I’ve been doing lots of maths to work out how many slices of bread I need for 250 canapes, and roughly estimating how many capers are in a standard sized jar. I will be demonstrating three film star favourites and then folks can make their own versions. I think there are two places left – don’t forget your tupperware!
I’m going to be talking a bit about film star cocktails, and as I don’t want to fall foul of any licensing laws, I’ll be serving up non-alcoholic Shirley Temples. She wasn’t a silent star of course, but all my silent star cocktails are very boozy!
I decided to make a couple of “test” ones last night to see how much grenadine was appropriate. There are lots of recipes around the internet. Some call for ginger ale, some 7-up or lemonade, some for a bit of both. Greg of Recipes4Rebels has written a lovely post about Chasen’s – thought to be the place where the recipe originated – so I went for his version.
But I must admit, I used Crabbie’s Ginger Beer (alcoholic) – and when the girls found out it was boozy, there was a bit of a party!
