White Tiger Cub, I had almost that exact conversation with my Grandmother about 20 years ago. She was a lifetime non-drinker, of the "alcohol is evil" school of thought. We had invited some friends over for Thanksgiving dinner, including their ~3 year old toddler. We were serving Martinelli's sparkling apple cider. My Grandmother was absolutely
convinced that not only was I serving wine, I was serving it to a CHILD.
I'm still not sure I ever convinced her that it was just fancy apple juice. I showed her the bottle, had her read the label. Told her that even if I was serving wine, which I wouldn't do in front of her, that she ought to trust me enough to know that I would not give alcohol to a child.
Normally my GM and I had a fantastic relationship
and she totally trusted me on everything, but for some reason this one bit of
just stuck in her head....
