HI, I'M MATT. WORKING BEHIND THE BAR AT MAJOR LEAGUE 2 TAPHOUSE AND SPORTS PUB IS A PRETTY SWEET GIG. I OVERHEAR A LOT OF CHATTER WHILE I'M POURING BEVY'S. HERE'S A STORY ABOUT A DRINK THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
It was a busy Friday night. That's typical. I was pouring from every single one of our 23 available taps. A group of young dudes strolled up to the front of the line.
One of them seemed stumped and turned to another who was standing a little further back in line. He called out over DJ Sam spinning tunes, "What should I get? I have no idea what is good!" My voice was already thrashed from a good Thursday Night Football game, so I couldn't yell back what I thought was good.
But his buddy had an idea. He was sure this was going to change his friends life. He piped up, loud and confident, and called back with one of the most popular drinks we offer,
"Vodka Cran! You won't regret it!"
I didn't think I heard him right, but sure enough, the stumped dude called back to make sure he heard it right, "Vodka Cranberry?" His friends smiled and nodded at him, holding up one of his own.
"It'll change your life, bro! It'll change your life!"
