In Baltimore (or as they say it down here, Bawlmer, hon!) there are 3 men who are revered more than any others: Cal Ripken, Jr., Johnny Unitas, and John Waters. Out of those 3 I think you can discern which one is my favorite.
So, in honor of the 69th birthday of John Waters, Baltimore’s favorite director, I bring you the most Baltimore of all drinks, the Bawlmertini!
- Old Bay
- National Bohemian
- Pikesville Rye
Pour Pikesville Rye into shot glass. Rim big glass with Old Bay. Pour Natty Boh into Old Bay glass. Drink.
OK, you’re gonna think I’m crazy, but I do really dig Natty Boh with the Old Bay! It’s delicious.
Hm. Maybe I’ve been in Baltimore too long.
You like my Pink Flamingos coaster? And, yes, that is a Chi-Chi’s margarita glass. In this case it is a Cha-Cha Heels Margarita Glass.
And if you don’t get that reference, then you need to see Female Trouble, like yesterday.
Is it wrong that I soooooo want Divine’s pajamas? I also would totally sport that hair.
I miss those glasses. And how thin I was three years ago.
Happy birthday, Mr. Waters! If I were out tonight maybe I’d see you at Club Charles. It’s happened before!
