A Week of Speciality Cocktails

aletnes | Dec 3, 2008 07:15 AM

So my friends and I are going away for a week for New Years, and I have come up with a fairly ambitious "traveling" menu -- each day is a different country/region. I have beer and wine to go with meals, but I wanted some fabulous cocktails for before/after (since we are all staying at the same house, that means no one has to drive home!) Ok, so here are my nights:

Day 1: Italian (white lasagna and fettucini pesto, with homemade pasta, pizza bianca, burrata and tomato salad)
Day 2: German (käsespatzle, bratwurst (fine ground german style, not johnsonville), and a green salad)
Day 3 Mexican (beef chimichangas, chicken enchiladas, cheese crisps, queso fundido, beans, rice)
Day 4: New Years Cocktail party -- a bunch of fingerfoods.. I think I will do two champagne cocktails for this -- ginger and pomegranate -- mmm or both together!
Day 5: Indian (Tandoori Chicken, Lamb in some sort of curry, some sort of veggie, fresh naan, rice)

I have most of the basics -- Rum, Gin, Tequila, Vodka and a good number of liqueurs. I can buy more if necessary. Its a girls weekend, and we all do fairly girly drinks, no one is very into bourbon, scotch, etc.
