Monica and Richard Are Friends
In Season 3, Episode 13, TOW Monica and Richard Are Friends, Monica runs into Richard at the video store and the two of them start hanging out again. Monica’s clearly re-smitten, but insists that they can remain platonic. That doesn’t go so well, but luckily, our cocktail does!
Heather found a recipe for a “Friends with Benefits” cocktail, and we put our spin on it by adding rose water (to echo the roses that Richard and Monica toss across their respective beds) and using Lillet Rose in lieu of Cocchi Americano.
MONICA AND RICHARD ARE FRIENDS
1 cup ginger beer
½ cup fresh lemon juice
5 ounces rose
5 ounces Lillet rose
1 tsp rose water
1 tsp ginger bitters
Lemon slices and rose petals for garnish/decor
Combine all of the ingredients (aside from the garnishes) in a large container and mix well. Divide among two ice-filled glasses. Garnish with the lemon slices and rose petals (make sure you use edible rose petals!)
