Listen up gleeks! If you're planning a Glee watch party, mix up some of our character inspired cocktails and mocktails to sip on as you enjoy the singing, dancing and drama. Choose your favorite star and your drink!
Rachel Berry Bellini:
Every drama queen needs her own cocktail. Rachel Berry's Bellini, will make your guests feel like the starts of the party! Just make sure they don't start making outrageous demands! Yes, her overachieving attitude and super-star persona, make her a glee club target sometimes, but this girl can sing! And good thing, too.
Her bubbly personality (and name) fit perfectly for a refreshing, over the top, berry cocktail.
1 bottle of Prosecco or Champagne
1 bottle of St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
1 [int fresh raspberries (or any other berry you like!)
Muddle fresh raspberries and place at the bottom of a chilled champagne flute. Pour Prosecco or Champagne into 3/4 of the glass.
Finish with a splash of St. Germain Elder-Flower liqueur and garnish with a fresh raspberry.
Slow Gin Finn:
We love Finn and gin if he were legally allowed to drink, on the show, we're sure he would love this drink too! This drink is great for all the jocks at your party. That drumming, that smile, that face! But you have to admit, Finn can be a little late to the party sometimes.
In honor of our favorite male lead, (yes favorite, um who saved the day at Sectionals?) serve up a "slow" twist on a classic cocktail, the sloe gin fizz.
2 ounces sloe gin
1/2 ounces lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar
Club soda or seltzer water
Combine sloe gin, lemon juice and simple syrup and shake well in a chilled shaker.
Strain into a chilled Collins glass and fizz to an inch or so from the top. Splash club soda or seltzer water in toward the end so that you get the fizz!
Mama Quinn Mocktail:
If you or your guests want a refreshing beverage without the alcohol-sip on this mocktail-you don't have to be an expecting cheerleader to enjoy this one! Since Quinn went and cheated on Finn with Puck, and found herself really pregnant, unlike Schuester's lying wife Terri, she doesn't get a cocktail. She gets a mocktail.
Whip up a fancy mocktail in honor of our favorite former Cheerios captain.
1 ounce lemonade
1 ounce cranberry juice
1 lemon and two raspberries to garnish
Combine lemonade and cranberry juice in a chilled shaker with ice, and shake well. Pour into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lemon.
Santana's Sassy Sangria:
If Santana were a drink she would definitely be sangria! The bold color matches her bold personality and all of the fruity pungent flavors mimic her personality perfectly! This girl doesn't mess around. And with Brittany at her side these two are double the trouble. Remember that Madonna episode... hey now.
Serve up some sassy sangria in honor of our two favorite Sue Sylvester spies turned glee clubbers. (Feel free to halve this recipe if your crowd is on the smaller side.)
1 bottle of Cabernet
1 bottle of Riesling
1/2 Cup simple syrup
1 large can of pinneapple diced, with juices
1 apple diced
1 pear diced
2 peaches diced
1 orange sliced
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour before guests arrive.
Mercedes Peach Mango Margarita:
Want to sing like Mercedes? Well we can't help you with that, but drink this delightful, peach, mango margarita and you will definitely be singing a happy tune! Mercedes is a glee club force to be reckoned with, and if you find yourself on her bad side... she'll probbaly bust the windows out of your car. This girl does more than wail on those high notes at the end of every song.
She's a glee club power player, and you will definitely want some of what she's bringing.
1 ounce tequila
1 ounce triple sec
1 lime (juice only)
1 ounce peach juice
1 mango peeled and diced
1 sliced orange for garnish
In a blender combine all ingredients with ice. Serve in a salt-rimmed margarita glass and garnish with a slice of orange.
