This Tipsy has a surprisingly subdued colored coat; a dark, nearly black, green. It has gold flecked throughout its coat, and the top of its tail is lined with a concentration of gold flecks that gleam in the sun and moonlight. Its tail is a much brighter green than the rest of its body, almost glowing when even the least little bit of light hits it. It's actually patterned very much like a firefly, with the underside of the tail giving off the appearance of ribbing. How I came up with this
Even though I don't like the taste of anise, I've always been fascinated with the idea of Absinthe, also known as "The Green Fairy". I wanted to incorporate it into this drink, especially because of a Tipsy's ability to fly. Then, I thought to myself, "what would taste good with anise"? I had to do a little research, and I found that anise and cinnamon pair well. And then it hit me...Goldschlager! Yummy, sweet, cinnamon Goldschlager. It's clear, so it won't dilute the color too much, not to mention it has flakes of 24K gold floating around in it, which would compliment the green absinthe beautifully. So now I had anise and cinnamon flavors. I just needed something to tie them together. But that's the tricky part, because if I add anything of color, it would more than likely make a nasty brown or some other unappetizing color. Goldschlager and apple juice always tastes good to me, but again, there was color issue. So I looked towards more alcohol for an answer, when I came across Green Apple Pucker. Perfect! The tartness of the Pucker would be perfectly balanced by the sweeter Goldschlager and Absinthe. Not only that, but the drink would just about glow from the bright green of the Pucker and Absinthe.
I also just wanted to say thank you, Kono, for the chance to win a custom!
It's incredibly nice of you, and I wish you the best of luck in determining the winner of the contest.
