My drink of choice is a dirty vodka martini - not a terribly authentic retro cocktail, but we needn't tell anyone it is vodka and not gin. It still looks classy - a nice martini glass and a few olives skewered on a toothpick.
I would argue that presentation is just as important as the cocktail recipes, especially if you are hosting a retro cocktail party. Whatever you choose to drink, including ginger ale, will taste better when served in a fabulous glass. Bonus points if you choosing bottles from a fancy bar cart or globe bar!
Shake one up in this space-age shaker
and serve in a classic martini glass.
Don't forget to finish off your cocktails with swizzle sticks, picks for cocktail onions (or olives), and kitschy cocktail umbrellas! You can find some of my cocktail ideas here!
