Drink, Smoke and be Lolita

There is the pervasive myth on what the Western lolita “should” be – as in a code of behavior – which is prim, proper and passive. That Lolitas shouldn’t drink, smoke, swear or be jerks. I personally think that’s a load of bullshit because at the end of the day people in the lolita subculture are human. It’s a good thing usually to keep the profanities down to a minimum, keep your liver in tact so someone else could one day use it/eat it to gain your power and keep the tobacco smoke out of your expensive garments but fucked if I could be bothered really.

On Drinking
Chambord Liquer is pretty much the most lolita of all boozes, it’s even got a crown on it! Chambord is made from raspberries, blackberries, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and cognac and tastes great in cocktails. My personal favorite being lime juice, Chambord and lemonade and if you’re feeling extra blasphemous try the Blood of Christ cocktail, Chambord, Triple Sec, Grand Mariner and grenadine.

Chambord

The Loliest of all Boozes

For the beer drinkers, branch out and try some local or international brews, for the homebrewers out there I put to you a challenge – create Lolibrau – a beer for lolitas, by lolitas and now with even MOAR BOWS.

On Smoking
The latest trend right now is eCigarettes – battery powered cigarettes that vaporize nicotine into vapour with no tar or smoke – you can smoke those bad boys anywhere and come in a variety of flavours. For the tradiontional smoker who wants to colour co-ordinate I’d recommend Fantasias, Sobranie Coctails and Black Russians.

Sobraine is one of the oldest cigarette companies in the world and also make a rainbow coloured ciagrette known as Sobraine Coctails as well as the distinctive Black Russians which have a black paper covering.

Sorbaine Cocktails - and you thought AP was way pastel

I like the occasional Clove for the taste, Black Devils too when Sobranies are not in the budget but for the most part I stick to Marlboro Reds and Benson and Hedges Classic.

We all have vices, at the very least you can get your vices to match your hand bag and never apologize for having flair or taste ladies.

  1. Totally 100% agree on Chambord. It’s even enough to buy it just to have a freakin’ cute crown-topped orb hanging around my house.

    I used to smoke Sweet Dreams – a whole pack of pink cigs with gold filters! They were my absolute favorite, though they’ve now been discontinued! ;_; Yesterday I found Nat Shermans Fantasias, and was happy that at least I got 4 pink cigarettes out of the pack. Thanks for the pic of the Sorbaine Cocktails, though… now I just need to track some of those down!

    Also, thank you for being one of the few Lolitas who recognize that some of us do, indeed, smoke!

    And aw man, I need to get myself a bottle of that Chambord… It sounds delicious, and I do like to loli-fy my vices when possible…
