Sipping a dirty martini in a luxe hotel bar is only fun maybe 5 nights out of the week, max...and never on a Saturday. To stir the gin-soaked blue cheese stuffed olives up a bit, I suggest throwing a really fun and fashionable game night.
2. Stock up on new alcohols. The one above is ROOT Organic Liqueur and is 80 proof, 40% alc/vol. Try it neat, over ice, or in a cocktail...sounds like a pretty great drinking game to me right there.
3. What's strong liqueur without salty snacks? Fred's at Barneys New York has amazing mixes like the one above available at Barneys or online. I love the New York Mix because it reminds me of sitting in a plush chair at Salon de Ning, the rooftop bar at the Peninsula Hotel NYC playing backgammon on my boyfriend of the time's iPad.
5. Lastly, what's a game night without milk and cookies? Or was that Christmas Eve...I forget. Regardless, the follow are my three favorite cookie recipes - and they're super easy too!
