Welcome to No. 4 of my 100 000 Hits party, where I invited 10 readers, to join me for an evening of fun, food and drinks that included 10 menu items which are being featured here in 10 posts! Be sure to check out No.1-3 as well, and return everyday to see another highlight of the party!
The drinks were so much fun, I chose three feature drinks for the evening, and also offered wine, water -still and sparkling, and pop. The first drink was a classic Shirley Temple. How much fun to be reminded of being kids and ordering these at Swiss Chalet 😉 and…they’re pink, so they were perfect.
- Pour Sprite or 7 up over ice, and add 2 tsp. of Grenadine.
- Garnish with a cherry!
So simple, so yummy.
I made some fun straws to celebrate the occasion.
I wanted to offer a non-alcoholic drink for my guests, but for those who wanted, we added a shot of Vodka for a more grown-up Shirley Temple, or a Dirty Shirley!
I also offered my guests one of my favourite cocktails, a Chocolate Martini. I’ve had a few versions, but this one is by far my fav., and so easy to make. We usually make them doubles 😉
- one shot Vodka
- one shot Creme de Cacao
Pour into a shaker with ice, shake until well chilled and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a chocolate kiss, or a cherry.
The final special drink was a Kir Royal, which we used for a toast!
- Pour 2 tbsp. Casis (black currant liqueur) into a champagne glass
- Top with sparkling wine, we used our fav. Martini Asti
They were so delicious!
Cheers to 100 000 Hits!
And to you, my readers, and all our creative endeavours together as we strive to make life a party!
