Sex and the City Movie Will Send You Vodka Shoes

Did you know that the hit HBO television series Sex and the City, about a self-centered clotheshorse and the women who indulge her, has been made into a movie, to be released nationwide on May 30th? Well, yeah. It's happening. And in an effort to promote the film, little shoeboxes containing a bottle of Skyy vodka are being sent around to various bloggers, reporters, shut-ins, and ladydrunks. Jeff Houck, who writes a blog called The Stew, received the little press kit/care package recently, and took a moment to analyze its contents. It explains the "spirit" of the movie: drinking! "Get in the spirit with cocktails themed after the characters who defined cocktail culture for an entire generation," a card in the box says. Ohhh. For an entire generation! And, whee: themed cocktails! (They're going to be served at fun, sexy Houlihan's restaurants across the land.) I can't wait to get drunk and shuffle around with my shoebox like a real career lady. Where's my press kit, movie people? After the jump, find each lady's distinctive cocktail!

CARRIE
2 ounces Skyy vodka
1 ounce X-Rated Fusion Liqueur
2 ounces cranberry juice
3/4 ounce sparkling apple cider
Shake Skyy, X-Rated and cranberry with ice and strain into chilled martini glass. Top with cider and garnish with a thin apple slice.

"Enjoy this cocktail over lunch or after work with your girlfriends to relax and kick off your Manolo Blahnik heels."

MIRANDA
2 ounces Skyy vodka
3/4 ounce Campari
2 ounces pomegranate juice
1 ounce Triple Sec
Squeeze of lemon
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

Notes: "As Miranda would say, 'Soul mates only exist in the Hallmark aisle of Duane Reade Drugs.' This hint of bitterness can be found in Miranda's cocktail but is softened by the sweet touches that make Miranda so loveable."

CHARLOTTE
2 ounces Skyy vodka
2 ounces pink lemonade
1 ounces Triple Sec
1/2 ounce Midori Melon liqueur
Shake with ice and strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with an edible flower.

Notes: "Charlotte's signature cocktail starts off a bit conservative, but then leaves them something for the imagination."

SAMANTHA
2 1/2 ounces Skyy vodka
1 1/2 ounces Cabo Wabo Anejo tequila
1 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
Shake with ice and strain into chilled martini glass. Rim glass with mixture of salt and small amount of white pepper. No garnish.

Notes: "Samantha definitely speaks her mind and reminds us that we all have a wild side waiting to be revealed."

In this case, "wild side" means reckless sexual behavior.

Drink up and party like a TV star might if she existed!
