I thought about creating a synopsis for this and even telling you what the story will be about before you start reading but I think I’ll maintain a bit of mystery with this 😏. Plus, I think the title gives some hint anyway. This story is a step outside of my usual and is probably only the beginning.
If this is the first story you’re reading that was written by me, know that this story WILL get explicit. There will be light bdsm elements (edited to say: by part 5), very mild, that will still be offensive to prudes 🤷🏾♀️ lol. Either way, enjoy and let me know what you think!
T H E T A S T E… bubbly orange juice with a kick. This is the drink you have when you want to get a little nice before an appropriate drinking hour. But don’t get it twisted, you can get drunk off this shit, even with that OJ present. You see, they add the orange juice as a way to make it seem like a breakfast drink. But the avid Mimosa drinker knows what’s up. This drink is like class in a glass with a side of sass. Responsibility mixed with excitement. It’s the undercover delight on the drink menu that’s a bit toned down… but not toned down enough to be dry or boring. It’s liquid balance with equal parts alcohol and juice. But let’s not forget, there’s champagne in that glass and we all know that champagne is all about a good time despite being coupled up with citrus.

The caress of his hand moving along my outer thigh made my eyes peel open. It was barely morning. The sun not yet risen. Hints of mimosa remained on my tongue hours after I enjoyed two glasses of it at an untraditional hour last night. We chose to stay in and skip the holiday party the night before. Our little date night at home that almost ended in us making another baby.
T H E T A S T E… a Screwdriver is not a “vanilla” drink although if you’ve tasted it enough times, you can spot hints of the flavor married in the taste. Because of the mix of orange juice and vodka, Screwdrivers are smooth going down and has a tinge of spice in the aftertaste. When you take your first sip, chances are you’ll screw your face up at the taste. You can’t help it. The vodka is potent and although it is hidden a bit by the orange juice, it does little to keep you from having this reaction. This drink is not like it’s more acceptable drink sister, Mimosa. Though it’s fruity, it isn’t bubbly. Nor does it care to be. It’s got bite. Liquid sass. A Screwdriver is a simple drink, an easy sip. All it takes is you having it once (a good mix at least) for you to want it all the time.

I pressed my mouth against his and tasted the vodka on his lips. The stubble of his beard tickled my chin and sent a charge between my thighs.
T H E T A S T E… when sugar meets spice. Both drinks on their own are satisfying. One quenches thirsts while the other facilitates illicit behavior. One is exotic while the other is a classic. You’ll either like the taste of a Rum & Coke or you’ll hate it, there really is no in between. It’s smooth and an easy order which is probably why it’s a popular choice at the bar. You know what you’re going to get when you request this mix. Comfort in a glass with just the right amount of heat and sweet needed to get you drunk with sense.

The cab had barely braked when Jaxson pulled open the door and I nudged him inside the car. The asphalt below my feet if I didn’t know any better slanted downward, uneven, as I stumbled into my seat. Mumbled words from the cabbie’s lips found its way through the Plexiglas separating the backseat from the front. A hazy night at least from my view, with the blur of Christmas lights glowing through the frosted back windows.
T H E T A S T E… sweet but still bold. Cherry Wine is considered to be rare and hard to find since it’s difficult to locate a bottle where many wines are sold. This type of wine can be made dry, semi-dry, or sweet… but often it’s on the sweet side. It’s said to be for amateurs who aren’t quite accustomed to grape wines. Although this drink is fruit flavored, it still has its kick. Let’s remember that even though it is sweet, the alcohol is still very there. Sometimes the makers of this wine add extra alcohol to the mix. It just needs to be savored a bit longer for it’s true volume to be detected and that boldness to emerge.

Was that it?
I waited this long for that?
T H E T A S T E… like a dream in a glass. It’s not quite a cocktail and not quite wine. It’s a lovely combination of both… much like a fantasy is to the actual act. A comfortable middle that’s a favorite amongst a certain gender. Consisting of fruit, Sangrias are a sweet take on vino. It takes someone creative to mix together a pitcher of Sangria that’ll make those who drink it crave seconds.

His lips were what hooked me. Full, brown with a tint of pink. He wore his expressions on his lips and liked to bite at them in thought. I wondered how they would feel pressed against the curve of my neck. If they were as soft as I assumed. Warm as I anticipated. Curiosity kept my thoughts preoccupied debating if he used that mouth to speak inspiration or to spew black magic.
I hoped the former.
