INSPIRATION:

I love when people don’t know what they want… well sometimes lol. But the benefit is, it allows me to turn around and look at a few things and make something interesting. Now normally a 10 pm muddle is rare… lol, but we weren’t busy and a lady came in headed straight to the bar as her friends shuffled in to the bathroom…. older, and seemed to be dressed for an occasion I couldn’t quite pin down. She asked me to make her something tropical and pretty.

Her friends would be a while lol. I laughed and said… ‘4 women in one bathroom? Have a seat love. I’m mickey.’ After a few more bits of combo and some fine muddling and witty banter, we came up with this. It was quite amusing… amusing her with simple muddling and sheer boredom lol. As she reached out her hand to taste the cocktail… the rest of her party came a scurrying out the bathroom. Bride to be at the head of the stampede and swiped the drink right from her grasp! She loved it and I had to make 5 more… lol that’s all.
