Maki Horikita drinks up at Suntory Cocktail Awards

13 Comments

Actress Maki Horikita, 21, was invited to be a special guest judge at the “2009 Suntory The Cocktail Awards” held at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo Hotel in Roppongi this week. Twenty-four cocktails were chosen for the final round of judging.

“I’ve never drunk this much before. I’m not a big drinker so I just sipped a little of each one,” Horikita said shyly, her cheeks glowing a pinkish hue.

Horikita turned 21 on Tuesday, and said she celebrated it with her family, but added: “I’ve never been to a bar, and I’d like a cool guy to take me to one.”

Horikita belongs to the same agency as actress Meisa Kuroki, also 21, and she was asked about the rumors of Kuroki’s relationship with kabuki actor Shido Nakamura, 37. “I saw the news on TV. I’ll do my best not to be beaten,” she declared cryptically

She's not only holding one, but it looks like she's had a few.

Hmmm - great idea. Invite somebody who claims to have never been to a bar to judge a cocktail competition.

Oh, wait! Her cocktail is pink! That makes something cute, and therefore valid.

Don't worry about the judge having any ability of judging, it's more about the "talento" press release in Japan

How could it be that this girl has never been to a bar before? What hellhole has she been in the last 5 years?

"Im not as think as you drunk I am" That is quite an attractive dress~ I would share a drink with her, but I usually fall asleep after just one.

@IvanCoughalot and @DenDon I would take it a step further.She`s never been to a bar, is judging a cocktail contest and is happy to admit that.Surely only in Japan! I guess she chose the Pink Suntory one as the winner
