I'll Have What She's Having

2 more days!!! *for our theater at least!*

I'm so giddy and it's SO worth it! My friend Merrie and I are co-hosting a little gathering of some friends and Sex fans Friday night before clicking our Manolos (read: Target-brand heels) over to the theater.

To begin our party, we'll serve cocktails like those of the Cosmo-liking, plus a few new recipes I found at THIS site.

Carrie’s “I Love NY” Cocktail
1 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. triple sec
1/2 oz. Alize’ Gold Passion Fruit liqueur
1 oz. red cranberry juice
splash of fresh lime juice
lime twist for garnish
Add ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with a lime twist.

Carrie’s Wedding White Cosmo
1 1/2 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. triple sec
1 oz. white cranberry juice
splash of fresh lime juice

    How exciting!! I can't wait to see it!!
    Sounds like you have a fun little party planned.
    Hey just saw this drink recipe on People.com. Apparently it's the drink the girls were drinking at the after party last night - appropriately dubbed...

    "The Bradshaw"

    2 oz. Don Julio Blanco Tequila
    1/2 oz. X Rated Passion Fruit Liquor
    3/4 oz. Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
    3/4 oz. Cane Sugar Simple Syrup

    Shaken, serve straight up in a martini glass rimmed in hot pink sugar, garnished with a lime wedge.

    yeah, I'll have one of each!

  3. Tami said...

    Where do you live exactly?? I would like to stop by - lol!

    None. I mean zero of my friends have my Sex and the City love and it bums me out. I will be going by myself to see it or dragging my husband kicking and screaming!!

    I'm *so* ducking for cover as I type this. Are you ready for it? Brace yourself:

    I've never seen a single episode of Sex and The City.

    Those cocktails are right up my alley though. Especially the Wedding white cosmo.

  5. Merrie said...

    I'm suddenly very thirsty...

  6. The Mom Jen said...

    Not one episode? Darcie, pour yourself a cosmo and rent a few seasons (gets good around season 3 and 4). I'll be patient while you catch up! ;)

  7. Alice said...

    I loved the series, but seriously, I still can't believe some of the utter CRAP that Carrie wore. Sorry, that had to come out. Now I'll go make me one of those drinks.

  8. SherE1 said...

    OMG - I will have to steal your recipes and have me a little to-do before the girls and I hit up the movie theater, too! It's been so long since I've been out on a "girl's night" that I'm practically climbing the walls!

  9. ** said...

    Since Darcie outted herself, I will out myself as well. I've never watched it but ladies I have envy! I have Sex in the City or AND the City? Whatever.... bonding envy I tell you!

    I want a stinger and I want a stinger now! (Think Pink Pony!)

    I wish I could be there! I refuse to go see it by myself ... that would just be too sad. But, maybe I'll make myself a drink (or two!) on Friday night after our last baseball game.

  11. Rebecca said...

    Never really watched SITC ::ducking the flying tomatoes:: since we didn't have HBO, but I like the sound of the Charlotte Chocolatini!!

    Enjoy the premiere of the movie Jen! :)

  12. Jenny said...

    Erik and I watched every season. LOVED IT. My friend is catching up now so we can go, although it won't be right on opening weekend.

  13. McMommy said...

    I just LOVE all the SATC buzz in the air this week!! All my favorite blogs are buzzing about it!

    Clicking my Manolos together anxiously as I type. ;)

  15. Not Just Any Jen said...

    Too much fun! Wish I could join up, but I am way over here in Chicago. Cute ideas!

  16. BookMamma said...

    For Friday night! These cocktails will come in awfully handy... HELLO LOVER!

  17. Ann Harrison said...

    Oh good Lord!!! I need another long weekend right now!
    I must catch up on my 'recipes'!

  18. Sue Wilkey said...

    Darcie, Becky - I'm with you - I've never seen an episode. (cringe). BUT that doesn't mean I won't be sneaking cosmos into the theater with my SATC-obsessed friend.

  19. Simple Answer said...

    My bestest, most bestest friend in the world would tape Sex in the City for me weekly. (we don't do cable. is that a true friend or what?) Now we're heading to the movie Saturday night. I can not wait!

    I am so ready-I scored viewing passes for this past Tuesday night. I couldn't make it and it turns out they turned many, many away. I am there at the first viewing on Friday!!!

  21. flickrlovr said...

    Going tonight! WAY excited. Maybe a little too excited. My girlfriend and I are dressing up, getting purdy, and going to stand in line at 10 (for the 12:01 show).
    Note to self: remember the blanket and Starbucks for that waiting line.

    Have fun!

    Wish I could try one of those drinks, but alas, I'm underage ;)
    1 more year baby!
