Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! Three Stoli Vodka Cocktails To Slam During Your Summer Wrestling Extravagance This Weekend

by 3 years ago


If you love wrastlin’ as much as we love wrastlin‘, it’s a big weekend for grown men in leotards. On Sunday night SummerSlam rolls into the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. The card is stacked with Vince McMahon leaving plenty of room for his usual box of tricks: Lesnar vs. Orton! Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler. Roman Reigns vs. Rusev. Finn Bálor vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Champion!

While you’re getting your su,,er PPV on, you’ll need something delicious to kick back with. We asked 2016 Tales of the Cocktail Bartender of the Year Jeffrey Morgenthaler — a mixologist and bar manager at Clyde Common and Pepe Le Moko in Portland, Oregon — for some wrestling-themed cocktails. Morgenthaler is co-author of The Bar Book: Elements of Cocktail Technique and knows his way around the back of a bar like Roman Reigns knows how to throw a spear. Here’s what to tip back this weekend.
