THE STORY BEHIND THE COCKTAIL NAME

The shapes of bamboo tell what road I shall take
I followed it for a time, not knowing where it will lead
To a place where I did not expect to go.
It is unclear whether or not I will find new possibilities there
Still I cannot avoid being drawn to this unknown realm
The bamboo bounces off something trying to suppress it
Enjoying a moment of change like fireworks shooting into the sky
Being reborn into my hands.
