So I'm researching cocktails at the moment... for my books. Ahem.
I know, my job is so hard (places back of hand to forehead.)
Anyway, I came across an article about the manliest drinks when I was trying to figure out what to have my protagonist schlepping down at a bar and I wondered - Do any of you look askance when your man orders anything froofier than a beer or whiskey neat?
Hubby tells me the other night that, sometimes, he orders a Cranberry Vodka at dinner meetings to which I said, "Oh, a Cosmopoliton," to which he said, "No, a Cranberry Vodka..."
To which I said, "Oh, right, a Cranberry Vodka" - my mistake, riiight.
Has anyone else come across this manning up of a girlie cocktail?
I mean, first skinny jeans and now this! What is going on in the world?
If Adam Atlas (from TOA) had to poor some dude a Cosmo, he might just twist a nut or suffer head implosion. We can't do that to Adam - he's way too hot. He does manage to create Marley a peach champagne cocktail on the fly in King of Kings (third book in the Tides of Atlantis series and my current WIP) but only because she tells him he can't so - manliness preserved. Boom.
Just wondered if anyone else out there had any thoughts on the matter. Cosmo or Cranberry Vodka?
To either, the correct answer is "Yes, please."
