The important thing is not to over-react and not to be over-ambitious....
Maybe the boss hates the formal and delights in the homely touch...
Just a last thought - when you've planned it all to the best of your abilituy remember to relax and enjoy yourself.
The boss will find you irrestisible.
You'll be at your most nervous (you may as well admit that) so have the drinks ready well ahead of time with plenty of ice, lots of big glasses, slices of lemon and a large bowl of nuts. If you can find out the boss's favourite drink - it might be something slightly out of the ordinary like the driest of dry martiinis, in which case have it mixed and in the freezer together with the glass - you're ahead on marks.
It's up to you how long you linger over drinks.
Australian Home Journal n/d but looks somewhere in the seventies.
"The boss will find you irrestisible."
"It's up to you how long you linger over drinks."
" lots of big glasses,"
But I thought men don't make passes at girls who wear glasses. Especially big ones.

Well, I don't wear glasses, so I wouldn't know
But I do suspect that given the combo of high nerves and big glasses someone may make a spectacle of themselves.
And I do know that men make passes at girls who wear parkas.
(ah, the good old days of walking my labrador around the river.)

"But I do suspect that given the combo of high nerves and big glasses someone may make a spectacle of themselves."
Not to mention, in the context, cocktails and highballs.
PS: I must ask my analyst if I may have watched too many Carry On movies, episodes of Are You Being Served, and Mel Brookes productions.

Alas - so many cocktails names, so many innuendos to mix, FX, but all I can think of in the context is "Screaming Optometrist". Or maybe "Slippery Lens".
