What up? What’s happening?

How come sports people think cheap brandy is a status symbol?

Make a pyramid of cheering peep-leaders, and salute your favorite idol-of-the-minute with our latest abomination.

Peep Love (Valentine’s Day option #1)

Peep Love (Valentine’s Day option #1)

Equal Parts:

  • Hennessy
  • Alizé
  • Club Soda

Two pink peeps, stuck together

    Based on the noxious nightclub drink “Thug Love”, this one mystifies me.  Alizé, in case you aren’t familiar, is cheap brandy mixed with sticky-sweet fruit juice… sort of like a wine cooler, but with a special grade of liquor so awful even the homeless won’t drink it.  And then the drink is mixed with Hennessy?  (Some Henny is ok, but this drink is made from the very worst).

    So, it’s about as silly as mixing a “wine cooler” with wine.  No wonder they have to add the club soda to make it tolerable. I have no idea what “thug” would be caught anywhere near this drink, except maybe as the beginning of taking advantage of someone underage…

    Don’t try this one at home.  But at least the peeps are cute!

    • 2oz Pear-Infused Brandy
    • 4oz Ketel One Vodka
    • 1oz Dry Vermouth
    • Ground Cinnamon
    • 2 peeps, still stuck together

    Place cinnamon on a saucer.  Wet the rim of the martini glass, and slide it around upside-down on the saucer to apply the cinnamon rim.  Fill a large shaker with ice, and add all three ingredients.  Strain into martini glass, carefully avoiding the cinnamon, and float two peeps on top as garnish.
