The Decay of the Debosa

Folks you can call me many things, (and believe me I'm not easily offended), but don't EVAH call me a gal who doesn't know what kinda cocktail she knows and loves. I'm famous for my Debosa. That term was coined by my good friend Vanessa because of my affinity for a glass of champagne, topped off with a splash of mimosa, hence a "Debosa". Well, this weekend was Memorial Day weekend, the first weekend of SUMMAH. The weekend where everybody in this coastal town chillaxes by the pool, hits the beach, goes boating etc. And the weekend wouldn't be the same without my favorite cocktail.

Ya know, I'm NEVAH outta champagne, as I buy my bubbly by the case. However, I severely misjudged my supply of orange juice for the holiday weekend. Mind you, I only need a splash of OJ to take the edge off the champagne, but a splash of OJ goes a LOOOOOONG way into making my Debosa somethin' special.

Come Monday, I realized there was no OJ in the house. Horror of horrors fo' sho!!!! By the time I realized this unspeakable tragedy, Uncle Jeffy and I were in no condition to drive to the store to purchase any of that liquid vitamin C. So, as they say, "when the tough gets goin', the tough get creative". I used the only thing I had available in the fridge, which was diet green tea, to top off my champagne. Talk about the decay of the Debosa!!!! DAMN, I don't care how many antioxidants green tea might contain, it just can't compare to the sweetness of that yummy fruit. That green tea just made my famous Debosa fall into ruin.

Cheers to ya folks with this nasty shit until I can get me some fresh, delicious OJ with no pulp. That's what I'm talkin' about baby!!!!!

This post was written in response to my virgin attempt at Trifecta's Writing Challenge to the word "decay".

  1. Dag on Deb! You are supposed to drink the green tea after too many Debosa's not during. I am wondering if it tastes as bad as it sounds....

  3. Cute pic! Sorry sorry about the green tea. I'm usually out of everything but the liquor when I want a fruity cocktail. I'm all about the margaritas and daquris this summer.

  4. It's the diet part that would get to me! I do like green tea, but I think maybe matcha in a martini of some kind is a better way to go.

  6. I've never been a big fan of green tea. Something about the appearance (kind of pee colored) and the grassy flavor...

  8. You have quite the cleaver ability to write your thoughts accurately. Good on ya! I am not a drinker, hello, I'm from Utah... ya, non-drinking Mormon. But, man I do like to relax by a pool and sip an ice cold, lemonade with raspberries in it. lol

  14. Welcome to the challenge! I have to admire your tenacity. I think I'd probably have managed with the champagne on its own! This was fun and we hope you stay with us here for more challenges.
