Pink Drinks

What do you think it says about me that I scored an invite to a function that advertises complimentary pink martinis? Discuss.

Well this makes perfect sense!

It says you are comfortable with your masculinity and are unafraid to be seen supping a pink drink, from a (no-doubt) V-shaped glass with a long delicate stem.

Yes it does make a certain sense. It also means that my friend James, who extended the invite to come along to the function, knows me very, very well. :)

As a purist, my view is you should decline. Irrespective of what it says about you. Martinis are NOT pink.

"Cosmopolitans" are sorta martini-like. But if you're a purist then not so much. Maybe. But they're "pink." And I look fabulous drinking one. Or two.

Three and we're selecting wedding china.

Mikey (TLE) said...

The cosmo is a great cocktail, though I prefer Metropolitans (lose the Cointreau. more lime and use Absolut Kurrant: more sour, less fluffy, kind of like me...)

Three martinis and I'm almost a lesbian. Well, maybe four.

Four martinis and I'll ride you like a cheap girdle.

er, that was me. So how come I got 'anonymous?' Fucking innernetz! Or chardonnay. One or the other.

The Other Andrew said...

Mikey (tle), so martinis are not pink? But, hello girlfriend, I seem to recall them being chartreuse... or is your memory that short?

MG, 'fucking chardonnay!' is my new catch-cry.

Mikey (TLE) said...

"Fucking chardonnay"... is that like the last bottle of the night when the bar is starting to look a little grim?

The chartreuse martini was still clear and uncoloured. The chartreuse (the vermouth substitute) wasn't enough to make it green (or yellow depending on the chartreuse). But yes... even the purist must stray occasionally. If only to know the taste of the impure...

And hey, it's only the repeated doses of four martinis that have made my memory short.
