Having been married the first time at age eighteen, with the legal drinking age being twenty-one, I didn't really have a big twenty-first birthday party with all the celebratory requirements. So last year when my friends heard about the lack of a proper twenty-first birthday party, they threw me one.
But before I was allowed to attend the party, I had to get back into shape for a night of wild drinking. I had given up drinking when I had kids, and hadn't been drunk in over twenty years. We would go out to the local bars and they would introduce me to new drinks to tantilize my tastebuds. My favorite was the pinapple upside down cake shot. It was sweet enough to mask the harsher taste of alcohol
At the party, I learned many wonderful games such as flip cup, which is where you have two lines of contestants each slamming, drinking and flipping their red solo cups onto the table top. We also traded all night bracelets (which I think we were supposed to use on our bottles to keep track of them) with titles like lush or frisky. It was fun to give a bracelet to someone and tell them that they were acting like the label. Needless to say, I had a wonderful time and enjoyed my over twenty years too late twenty first birthday party.
Now that I survived the party, we want to do it each year. Hopefully I won't have to start training from scratch. After all, I already throw a little coconut rum into my lemonade on occasion. :)
What are your memories from a big party night? Do you have any favorite drinks I should try?
