    Default Riedel carafes

    In a wine store yesterday, I saw this Riedel cafe (a picture:
    http://pennyhaw.wordpress.com/2011/0...ting-wine-101/)
    It's quite elegant but I don't think I'd buy it since, to me, it
    resembles a hospital bedpan or urinal, eg.

    Perhaps if you served only red wines from it...nah, then we
    get into questions of kidney failure and cirrhosis. You're right.

    Perhaps that decanter is used as a bed pan in some Hollywood hospitals
    that cater to top movie stars :-). To make more of an impression on
    your guest you might serve instead a bottle of snake wine on your
    dining table. See http://www.thailandunique.com/store/...skey-c-11.html
    .. For a much larger selection see http://www.thailandunique.com/store/...skey-c-11.html
    .. This site is being revised, but should be shipping again soon.
    Besides cobra, toad, scorpion etc wine and whiskey, they have a wide
    variety of snacks to serve with it. Rhino beetles, pregnant crickets,
    and buffalo dung beetles are just a few of many choices. Don't use
    your best tablecloth, as there is some risk that an old great aunt may
    throw up on your table.
