolls and blended drinks.

We made Vram clean up after everyone. Hey, he deserves it. He hardly does anything for us interns. (Just a joke - Vram's ALWAYS got our back!)

When I saw his washing I exclaimed, "Vram, my mom would be so mad at me if she knew you were washing our dishes!" Vram responded: "I thought you all have American standards." We do, but we have also maintained our Armenian hospitality.
