This is a great week of entertainment. Last night, Ali Fedotowsky began a new season of "The Bachelorette;" tonight a new "Dancing with the Stars" champion will be crowned and Thursday "Sex and the City 2" opens at theaters.
To celebrate all this awesome entertainment, I offer a delicious cocktail — The Flirtini. You probably remember Carrie being introduced to the Flirtini as a new "it" beverage during the HBO days of "Sex and City." Carrie had been hiding out at home with Aidan for so long that a new drink popped up on the party scene without her knowledge. This is one of many reasons why Carrie should absolutely stay with Big and reject any advances from Aidan in this second film.
Given all the flirting going on last night's "The Bachelorette," the name of this cocktail is perfect for Ali to share with her remaining 17 potential husbands. Let's hope Ali and someone from the show become the new Trista and Ryan. My early favorite is Justin (aka Rated R). Maybe I just feel badly that he got picked on for being an entertainment wrestler, but he was so sweet in that scene with his grandma! I just have to believe he's got a good heart. My pick for the season's Wes-like villian is Craig M., the guy with the crazy hair and mean looks, but Kasey seemed plenty creepy, too.
I'm hoping Olympic gold-medal winning ice skater Evan Lysacek takes home the mirror ball trophy tonight, but he probably should have flirted a bit more with the viewing ladies. He needs to take some advice from Maks. Evan seems a bit shy, so perhaps if he drank a couple of Flirtini's he'd become more bold.
1 ounce vodka
2 ounces Champagne
2 ounces pineapple juice
Combine vodka, champagne and pineapple juice in a highball glass filled with ice.
