Game and drinks night at Paul and Dan’s
After taking the train back from the suburbs, we went straight to Paul and Dan’s for a game night. And they had come up with a dink activity for us all!
- Everyone is randomly assigned a partner
- Everyone goes to the liquor cabinet and chooses a bottle of something that they think compliments their partner and explains why
- That person then has to find/invent a cocktail recipe using that ingredient, and makes enough portions for everyone to try
Then, after/as we taste them all, we judge a winner based on voting/criteria:
- “It” factor
Dan was given a rare sherry by Marybeth. He made some passion fruit sherry drink I can’t remember. I think based on a Lost Lake...
I was given a genepy by Paul. I made a Jungle Cat, but garnished with green chartreuse-soaked carrot and tequila-painted palm fronds
Marybeth was given apricot liqueuer by Dan. She made a periodista that was tasty.
I gave Paul allspice dram and he made some tiki cocktail that was meant to be shared and it was scrumptious.
Paul and I tied for the win.Josh Beckman
