4 years after first trying the Manhattan at Derek’s holiday party and creating my Facebook picture that lasted for years, I guess it was time to me to give it a try again given my new fondness for alcohol.
First I’d like to thank Derek and Shanna for hosting an awesome party again!
Ryan made me another one to see if I would like it now. It was not as horribly disgusting as my first experience, but it was still pretty gross and hard to go down. I tried to down it like a shot, but it just couldn’t make myself to do it. I did managed to finish the drink after 10-15mins.
Then Derek convinced me to try red bull + vodka, his drink of choice for the night. I dislike red bull in general, but he told me the vodka makes it taste better. Oh what a lie that was. What it made it taste like was cough syrup. I didn’t bother finishing it.
Despite having some really bad tasting alcohol, I did have some really delicious icewine as well as some Moscato (which I mistakenly called it mosquito throughout the night).
