Great Gatsby: The Roaring 20’s

Tejas and Twisty are having a joint birthday party and the theme is Great Gatsby: The Roaring 20’s.

I personally am less than thrilled with an era when dress necklines were decorous and proper.

But that’s only because some of my most beautiful assets are best viewed with low décolleté.

Nevertheless, I am happy to celebrate with Tejas and Twisty.

I’ve pulled together (ANOTHER) costume and I’m quite excited about it. I hope it looks as good on me as it does on the computer (yes, I am an internet shopper).

First, there’s a gorgeous cream colored dress with fringe.

I’m trying to talk Tejas and Mary, his girlfriend, into serving a sophisticated cocktail with the regular bar fare.

Something like a Hemingway (made with Bacardi Limon, lime juice, Luxardo, and grapefruit juice), or an Aviation cocktail (made with gin, lemon juice, Luxardo, and Crème de Violette).

Cocktail making is labor intensive, but oh-so-representative of the Roaring 20s.

But since it is so labor intensive, we may go with a punch instead of individual cocktails.

Either way, I’m destined to have fun.

Cheers!
