In this episode the Gents tackle a couple of easy cocktails and pass the richness on to you.
Leonard Cohen invented a cocktail back in 1975. He called it the Red Needle. Would you like to try one? You should. It's so easy and so tasty, you'll be shouting Hallelujah!
The Red Needle
2 ounces tequila
Fill a tall glass 1/2 full with crushed ice. Add the tequila and then fill the rest with cranberry cocktail. Garnish with a lemon slice.
It couldn't be easier could it? It's a very good drink too. If you're looking for a chance to get more tequila into you as fast as possible, this is the drink for you.
Actually, the next drink is even easier. It involves getting a bottle of white wine called New Age. It's and Argentinian wine and may be a little on the sweet side for regular drinking but it's ideal for what we're going to do with it. Grab yourself a bottle and let's make a Tincho Cocktail
The Tincho Cocktail
6 ounces New Age white wine
1/4 ounce lime juice
Fill a wine glass with ice. Pour in the wine and squeeze in the lime juice. Drop in the spent lime wedge.
Easy, easy, easy! Refreshing too! This is one of the most popular drinks in Argentina. Why not rent "Evita" and make a night of it?
