Happy Hour – His & Hers

It’s Saturday night and I want a cocktail. The only problem is I’ve been all nice and cozy in my yoga pants, curled up on the couch under my favorite blanket, watching football, and binge watching Boardwalk Empire all day.

What’s a girl to do? Well, I could hop in the car and go to my favorite cocktail bar. We go there so often I could probably get away with walking in in yoga pants with no makeup on. They probably wouldn’t even question it, ha!

OR I could take all the things I’ve learned from them over the years and make a delicious cocktail (or two) at home.

Since it’s Saturday and Ohio State won (woo!) I think the hubby and I will celebrate with a couple Buckeye inspired cocktails . Cheers!

Hers – Scarlet & Grey
2 oz. Watershed Distillery Barrel Aged Gin
3/4 oz. Dolin Rouge
3/4 oz. Earl Grey syrup*
1/2 oz. Shrub & Co. Blood Orange Shrub
1/2 oz. grenadine
2-3 dashes Angostura bitters
Orange peel garnish

Shake all ingredients but orange peel in a shaker with ice. Serve in a chilled couple. Garnish with orange.

*To make earl grey syrup: Steep 2 tea bags in 2 cups water in a saucepan until strong. Remove tea bags and add 1 cup granulated sugar. Heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and cool. Store in the refrigerator.
