Blonde Ambition

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.

Blonde Ambition

(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

Glamour Gal
(for Samantha);
Mr. Manhattan
(for Mr. Big);
Park Avenue Princess
(for Charlotte);
& Red Over Heels
(for Miranda).

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. ;))

One last thing...

If you love Lilly Pulitzer as much as I do, you will want to enter this fabulous, generous Murfee scarf giveaway at Pink Preppy Lilly Lover. I know I've mentioned her before, but this blogger is absolutely one of my favorites - both for her blog, & for her genuine, sweet character!

  1. Hmmm. I don't think I've had even a sip of alcohol since I've left college, so maybe it's time for me to get classy and make a martini. Looks good! :)

    And, I'm so jealous that you've found time to see SATC2! I keep trying to get to the theatre, but work has been keeping me busy. I am dying to see what they're wearing!

  2. Ohh how yummy!!! I think that drink looks so tasty!

  3. I'm loving the toile table covering-gorgie
