I hate Halloween theme parties.

A dear friend is throwing a Halloween party. The theme is "Cocktails," as in "dress up as a cocktail/liquor/beer/your alcohol of choice." I hate the theme, but I am being forced to partake.

Several friends are going the punny route with this. Some are going the very literal route. Bloody Marys, Old Fashioneds, Shirley Temples, and god help me, Red-Headed Sluts. You get the idea.
I'd like the costume to be clever and minimalist, consisting mainly of cheap accessories that I can ditch easily. (For example, someone suggested I procure an old pair of boxing gloves, write "Bacardi" on them, and be Rum Punch. Something like this would work.) I do not want to dress up as Manhattan, or a wild turkey, or Jose Cuervo.
I am female. (though not opposed to wearing a fake moustache. In fact, they are encouraged.)
