Cowboys & Cocktails
Let’s be honest. What goes better with hot men than hard liquor?
Nothing. That’s right.
Sylvie Proulx is the food-obsessed blonde seductress hiding in the body of a skinny, well-manicured, celibate jogging New Yorker. Once a year, she sneaks off to Las Vegas to get away from her life as it is, and have a Madame-Eve-approved One Night Stand. She knows that she’ll have one magic night of food exploration and hot sex. But she’s always afraid that along will come a man who’ll show her that her old life isn’t enough.
So Sylvie’s signature cocktail for this weekend is: THE FORBIDDEN LOVER. A fruity, decadent cocktail with a fresh twist that looks sinful and tastes like a lover’s kiss.
Sylvie doesn’t know it yet, but her forbidden lover is right around the corner, and he will make her wonder if she should go back to New York, or follow her heart to Freewill. Let’s look at the mix for Sylvie’s cocktail:
1 oz. blood orange juice
1 oz. Gran marnier
Dash of simple syrup, 2 strawberries
4 slices of cucumber
Muddle the strawberries with the cucumber in the simple syrup. Add liquids and shake. Strain into martini glass. Garnish with a spiral of cucumber and orange peel hearts. Twist on a classic.
