Come Party With Me: Season Premiere - Drinks

At my Ugly Betty season premiere party, I will dish out a Mexican inspired meal. Normally one would think to pair beer with Mexican food, but since this is a fashionably geeky party I will be serving wine. It's an unexpected and daring choice, however a crisp, acidic white Alboriño or a soft, juicy Beaujolais will complement the dinner. When choosing a wine to pour with Mexican food, stay away from oaky Chardonnays, and reds high in tannins like Merlots and Cab Sauvignons.

If you prefer to serve beer offer guests a selection of Mexican brews like Pacifico and Tecate. Sparkling and still water and lemonade are nice options for friends who don't drink.

No party menu is complete without a signature cocktail and mine will be served during dessert. It's a drink that was featured on an episode of Ugly Betty last season and will make a nice finish to the meal. To get the recipe to this cocktail, a concoction that tastes kind of like a thin mint girl scout cookie,

Dirty Girl Scout
From Drink Swap

1 oz vodka
1 oz coffee liqueur (like Kahlua)
1 oz irish cream (like Bailey's)
1 oz white creme de menthe

Mix the vodka, kahlua and bailey's and pour over ice. Pour the creme de menthe down the center of the glass.

Alternatively, I've also found recipes where you can put all ingredients into a shaker over ice and strain into a glass with or without ice cubes.

And, I've also seen it without vodka and served as a shot.
