This post is the third post in a series I am writing about my experience at the 2014 Type-A Conference on social media.
Of course one of the other things I did at the Type-A Conference this past weekend was spend just a little time in the bar. The Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead created some signature drinks just for the conference including one called the #Hashtag. It just called my name and I had to try it. Very tasty indeed! I do not have the exact recipe, but this should be pretty close so you can #hashtag at home.
#Hashtag Cocktail Recipe
- 1 ounce strawberry vodka
- 2 ounces lemonade
- 1 1/2 tbsp crushed fresh strawberries
Combine all ingredients in a shaker and mix well. Pour over ice. Enjoy!
Now about that fish in my glass…
We had been sitting at the bar for a while and I asked for another #hashtag. When the bartender set it down in front of me I exclaimed, “Hey! There is a fish in my drink!” Everyone thought I was crazy, or maybe drunk, but I wasn’t. You can clearly see in the picture that this little piece of fresh strawberry was floating and looked just like a little fish! The bartender was even shocked. It was just a total quirk, but so funny. Funny enough that then we decided we needed to take a pic of all of us making fish faces – okay so yes we had all had a few drinks at this point in the evening.
So the fish is totally optional for you all making #hashtags at home but they do add a lot of fun to the party!
