There’s a bar here in town that’s been around since 1950. My dad used to go there in the late ‘80’s when he lived in this area. Sometimes it’s quiet and sometimes it gets loud with the entertainment, and some of the craziness of the younger generation will drive us older people nuts, but mostly you can have a good time with your friends. And if you walk in without a friend, you’ll probably leave with at least one new friend. Not meaning that in an off-color way so get your mind out of the gutter. 🙂
One night I walked in and the bartender asked me what I wanted. I said, “Well, I want something strong, sweet but no pineapple, orange, or coconuty stuff.” She said, “I’ll be right back.” She returned, handed me a tall, sweaty glass, and waited for me try it. It was delicious. She said she tweaked an Alabama Slammer. It was amazing. From then on this new drink was known as the Andi’s Special.
Whenever I would go there I’d ask for it by name and they’d make it for me. A couple of my friends started asking for it as well. But the two bartenders have been replaced. So I keep the recipe on my phone which is a good thing as I want others to make it. The owner of the bar has made it the best so far. 😉
That’s all I have for today. Oh except, I wouldn’t advise drinking too many of these the night before you have to go to work. Cheers!
Have an Andi Special weekend! ♥️
