Of course, sometimes that famous Brit wit doesn't cross the pond. We know some folks who adore pastis, and others for whom a bottle of Jagermeister might be considered quite a smashing (or quite funny) addition to a party.
That said, we can certainly sympathize with the sentiment. After the jump, three things we think you should never bring to a party. Tell us what we missed!
3. Triple Sec - Don't bring this orange-flavored liqueur unless you are certain at least three friends are arriving with tequila. Everyone knows bottles of triple sec are dirt cheap and typically sold in giant volumes. Not classy.
2. Manischewitz - Dropping by a party with a bottle of this alarmingly sweet wine is not gonna be appreciated unless it's seder season. Manischewitz might be kosher: Bringing it to a party as a joke is not.
1. Anything "well" - Inevitably, some chuckle-head thinks his idea of bringing a plastic bottle of bottom-shelf hard alcohol can be passed off as hilarious. Patry attendees are already saving a small fortune by imbibing the mixed drinks others make: Now is not the time to skimp on quality. Going cheap at a fancy bar can be ironically thrifty: Bringing thrift to a party is just cheap.
What bottles of booze would you not dare bring to a social gathering?
