I was thinking a drink today would be a good thing. Just one. Maybe two? No, only one. I have had some bad experiences when I consume more than the recommended amount of alcohol.
One time, long long ago I made a complete idiot of myself. Here’s how the story goes…
I was at a hockey game with a group of friends. Apparently we (I) was being a little obnoxious. There was a girl sitting behind me who must have been 18 or 19 who didn’t like my raucous. She kept making unfriendly comments, which I am sure were very on point.
So, since I had consumed more than my fair share of courage that evening I turned around and tried to tell her to stick it. Instead of having something witty and cool to say I said the first thing that popped into my mind.
I will preface this with this…when you are 21 you think you are awesome and old and wise and all that stuff ~ at least I did. So when I saw that the girl was younger than me, by like 2 years I decided that it would be sophisticated to call her out on her infancy.
Me : What are saying girl who is sitting behind me?
Girl: What? You’re being loud..so shut up.
Me: Me shut up? I am 21 now and super wise…who are you?!
Girl: Whatever (eye roll)
Me: You know what you are?
Girl: Tell me
Me: A zygote! Yeah a zygote. Actually you are a zitty zygote.
Girl: Uh, yeah..you’re a moron.
So, yes, I actually called a girl a zitty zygote and thought it was the BEST LINE EVER. So tragic. That is why I don’t drink more than one cocktail. Because I think that I am super smart and super wise and super awesome, when all I really become is a moron. True story.
So anyway, let me share this deliciously yummy drink with you. That you should most definitely only have one of. You’ll want more, but don’t do it. You might make an ass of yourself at a hockey game by calling people zitty zygotes. I don’t know HOW that didn’t catch on.
1 1/2 oz Licor 43
1 1/2 oz of orange juice
3/4 of an oz of heavy cream.
Shake them all together with a cup of ice in a shaker and using a strainer pour into your glass.
I rimmed my glass in orange juice and dipped it in sprinkles.
