Let's face facts: Gatherings where the only drinks are big, cheap and diluted with Coke really suck. But fiestas laced with ritzy martinis and elaborate shots ... well, we all know the hosts of those live on in eternity.
What's that? Don't know any good drink recipes, but want to be a remembered for throwing a wicked shindig? Fear not the Independent's got you covered. You'll be a fizzy-deity before your guests can say "highball."
The Indy recently called a handful of local bars, requesting recipes for their popular signature drinks. We spoke to the men and women behind the ashtrays, shakers and jiggers (or the people who order those people around). Graciously, many handed over their boozy blueprints for your in-home enjoyment. We recommend stopping in to their respective bars to pay homage and to try a teaser of your soon-to-be party-livening elixir.
