Last night I really celebrated my birthday. We went to Corner Tavern in Back Bay after finding out that the Pour House was completely packed. Corner Tavern had such a great atmosphere. Our server was friendly and the food was decent, but the waiter was just so nice. I drank a blueberry lemonade cocktail…ALMOST ALL BY MYSELF! It was fantastic. I leveled it out with about 4 cups of water (the ratio of alcohol to water is astounding). Maybe it was the alcohol or the great service but I liked our waiter so much I tried to leave a 9$ tip and Sashi put the money back in my wallet.
Later for the actual party I had 2 sips or so of a watermelon martini, which tasted like cough syrup. I will get used to this. I am determined. The pucker smelled so good, it smelled like candy. I thought it would have tasted much better. I then drank half a tiny cup of blueberry cranberry juice and vodka. That one was much better, it only had a little bit over an ounce of vodka but I’m trying to take it slow. Not that it helped at all. Basically I felt sick and did what sick people did.
Verdict: I have a low tolerance. We’re working on it.
