2 Grown-Up Recipes For Your Next Cocktail Party

Hosting a cocktail party in Chicago is a project. We can't simply set out a bottle of vodka and some mixers and hope for the best. Amateur! The next time you host your A-list friends for a fete, pour and serve as the grown-ups do. We recently found two recipes to have on hand the next time you're in the mood for some at-home imbibing: Polenta thyme cookies with honey and ricotta for snacking, and a proper Carpano Antica Manhattan to sip. Both are relatively simple recipes to master, meaning it won't to too hard to score that haute hostess reputation you deserve. As far as your outfit is concerned, you can take a page from our playbook here, too. (Fresh & Foodie) (Man Up Chicago)
