Lisa Thornbury: Party Mummy


Serve This Simple But Yummy Cocktail

The perfect drink for your next girls' night? The "Girls' Nightini!

I may be the current Party Mummy, but if something should happen to prevent me from upholding my blogging oath, I nominate my friend Shelley F. to take my place. She is a Party Mummy through and through. She cooks, she bakes, she mixes killer drinks and she can plan a fabulous event with her eyes closed and her Blackberry tied behind her back. Wait, now I’m feeling a little bit threatened and insecure.  Forget I said anything. She has thick ankles.

In spite of her ankle impediment, Shell makes deeee-lish-ous martinis whenever the girls come to play. She recently divulged the recipe (along with a few other hair curlers!).

It's so yummy and so simple, it's the Girls' Nightini!

Recipe: 1 oz. vodka, 1 oz. triple sec, 1 oz. pineapple juice/nectar, 2 oz. cranberry juice  Shake over ice. Garnish with a lime wheel and enjoy!

Recently as I rushed to get ready for a GNO, frantically hunting for something to wear, I spotted a dress I hadn’t worn in awhile. As I struggled to get it on, I became stuck. As I wrestled and flailed trying to get free, I inadvertently punched myself in the face. My thumbnail dug into the bridge of my nose which forced an enthusiastic f-bomb from my lips and blood from a gaping facial wound. Lesson? Plan your outfit in advance and avoid Houdini-esq outfits even if the colour does flatter your complexion. Hey, Houdini-Martini? I think that may be a new cocktail in the making...
