‘Stranger Things 2’ just dropped on Netflix. And guess what? Tomorrow is Halloween! It’s alllllllll happening!
We’re betting a lot of ‘Stranger Things 2‘ is going to be watched paired with Gatorade on Wednesday morning, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stay on-theme all Halloween night. Thanks to some crafty mixologists you too can infuse your ‘Stranger Things 2’ drinking with a good dose of booze, Eggos, and… more booze.
That’s not a bad way to spend a Halloween that falls on a weekday, if you ask us.
Strange Things by Brandon Kemp for Patron Tequila
The foundation of this cocktail is Patrón’s earthy, small-batch, bourbon barrel-aged reposado tequila. The ingredient that lends it true Stranger-Things-iness is mezcal, which is kind of like tequila’s smokier friend from the Upside Down. Crafted by Atlanta-based bartender Brandon Kemp, Strange Things is finished with a cracked black pepper garnish, which should give it an extra kick to keep you on your toes.
