Guess where I'm drinking?
Dear Mr. X,
I'm admittedly smitten with your new cocktail lineup, but here's the problem: I'll drink one and want two, three, four more. And see, I'm normally toting my kid around with me, and since he's only ten and incredibly impressionable, I have to either drink responsibly, which limits me to one cocktail, or send him off to the little boy's room for an extended vacation so I can drink a half dozen more without him witnessing his own mother's propensity to whoop it up like a lush. Neither approach is preferable, but if you could bottle and sell that cocktail -- the one with the fresh lemon juice and confetti of basil -- then I could send the kid off to a slumber party, crank the music and drink myself into a stupor at home.
If you can guess where I'm drinking, you can join me. Maybe.
