I really had to go back and look to see who recommended a night of drinks at Adrift, a fabulous tiki bar located in Denver (it was Natalie). Adrift has walls of handcrafted, solid bamboo poles, hand-carved tikis from Indonesia and China, murals that originated from antiquated cruise-ship menu covers, espresso-hued wooden floors reclaimed from wood in tobacco factories, curved chartreuse and brothel red, faux-crocodile channel-back booths and suspended, conversation-piece light fixtures created from blowfish.
So a few weeks ago, my friends, my boyfriend, and I headed to Adrift for some much needed tiki time (read alcohol). I decided this would be a perfect chance to wear my beautiful custom made rayon Hawaiian wiggle dress and bolero made by MorningStar 84. I had worn it to the VLV15 car show but failed at capturing any photos; finally everyone will get to see this beauty.
Strip mint leaves from sprigs and discard stems. Place leaves in blender with remaining ingredients and 14 ounces of crushed ice. Blend until smooth. Pour into glass or tiki mug.
