Everyone was tasked with bringing a bottle of booze, while the host provided an assortment of mixers and garnishes. There was a wall of classic cocktail recipes for those who wanted to play mixologist. Me, I was happy with a good ol' amaretto sour (coincidentally, one of the only "hard liquor" cocktails I would drink in college. I know, I'm such a girl.)
2 oz honey-pineapple vodka
2 oz tonic water (could alternately use sparkling/seltzer water for a fizzy version...or even just ginger ale)
1 oz honey ginger simple syrup
fresh pineapple, honey & turbinado sugar (to garnish)
In a shaker, mix the vodka and simple syrup with ice and shake to combine.
Dip the rim of the glass in a small plate of honey, and then subsequently into a small plate of sugar to create the sugared rim.
Fill the glass with ice, pour in the vodka mixture, and top with tonic water, and then garnish with a slice of pineapple.
