CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAYS. DRUNK.
Occasionally, Moiself has been known to tip back a glass of Potato juice.
The Holidays are upon us, and you know what that means.
No, not fights over Mommy issues.
No, not a couch full of fat farting uncles with their pants open from having gorged on dark meats and sweet potato pie.
No, Mon cheri. No.
HOLIDAYS ARE FOR DRINKING!
Well. Master Mixologist Nick Mautone has created a simply brilliant way to celebrate the Holidays with two of my fave ingredients: Grey Goose Vodka & Sweet Potatoes!
So. Let Mom fight with Aunt Carol and pretend not to notice that Uncle Joe is telling that same story about a hooker in Singapore after some war.
Scoot past Grandma and grab some handy Holiday ingredients and make yourself (and your cool stoner cousin Sarah who just got out of rehab. Again.) a nice tumbler of Nick Mautone’s “Grey Goose L'Orange Sweet Indulgence”.

Grey Goose L'Orange Sweet Indulgence 1 ½ parts Grey Goose L'Orange Flavored Vodka ½ part Vanilla Brandy or Liqueur 1 part lime juice ¼ part maple or simple syrup ¼ part molasses 1 tbsp roasted or mashed sweet potato
In the bottom of a cocktail shaker, place the syrup, molasses and sweet potato. Muddle gently. Add the ice and the remaining ingredients. Shake vigorously. Double-strain into a tumbler and garnish.
