2020 was a wild year that brought us a handful of things, including the COVID-19 Pandemic and 'Tiger King' on Netflix. The Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport, CT, reimagined their 'Wild Wine, Beer & Food Safari' event that normally takes place on the zoo grounds, and made a take-home kit featuring a selection of drinks including Fishers Island Lemonade. Join us in getting wild by mixing up this FIL cocktail. Warning: you'll like it more than you dislike Carole Baskin.
6oz FIL (half can)
0.5oz Triple Sec
2oz Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
Splash of Club Soda
Chili Sugar (mix 1 tbsp sugar with 1/4 tsp chili powder)
Clementine or Orange Wedges
Use orange juice to wet the edge of the glass and dip into chili sugar. Fill glass with ice.
Combine all spirits and juice in a shaker with ice. Shake well.
Strain into glass and top with a splash of club soda.
Make tiger ears garnish with orange wedges and a toothpick.
