PINK PLANET COCKTAIL RECIPE
I like the art of cocktails. The bartenders. The shakers. James Bond drinking a Dry Martini. The infinite possibilities and combinations of tastes and colours. The talking. The hands holding glasses. His wet lips smiling after the taste. The word cocktail party, cocktail dress, cocktail glass, cocktail bar. There is such poetry in a cocktail. From a huge cocktail party for two, under the pinkier sky in the world, there goes PINK PLANET RECIPE: Take 3 oz. champagne; 3/4 oz. strawberry liqueur; 2 oz. strawberry puree; 1/2 oz. lemon juice; 1 tablespoon caster sugar. Rim a white wine with strawberry liqueur and caster sugar. Blend all ingredients -except champagne- briefly with threequarters of a glass full of crushed ice. Pour into the glass and add champagne. Garnish with a strawberry-half and serve with short straws. Life is a cocktail party.
