Hello-o-o! Let's Drink to Mr. Jackpots
Twin Peaks: The Return is better than we deserve. I was really excited for this revival series, and it has exceeded my expectations. And inspired a cocktail.
Not to spoil too much for those who haven't had a chance to watch the series yet, Mr. Jackpots is one of my favorite things in it so far. I chose his cocktail to have a base spirit of silver tequila for the silver coins that spill from the slot machines, and laced it with coffee liqueur for Agent Cooper, Chambord for the fruity Dougie element & dark Ramazzotti for the Black Lodge. The result is a cocktail as dark as the Black Lodge, with all its complexity and danger, but a sweetness, too.
2.5 oz silver tequila
.5 oz Patron XO Cafe
.5 oz Chambord
.5 oz Ramazzotti amaro
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir until cold. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon peel and raspberry fashioned into a sign from the Black Lodge that this one's a winner.
