Throw a 'Charlie's Angels'-Themed Party (Without Packing Heat)!

charlies angelsHave you heard? Charlie's Angels is back! ABC is reviving the action-ladies' hit -- this time without the Farrah hair (I know, I'm bummed, too). Three bad girls leave behind exciting careers in thievery and explosives to fight crime in sultry Miami. It's like Sex and the City only with better weather and more martial arts. So how about celebrating with a Charlie's Angels-themed party?

The beauty, brains, and high kicking all begin this Thursday and it's not too late to plan your own shindig! Club 50 at the Viceroy Miami Beach can help you get started with a sexy cocktail in honor of our favorite trio of gun-toting, crime-fighting women.

Ladies, get out your martini glasses!

Charlie's Angels Martini

  • 1.5 oz. Cristal
  • 0.5 oz. lime juice
  • 0.25 oz. simple syrup
  • 0.25 oz. triple sec
  • 0.25 oz. Crème de Violette
Shake up (or stir, for you non-007 types), garnish with a cherry, and sip away!

Okay, so maybe you don't want guests dancing on the tables before the show even begins? In that case, put out some Miami-themed grub, too, like:

Mini Cubano sandwiches, Miami's most famous dish. There are a variety of recipes out there, but the basics are pretty simple: roast pork, ham, cheese, pickle, and maybe a little mustard on a bun -- smoosh-grilled, panini style. 

Tropical fruit salad. Hack up some pineapple, mango, bananas, and papaya. Make fake Kung-Fu noises while you chop. Serve with toothpicks.

Plantain chips. Not to be confused with dried banana chips from the bulk section of the health food store. You'll find these where you buy other Latin foods.

And now, to decorate! Can't afford to hire Kelly Wearstler, the brains behind the Club 50 interior design? Me neither. But you can pick up this fun party decorating tip from her: Cover your table with candles and 12-inch square mirror tiles for a quick, glam look.

Now put on your sexiest, slinkiest silk dress and some stilettos. What, not in your closet? Well, how about dressing like the bad guys: jeans and a loud tropical shirt. Now it's a party!

Would you throw a Charlie's Angels-themed party? Or do you hate the idea of the remake and are refusing to watch?
