Tiger’s Nest

Decant vial and test strip cut-out of Memo’s tricolor woodblock label with a broody tiger.

This is one of those fancy organic sodas from the health food store with the artsy label–that’s totally worth the ridiculous price.

Uncaps to smoky root beer, then settles into Sprite and an aldehydic seltzer. Lasts a good two hours a foot off the wrist and leaves a pleasant malty sweet amber on the skin the whole afternoon.

Perfect for a sushi lunch date.

I played second flute for an excruciating season of junior high band–The Eye of the Tiger was our big number. I like Katrine Ottosen’s cover. (Her Tiny Desk Concert is over here.)
