Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

It’s National Boss Day – Cocktails Anyone?

Written by Patti on October 17th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Whether you have the “dictator”, the “micro-manager”, the “miracle” or the “friend” type of boss, you have definitely earned a day and a very large cocktail to reflect and celebrate National Boss Day on October 17th.

What better way to end a case of the Monday’s then with these exciting cocktails that you can totally relate to?

Feel like you’re ever in the movie, The Devil Wears Prada ? Kick back a few of these and the backhanded comments of the day seem to be forgotten.

Violet Femme
1 oz Lucid Absinthe
1 oz Raspberry Liqueur
1 oz Lemonade or sour mix
2 oz Ginger Ale
Fill a glass with ice and add Raspberry Liqueur, Lucid Absinthe and Lemonade. Cover with cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Top glass with ginger ale and blueberries.

Ever had the feeling that your boss is always looking over your shoulder? This will help you forget that micro-manager.

1 1/2 oz Flor de Caña 7 Year Rum
1/4 oz yellow Chartreuse
1/4 oz Navan liqueur
1 oz Fresh Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Agave syrup
5-6 grinds of course ground black pepper
Add ingredients to a mixing glass, fill with ice, shake thoroughly and FINE strain into cocktail glass with fresh ice. Garnish with fresh thyme is desired.

This one is dedicated to that one-of-kind boss that makes you not dread your daily routine!

The Sweet Standard

The Sweet Standard
1.7 oz Russian Standard Vodka
1 tsp honey
Fresh ginger for garnish
Shake Russian Standard Vodka and honey gently over ice. Serve on the rocks, garnished with a piece of ginger.

For the boss that can do it all and still look fabulous, this drink is just a smooth as they are.

Frangelico Supreme
1 ¼ oz Frangelico
1/14/ oz Flor de Cana Grand Reserve rum
1 ¼ oz sweet vermouth
Shake with ice, pour over ice into rocks glass. Garnish with a lime.

That should do, yes?
