Blingy Best Budtini
In TOW the Prom Video, Joey decides to repay Chandler for all the times he paid the rent, phone bill, and for more slices of pizza than he can remember.
So he gives him a check for $812 and … a bracelet.
Yes, Chandler is so wearing that bracelet!
Unfortunately, he promptly loses the bracelet, drops $400 to buy a replacement bracelet, finds the old bracelet, and covers his tracks by claiming that he bought the second one for Joey.
They’re bracelet buddies!
The bracelet on our cocktail comes in the form of a gold-speckled rim on our martini glass, thanks to sugar sprinkles (and tiny, edible gold stars). We add even more gold in the form of Goldschlager. That, combined with ginger syrup, adds a spicy punch worthy of Joey’s firey temper before Chandler makes amends.
BLINGY BEST BUDTINI
2 ounces vodka
1/2 - 1 ounce Goldschlager or other cinnamon liqueur
1 - 1 1/2 ounces pineapple juice (or orange juice)
1/2 ounce ginger syrup
Pour gold sprinkles into a shallow dish wide enough to fit the rim of your martini glass. Coat the glass rim with ginger syrup, then press into the sprinkles to form a sparkly “bracelet”!
Combine the vodka, Goldschlager, juice, and syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into your martini glass. Enjoy!
The Goldschlager’s cinnamon flavor is very strong! We recommend starting with 1/2 an ounce, then adding more if you want more cinnamon flavor. You can also add more juice to balance it out.
You can either buy ginger syrup (it definitely has a stronger punch) or make your own by putting some minced fresh ginger in a small dish with some simple syrup. The longer you leave it, the stronger it will be.
