Baby Showers = Shots

The title of this post may seem a bit dramatic, but if you are a career gal (read: single) over 30 who needed to attend two baby showers in one day, sit through the movie Baby Mama with your parents, and do it all in your old hometown where ghosts of ex-hookups past pop up around every corner, you’d understand. Yep, that was my weekend, complete with all the family drama you’d come to expect from planning a baby shower for your soon-to-be nephews with you own mother.

I’ve never done well with showers — wedding or baby. No matter who they are for, I always seem to break out in a sweat upon arrival. Usually its nothing a glass of wine can’t cure, and the wine is usually flowin’ at a wedding shower. But at a baby shower, not so much, especially when the shower is a brunch (watered- down mimosas can only help so much). So after this weekend, I’ve come to the conclusion that every baby shower should come with its own signature shot — for the guests, that is (the mom-to-be can sip a Preggatini). I think any one of these will do just fine:

SoCo and Lime
1 1/2 oz. Southern Comfort
Splash of sweetened lime juice

Lemon Drop
1 part Absolut Vodka
1 part triple sec
1 part lemon juice

Straight up PatrĂ³n
