Birthday at Drink!

After the lovely tea,  a few girls and I met up at Drink!

Why hello there, don't you look happy to see me!

Drink's general manager, making our scorpion bowl.  

Precision is key.


Every group of giggling girls needs extra straws to fence with!  ...or in our case, use them to poke the extra shot glass full of cherries we requested!

 My favorite photo of the night, hands down.
And in case you'd like to make one of your own, here's the recipe for Stephen Crane's Scorpion Bowl (adapted from here and my recollection of how the bartender at Drink made it)

4 parts rum
4 parts gin
2 parts cognac
4 parts orange juice
2 parts lime juice
2 parts orgeat
1 part simple syrup

Mix and stir in ice to cool.  Add to bowl filled with ice.  Garnish with lime and orange slices, plus candied cherries if you so choose.
