The general manager asked all the bartenders to create a new brunch cocktail. She told us the servers will try them and they will vote. The winner goes on the menu. As you know creating cocktails is not my specialty, but I like brunch. Brunch combines three things I love: food, coffee and daytime drinking.
I know immediately what my drink is going to be, an iced vanilla latte: vanilla vodka, baileys and espresso, DONE. My cocktail wins by an overwhelming number of women servers.
I’m ecstatic. My cocktail won. I tell my co-bartender,
“I can’t believe I won. My cocktail is from 2000.”
He looks skeptical. I offer,
“It is definitely pre-Sex In The City.”
