The Martini Club: Scorpion V Mango Martini, No Contest

Penelope and The Quirky Ladies hit the town on Friday night. Penny's hair was big, her thirst was intense, and the bar was hopping. (Note the bottles in the background...hee hee!)

Two cocktails battled it out on the field for super-alcohol supremacy.

In one corner....The Mango Martini.

Sam Wayland and Penny started with this refreshing beverage. This cocktail was a mixture of mango rum, mango, pineapple, orange and lime juice with a splash of grenadine. It packed a little bit of punch, but seemed more frou-frou than not.

In the other corner...The Scorpion.

Thanks to the recommendation of Tara Truesdale, Penny decided to live dangerously and guzzle this baby down. Holy Canastas! This one included light rum, cointreau, brandy, sweet and sour, pineapple and lime juice with grenadine. The Scorpion meant bid-ness, serious bid-ness, take-no-prisoners bid-ness, I-don't-care-how-big-your-hair-is bid-ness.

Penny was feeling no pain after imbibing this cocktail.

And the winner, in this epic battle o' cocktails was.....


Another excellent "meeting" with the Quirks. We actually talked about books a lot. Seriously. I'm not kidding. Really.

Sloshy Sunday To All!

I WANT ONE! Where can I get one of these??? Oh, that looks so amazing! I could drink it while watching the parody of 50 Shades of Grey over and over again because my inner goddess needs a scorpion... down there....
