so last night at bartending class we learned....martinis.
and as i have mentioned before, my teach is a little weird. he has effectively made fun of me [not directly but i knew he was talking about me] every class. just because i was a sorority girl. and went to college. doesn't mean you get to make fun of me. i should be making fun of him.
anyway, last night.
he says "people order martini's these days just to look posh"
first things first. definition of 'posh' : elegant, fashionable
so maybe i fit into the elegant category. i wouldn't classify myself as fashionable. but i am pretty elegant. in a non british way.
so if i already fit in the 'posh' category i am allowed to order a posh drink. and not get judged for it. don't you think?
ALSO, a dirty [vodka] martini is just DAMN good.
AND, it gets you drunk faster. law of physics. 2 oz. is more than your sorry 1 oz. if i am going to pay $12 for a good vodka, i want to actually feel it.
so i was thinking about my rules when i drink last night. i thought i would share them with you.
1. your outfit should always reflect the type of drink you are drinking.
example: you are cheering on your sports team with jeans and jersey. don't drink a martini. drink beer. they just go together. if you are dressed up for a date, drink wine or a cocktail. OR a martini. OR a beer is appropriate. just don't order a natty light. that wasn't cool after you received your diploma.
2. if you are out to get drunk with all your friends, drink rail. it's cheaper. the hangover will be a bitch but you can bet your bottom dollar you had a blast.
3. if you are out to get drunk with your sister [or bestie], drink martini's or wine.
4. don't EVER order a girly drink. [sorry if this offends you--but these are my rules] some drinks i have NEVER ordered. and would ask my friend to slap me if i did: blue hawaiian, cosmo, appletini, tequila sunrise, etc. maybe this is because i still am in the mindset that i drink when i am out to have a good time. i don't want to drink my calories. let's get serious.
so i created a nice little outfit montage for you. so sit back and enjoy. [pretty awesome i'd say]
you like how i added that song in there?? it's one of my faves.
so what do you think? you agree with them?
