One of my goals for 2005 was to invent a cocktail. It's only February and we already did it! Get ready for your new favorite drink. . . .
It's called "Casino Royale" but you can call it "Casino" if it's easier. It's made with Chambord
and Miller High Life
, the champagne of beers. I was pretty sure it was going to make us puke instantly, but we made Lucas the bartender (and red string wrangler/tape deck player
) do it anyway. It turned out to be unbelievably delicious. It's sweet like girl beer, but doesn't give you the sugary sick feeling because of the High Life. And boys aren't embarassed to drink it because it comes in a regular beer bottle. It is soooooo good!!
At first we were calling it Kir AuFell ("awful" with a French accent) but Will
and Paul changed the name to "Casino Royale" after their favorite movie/trainwreck. There were so many orders that Lucas had to change the name to "Casino". He didn't have the time to be messing around with all that "Royale" business.
This is huge. So huge! It might be the most important thing I've ever done. Start ordering it now so the bartenders will be ready for summer.
In other awesome news, Plug in Music
reviewed our new EP So Pretty
, and boy were they nice. No only did they call us a "legitimate indie-pop band" but they took the time to notice Will's "brief Billy Joel, NYC-circa-1974 saxophone solo." The Hazzards LOVE Emil @ Plug in Music!
We had an awesome time at the show last night, and not just because we were all drinking Casino Royales. The Fabulous Entourage
was fabulous, of course (did you know that they are an art pop sensation?). And my new favorite pirate band is Jolly Ship the Whizbang
. For real. We didn't get to see Jesus H. Christ
because we had to work in the morning, but word is they were also amazing.
What a fun and important night. I love Casino Royales!!
