In our post yesterday, you may remember that we claimed there’s not too much to look forward to after Labor Day. You may also remember that we listed TV premieres as one of the few bright spots in an otherwise boring 3 month period. I guess someone over at a TV network must be a reader, because we just got a bunch of awesome recipes in our mailbox that are designed to go with your favorite fall shows! Now, you can host a get-together for your favorite show’s premiere that’s guaranteed to keep that boredom at bay for a little bit longer. Only 84 days till Thanksgiving…….
Today’s drink is the Scandal-tini. I’m sure a lot of y’all watch Scandal already, but if not, there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy it. It has plane crashes and murders for action, wealthy families and assumed identities for intrigue, a strong, independent female lead you can root for, and weekly drama, plot twists, and cliff hangers that leave you wanting more Scandal week in and week out. Obviously not every show is for everyone, but this show has such a good mix of entertaining ingredients that you should at least give it a try! It’s available for streaming on Netflix so there’s no excuse not to!
Here’s the recipe –
1 ½ oz. CAMUS® VS Elegance Cognac
½ oz. pineapple juice
2 dashes of bitters
2 dashes of maraschino liqueur
Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a candied cherry.
