The sixth season of Real Housewives of New York City premieres on March 11 on Bravo at 9 pm ET. And if, like the ladies, you can't make it through the hour without at least one alcoholic beverage, stir up these custom cocktails created for Us Weekly.
Cheers to another season of liquor-fueled drama!
Sweet and Tart Lemon Drop
A little bit sweet and a little bit tart -- this tangy drink perfectly sums up each of the cast members.
1 1/2 parts of Skinnygirl™ Meyer Lemon Vodka
Splash of DeKuyper Triple Sec
Splash of diet lemon-lime soda
Cherry or lemon slice for garnish
Preparation: Mix ingredients in a glass with ice. Top with diet lemon-lime soda. Garnish with cherries and a lemon.
Just like this drink's namesake, it's stronger than it seems.
1 1/2 parts Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila
3 parts freshly squeezed orange juice
1 dash grenadine
Preparation: In a shaker filled with ice combine tequila, orange juice and shake well to chill. Strain into a chilled champagne flute. Pour in the grenadine gently along the side of the glass. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lime to top it off. Garnish with orange slice.
Sorry, Ramona, there's no Pinot in this refreshing cocktail, but, as seen in the premiere, the double shot of tequila just may be enough to mend fences with Aviva Drescher.
2 parts Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila
4 parts club soda
1/2 parts fresh lime juice
1/4 bunch of fresh mint
1/4 bunch of fresh Basil
1 tbsp. sugar
Preparation: In a small glass, muddle together mint leaves, fresh basil, sugar and lime juice until they start to melt together (if you don’t have a muddle, use a spoon). Add tequila and top off with club soda. Garnish with an extra sprig of mint and lime wedge.
