Another X-Files inspired cocktail! And this time it is Agent Scully who gets the spotlight!
So I was compiling a list of X-Files recipe and cocktail ideas, and I realized…. WHAT?! Agent Dana Scully didn’t make the list?!?!! NOT COOL!!!
I somehow overlooked our leading lady in my geeky cocktail line-up! Maybe I was too focused on Agent Mulder?? *wink wink nudge nudge* But hey! I will remedy that forthwith! (I like that word.. forthwith.)
So anyway! More on Agent Scully… Enter the sage wisdom of Wikipedia:
FBI Special Agent Dana Scully is a fictional character in the Fox science fiction-supernatural television series The X-Files, played by Gillian Anderson. Scully is an FBI agent and a medical doctor (M.D.), partnered with fellow Special Agent Fox Mulder for the first seven, and the tenth, seasons, and with John Doggett in the eighth and ninth seasons. In the television series, they work out of a cramped basement office at FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C. to investigate unsolved cases labeled “X-Files”.
TADA!!!! There you have it. So on with the themed boozy drinks!!!!
The Agent Scully Cocktail is a twist on a classic Pink Mojito, but with a little more lemon, and a little more booze! I picked this cocktail because… well, it is red, bright, spunky and to the point.. much like Agent Scully!!
How to Make:
6 mint leaves
1 tsp lemon juice
2 teaspoons simple syrup
1.5 ounces white rum
.5 ounce of raspberry liqueur
Top off with cranberry juice
Mint for garnish
Put the mint, lemon juice, raspberries and simple syrup in a highball glass and muddle. Fill the glass to the rim with crushed ice. Add the rum and cranberry juice, then garnish with a mint sprig. Enjoy!
