Allow me another moment as I shriek my lungs, vocal chords, and tonsils out.
Okay, now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to the point. It’s 25th November and one of the most awaited revivals in the history of revivals is finally hitting our laptop and TV screens today. The Gilmore Girls are coming back! Lorelai and Rory will soon be a part of our daily lives and we can go about ordering takeaway without a care in the world, because Gilmore Girls.
But while you’re binging on all the comfort food, GG ice cream, and blueberry pancakes whilst watching re-runs of the new season, you must have something to wash all that down with. We mean beverages, and we are talking poison. In commemoration of the GG revival, Cosmopolitan has put together a list of cocktails based on which Gilmore Girls character you like the most. Find out which cocktail you are!
Remember all that shimmer, shine, and pink at Rory’s birthday? Didn’t you just love it? Well, your love for pretty stuff and the pink palette makes you the perfect candidate to down ‘The Rory’.
How To Make It: Fill a shaker half with ice, add 1 ounce (~30ml) vodka, 1½ ounces (~45ml) pineapple juice, and ½ ounce (~15ml) grenadine. Shake, then strain into a martini glass, and top with a float of champagne. For added shimmer, dip the rim of the glass in water, followed by edible glitter to match up to Rory’s 21st birthday vibes.
Simple, crisp, yet a bundle of joy, Lorelai’s character is amiable but not one to mess with. This Gilmore Girl is best suited for a heady yet fuss-free olive martini.
How To Make It: Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add 2 ounces (~60ml) Pinnacle Original Vodka and 1 ounce (~30ml) olive juice. Shake and strain into a martini glass and garnish with olives. Serve.
Luke and coffee go hand in hand, for obvious reasons. Also, the guy spells out calm and chill and no non-sense. So, a Luke cocktail has to be something that can be easily put together, is not too overpowering, and – of course – has a lot of coffee. Behold, Luke’s Cold Brew!
How To Make It: In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add ⅔ (~20ml) ounce Baileys Irish Cream, 1 ounce (~30ml) Tanqueray London Dry, 1½ cups cold brew coffee, ⅓ ounce (~10ml) orange juice, and 4 dashes chocolate bitters. Shake and strain into a glass with fresh ice. Finish with a splash of tonic water. Guzzle away!
If Taylor were a magnet, he’d only attract big colossal spotlights towards himself. The guy talks. A lot. And also demands for all eyeballs to look his way. Always. But he is also kind of a softy, so it only makes sense to give the Taylor-lover an OTT Old Fashioned Boozy Float!
How To Make It: In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add ½ ounce (~15ml) Kahlúa, 1 ounce (~30ml) caramel vodka, and ½ ounce (~15ml) Irish creme liqueur. Shake and strain into a glass, and top it off with 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream. Slurp away!
Paris knows what she wants, and if you so much as tap her on the shoulder while she’s busy reaching for the stars, she will kick you in the gut. A mighty personality with a solid IQ, Paris’ cocktail should resonate her rock-steady will and her ‘do or die’ persona. Which is why we give you Miss Patty’s Founders Day Punch!
How To Make It: In a pitcher, pour 6 ounces (~180ml) Malibu Rum, 2 ounces (~60ml) Ninety-Nine Bananas, 2 ounces (~60ml) orange juice, ½ ounces (~15ml) pineapple juice, and 1 ounce (~30ml) grenadine. Chill with a glass on a sunny Sunday!
Jess is the guy you don’t know anything about but would want to know. You know what I mean? He’s a sweetheart but he’d rather just keep stuff to his dark and mysterious self. Oh and, he’s almost always at Luke’s, which is why if Jess is your favourite character, then Meet Me At Luke’s has to be your favourite cocktail!
How To Make It: In a cocktail shaker, dissolve 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar into 2 ounces (60ml) of hot espresso. Add ¾ ounce (~22ml) chocolate bitters and ice cubes, and shake until it’s cold. Strain it into a chilled cocktail glass.
The full of life, vivacious, and bubbly Suki’s character resonates well with a drink that equally – if not more bubbly. Hard at work at the Dragonfly Inn, Suki’s highlight of the day is her girl time with Lorelai, as she sips on the Dragonfly.
How To Make It: In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add 1 ounce Bitter Truth Pink Gin, 1 ounce (30ml) elderflower liqueur, and 1 dash cucumber bitters. Pour the mixture into a glass and stir. Fill up the rest of the glass with tonic water and stir again.
