This time they stirred the drink — added a twist — and it came out just right.

Lawmakers on Wednesday approved a revised bill to allow liquor sales Sunday mornings and on Christmas Day — a bill Gov. Jennifer Granholm said she will sign.

The new law also allows free, limited samples of beer and wine at grocery stores, bars and restaurants.

In October, Granholm vetoed a similar bill citing concerns over the volume of free samples allowed as well as a provision to permit restaurants to supply their own wholesale-bought liquor for catered events.

The new bill eliminated the provisions the governor objected to and the compromise shot through the Legislature like beer at a Detroit Lions game.
