Drink

Bourbon Punch

While watching: Stranger Things

 

You see a regular bourbon punch, I see a subtle tribute to no one other than Eleven. Sure, it’s not quite a movie, but considering the full season show is available now, it essentially qualifies as one. Yep, Stranger Things is back for a second season, and this bacon and waffle-garnished cocktail is just the recipe to whip up before a viewing.

The Redrum

The Shining

 

Who doesn’t remember the classic scene from The Shining? In this inspired cocktail, a red wine and rum pairing is elevated by the bold notes of cinnamon and a hint of lemon. It’s significantly less frightening than its theatrical namesake.
