LUPEC 2: Liquid Romance

14 Mar

LUPEC Name: Gin and Sin

Meeting Date: 2/27/2011

Meeting Theme: Liquid Romance

Why did you choose this theme?
Upon requesting Feb., I immediately turned to love, roses, kisses, cupids, and valentines.  Browsing through my cocktail books I kept stumbling across cocktails named after movie love stories.

What were the cocktails you served?
Titanic – Quite a striking drink!  Blue lights in the bottom, blue jewels (“the heart of the ocean”), and Titanic and iceberg ice cubes were used.

Moulin Rouge – Loved the inclusion of macadamia nut liqueur and honey vodka together.

From Here to Eternity (Vanilla Passion) –  I infused my own vanilla vodka.

Lolita – Whoa! (Joey Lawrence style)

Blue Lagoon – The girls loved the blue colored jello I used to rim the glasses!

Romeo and Juliet – even Pomeranian liked it, and she doesn’t like rum!

What food was served/brought?
Quesadillas with Krab with a K
Pita and Hummus
Cheesy chicken balls
Girl Scout cookies
Croissants with tasty spreads
Carmelitas
Eclairs, red velvet cupcakes, chocolate pops

Anything else you’d like to say about your meeting?
It’s nice to host, you can drink all you want!

Recipe, please!

Romeo and Juliet
1 oz. light rum
1 oz. dark rum
1 oz. chocolate rum (I used chocolate syrup, the kind you put in coffee, not Hershey’s)
3 oz. cola
Lemon peel garnish
