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!
Don't forget, if you make a recipe, share a picture with us on social media & tag us @inthekitchenpgh to get featured on our page.
Saturday: Last Chance U & An Ice Cold Local IPA
Alright Alright, we just need to come out & say it…. We really miss Football!

So relax & unwind with a little bit of America’s favorite sport & a local IPA. May we suggest Thunderhop from the locally based Church Brew Works!

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!
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.

It’s #ThirstyThursday & the Meredith Palmer in us is coming out. I mean can you blame us? This week has been stressful enough! But luckily for us, we don’t work with a group of people quite like the cast of The Office! While we can’t blow off steam at Pour Richard’s Pub happy hour with Michael Scott & crew, we can take a load off at home with a cold “Meredith Palmer” in our hand instead!

Just simply add all of the ingredients together! That's it. Easy & simple!
