It's Friday, the end of every ones hectic week, a time to put up your feet and just relax. Perhaps a time to forget the stresses of the office and laugh a little. For most people the weekend is a time off to just be, but not me. Friday and Saturdays are my work week. The craziest part about my job is that I get paid to help all of you de-stress, put your feet up and hopefully laugh a lot. I get to be in a busy atmosphere with people just looking to have fun. Every Friday my goal is to ensure that everyone I come into contact with is indulging, that I feel is really my job after all. In order to do this I create a cocktail that can be uniquely theirs. Mixing all there most desired tastes into a creation. I don't know if it is just me but I have had this experience at a lounge before when someone created a cocktail just for me, it made me feel special, important and satisfied. So next time you go out engage your bartender, ask them what they make that is different from the rest.
My recent experience like this was with a bar owner who had me sit down and have a cocktail. I make it sound like it was against my will, but it was a busy day and I had hardly any time to indulge without guilt. He finally asked if I had desert yet, I said that I hadn't. within a few short minutes I had a frosted martini glass filled with decadence and garnished with a strawberry. I am not a desert girl very often but this I could never say no to. There are so many different ways to indulge with cocktails its all about finding one that is uniquely yours. Try not to keep all the secret treasures to yourself.
So whether its your Friday Happy hour or desert, just indulge.
