This market aisle gives me satisfaction and jazz-in-the-heart by which I mean…imagine that your heart got giddy and busted out the jazz hands. Jazz heart.
I really like lined up cans. Really. Thank you, Warhol…you own the soup can and I’ve got the beverages.
I decorate my bar with potential mixers and neat stacks of Wonder Drink. It’s potable décor. Tired of looking at it? Drink it up. Done.
I haven’t even tried Wonder Drink because I love this little stack of slim cans. Also…it might not taste so wonderful. It’s canned kombucha. All signs point to maybe not.
Is this an unwittingly weird Wednesday? One wonders. Let’s wander over to the fridge for refreshment where there is a selection of cold milky teas, coffees and a juice box container of black sesame drink.
I have some guidelines for purchasing coffee drinks:
- costs under or close to under one dollar
- goes well with a lounge chair, magazine, sunshine
- must have good label (odd and campy get immediate approval)
- mocha = yes
I guess I’m an elixir adventurer or something like that…a wash down warrior boldly collecting coffee concoctions, juices, sodas and such.
I’m intrigued by that Lemon Tea Drink with Basil Seed. But it could easily be like that time I tried a fresh Kombucha (which I dig) with chia seeds suspended in it (no dig).
Oddly, I don’t really drink sodas or sweet drinks often. I consider them to be a treat which is probably part of why I enjoy reveling in them. And I love bottles shapes and snappy labels. Soda bottles in a haphazard cluster with summertime flowers plunked in them are my kind of table décor. I like that casual, happy, something-from-nothing pretty.
There are little poems waiting to be found in the arrangement of simple everyday objects.
There’s a little more life for all these containers to hold. It’s recycling times two.
I toast you, Wash Down Wednesday, with various concoctions and a willingness to sample weird and wacky drinks.
Have I convinced you to take up this questionable hobby, this drinkable decor collecting?
I look out for interesting drinks regularly and find many in little delis. World Market has a great selection. There are plenty of places to search through in the Chelsea Market in NYC. And of course…again….in Washington you just really need to go to Uwajimaya.
Wanna rustle up a homemade libation? Here’s a link to my super strong ginger ale complete with really bad photos because this was one of my first posts. Sometimes I think about reshooting some of my early posts but I like them. They kinda suck which means I have proof that I’ve accomplished something.
I’m okay with where I’ve come from. I’d even put on my Devo-inspired diagonal zipper jumpsuit and do the robot for you if I still had it. And I totally wish I still had that jumpsuit.
Happy Wash Down Wednesday!
