No. Wine is for Shabbat and Yom Tov seudot.

Wine for breakfast? Only if you're an alcoholic.

A mimosa isn't wine. And it isn't for breakfast, but brunch. Generally speaking if you're drinking alcohol in the morning, you ought to take a good hard look at your life.

On Shabbos morning, don't many abstain from eating or drinking anything until after shacharit (and maybe mussaf), at which point they make kiddush on wine? Don't they therefore break-fast on wine?

If you make bread pudding for breakfast, you can sneak some wine into it.

I am amazed that this thread is seemingly getting serious responses.

While not absolutely forbidding wine on other occasions outside of Shabbat/Yom Tov, the Torah does discourage it. Historically Jews have drunk very little it is only with a decline in generations that we see casual or heavy drinking showing up in our communities.

I could drink a bottle of Moscato for breakfast, love that stuff.

My poor SO still thinks that a Batya is a what, and not a who.

A mimosa is made with champage. Champagne and a fizzy white white are pretty similar.

I'd LOVE to put some Kahlua in my coffee or hot chocolate in the Am !!

As opposed to..... oh, yes, I drink wine for breakfast all the time. My breakfast consists of wine, coffee, and cigarettes. I'm partial to Chateau Lafite 1948, Starbucks Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccinos, and Virgina Slims. Breakfast of champions.

As opposed to realizing it's not a serious question. Xi is not so stupid to not know that wine for breakfast is not considered acceptable by the majority of society. She's being silly or playful or random - but she's not asking a serious question expecting serious advice. If I asked "Should I eat until I weight 500 lbs?" would you respond with "No! Medical studies have shown that morbid obesity is bad for your health!" I mean, duh. Really?

In which case, no response is needed since this is just a worthless topic.

Because Razie recently decided that she can't stand me.

correct, that's why I was surprised that people responded seriously. A silly topic - I expected silly responses, if any.

Because Razie recently decided that she can't stand me.


Remind me when I decided this? I forgot.

Village, I don't see that we are fighting here. This is not fighting.
I also was the only one to defend Sav in another heated thread.

We can discuss it tomorrow or Thursday in chat if you're around.

You were standing up for the truth, not for me per se.

I was still defending you - what's the difference?
Sincere defending someone generally should include a belief in the truth of what the person is saying/doing/etc.

If someone I hated was being pummeled, I'd probably sit back and watch even if I knew s/he was innocent.
You think I hate you, but that I love truth more than I hate you? :p
