If you commission a boundlessly talented artist, it's best not to curtail his creativity with all kinds of directions, or risk getting caricatured in a dune buggy, even though you've never even been to Pismo Beach! Because the mistake's even more dire if your artist paints with booze, let HMS Cocktails do their thing.
Launching this minute, HMS is a drink catering service run by a triumvirate of local cocktalian demi-gods -- Scott Beattie (Cyrus), Marco Dionysos (most recently of Clock Bar), and H. Joseph Ehrmann (Elixir and Cocktail Ambassadors) -- who'll quickly consult you pre-party regarding general direction (desired spirit(s), flavor, color, etc), before creating an off-the-wall, just for-your-peeps program that they'll boldly execute start to finish without honoring a single request for a vodka-soda (you lose, Sully). They'll rock 8-10 unique creations per shindig (which they'll bring out on trays 10-15 at a time) which range wildly from a Sarticious gin "Frondsong" (rounded out with Herbsaint, lemon, chiffonade of anise, pickled fennel...), to the Germain-Robin Apple Brandy "Autumn Apple", mixed with Sonoma Sparkler apple juice, topped with apple foam, and garnished with chips of baked mangosteen...JK they're apple chips LOL. If you wanna go theatrical, these guys can whip up bowls of flaming classic Mai Tai, or more diabolically, Sazerac that's poured from a tea kettle containing dry ice, whose spout steams as its contents fill tea cups, making this by far the craziest tea party you've ever thrown for your niece, even if Bun-Bun and Felix the Bear blatantly ignored the RSVP!
For some unfathomable reason, HMS's priced competitively with your average, rentable no-name barback service -- humility you could learn a thing or two from, given your big head.
