The ‘Magic Mike Cocktail’ Is Served To You Via Sexy Lap Dance

For those familiar with the Magic Mike movie series, the only magic going on is how Channing Tatum makes his clothes disappear as a male stripper. Sure, Tatum’s abs and assets were what helped Magic Mike become a household name, but it seems that the success and influence has spilled on over to Huntington Beach, CA bar, Pacific Hideaway, too.

At Pacific Hideaway you can find the ‘Magic Mike Cocktail’, which is essentially a drink featuring coconut cream, vodka, orange and pineapple juice, and orange Red Bull. Yet the uniqueness of the cocktail isn’t what’s in it — though it’s a tasty reminder of an Orange Julius — so much as how it’s served to you.

With Ginuwine’s immortal slow jam, “Pony” blaring through bluetooth speakers, a barely dressed bartender serves the drink to you accompanied by a sexy lap dance. The result is a wild scene that will be perfect footage for your Instagram stories. Bodyrolls and booze, it’s the perfect combo to a fun night out, amiright?

This isn’t the first time Pacific Hideaway’s thought out the box when it comes to innovating cocktails, as we previously highlighted their Dazed & Confused cocktail that featured a faux joint to accompany the drink, which was then lit for an aromatic pairing.

This Tropical Cocktail Is Served With A Faux Joint To Keep Lit While You Sip

With the passage of Prop. 64 in November, there’s only a matter of time until pot-friendly businesses are able to set up shop in California. It’s already being theorized that this newfound canna-industry will include everything from wholesale dispensaries to brick and mortar weed-centric lounges, cafes, and restaurants.

Until then, pro-pot Californians are dreaming up creative ways to celebrate the coming era of legalization through not-so-subtle methods, that give us a glimpse into the future. Now, it seems a Huntington Beach, California restaurant and cantina is already trying to lead by example.

Pacific Hideaway, located inside the Shorebreak Hotel, is paying homage to the ganja gods by creating a tropical cocktail that is served with a smoking “joint” clipped to the side of the glass.

Named after the stoner cult classic film Dazed and Confused, this cocktail is made with Caña Brava Rum, plantation pineapple, ginger, and lime. But the piece de resistance of the drink is the oregano and sage doobie garnish, that when lit, gives a complimenting aroma to the cocktail.

While this faux joint isn’t going to get the party started, it’s a subtle reminder that legal cannabis is just in its infancy stage and there’s much more to come.

So, if you’ve never had the chance to channel your inner Matthew McConaughey and ask someone if they have a joint — just ask the bartender at Pacific Hideaway — it’d be a lot cooler if you did.
