|normal is a relative term
Desiree herself was next in line, her birthday was a couple of days ago, and I proudly presented her with The Glass from which to imbibe.
Oh, we inbibed allright. Des had a mission to get us all a round of this very unusual drink we'd tried at a recent happy hour.
It sounds gross.
It maybe even looks gross. But it is the polar opposite of gross. It is pure joy.
It is the cotton candy martini.
And yes, you get a martini glass full of cotton candy! Weird? Certainly. Weirdly awesome? Most definitely. Because those precious little shakers for one contain the happy juice, which when poured atop the fairy floss..
|The bartender did the honors for Des, the birthday girl
|We ordinary girls were left to our own wiles
Cotton Candy Cuban
Dark Rum, Mint, Sparkling wine, lime juice, raw sugar fairy floss
Get yours here
Next on the agenda was another fantastic stop where our mission was to procure the plantain carnitas, so the drinks were left to our imagination
La Pinta Sparkler
La pinta pomegranite infused tequila, champagne, lime squeeze
And then things got a little interesting
Tecate beer, fresh lime, worcestershire sauce, pepper with a chili-pepper flake salt rim
Pictured? Perhaps. Enjoyed? Oh, yes.
Can't anyone come up with another birthday before March?
