We applaud the philosophy behind this article.
That being said, we take umbrage with their suggestions.
Hence, let us offer our own recommendations for the Rooseveltan feast. Read the article, then return here for our idea of a corrective.
Orval Trappiste. The ultimate aperitif. Serve it in Champagne flutes and wow your wine-snob friends.
