With A Revenge Game Upon Us, Wet Your Whistle!

One of the things I have received the most positive feedback over in my time as a writer for this site is a series of articles I did leading up to the draft: the Eight days of Draftmas. Specifically I got a lot of positive feedback about the recipes for snack foods and adult beverages in the second half of the series. I have crafted a cocktail that should be both delicious and satisfying.

Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge

You see, the Cowboys currently sit two games up on the Giants, with two games remaining. The Giants remaining opponents are in their division, making a pair of wins unlikely as the NFC East rivalries have always been contentious. If they can hold up their end of the bargain, winning both, and the Lions beat the Cowboys this weekend, that would leave the Cowboys needing to beat the Eagles to keep their division title.

The Giants have beaten the Cowboys twice, giving them the tie breaker. That is how the Lions can set up a potential revenge game against the Cowboys at Ford Field in the Wildcard round of the playoffs. I recall the 2013 inside job in which the referees decided late in the game that it would be better for television ratings if the Cowboys were to win.

It is also possible that the officials simply had money on that game, they are just part time employees after all. We can only hope that a more honest group of officials are put in this year’s iteration. This game does not interfere with the league’s ongoing conspiracy. Perhaps the league will allow the Lions to win this one. This cocktail is notable for it’s color, the lovely Honolulu Blue that we all know and love.

A Cocktail Called Revenge

1-1/2 oz Gin of your choice, but my recommendation is Hendricks.

1-1/2 oz fresh Honolulu Kool-Aid sour mix,

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup freshly mixed unsweetened blue kool-aid
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
    • Bring the sugar and water to a boil for about 7 minutes
    • When the syrup has cooled mix it with the Kool-aid in a resealable bottle
  • This should give you enough mix for a few cocktails

1/2 oz egg white (1 tablespoon)

Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker until foamy, likely a few minutes.

Put two or three ice cubes in a glass and pour the mixture over the ice in to the glass; because revenge is a drink best served cold.
