How do I gracefully become a (young) non-drinker? [more inside]
A few months ago I received a metal cocktail shaker as a gift. The first time I used it with ice, the top and bottom became welded together, presumably because the cold caused the metal to expand. Fast forward to the present -- they're still stuck fast, and I'm sick of gin and tonics. How can I get them apart and get back to mixologizing? [more inside]
I wanted to buy (at some point) a really, really expensive bottle of liquor or wine (no Champagne). The idea was to hold on to it for a very long time until one day something so important happens in my life that I deem it worthy to drink the alcohol in celebration. Any suggestions on what to get?

What are the liquor laws in New York State? I tried looking on the NYS common law page, but I couldn't understand them. I am 20 years old, and therefore cannot purchase alcohol. If I were to make my own wine using this method, would it be legal? Does the Law cover production and consumption of liquor, or does the "drinking age" just cover the sale of alcohol? I know that it is legal to make small quantities of alcohol for your own personal use, but I don't know about the age thing.

What are some tips for moderating one's drinking? I love to drink two, sometimes three, times a week, and it's a positive experience for me when I keep it moderate.
