“I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.” ~Frank Sinatra
Yesterday was just one of those days where from about 8 am all I could think of is when I could have a cocktail. I’m not ashamed to admit I think about drinking before most people have breakfast. I know all of you have had one of those days… If you haven’t, well you just lead a charmed life – lucky you! Nothing particularly devastating happened it was just one of those funks that I knew would be instantly solved the moment liquor touched these lips!
My type-A personality kicked in the more I thought about the taboo of drinking on a “school night” so I made sure I took care of business and was as productive as humanly possible throughout the day so that I could justify my coveted cocktail.
Alas, my errand running coincidentally led me straight to the source (or did I subconsciously plan it this way?) – I had to drop off ginger to Danny at Wang Chung’s Karaoke Bar (the locally grown ginger courtesy of @codyonizuka will be used in @wangchungs next mixology series and available at the bar soon – homemade ginger beer featured in dark n’ stormy cocktails!)
An ice cold shot of vodka (my new favorite thanks to @wangchungs – Kai Pandan Coconut Vodka) was exactly what I needed to decompress -that and belting out a few lines of Cee Lo’s “F**k You” with some chicas hot of the plane from Long Beach… Thank you Bud for the long awaited #drank and Danny for the great convo to make my day right!
Although I like the pandan vodka straight up, if you’re not that hardcore, check out the latest mixology episode on NonstopHonolulu by Wang Chung’s bartender Henry which features the “Ho-Chi-Tini” made with the pandan vodka.
