Booze Clues: 4 Golden Globes- Inspired Cocktails to Try

 

A Toast to the Best

The Hollywood Foreign Press is celebrating the best of the best (at least in their opinion) on the big and small screen at the Golden Globes tonight. I know, you’re more concerned with who wins on the red carpet, and I’m totally consumed with the shoes. Still I think we can all agree that a good drink goes well with the festivities. Here are a couple of Golden Globes inspired cocktails you may want to sip while crossing your fingers for your favorite stars.

 

Herradura Velvet Rope

The Velvet Rope

Ingredients:

· 2 oz Herradura Reposado

· ¾ oz Fresh squeezed lemon Juice

· ½ oz Simple syrup

· ½ oz egg white

· ½ oz Red Wine – Zinfandel works best here

Place Herradura Reposado, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white into an empty shaker. Close shaker and shake with no ice, this technique is known as dry shaking and it emulsifies the egg leaving the drink light and fluffy. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled coupe/cocktail glass. Float the red wine over the foam.
