Getting ready to get reacquainted with Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha with Sex and the City 2 this weekend? Set the right mood with cocktails inspired by the popular franchise!

Andrea Correale, President of Elegant Affairs Caterers in New York, created some drink recipes inspired by the latest chapter, which finds the ladies decamping to Abu Dhabi for a Middle Eastern vacation. She also mixes up a play on their signature drink, the Cosmopolitan, called the Desert Sunrise. So, before you head to the multiplex, pick up a cocktail shaker and try these out.
