In honor of the release of Sex & the City 2 this weekend, my mama & I decided to try out one of the cocktail recipes I saw recently in Us Weekly.
(created for Samantha)
*Combine 2 ounces Skyy Infusions Pineapple, 1 ounce fresh lime juice, 3/4 ounce triple sec, & 3/4 ounce creme de cacao in a shaker with ice. Shake & strain into a martini glass.
(Well, I sent my mama to the liquor store to buy the pineapple vodka, as that was the only ingredient we did not have stocked in our liquor cabinet. I didn't specify a brand, & she got Smirnoff, so that is what we used. I can't imagine it made much difference! It was yummy!)
(Although maybe the difference in brand explains the difference in color? I followed the measurements correctly... Or maybe I just didn't have a photo stylist to "pretty it up" for a photo! Whatever - it was delicious! My mama couldn't quite appreciate the chocolate flavors combining with the hints of pineapple, which is ironic, but I absolutely loved this cocktail!)
You can also go find cocktail recipes created for the other characters, including
(for Mr. Big);
Park Avenue Princess
& Red Over Heels
My mama & I are dying to try the Park Avenue Princess next!
(Oh, & I also recommend the film! I know it's getting awful reviews, but it is fun&funny! & it is full of great fashion! It's not like it's trying to be deep. ;))
