Cocktail Enthusiast has teamed up with the fine people at Cocktails & Classics, the LOGO TV show that combines good drinks with classic films. Each week, Michael Urie and friends will take a close look at campy, quotable movies like Clue, Showgirls and Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion while drinking CE-provided cocktails.
Today we’ve got the Quick Burning Cigarette, to be enjoyed alongside your pals Romy and Michele. It’s a riff on the classic negroni that pairs gin with bittersweet Aperol and Lillet Blanc, a French wine-based aperitif.
