Only Murders in the Building

Salt the rim of a tall glass. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add all ingredients except the toppings. Shake for 20 seconds. Strain into glass. Garnish. A classic cocktail that is sophisticated and elegant, perfect for the Succession set. Sip on this drink and raise a toast to the Roy family (or not!).


A Classic Yacht Life Vodka Martini

Ted Lasso

Tea Time with the Boss

Ted Lasso has a positive attitude about most things – except tea. Perhaps this cocktail would change his mind and add a little excitement to ‘biscuits with the boss’.

  • 2 oz. Yacht Life Vodka
  • 6 oz. Sweet Tea
  • Ice
  • Sprig of Mint

Muddle mint leaves in the bottom of a glass and fill with ice. Add vodka and sweet tea. Garnish with more mint leaves and serve.
