In lieu of our May meet, we did the Y-ME Walk to Empower. We had a team 8 members strong, and we raised over $1000. Go, us!

In addition, it was just a good time, and we got to work on our fitness some. Can’t wait until next year!

That’s right folks, we’re having a Saturday meeting this month. So you can have a little more tipple, without worrying about workday effects.

Not only that, it’ll be our first home-hosted meet! Our very own Widow’s Kiss (love the new name!) AKA Karen, is welcoming us into her home for a chat, and some lovely bevvies.

We’ll also be working on some stuff for next month’s Y-ME walk. Don’t forget, to sign up for the team, or to donate, just go here.

Since this is a home meeting, RSVPs are required, in order to get the details on where exactly. If you are interested in attending, please email lupecphx@yahoo.com.

Oh, and hey, wasn’t last month’s meet fun? Thanks again to the Ruby Room for hosting us. Too bad about the mint juleps. They were a bit mouthwashy.

‘Til we meet again, cheers!

Start stretching, and grab your sippy-cups! March 27, 2008

A Pinkie Drinkie October 23, 2007

In anticipation of tomorrow night’s Pink-A-Rama event, I decided to try my hand at making one of the vintage drinks we are offering – the Pink Lady.

To many, what comes to mind when hearing that name is a rich, sweet, milkshake-like concoction. That is the version that was popular in the 60s and 70s. But if you look back to the 30s, you’ll find that the Pink Lady was once a sophisticated, dry, and somewhat tart cocktail.

This is the version we will be offering at Pink-A-Rama:

  • 1 1/2 oz. gin
  • 1/2 oz . applejack
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/2 an egg white
  • 1-4 dashes of grenadine

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake briskly, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.

Sorry to say, I don’t stock applejack in my bar. But I did have Cointreau. I subbed that in, and made a Boxcar, which was darn tasty!

Here are the other two vintage cocktails that we’ll be offering:

The Real Cosmopolitan:

  • 1 1/2 oz gin
  • 2 dashes Cointreau
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 tsp. raspberry syrup

Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

And finally, for the designated drivers we love so much, a true Shirley Temple:

  • 4 oz. ginger ale
  • 2/3 oz. grenadine
  • 2 oz. orange juice

Pour ginger ale and orange juice over ice. Add grenadine. Garnish with lemon slice and a cherry.

Now I am so thirsty! See you tomorrow night at the Ruby Room!

Are you ready for Pink-A-Rama? October 5, 2007

We’re hosting our first big-deal event, and it’s all about pink!

Three special edition vintage drinks, made as they were back in the day, will be deftly created by the wonderful Ruby Room mixologists. Those drinks are the Pink Lady, the Cosmopolitan, and as our designated driver special – the Shirley Temple. A dollar from each vintage drink will be donated to the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization.

Starting at 10:00pm, a DJ will be playing some fun lounge and retro tunes to keep up the mood. Rummage through your closet and don those pink tees, hot pants, feather boas, or whatever else you can find.

In addition, amp.az will be featuring this event on their site, and will be out there with a video camera to capture our inaugural event. Pretty cool huh?

Time to mark those calendars and tell your friends to save the date! Make it a girls night out, a romantic evening, or just a brief swing-by to check out the festivities!
