|Some specially crafted cocktail party ideas just in time for Fashion Week 2013!|
Fashion Shows are known for their high-powered music...and that's just on the runway. After parties are even more crazy. Rather than hire a DJ, I have a Karaoke Machine that docks my iPod for endless song selections. This is being done at a lot of store events too. The tower speakers are amazing for sound quality and with two microphones, everyone gets a chance to step up to the mic and belt one out. Easy to read lyrics appear on a full color 7" screen. This is so much fun!

You can go the Skinny Girl Cocktail route but I prefer to craft my own drinks and keep the alcohol light. Always have some hot or cold hor dourves available buffet style so your guests can have something to eat with their drinks. You don't want the other editors waking up the next day with a headache! Here are some special drink recipes just for NYC's Fashion Week!

Intense and long-lasting. That’s the inspiration for this sparkling later afternoon highball.
1 part vanilla vodka
1 part Drambuie
Lemon peel, garnish (because it’s easy, otherwise use orange peel)
THE MARKET EDITOR
Anyone who spends half their time on an airplane searching for the newest designs always looks forward to the comforts of home. In this case it is a sparkling version of a “whiskey sour”.
2 oz quality American Bourbon (Whiskey)
1 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
(if you need to sweeten it add a teaspoon of agave)
Vigorously shake the whiskey, lemon juice and egg white in a shaker. Once there is a bit of froth pour over ice in a double old-fashioned glass. Top generously with Polar® Seltzer.
Every young American designer needs a sparkling European patron. A perfect combination of old world and new.
2 parts Campari
1 part quality Gin
Splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice
This ultra “skinny” cocktail gets the job done.
2 oz quality lemon vodka
