“Claret is the liquor for boys, port for men; but [s]he who aspires to be a hero must drink brandy.” ~ Samuel Johnson
The brandy old fashioned, sweet, is my current cocktail of choice. It’s the unofficial drink of my state, a cocktail that so many people order here that bartenders can make them in their sleep. (And we’re talking a state that has 2.7 bars to grocery stores.) I am not much of a drinker, but I started liking this sweet cocktail ever since I had my first one a few years ago at a restaurant with an SL friend visiting town. I visited the Whiskey Bar at St. Pete’s in search of a brandy old fashioned last night (not a whiskey). I went out on the town wearing the group gift Thora Charron made for the holidays, a cozy mesh bolero that is no longer available (so I hope you grabbed it if you were in the group). My sexy dress is Culco’s exclusive for FROST, a very nicely fitted mesh dress with lace side panels and a lovely rose hem. Ors Quan’s very simple pearl necklace for Shiny Shabby and davidefre’s sexy high heels for Uber are my stylish accessories.
AvengeStore has come out with this beautiful applier for the Catwa mesh heads, and it looked absolutely alluring on the Jessica head. With a choice of brows, the skin has beautiful features and transcends the mesh shape (meaning I don’t instantly notice the mesh head shape but rather the beauty of the skin/face). I tinted the lips and added eyeliner with the Catwa hud native colors as well as using her hairbase. Kuranosuke Kamachi came out with this glamorous, old-school style at Uber, which is fantastic for any night out but especially for New Year’s Eve.
