Park Avenue Princess

As served at MGM Mirage bars and lounges, $12

We couldn’t resist. The shoes, the cocktails, the shoes … Sex and the City 2 is almost upon us, and like so many other national holidays—or events that we think warrant similar attention and time off work—it gives us good reason to raise a glass and spread some festive cheer. To that end, MGM Mirage has partnered with official Sex and the City sponsor Skyy Vodka to develop a line of sexed-up vodka-infusion cocktails.

The creations (there are five of them in all) are available through May 31 at all MGM properties in Las Vegas, and a portion of the proceeds benefit the Nevada Cancer Institute.

  • 2 ounces Skyy Infusions Ginger
  • 1 ounce honey syrup (½ ounce honey dissolved into ½ ounce water)
  • ¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • twist of lemon to garnish

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a twist of lemon. Alternatively, you can double/triple/quadruple the recipe—heck, make enough to fill a pitcher—and share with fellow Sex and the City fans while watching re-runs.
