After yesterday it was so incredibly hot that we could not motivate ourselves to write a single line at Dandy Diary, it looks very different today again. And that includes our new favorite drink.
We have asked our friends and acquaintances, consisting of mostly bartenders and drinkers, what we should drink. One of the guys was then talking about the “Chivas Cooler”. We have, of course, understood nothing but didn’t bother and drank. And indeed a lot. Delicious stuff that is.
It is thus clear: our summer drink for 2012 is the “Chivas Cooler”, which is nicely mixed as follows (original recipe from bartending and seafaring legend Philip Mollenkott):
5cl Chivas (12 years old, important!)
20 cl ginger ale
1 oz fresh lime juice
Fill with ice
Please try out.
We have ordered dozens of bottles of Chivas to be delivered home now. We have finally earned this for the first and hopefully not the last drink-post on our blog.
Great! New suitcases by SAMSONITE. Thanks, yo!
Dandy of the Week: Daniel Sturridge
A Dandy sees red
After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?
Media as The Guardian, The Daily Beast and Buzzfeed presented ‘lumbersexual’ as the ‘next big thing’. Men with enormous beards and bellies in lumber-shirts, in work-boots, with wool-beanies on their heads and a freshly tapped beer in their hand.
But is that really the new trend? Men, who combine checked patterns with checked patterns, and who look like they have chucked some trees in the wood. No, not really. The look has been existing in the gay-scene for years (‘bears’ or ‘cubs’).
Plus we already know about the core-elements of the look (beard, lumber-shirt) from the hipster-scene. The picture (view the photo), which was used to express lumber-sexuality in a photo, has also been used to present the usual example of a hipster to their readers.
The hipster already was an anti-movement to the metro. The man became a man again. Sun-studios, picked eye-browes or shaved chests – all in all a no-go for the hipster. ‘Lumbersexuality’ is therefore no new anti-movement to metrosexuality, as it is celebrated in the media, but simply a continuation of the hipster-movement.
Therefore an old, fat hipster, who is drinking beer the whole day and who is just to distinguish by experts of ‘gay bears’. Therefore: no ‘next big thing’!
