Elliot: What do you got?
Jeremy: Mark McGwire hits 70.
Kim: That's a little obvious.
Jeremy: Our goal is not to be cunning, is it?
No, it's not. This is probably the easiest mixology ever. Tonight's beverage is perfect for drowning your sorrows if we lose to Syracuse, or tasting oh-so-sweet if we win. And their mascot is one of the ingredients.
1 part vodka (preferably Platinum Vodka, in honor of the platinum jerseys Syracuse is trotting out for tonight's game)
2 parts orange juice
- Pour all ingredients into a highball glass filled with ice. Stir gently. Garnish with a orange slice.
