HEY TOM COLLINS, HAIL THAT SIDECAR FOR ME AND WATCH OUT FOR THE GRASSHOPPER IN THE CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL!
To celebrate a milestone birthday, I had a party with a martini theme. By the end of the evening, there were many happy, giggly faces and the remnants of some pretty interesting cocktail mixes. What the Rat Pack made cool many decades ago has re-emerged in a big way. Those sexy girls in the City knew how to live it up the Cosmo way.
In our ever-changing disposable world, it’s nice to see the art of the cocktail has somehow made a comeback. We’re no longer satisfied with just the pop of a cork or the fizzy twist of a cap to tantalize the palette.
“That’s Amore” (abridged version)
When the mood hits your brain like a runaway train,That’s a cocktail,When the world seems to shineLike you’ve had too much wine, that’s a cocktail,
Ears will ring, ting-a-ling-a-lingTing-a-ling-a-ling, you’ll cry, “no more vodka”Head will pound, tippy-tippy-tay,Tippy-tippy-tay, like a polka
When you stagger in a dream,But you know you’re not dreaming no sireee,Scuzza me, but you’ll see,Back in bed there for me,No more cocktails….
