Derek and I decided to have a nice dinner and enjoy a mojito or two last night at Eastern Standard. They have very good cocktails and very good french fries but I say no to you french fries! You are not doing my waistline any favors! Instead I went with green beans with almonds as my side.
Well this post is not about green beans it's about drinks. We finished our first round of mojitios and decided we should have one more before we headed home. The waitress suggest that maybe we'd like to try an Old Cuban. I said YES and Derek said hello no!
Thankfully my drink did not taste like cigars and socialism.
Derek refused an old Cuban because he claims it has tequila in it. I say NAY good sir it has agave nectar which is a sweetener, it does not have tequila. So blah blah blah tequila is made from distilled agave. That totally doesn't count! I also looked up the recipe for an Old Cuban and it does not require tequila it just requires simple syrup so basically I win. I also win because this is my blog and I'm in control of the keyboard.
So anyways on my way home I started thinking about this blog post and I was laughing in my head because I'm very entertaining once I get an Old Cuban in me. I got home and decided I wanted to watch the Bachelorette like a man, so I drank an IPA or two and then grew massive amounts of chest hair. It did not make the Bachelorette any less girly but did remind me that I really don't like IPAs that much.
So yea this blog post doesn't really have much of a point except that Old Cuban's are delicious and if you go around saying that to people make sure you clarify that you're referring to the drink and not some wrinkly old dude smoking a cigar.
