Embracing the taste of a “really good hug”

Erin Sheahan of James Island wants to invite three celebrities who are no longer with us to her dream dinner table to indulge in a refreshingly spicy cocktail, Thai noodle dish and a rich, chocolate dessert.

DREAM DINNER GUESTS: Heath Ledger, Bob Saget and Robin Williams. “Bob Saget and Robin Williams would be hilarious together. And, I love Heath Ledger, so I just want to learn more about him.”

DRINK: The Double Standard from The Cocktail Club. “Many first-timers may think the gin and vodka combination would be overwhelming, but the combination of heat from the serrano gin and the refreshing cucumber vodka creates a perfect balance.”

APPETIZER: Whipped Feta from Butcher & Bee. “This tastes how a really good hug feels. I’ve tried to make it on my own a few times and have never even come close. Don’t sleep on this.”

ENTREE: Drunken Thai Noodles from CO. “Like a lot of people, I think rice noodles can be a bit dull — but that sure does change once they get drunk. These noodles are unexpectedly loud and make their presence known, especially with a little Singapore sauce on top.”

DESSERT: Brownie sundae from Kaminsky’s. “Is there anything that warms the soul like a brownie sundae? I don’t think so. It is a majestic combination of gooey warmth and refreshing ice cream.”
