This awe­some pack­ag­ing series, Folksaga, was designed by by Caleb Heisey.

Folksaga is a Swedish dis­tillery of akvavit, a tra­di­tional scan­di­na­vian liquor fla­vored with ingre­di­ents such as car­away, anise, or gin­ger. The con­cept behind the project was to broaden akvavit’s appeal to an American mar­ket while main­tain­ing its rich, nordic roots. Each bot­tle fea­tures a pop­u­lar folk tale from Sweden. Ranging from murky mer­maids to ter­ri­ble trolls, these mytho­log­i­cal char­ac­ters are always up to no good — prey­ing upon trav­el­ers lost in the wild. The project was art directed by Paul Kepple of Headcase Design.

Well, I do have a bartender character, so I should be familiar with these. Strictly for research purposes. Of course that research includes tasting these as well.

Unf get in side me.

This is useful even if you’re not a drinker, but my idea of a pina colada is just ‘pureed pineapple with rum’ because that is delicious.

I feel that, if I ever drank enough to get drunk, I would be a sad drunk. And I might write poems with reckless abandon.

I think “sad drunk” is a bit different from “prolific drunk.”  I mean they probably overlap but sad drunk, at least as I’ve experienced it, is not creative at all.  Sad drunk is feeling completely dull, like you can’t do anything about the bad things happening but you have to try but it’s not going to work, etc.  I don’t know about Faulkner and Hemingway but personally I have to have some positivity in me to write.

Sex and alcohol.  Can we not make such a big deal out of them?  And focus on things that are consistently very harmful?
