Looking Cool = Epic Fail

"There is something liberating about not pretending. Dare to embarrass yourself. Risk." - Drew Barrymore

I live in Tulsa but love to spend as much time as I can in Santa Fe. There are definitely differences between these two cities – in altitude AND attitude. 

When I am in Santa Fe I try to look cool by eating organic and being green (environmentally friendly – not sick from a hang-over). Recently when I was in Santa Fe, I purchased some groceries at Whole Foods and had forgotten my canvas bags to carry them in. Well, to be honest, I didn’t exactly know WHERE my canvas bags were but that’s not cool. The clerk gave me a disgusted look and disapprovingly said, “You don’t have your bags?” Not wanting to seem uncool, I told her that I would just carry my items without a (God forbid) paper sack. After all, I only had about 10 items. No problem, right?
I walked across the parking lot with my arms full of groceries, looking like an organic shoplifter. As I opened my car door, I dropped my 6-pack of root beer (hey, it was Blue Sky). Enjoying their new-found freedom, all six cans rolled off independently across the parking lot. I tossed my other groceries in the car and went after the run-away root beer. As I picked up one of the cans, I stood up and smashed my eye into the corner of the car door. I heard someone say “OUCH!” Holding my eye I gathered the rest of the root beer and got into my car. Still hurting, I thought I would comfort myself with a drink. So I opened a can of root beer and, you guessed it, it exploded all over me and the car. Looking cool = epic fail.

In honor of my run-away root beer, here is a Root Beertini recipe for your next girlfriends’ get-together. But drink it; don’t wear it.

Root Beertini

2 oz Three Olives Root Beer Vodka
1 oz amaretto liqueur
One scoop of vanilla ice cream

Shake the vodka and amaretto with ice. Strain the ice and pour into a martini glass. Float a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the center of it. Enjoy!
