Round 3: Cocktails for Fabulous Folks!

Here's round three of cocktails for fabulous donors to our fundraising campaign for Feeding America! We still owe a couple of fabulous ladies cocktails that will appear in upcoming episodes, but don't worry, ladies - we'll get you those recipes before the episodes go online so that you can enjoy your drinks sooner! In the meantime, here are three lovely libations, with our profound thanks to the generous donors who inspired them:

Licor de Amor

1 1/2 oz brandy
1 1/2 oz anise liqueur
1/4 oz fresh lime juice

A dash of Peychaud's bitters

Combine brandy, anise liqueur and lime juice, shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Top with soda and a dash of Peychaud's bitters.


Naughty or Nice?

2 oz amber rum
1/2 oz Aperol
