Foo-Foo Drink: An alcoholic beverage that is way too pretty or feminine. These drinks are usually characterized by lots of whipped cream, multiple fruit decorations and/or umbrellas. Also, they tend to be low in alcohol content.
Examples Of Use:
Hubby and I went to the liquor store last night to purchase some samplings for our upcoming beach/cottage weekend; much to the amusement of the staff. This is the convo we had at the cash register.
Hubby: what in God’s name are those?
Me: Blue Curacao and raspberry Sour Puss…why?
*handing bottles to the guy at cash*
Hubby: what concoction are you going to make with those?
Me: holy water.
*guy at cash near spits out his water*
Hubby: holy water????
Me: remember the foo foo drink I had at the restaurant last week? The blue and red thing that you scoffed at till you tasted it?
Me: it’s called holy water. It’s a shot of Blue Curacao, raspberry Sour Puss and sprite. I’m going to add some fresh orange pieces and real raspberries and maybe some of those little umbrellas to really dress it up. I mean…wouldn’t that make a great beach foo foo drink for this weekend? A taste sensation.
Hubby: couldn’t just be easy and take beer, eh????
Me: I wanted something tasty…and pretty….
*hubby looks to cash guy who nods his head in total guy understanding*
Me (to both of them): whatever…just ring in my bottles!
