character style personality

In Switzerland, there is a liqueur called Appenzeller that is made with 42 herbs. It is produced in a chalet on a mountaintop, and is supposed to give you style, character and personality.

At Sultan's wedding in the Swiss German town of Wil on Saturday night, I must have thrown down a half dozen or so shots of this elixir. I asked Lilia if she wanted to join me. Her reply was that if she had any more style, character or personality she might explode.

So I did a couple more shots for her.

The next morning at brunch, Lilia told me that I smelled like 42 herbs.

I took it as a compliment (style, character and personality was oozing from my pores).
