The lovely bride has a birthday on Sunday. We have about 5-6 other couples coming over on Saturday night. We are going to sip on a few cocktails and then hit a local sushi joint. I would like to pick 2 simple cocktails to serve everyone while they are here. It will only be about an hour and 15 minutes of drinking. I need one simple/strong/easy chick drink and one simple/strong/easy rock star drink! Any suggestions?

Tell Inga we said Happy Bday!

Thanks,
Inga will not be there. I try not to have her at any party that my wife will be attending. I was thinking of traditional martinis for the boys and some variation of cosmos for the chickys.

Who are you, Henry Hill? If I recall, Friday at the Copa was for the girlfriends. ;)

I'm not really a martini guy, but go for it.

My wife likes the Amaretto Sours sometimes.

sooo, tell us what the SRV drink was? am already supposed to know this one? I saw this on VH1 behind the music-
SRV's breakfast every morning was a glass of Jack & coke, only the coke wasnt from a can :eek: :noface: He drank that every morning to "get going". Over time, it literally tore his stomach apart, where he was coughing up red. He was walking down the street one day with the band, and he started coughing, and couldnt stop. he went to the hospital, he was near death. Thats when he knew he had to either get clean or he was gonna die. and he got clean, and stayed that way. It was so sad to see that man TRULY turn his life around, get his career back on track, and then get killed in a helicopter crash. I mean, he went to hell and back, defeated the tallest odds, only to crash in a helicopter...... :(

Looks like Cosmos for the ladies and Gin/Vodka martinis for the dudes.
Beer/wine for everyone else.
Basil leaves stuffed with Chevre and pine nuts.
Assorted cheese and crackers.

The party was a success. The Basil recipe rocked. It is very easy and I posted it on the food talk with Tex thread. Martinis/Grey Goose shots/sake caught up several of us by the night's end. I got the dry heaves and several people saw sushi come back the other way. I did get a foot and jump set in today. Not bad to squeeze both in on HER birthday!
