Cocktails. You know, those magnificent looking mixed drinks with umbrellas, fancy straws, fruits, herbs and all that. Yes, those ones. The ones that make the ‘kuteseka ni kwa muda’ boy child break a sweat upon sight and the hard to get 21st century modern and sophisticated woman elated.
Cocktails are the truest measure of making it in life. According to influencers and Instagram models at least?. These drinks give you an air of sophistication. Not to mention they are beautiful to look at, almost as lethal, and more importantly sweet. Chasing alcohol with facial expressions is not really the way to live. Remember, vices were meant to be enjoyed. Responsibly so, might I add. Until the liver cirrhosis comes at least?.
