Mad Men Yourself!

Since I have found myself caught up in the Mad Men experience I am very excited to have found this nifty little site:

Mad Men appeals to the 1950's housewife in me so you can just imagined how thrilled I was to be able to create my very own Mad Men caricature! I hope you have lots of fun choosing your own features and designing your own Mad Men self!

I like to think that's Cary Grant clinking glasses with me! *swoon*

In honour of the occassion I thought I would offer up my favourite cocktail recipe!

Cosmopolitain Martini
1/2 oz Cointreau orange liqueur
1 oz vodka
juice of 1/2 lime
1 splash cranberry juice
Pour all ingredients in mixing glass half filled with ice, shake and strain into chilled martini glass.
I think Cosmos are the perfect balance of tart and sweet! Bonus: They are perfectly pink!

I just love to accessorize my parties and I found these adorable party picks! They would be perfect for olives, pearl onions, lemon or lime slices and bring a festive touch to your cocktails!

They are available on Etsy from Orange1.

Have a fabulous day!

Hmmm, I"ll have to try this. I can't hold my liquor very well at all, so I might have to fix one for Mr. T and just take a sip. I'm not a fun 'drunk'. As a matter of fact, Idon't even have time to get drunk, I fall fast asleep.
