I’d like to start something where I give the drink recipe that will be featured in each weeks show. (I don’t know if Adam Reed did it on purpose, but just about every episode has it’s own distinct cocktail, that is not always mentioned by name, but is definitely shown). The drinks usually have to do with the setting of each episode, and thus, generally do not give away anything about the plot that isn’t already mentioned in the weekly promos on FX (or Hulu or Fiver, or whatever you watch it on).
So without hesitation, for this weeks season premiere, “Swiss Miss” the drink of choice is:
THE GREEN RUSSIAN
(this is not the standard Green Russian,
but a version insinuated in the show)
- 1 part Absinthe
- 1 part Vodka
- 2 parts Cream (preferably from Holstein cows or Friesian cows)
over ice in a lowball glass, and stir. Garnish with Swiss Chocolate Truffles.(optional)
I’ll be honest with ya’ll, I haven’t tried it, so I have no clue how it tastes. Mix at your own risk.
That said, we’re having a party here in Atlanta for the premiere and will get shit faced enough to show up late for work on friday. For any of you that feel inclined to join us in spirit, I highly recommend it.
It’s what Duchess would want you to do.
