Ah the movie marathon weekends. In your dinosaur pjs, fire going, lots of yummy leftovers in the fridge, no place to be, and an entire weekend ahead of you. #Heaven We kick off our movie marathon weekend with Home Alone. Sweet little 8 year old Macaulay Culkin thwarts the bad guys after being left at home alone by mistake as his family gets on an airplane for France. If there is anything more Gen X than an 8 year old fending for themselves and winning, I am not sure what it is.
Our cocktail paired with this movie is The Filthy Animal. This Tiki based cocktail is fun in a glass. Our Spiced Cherry Vanilla syrup adds the complexity and spices and the fresh fruit juices make it merry and bright.
1.5 oz rum
2 oz pineapple juice
¾ oz lime juice
½ oz cherry vanilla syrup
Add all ingredients to a shaker of ice. Shake until very cold. Strain into your favorite tiki glass or an old fashioned glass of ice. Garnish with a cherry.
