Lift your glass to the new (it’s here! It’s here!) season of Orange Is the New Black! Try a drink named after Red, Vause and more!
Okay, so the new season of Orange Is the New Black was released a day early. Thank you Netflix! Hopefully it didn’t ruin your viewing party plans. I haven’t watched the new season---yes, I want to know what the hell is going to happen to Piper, is Pensatucky really changing, what’s up with Alex Vause and if Vee survived being hit with the van driven by Rosa.
Who’s your favorite character? Take a look at the cocktail recipes below, you might find a drink to go with it. Try Relentless Red, or a cocktail in honor of Rosa—Grandma’s Old Fashioned, There’s a drink for Alex, Suzanne and a very, very orange and oh so tasty spritz too.
