Drink #038: Love Deluxe,
The Fine Art of Shipping
I know the end before
The story’s been told
It’s not that complicated
But you’re gonna need a bullet proof soul
Bullet Proof Soul – Sade
Shipping is like time, nothing can stop it. Some series don’t have romantic relationships? That cannot stop shipping. Some shows have romantic relationships that are set in stone? That cannot stop shipping. Some shows have asexual characters? That cannot stop shipping.
When people want in their hearts for two characters to hook-up, they become a fearsome force sometimes for good but mostly for evil. For Valentine’s Day we look at how shipping affects fandom and the fans who ship. We even make some confessions about who we ship and which ships we fight against.
And now your helpful bartenders at The Speakeasy present your drink:
1 oz. BarSol Pisco
8-10 red seedless grapes
1 1/2 oz. Riesling
3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 oz. simple syrup
Muddle red seedless grapes in Boston shaker. Add other ingredients and ice to shaker. Shake well and serve in a cocktail glass.
