Why does the world believe that women love sugary drinks with vodka in them? And if this is a stereotype that has a basis in fact, then women, why do you love sugary drinks with vodka in them?
(Well, everyone's entitled to like what they like.)
At lunch with a friend this week, we were given a martini menu which we would have ignored had the names of the beverages not caught our eye. They had names like, "Flirtini" and "Whispertini."
"Because women aren't supposed to take up too much space in the world!" I declared. "Or make too much noise!"
I'm surprised the menu didn't include - and I'm sure this already exists somewhere out there - a series of special martinis with artificially-sweetened zero-calorie mixers with names like, "Dietini," "Thintini," and "Teenytini."
"What is this Whispertini?" my friend remarked. "I need a Shoutini!"
"Yeah!" I agreed. "Give me a Loudtini! Or a Bitchini!"
What do you think the recipes for any of these drinks should include?
