My friends are some of the wittiest, most sarcastic, and funniest people I know. We poke fun at anything under the sun, cite pop culture references, and deliver it with such a deadpan facial expression that people unused to our (often occasionally crass) humour tend to get uncomfortable after listening in.
It also helps that most of my friends are in the same industry, so our humour tends to bleed over to food and beverage (the phrase “too hard” often gets punctuated by “what she said”, so we’ve learned to exercise caution when using words that could be used as a double entendre).
That said, when one of our friends Chef Jonas Ng told me about launching his new cocktails in his pre-Valentine’s Day singles event, the wordplay on having mixers in a mixer event did not get lost on us.
So, after signing my sister up for the event (Did this have to be said? I think so. Sorry, P!), we went over to check out James and Daughters by Le Jardin’s new libations (descriptions in photos):
Which one are you willing to try with us? Maybe you’d catch us there, cocktail in hand, enjoying a rowdy game of Cards Against Humanity (as we are wont to do). 😉 Cheers!
