The only thing that will upload are these cocktails photos in 8-bit resolution 🙄

But I've received some interesting user feedback in the last hour: apparently Mercury IS in retrograde.

@bitterandtwisted_az's new menu after the jump.

After some self-reflection, I've gotta confess that I HAVE been using loads on cheat codes on my recently. I think I have a virus

If for no other reason than I need to listen to #lemonade and #viewsfromthe6 on the go, @applemusic can you please fix my phone?

For now, here's the Quit Your Wining cocktail from the new @bitterandtwisted_az menu. Pineapple juice, red wine, vanilla, raspberries... #8Bitters #bartendersbible

This is one of love to be clearer. @bitterandtwisted_az holding up the new, third edition of his cocktail menu. 8-Bit inspired and everything. Ah well... Info is after the jump.

Man, Is anyone else's Wi-Fi THIS bad?? @CoxCommunications is losing my business first thing Monday. Gonna have to put up with it for now because... I have to let you know about the new @bitterandtwisted_az menu. Info after the jump!

Here's the Cocaine cowboy in all of its pixelated glory -- sarsaparilla, rum, vodka, vanilla cream float.

shelbinator3000 [link in bio] (Guys, bear with me, my internet speeds are at an all time low... Resorting to uploading in 8-bit for now -- will try to fix!!) Hey world, exciting cocktail news! @bitterandtwisted_az has a new menu launching this Tuesday -- I've got all of the details after the jump.

This drink is none other than the Porn Star Martini, served with a shot of bubbles on the side. You're going to want to see this one in less "graphic" detail.

  •   steph_haworth The 8-bit styling matches the name of this drink I kind of like this crazy style. I thought it was an awesome marketing strategy, like, "you have to come see these drinks for themselves." 6h

The stuff upstairs at @stockandstable -- the stuff at Honor Amongst Thieves -- may be a bit more this speed: think fun boulevardiers; think playful martinis (playful as in interesting gins and vermouths, not apple); think athletic club, smoking lounge and Donald Draper.

The reason behind all the @jagermeisterusa in the Thai Tea is that Stephanie Teslar (previously of Kimpton Hotels/Blue Hound) is opening up two bars at The highly anticipated Uptown Phoenix restaurant, @stockandstable. Honor Amongst Thieves will be upstairs -- so neighbors at @okra_az invited them in to show off their stuff.

Fond of putting some Jägermeister in your Thai tea?
Well Stephanie Teslar loves Jägermeister in her Thai tea.
Now I do, too.
Goodbye boba balls and innocence. Hello Jäger.

Joshua James calls the Sour Times a "garden-style" cocktail.
But are we sure it isn't a cocktail-style garden?
As aromatic as cocktails get (that aren't on fire, at least), this one resembles a piscina sour that's been "dragged through the garden" by way of the blackberry patch.

shelbinator3000 So, what's it like to be the prettiest cocktail in the room?

You could ask the Sour Times, a new cocktail on @cleverkoi's summer menu, but that'd be silly -- you should just drink it instead.

Fresh blackberry, lemon and lime juices, lavender-infused wildflower honey, @HaymansGin Old Tom Gin and an egg white to tie it all together.

A far cry from the sprig of herb most cocktails receive as garnish; Joshua James measures this bundle -- Thai basil, rosemary, sage and mint -- by the fistful.

shelbinator3000 So, pressing question: have you been 'L.I.T. Up' yet? Because Big Ben is ticking.
Tomorrow @bitterandtwisted_az will let us media folk in on all of the details for their new menu.
Here's what I know so far: it's big, it's boozy, it's 8-bit, and it only happens once per year. Some cocktails will stay, but most may go.

I'll let you know when the story is live.

Oops -- okay. I'm not going to apologize. But did I mention @counterintuitiveaz is going to have some really good chicken mole tacos?
