We won't beat around the bush... we had a lot planned for 2020, but a lot of our plans got scrapped when we were hit with a once in a lifetime global pandemic. Who can blame us!? Instead, we are spending a lot more time than we had anticipated binge-watching & enjoying a libation or two.... So we wanted to share our knowledge of perfectly-paired cocktails with the perfect tv show for your streaming enjoyment! Cheers & happy watching!

Monday: Parks & Recreation & a Jalapeno Margarita

It may be a Monday but today we’re taking a page from Tom Haverford’s book. While his rendition of “snake juice” might come across a bit different than ours… there is still that bite to be feared! With Tom Haverford’s cocktail, it was the hangover that followed… with our’s, it’s that spicy jalapeno!

 


 

 ingredients: 

 2 oz tequila
 1 oz triple sec
 ½ lime, seeded & juiced
 ½ jalapeno, cut to thin,     round slices
 Splash of lemonade
 1 lime wedge
 Lime Margarita Salt

 Add all ingredients into a   shaker with ice. Shake until   cold. Fill your Outset   Margarita Glass with ice &   pour your margarita.
 Salt or no salt? If salt on   your margarita is a must,   pick up Lime Flavored   Rimming Salt to take your   Spicy Jalapeno  Margarita to   the next level! Wipe your   lime around the entire rim of   your glass then dip into the   salt.

Saturday: Friends & Whipped Coffee Cocktail

“I’ll be there for you cause you’re there for me too” 🎶🎵 Yes, this is the Friend’s theme song, but also how we feel about coffee! Whipped Coffee is one of the best things that 2020 has given us. This new trend that originated on TikTok as a regular coffee beverage has taken the world by storm! So obviously, the next step was how to make this trendy beverage even better. The answer to that question? Kahlua, of course!
 Ingredients:
1 tbsp instant espresso powder
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp hot water
1 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp kahlua
2 tbsp + ¾ c nut milk (or half & half)

Optional: 1 tbsp fudge sauce
Cocoa powder for dusting
Combine the instant coffee & sugar with a mini whisk, the stir in the hot water & continue to whisk until your coffee mixture has thickened & becomes light in color. Combine the sweetened condensed milk, kahlua, & nut milk, pour into a glass over ice. Top with your whipped coffee mixture & your optional garnishes & sit down on that couch in Central Perk... er, your living room!
