My daughter's Bat Mitzvah is coming up and instead of an open bar (because the event is a lunch and an open bar seems unnecessary), I'd like to have someone create a "vanity" cocktail that the bartender can serve in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions, along with other non-alcoholic options. I know this isn't an original idea -- "vanity" cocktails pop up at parties all the time. But ... does anyone know how one goes about getting one of these created? All suggestions welcome.
Well, you could go into one of the better cocktail bars in town (southwark, farmer's cabinet, the franklin, oyster house, etc) and ask for the bar manager (which is usually the big shot in these places), then tell them your situation.
I'm sure a number of them would bite. They'd probably want an idea of what type of liquor you were wanting to use in terms of the theme (they're not going to just pick something, not knowing your taste), and come up with a recipe for you. Of course, they wouldn't do this on-call, but with enough notice and tinkering, they'd certainly have no problem doing it.
Of course, they wouldn't do this for free, but I'd imagine most would take $300-$500 to do such a thing for you.
Or you can just google something. Or frequent those establishments for ideas of your own.
My favorite of late is a bit of aperol with some prosecco or champagne. Though, that's a bit summery for a fall affair...and I don't know how it would translate into a non-alcoholic version.
You can make the oleo-saccahrum ahead of time.
I think the NYTimes had a good article about non-alcoholic drinks a few weeks ago. Still...punch. It's awesome, when done correctly.
