The other night while out at The Range with the girls–only in Texas is a rooftop bar called "The Range"–a few rounds of "Pineapple Upside Down" shots found their way to our table. This makes for an excellent girl shot, but one cannot consume such full-sized sweet drinks without an insulin shot nearby. With summer now officially over, it’s time to get the autumn drink on. I know ordinarily this consists of mulled things, or even maple syrup red apple martinis, but I’m on the watch for something new and am most willing to be a Guinea Piggy. I have to admit that one of the benefits of the ‘burbs is getting porch drunk and ordering curbside pick-up from the Cheesecake Factory (though, not in that order). Tonight while ordering, I noticed that they totally rocked the summer addition drink list with their Asian Pear Martini, but it does beg the question, who drinks at the Cheesecake Factory? Seriously.
PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN SHOTS
Absolute Vanilla Vodka, Hazelnut Liqueur, Pineapple Juice, splash of Grenadine (sinks to bottom and looks like a cherry nipple)
ASIAN PEAR MARTINI
Absolute Vanilla Vodka, pear, sake and passion fruit
Now, aside from a few adult beverages to enjoy the Emmy Awards, all I really need is nightingale droppings for a facial and an Ambrosia Judith Ripka bracelet for my world to be complete. Or would applying Visine to an aggravated pimple get the red out? I pushed way too hard and am suffering the popping consequences. It looks as if there’s a bit of raw food on my cheek.
