Bourbon; lemon juice; orange juice; grenadine
Whiskey Sour
Bourbon; lemon juice; simple syrup

Bay Breeze
Light Rum; cranberry juice; pineapple juice
Spiced Rum Coco Martini
Spiced Rum; Godiva Liqueur
Limoncello Daiquiri
Light Rum; Limoncello; lime juice; honey syrup

Gold Tequila; pineapple juice; lime juice
Mexican Madras
Gold Tequila; cranberry juice; orange juice; lime juice

Gin; Vodka; Lillet Blanc
Nick and Nora Martini

Apple Pie Martini
Tuaca; Vodka; apple cider

She got really bored during the lockdown, read cocktail books, and used me as subject for her cocktail experiments.

I had three martinis.  :)

The Spiced Apple had powdered cinnamon and a cinnamon stick.  It was my favorite that was a new drink.

Actually, the party was really low key.  We had heavy rain from the storm.  There were six of us.  All of us have been buddies for at least 15 years.  We all drank cocktails, ate some really delicious appetizers and chatted.   One of the people who came we have not had a chance to catch up with in six months.

All of our guests drink regularly - and over 3.5 hours having two to four cocktails with food is not that much drinking.

The rep (also a friend) was happy to answer any question - but otherwise no sales pitches were made at all.  Nobody ordered anything at the party itself.

My wife and I will probably buy $500 worth of stuff to outfit the new kitchen - but we had $250 we would have ordered without the party.  If you host one of these, you get substantial discounts.  We are going to pick up a great slow cooker that works as a crockpot, pressure cooker, and steamer in a very compact package.  We were planning to get one of these before 2021 anyway and we are getting a much better model for the same price you can pick one up at Amazon/Target.

Sounds like a great time. Spending the kids inheritance ahead of time is one thing I approve of.  O0

Nice. :)
