POURING IT ON

PacificSD asked Alex Cunningham to make us a drink. Instead, he made himself a drink, literally.
Now, this 31-year-old bartender from Ocean Beach’s new Raglan Public House has something to get off his chest, and it’s not just the sangria (the recipe for which can be found on page 88 and does not include chest hair).
PacificSD: Why should someone order a drink from you?
Because I really, really, really want to be friends with you.
What makes you special??
I don’t have a Facebook account and I help old ladies cross the street.
For whom would you most like to make a drink??
A nice-smelling girl with a good attitude would be awesome.
What embarrasses you??
My loud-ass car and going Number Two in a public bathroom.
Admit something that you never have before.
The first time I saw The Lion King, I cried when Mufasa died. That was sad, man.
If you were a drink, what would you be?
A shot of Fireball [fiery cinnamon whiskey], pretty darn tasty stuff.
What’s the craziest thing you’ll do this summer?
Maybe a little sex on the beach. Sorry Mom-ear muffs!
If you could do just three more things in life, what would they be?
Get all of my family to go on a trip somewhere tropical with good waves, trick Cindy Crawford into being my sugar momma and look at Earth from the moon.
Share a deep thought.?
Make sure you are happy with what you’re doing. Life is short and can end at any second. Smile as much as possible. Be nice to others. And last but not least, don’t lie to yourself; don’t lie to your friends.
