I love the cocktail culture in the Pink Panther movie of the 1960s. It was so glamorous, so effortlessly swank -- and nobody seemed to be trying too hard. Since I can't get myself (or my friends) invited to one of those celluloid soirees, I do what I can to re-create the vibe when I entertain.

This makes it possible for me to spend time mixing with my guests rather than mixing drinks all night.
