YEP!!! It’s Cilla’s birthday and the celebration doesn’t stop! Anyone up for a caipirinha???

Besides being the exact day Cilla was born, today is also Friendship Day! Please take a moment to call, hug, visit or think of your best friend. We are thinking of our favorite amigo here.

…It’s time to come together
It’s up to you, what’s your pleasure
Everyone around the world
Come on!…”

Let’s go back a minute and do a recap on all of Cilla’s characteristics (that we have pointed out in all our Happy Hour’s posts about her during the week) so far:

Brazilian, American, Fashionable, Creative, Diva, Persistent, Talented, Good hearted, Good Humored, Happy

If we had to define all of that in one drink, what would it be?

We asked our Open Bar Mixer Guru for some help:

…and after only 2.7 seconds it gave us the answer. ARE. YOU. READY?

…Celebrate good times, come on!
It’s a celebration
Celebrate good times, come on!
Let’s celebrate…”

Cilla Makes is a…MANHATTAN ICE CREAM FLOAT!!!

Yes, our SIS is so sweet that only cherry and vanilla ice cream with bourbon would do her justice! This is a very feminine, delicious and creative cocktail. Perfect for good times, sunshine, friends and love. Even its colors are fashionable. Who doesn’t like pink?

There is one very special and irreverent ingredient inside the Manhattan Ice Cream Float, the Angostura bitters. For those who don’t know, it was created in Venezuela in a town with the same name.

Its flavor is a mixture of concentrated bitters (botanical matter with a bitter, sour or bittersweet flavor), water, 44.7% ethanol, gentian, herbs and spices.

As you see, it’s a kind of drink able to please various tastes, specially beautiful and international women as our dear SIS Cilla.

It’s recipe was developed as a tonic by a German, Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert (1796–1870), a general surgeon in Simón Bolívar‘s army in Venezuela. At first it was used as medicine, but as Bon Jovi once said: “bad medicine is all what I need!!!

Angostura bitters was so good (and bad) that it became the key ingredient in many cocktails nowadays like Old Fashioned, Champagne Cocktail and Pisco Sour.

If you like to prepare cocktails and feel like taking a challenge, we have the perfect one for you!

But before we go, we have a few words to say to her.
