B. Smith's Restaurant welcomes Cougar the Musical to the neighborhood by adding the shows signature cocktail, "The Cougartini" to its Broadway Cocktail Menu. It will be unveiled to the public on Wednesday, September 12 at 6PM at B. Smiths at 320 West 46th Street
"The Cougartini" is made with Pomegranate Juice and Vanilla Vodka, "So it has the antioxidants to keep you feeling young; And the Vodka to help you forget that you're not."
Cougar the Musical by Donna Moore, directed by Tony-nominated Lynne Taylor-Corbett, unleashes three divine but disillusioned women who develop a taste for hot, young men. They let their inner cougar roar and purr, finding self-love and empowerment in the process. The sexy, ferocious cast of three fabulous-over-forty women and one multi-talented boy toy sing and dance their way through a satiating range of original songs, from grinding blues, to doo-wop, to pop to "Julio" - a romantic ballad, sung to a vibrator. Hilarious, soulful and sexy, Cougar the Musical is a madcap ride from Cougar Bar to nail salon to boudoir and back as the women learn to say "yes" to getting older, "yes" to trust and friendship and "yes" to proving that love is ageless.
