How to throw a George Clooney-approved cocktail party

By: Elle Canada
Doesn't this look fun?

When I asked Thor Richardson, the Director of International Markets for Casamigos Tequila (and pal of Mr. Clooney) how George likes to drink his tequila, his answer delighted me: “On the rocks, usually. But I’ve seen him drink it straight from the bottle.” While the actor and co-founder (along with Rande Gerber, aka, Cindy Crawford’s husband) of the wildly successful tequila brand isn’t one for cocktails, that shouldn’t stop you from whipping up some tequila-based tipples at your next gathering. While you're at it, throw on an old episode of ER until real-life George stops by.
