Inevitably, in between trying on shoes and sniffing perfume, we also find ourselves turning to our BFF (that's Black Friday Friend), and expressing how wonderful a stiff cocktail would feel right about now. Well, as if the booze gods had been reading our minds, the team at L.A.'s Mixology 101 have crafted a cocktail in honor of November 23. Created by Joe Brooke, the Black Friday Cider consists of Black Grouse blended scotch whiskey, orange blossom honey syrup, a dash of lemon juice, and hot mulled cider. Artisanal cocktail connoisseurs would call it smoky, but we say it's just what the department store doctor ordered!
Whether you're celebrating a successful BF bargain or need to drown your department store sorrows, we suggest you whip one of these bad boys up, stat. You'll be thankful you did!
