“THE OFFICE/THE MICHAEL SCOTT and SKINNY MOJITO” – The crisp and delightful Mojito perfectly embodies the refreshing and cheery spirit of Michael Scott, the resident Britney of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. As a drink named after the man with a plan for every mood and occasion (but in a much more real sense, one that requires no special occasion to enjoy), the Skinny Mojito is the perfect companion for your next Office re-run!

HALF A LIME CUT INTO WEDGES

“The SUITS and JAPANESE HIGHBALL” – As the smart, stylish, and sophisticated drink of the year, the Japanese Highball is a whisky cocktail that would be a perfect fit in the high-stakes legal World of Suits. Made with the unique new DEWAR’s Japanese Smooth Scotch whisky, the drink is a classy creation worthy of finding a place on Harvey Specter’s bar shelf. With a smooth texture that accentuates the flavors, making this your new signature whisky cocktail is definitely what Harvey would do.

“FRIENDS and WINTER PUNCH” – As an evergreen sitcom, Friends is the perfect blend of characters and personalities to make us all fall in love with the beauty of everyday joys and adventures. From the sass of Rachel to the carefree calm of Joey, every character brings a unique vibe to the show to make it special – a quality that is also alive in the fruity flavors of the Asian Winter Punch cocktail, made by blending the offbeat combination of lemongrass, ginger ale and cinnamon into a crowd pleasing cocktail that will make you go “Oh. My. God!”.

“MODERN FAMILY” and “FROZEN STRAWBERRY DAIQUIRI” – As perhaps the most iconic sitcom of the 2010s, Modern Family is a modern classic (pun unintended). And the reason we can’t get enough of the heartwarming characters of the Dunphy and Pritchett families is because they tend to bring out the best in each other, even in the toughest moments. This bond, for us, is represented best in the chilled Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri. With the tartness of the strawberry accentuating the sweeter flavor of the rum, the cocktail comes together in a medley of flavors that will definitely sweeten your next rewatch of the show. A drink with a story worthy of adding to your own list of Phil’s-osophy.
