Silver Ballroom Bartender Justin Deming Mixes...A Slutbucket!

Welcome to Girl Walks into a Bar, a weekly Gut Check feature that spotlights local bars and bartenders. This is part one of Alissa Nelson's two-part profile of Silver Ballroom bartender Justin Deming. Part two, a Q&A with Deming, will be posted tomorrow.

Behold the Slutbucket!

The Slutbucket sits on the bar, glowing a bright green as if lit from within. It beckons all within the Silver Ballroom, to hear its mastermind, bartender Justin Deming, tell it.

"One person orders it, and everybody wants to try."

So goes the siren song of the Slutbucket, a masterful mix of Midori melon liqueur, Absolut Mandarin, pineapple juice and a splash of sour mix.

"It's like the Ecto-Cooler of drinks," Deming muses. We know what he means, thanks to a recent screening of Ghostbusters.

There is no Slutbucket, only Zuul.
