Like much of America, Jennifer Aniston is intrigued by a certain ABC dating show. But that's because she finds it totally baffling.

"You know what I find fascinating? The Bachelor," the actress, 41, tells the Allure in its February issue, on newsstands Jan. 25. "I was mesmerized by how these girls, they meet this guy, they have three dates together or something, and they're weeping as though they've just lost the love of their life. I don't understand that."

What she does understand is friendship and fun – in particular, party planning, which she says is the career that got away.

"I should have been a party planner," the Just Go with It star says. "I'm a good mixologist in terms of personality types. I do a tree trimming party every year – 15 years I've been doing this. At my tree-trimming party we always do chili: turkey, regular beef, and vegetarian. Everybody is satisfied."

She's also well aware of what ruins a party. "A really drunk person," she says. "Trust me. It's happened."

That could be because she makes a mean drink – actually two.

"I can make two drinks really well: a dirty martini and a Bloody Mary," she says. "People are like, 'You make the best Bloody Marys,' and my secret ingredient is basically Mr and Mrs T's Bloody Mary Mix. It's not some fancy mix that they do with the horseradish and Worcestershire sauce. It's the 7-Eleven of Bloody Marys. It's the trashiest."
