Hennessy Artistry @ Velvet
high happy people
This happened exactly one week ago but I was too busy procrastinating to post it up. I haven't been clubbing in ages. Sometimes I feel I may be getting too old for this.
TOO OLD FOR FREE BOOZE AND GOOD FUN?
OVER MY DEAD BODY!
PLEASE. MORE. INVITES. FOR. BOOZE. PARTIES. GIVE. ME.
BOOZE. EVENTS. MAKE. ME. SO. HAPPY.
ST has all the details about the event right here.
Because I'm a blogger and a bit of a narcissist this post WILL have pictures containing a lot of ME in it having a helluva fantastic time.
Did I mention that I had a helluva fantastic time? I did? Well I have to say it again.
I had a HELLUVA fantastic time!
always posing with men. so shameless
This is by far THE BEST event I’ve been to, EVER! Why? Because the booze did not stop coming until even after we left! If I died and gone to heaven, I expect ALL booze parties in heaven to be like this.
FREE-FLOWING BOOZE + DECENT ENTERTAINMENT + DECENT AMBIANCE + GOOD CROWD = EVERYBODY HAPPY + SUCCESS!!!!!
That night I discovered that Hennessy can be mixed into COCKTAILS! OHMYGOD. I KNOW! WHICH CAVE DID I JUST CRAWLED OUT FROM?
wah ky's face the same colour as my dress
I seriously had no idea that there was any other way to drink Hennessy other than how my parents and Chinamen drink it - neat or on the rocks. I thought mixing Hennessy with anything else would be sacrilegious, like how mixing Glenfiddich single malt with anything else will reserve you an express ticket straight to the hot fiery pits of Mount Doom in Mordor (but I do it anyway because I’m still not used to that lingering bitter taste that stays at the back of your tongue after drinking any hard liquour straight, sorry). That’s why I was never interested in Hennessy, that and the fact that it was associated with.. er.. more “mature” people and chinamen
Until that Friday night where we were continuously plied with 4 cocktails made from Hennessy.
Of the 4, Miami was my absolute favourite. It was so damn delicious I was instantly and madly in love. It tastes exactly like how long island tea with a dash of mojito would taste like. A blend of sweet and sour with a lingering refreshing aftertaste. Absolutely YUM. The other 3 paled in comparison for me. To be fair, I think it was because Miami was the strongest tasting cocktail of the 4 and they made an oversight by serving it as the first cocktail, making the other more subtle cocktails taste bland.
I loved Miami so much that every single time a server passes by with a tray full of those delicious glasses of pleasure I grabbed as many as my tiny grubby hands would allow regardless of whether I have finished my drink or not. Besides, the server was being real friendly and nice, always asking if I wanted anymore every time he sees me.
Friendly servers rock. They make me happy. If I was made the supreme ruler of all beings, I would cast in stone that friendly servers are the only type of servers that will ever exist. Friendly servers make people happy. Happy people make good parties.
kim so hot can die
Anyway I digress. Where was I? Oh yes. Hennessy Miami is divine. I went crazy looking for the recipe which I easily found on the Hennessy’s website! I thought it would be a mixture of 4-5 other type of liquors but no! Miami is really too simple to make at home! Here is the recipe, because you’ll have to see it to believe it:
1 part Hennessy
1 part fresh lime juice
1 part syrup
Fresh mint leaves
I am totally going to make this at home all the time and drink and he happy and have I told you that I totally and absolutely love this drink I think I have but I have to say it again because I love it I love it I LOVE IT okay I go make some more now then maybe post about it later kthxbai!
I like this picture, and that is why it's here.
