drinks

i had a new drink at opal divine's today. well, it was new to me. it's a martini called the pinky friedman (bahaha) and it contains tito's handmade vodka, paula's texas orange, fresh lime and pomegranate juice. delicious, delicious, delicious! i finally tasted one of the signature drinks from beauty bar last night (i'm cheap and i just stick to vodka tonics almost every time i go out). the conditioner-vanilla stoli, ginger ale, and lime juice. soooo tasty! worth $9? yeah, if you only have one. i would like to go on a mission to try all of their signature drinks (which i will outline in a second) but i don't know that i want to spend $60 on a mission just to blog about. hehe! okay, here are the other drinks (they're all pressed, martini style drinks):
  • blue rinse-blue-raspberry vodka, sweet & sour, chambord
  • shampoo-jose cuervo, sweet & sour, triple sec, lime juice, chambord (okay, this one sounds disgusting to me because i hate tequila unless it's in a frozen beverage)
  • prell-p.i.n.k. vodka, midori, pineapple juice (this one is most appealing to me. i loooooves me some midori)
  • drop dead gorgeous-p.i.n.k. vodka, pineapple juice, rock star energy drink (holy hell...vodka infused with caffeine and guarana mixed with an energy drink??)
  • p.i.n.k. blush-p.i.n.k. vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, club soda
i am a huge fan of pineapple upside-down cake shots. HUGE fan. i've had them at several bars, including beauty bar, but last night i got a nasty one. if you clicked the link, you know that the ingredients are vanilla vodka (everyone uses stoli), pineapple juice, and grenadine. well, the shots we got last night also had kahlua in them. it was sooooo disgusting. ick. when we were at opal divine's, erin and i were salivating in the general direction of key bar, thinking about the signature popsicle martini-vodka-infused fresh-squeezed juice finished with made-fresh raspberry, mint or pineapple-ginger popsicles. i still want one right now! once again, i feel like i had one more component to add to this subject but i have forgotten it. my brain is not what it used to be.
