The Bourbon Renewal is a modern classic created by famous bartender Jeffrey Mogenthaler back in 2004. Those of you who love sours will absolutely love this drink and it’s kind of like a second cousin to the El Diablo cocktail I shared previously.
This one of the earliest drinks I shook up on my Virtual Happy Hour series on Instagram. I shared this drink back on March 30th – when Tiger King was all the rage and dominating the social media universe with hilarious memes. In honour of that hit Netflix show, I hosted a Tiger King themed episode of Virtual Happy Hour when I made this tipple. I’ve embedded that episode here for your viewing pleasure.
If Joe Exotic can manage to find love, with not only one much younger and more handsome man, but an entire harem, I’m confident there’s hope for me yet.
I recently drafted a job posting for a position I’m hiring for in my day job and it got me thinking, “Dating would be much more efficient if it were more like hiring.”
You could outline the job description, requirements, years of experience, and desired assets. So, I’ve put together the following posting for my desired life partner.
Currently Seeking: Romantic Service Provider
Compensation: This is an unpaid placement with a generous benefits package.
The opportunity: This is an enormously rewarding opportunity for passionate individuals looking for their next challenge. If you are an energetic, self-starter with an appreciation for aesthetics and the finer things in life, let’s talk.
Your time will be divided between having deep talks, eating, drinking, napping, romancing, shopping, and taking in arts and culture. This role is well-suited to a bon vivant with an affection for craft cocktails who is not easily intimidated by a strong, independent woman.
Those who prefer to spend all their spare time outdoors, in the woods, or any location without running water, need not apply.
Desired Skills and Assets:
There will be a three-month probationary period after which your performance will be reviewed and the hiring manager will determine whether or not you get to meet the parents.
If this sounds like you, please apply within.
