Applejack: My Sweet Frenemy
Dear Applejack, I remember when we first met. You dressed in hot tea, me in a bathrobe. It was love at first sight. Your smooth taste and sweet kisses made me better when the swine was attacking. The first time you came by with ginger beer, I know I had found my soulmate. My one true drink. The spicy mix of ginger and apple swirled in my mouth and took me to a place I had never been before. Pure sektisi.
And then you had to go & ruin it. You had to taste too good. So good that I couldn't stop. You took your hold over me when we met at the Velvet Tango Room one night for a nightcap (courtesy of Bar Deville). Then you broke my heart. You went down so easy. And I, a hopesick girl, let you. Damn you Applejack! Damn you! I paid for your love the next day and wasn't sure I could ever return.
And then my cough came back.
Lovers reunited in theraflu applejack tea!
All joking aside, I must let you know that I had some amazing cocktails at The Velvet Tango Room recently. This time they were concocted by Bar DeVille (a Chicago joint) that Paulius invited to the tango room for a good 'ol bartender switch. It was enormous fun (you should have seen me the day after) & I would love to somehow end up in Chitown when the VTR crew hits Bar DeVille in November (accepting sponsored trips:). If your feet are planted in Chicago on November 9th & 10th, 2009 you should FOR SURE check out Bar DeVille and watch The VTR take over and make some of the best cocktails that will ever grace your lips.
