Heard radio ad say “drag-and-drop” as “dragon drop,” and now I’m inventing dragon-based artisanal cocktails. #hipsternerd

I might have taken this as a challenge. Ingredients: Lemon Ginger Syrup Red Sugar Black Sugar Hot Monkey Pepper Vodka Yazi Ginger Vodka Equipment: Shaker (or if you’re lame like me, an old plum wine bottle works fine too) Glasses Measuring shot bamboo skewer Take the bamboo skewer and dip it into the ginger syrup. Drip drops of syrup on the inside of the cocktail glass. Once you have enough drips for your taste, sprinkle red sugar on the inside of the glass and roll it around so the syrup gets coated in sugar. Dump out excess sugar. Take a slice of lemon and rub it along the rim of the glass without disrupting the red sugar. Dip glass into black sugar. Oooooooo. Totally forget to take a picture of the finished glass. Add ice to your shaker. Add the juice of 1/2 lemon. 2 oz of ginger vodka. 1 oz of hot pepper vodka and a generous helping of ginger syrup. Shake. Carefully strain into the very center of the glass. Make a Bunneh intern taste it. (Bunneh intern did not enjoy it as it was sour and spicy) Make another one and add a sugared lemon wheel. Enjoy.
