Girl's Night In

Thursday night private mixology lesson with your besties anyone? Our dear friend Karina co-hosted just that — a lively get-together with close friends (some of whom she's known since grade school), to learn how to make some simple and delicious cocktails à la This Girl Walks Into A Bar. Held at Karina's friend's exquisite home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Cheviot Hills (lucky us!), this group of women learned how to make three easy and festive cocktails: A sparkling cocktail, perfect for serving at the beginning of the night, a raspberry mint cocktail, a blackberry ginger cocktail, and a coffee cocktail. Try these recipes yourselves and let us know what you think!_1030072   _1030091 _1030098 _1030101 _1030104 Sparkling Cocktail 1/8 teaspoon fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon orange liqueur (triple sec, Cointreau, Grand Marnier, Gran Gala) 4-5 ounces Brut (or your favorite sparkling wine)
