When asked to create a specialty cocktail to accompany the Sloshed Socialite: the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' drinking game, as seen on Luxaholics of ExtraTV.com, I couldn't resist.
Seriously, is there a more satisfying giggle than turning the TV tuner to a gaggle of bubble-headed, blingy bimbos - in a second rung city, no less - getting tipsy and talking about how awesome they are? (Go Hotlanta! Get jiggy with your fabulocity.)
Feel inclined to get in on the fun? Whip up this ever-so-tasty tipple and let the snarking begin!
Snarky Southern Belle
designed by The Liquid Muse for ExtraTV.com's Luxaholics
1 ounce peach purée
1 ounce bourbon
Dash peach bitters (angostura bitters is ok)
3 ounces champagne
Splash of apricot brandy or peach liqueur
2 tablespoons sugar on a small plate
1 lemon wedge
Rub the rim of a chilled champagne flute with the wedge of lemon to moisten it, than dip it into the sugar. Set aside the sugar rimmed glass. Pour peach purée, bourbon and bitters into a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake well. Gently strain the liquid into the sugar rimmed glass, then add champagne. Top it off with a splash of apricot brandy or peach liqueur and toast your sexy self.
Peach purée: blend 1/2 cup frozen peaches with 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 ounce of lemon juice.
