Hanukkah Menoreo Martini
In Season 3, Episode 10, TOW Rachel Quits, Ross becomes an honorary Brown Bird when he accidentally takes an actual Brown Bird out of commission with his panache-filled backhand. To help her earn a prize trip to Space Camp, Ross starts selling Brown Bird cookies on her behalf.
The Brown Birds are an obvious take on the Girl Scouts (namely, Brownies), so we decided our signature beverage should do the same — take a Girl Scout-cookie inspired cocktail recipe and give it a Brown Bird spin.
We liked Ross’s description of the Hanukkah Menoreos having coconut — the reference to chocolate (Oreo) and coconut made us think of Samoa cookies. So we took a Samoa cocktail recipe and gave it a touch of Handbag Marinara!
HANUKKAH MENOREO MARTINI
2 ounces coconut milk (canned)
3 ounces toasted coconut rum
1 ounce Godiva Dark
Coconut chips (see Notes)
Combine the coconut milk and alcohol in a shaker over ice and shake to chill. Strain into a martini glass. Top with coconut chips.
Notes: You could also crush up the coconut chips and use them to rim the martini glass!
