Waiting to hear back from potential house sellers is not fun. But - you know what is fun? Thinking about the upcoming cocktail party we're hosting next month!
We're throwing a Stock the Bar shower for our good buddies Natalie and Greg and I'm really enjoying planning for it. We're ditching the usual beer & wine assortment and just serving cocktails....martinis, old fashioneds, gin & tonics, etc. I've been browsing the web looking for drink recipes and suggestions. Tommy White Tie certainly knows how to throw a swank soirée. That's The Spirit has been a good resource as well.
We're planning to offer an assortment of drink recipes that guests can choose from (or they can make their own). Many of Andrew and Greg's friends will just stick with their standard Jack & Cokes, blah blah but the girls are a more adventuresome bunch so the menu is a little slanted toward girlie drinks. So far on the list:
Gin & Tonics (my standard drink)
Of course, the Classic Martini
And...(this was my favorite thing to order at Red Lobster when I was a little kid) - Shirley Temples!
