Monica and Rachel Had Syrup

Monica and Rachel Had Syrup

In Season 3, Episode 1, Chandler and Janice are dating again, and this time he’s all in! He’s in love and she’s making him pancakes! She prances into the room singing,

“Monica and Rachel had syrup … now I can get my man to cheer up!”

There’s also a stack of pancakes already made on the counter. So while Chandler might be ready for a hearty breakfast before his long day of statistical analysis and data reconfiguration, we figured we’d try to recreate this feeling in cocktail form.

There are loads of pancake-themed cocktails online. So we found three of them and tried compiling them into one pancakes-and-syrup cocktail. Then we got caught up in Life and didn’t have a chance to regroup about what the final concoction would be. So of course we did some experimenting and reported back come recording time! Here’s what we came up with:
