Getting Lit S1EP12: Pirate Prince

By Gaelen Foley.


“You, fictional character from the land of Fae, are responsible for Brexit.”

“Laying it all out there: sex with reindeer, whipped in the face.”

“Ilana, you can’t give this two stars just because of a cat!”

“They are kind of innocent in their shittiness.”

“Also, don’t feed my anus, please.”

Ilana’s Drink: Opium Den

2 shots cranberry
3/4 tsp Rose Water
1 shot Gin
1 shot Rum
1 shot Aperol
Dash of Bitters
Poppy Seeds for Garnish

Combine all ingredients except poppy seeds in cocktail shaker. Then mix for effect. Add more Rose Water as needs. If too much Rose Water, add some Champagne.
