Don’t name a STREET after me. I don’t need a DAY named in my honor. I’m not even interested in a KEY TO THE CITY. However, name a COCKTAIL after me, and you had me at “Hello!”
Tuesday night Priscilla Esser & I were honored with our own signature cocktails at the oh-so-hip Lemongrass Thai Bistro in SoChi. We arrived with our minds on the mission and the mission on our minds. Does that qualify as Mission Work? Not sure, but I do know we were there to begin an outreach program. Not only did we get to select the cocktail’s name, we played mixologists for the night and concocted our cocktails, selected the glassware that the drink will be served in and the garnish. Priscilla’s cocktail is “The Satin Doll” and mine, “The Fabulous Bastard.” They are truly Signature! I would say that our mission is certainly of the outreach variety … bellies to the bar, outreaching for another Satin Doll & Fabulous Bastard!
The fun was had, now the work begins. A “Run for the Roses” ain’t just a horse-racing term. No sir, promoting our cocktails will make the Kentucky Derby look like, well, exactly what it is – a race for two year olds! Goodbye Horses! We are sophisticated SoChilites and there is nothing like a little friendly competition to turn up the heat! Especially when Alcohol & Egos are involved. This competition is between the sexy Satin Doll and the slightly older but never-the-less Fabulous Bastard!
So you ask, “What’s so Fabulous about the Bastard?” … EVERYTHING !!!!!!!
All for the Low, Low Price of $9.
Right out of the Starting Gate…Attempt if you dare:
Grey Goose Vodka
Hangar One Kaffir Lime Vodka
Kettle One Citreon Vodka
Zen Green Tea Liqueur
Garnish with a Kaffir Lime leaf & a Thai Chili Pepper. Serve on the Rocks!
*note: the mixologists @ Lemongrass are the keepers of the exact proportions.
