Aspen Times Weekly Libation: Cheers to Gunner

by Jeanne McGovern

I was going to write about a fantastic Prosecco Sake I recently tasted at a sushi/hibachi restaurant, but when I sat down to write this Libations on Tuesday, June 2, the weight of the date set in with full force. One year ago, Gunilla Asher passed away. Gunilla created this column; she reveled in a good cocktail — shared with family and friends — more than anyone I’ve ever known. I shared my last drink with G on May 14, 2014. It was a shot of Milagro (OK, maybe a few shots). Gunilla loved great tequila; she once penned a column about the tequila keg in her home. And while I still can’t believe Gunilla’s gone, and still reel at times with how much I miss her, I will always have Milagro — and a million memories — to keep her alive in my heart. So, as we’ve said since the day she left us … Cheers, to Gunner!
