Let's Start With a Drink

This happy couple is positively euphoric at the prospect of getting completely hammered. The man's eyes are drifting to a faraway happy place as he utilizes his trusty cocktail shaker. His stepford wife gazes at him in complete awe of his cocktail shaking ability. It's going to be a great night!
According to this supplement from the 1967 Plain Dealer "The successful host today no longer "pours a drink". He serves a variety of skillfully mixed, delicious drinks. It's the new status symbol." So drink up, and impress the neighbors.

hmm I am seeing it in a different way. I see him thinking about getting drunk and telling her what an unsatisfactory house-wife she is (maybe with a solid backhand for emphasis?). She, in turn, is reminding him of all the missionary sex and jello salads she provides him with. Who will win tonight?

Or maybe she is actually the neighbor's wife, not Mrs. Cocktail Shaker. In which case, a different angle...

Oh yes, I can see it now "Butch, I am going to show you what ladies home journal taught me this month. Try not to think about Gerty she is such a wet blanket"

Oh no, wait. People did not cheat back then!
