Sample text

If you really want to be flamboyant, some restaurateurs will freeze the actual vodka carafe inside a champagne-style bucket of water and serve it in a block. It looks impressive and may be effective to keep the vodka chilled, but the process is very cumbersome (especially if using a domestic refrigerator), and the resulting icemade carafe will be next to impossible to handle at the table.

One of alcohol’s perceived virtues is, again if consumed moderately, to free one from certain inhibitions and cares.
