Cocktail Moment: Happy Football Season Spurious-But-Delicious Michelada

OK, here goes:
1. Use a pint glass
2. If your doctor will let you, pour coarse salt into a saucer. Then, use a wedge of lime to moisten the rim of the glass. Then roll the moistened outer rim of the glass in the coarse salt. If your doctor won’t let you do that, don’t worry, it will still be great.
3. Into that (salted or unsalted) glass, add:
4. Juice of one lime
5. Two teaspoons of hot sauce – like Cholula
6. One teaspoon of worcestershire sauce
7. One teaspoon of Maggi mystery goo
8. Fill glass with ice
9. Then, add Negra Modelo or another delicious Mexican Beer
10. Grind some black pepper on top
11. Stir a few times with a bar spoon, just to mix up the drink.
12. Garnish with another lime wedge or two.
13. Serve! Cheer for the health of Rob Gronkowski’s forearms!

Gin Martini : Rachel teaches Jimmy Fallon how to make a gin martini.

2 1/4 ounces of Gin
3/4 ounces French Vermouth
Orange bitters
Pour over ice and stir
Serve in martini glass with lemon twist

The Rob Roy

The recipe for a Rob Roy – born at Moe’s Tavern in Springfield! (Maybe?)
Over ice:
2¼ oz blended scotch
¾ oz italian/sweet vermouth (the red kind)
2 dashes orange bitters (Angostura bitters is not a substitute here. Don’t do it.)
Stir and strain into a martini glass.
No garnish necessary.

The Old Fashioned

1 sugar cube - any kind will do, but use raw sugar if you have a choice
Soak the sugar cube in Angostura bitters in the bottom of the glass.
As an extra, somewhat controversial step, add a tiny bit of seltzer water.
Use a muddler to mash up the sugar cube with the bitters and the seltzer into a syrupy mix.
Add ice cube, the bigger the better.
Pour in 2 oz. of bourbon or rye.
Garnish with a lemon twist.

The Mary Pickford

Based on the classic recipe, with proportions modified slightly by John Gertsen, manager atDrink in Boston.
Your ingredients:
1½ oz white rum - good white rum that does not taste like hairspray
1 oz pineapple juice
¼ oz grenadine
¼ oz maraschino liqueur
Shake with teeth-gritting, eye-squinting vigor. The pineapple juice should help form a frothy head, like a beer from keg.
