Come Party With Me: My Birthday Party - Drinks

My 26th birthday party is being held at a local bar named Wish, so a specialty cocktail isn't as necessary. Guests — who will come dressed as their favorite cocktail — can order drinks at the bar and the need to make a specialty drink in advance is eliminated. When hosting an event at a bar or restaurant you can usually rent out part, all or none of the bar. As much as I would love to have an open bar, my pocketbook won't allow me to. However I do want everyone to have the opportunity to toast fabulous moi during the birthday cake ceremony. Therefore, I've discussed it with the owners and everyone will receive a champagne cocktail at midnight. When the party is over they'll let me know how many bottles of champagne were consumed and I will pay that cost. To see the recipe I'm using for a classic champagne cocktail,


Classic Champagne Cocktail
From Drinks Mixer

3 oz. champagne
1/3 oz. cognac
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 tsp. sugar

  1. Soak one sugar cube in a champagne flute with angostura bitters.
  2. Add champagne and cognac. Squeeze in a twist of lemon and discard. Garnish with half a slice of orange and a cherry, if desired.

Serves 1.
