I was chatting with some friends down in Pacific Beach yesterday, when it occurred to me that I had it all wrong. I thought Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was going to be this summer’s blockbuster, runaway hit. No. Hell no. Everyone, well more specifically, every girl in the country it seems, is going to be lining up this weekend to be the first to see the hugely anticipated Sex and the City movie.
My girlfriends in San Diego are doing it the right way. First, get dressed super sexy; classy, but still totes flirty. Second, lose the makeup as the movie is practically guaranteed to invoke sobbing. Third, down a few Perfect Cosmopolitans. They were giddy with excitement when I gave them the recipe, so now I give it to you.
This is a twist of the Cosmo that Carrie Bradshaw absolutely flips a bitch about when a bartender screws it up. She thinks hers is perfect, but the Mutineers can make anything better. Get started on this today, and you should be ready for Saturday night with Sarah Jessica Parker.
