Lebron’s Salty Tears and The Celebrating Bandwagoner

This is a two-in-one cocktail post! And to be quite honest, we wrote this… probably a week ago because we thought the Dubs would win easily.

And… they didn’t. Oops.

But we’re posting it because let’s just pretend the Dubs won anyway. Also, the drinks are damn tasty and we’re currently drinking our sorrows away. 

One of us is a diehard, bitter basketball fan that remembers Lebron before his recent likeability public-relations turnaround and perhaps takes an unhealthy amount of glee in his loss. I still remember The Decision and #checkmystats, Lebron. #neverforget

The other one is a bandwagoner that is just so excited about the Warriors… he always knew that Stephen Curry and the other members of the team (what were their names again?) were incredible. Ever since he started watching, which was… around the Semifinals.

Lebron’s Salty Tears

This rather straightforward recipe is a salty, intensely bitter, and utterly delicious. It contains Crown Royale (because Lebron crowned himself “King James”), Cynar (arti-CHOKE liqueur), honey, and sea salt.

Unfortunately, I have to eat my words on that one. I guess you’re King after all, Lebron. Cheers.

The Celebrating Bandwagoner

Our other oh-my-god-we-are-totally-going-to-win-this-one drink was inspired by the Bandwagoner among us. We added Domain de Canton because it was a bit golden… and because we have not used it at all since purchasing the bottle. Add champagne on top of it and you get a resulting cocktail that is a gingery effervescent treat.
