After obsessing for months and months over the books, photos, and movie trailers online, the Everyday Food staff is exiting en masse to see The Hunger Games movie tonight. In honor of District 12 tribute Katniss Everdeen, we’ve created this Capital-worthy concoction: The Girl on Fire. Happy Hunger Games!
The Girl on Fire
1.5 ounces white rum
3 ounces mango juice
1 to 2 teaspoon grenadine
orange zest strip and maraschino cherry, for garnish
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add white rum and mango juice, then add grenadine, allowing it to sink to the bottom of glass. Do not stir; garnish with orange zest and cherry.
Of course, with this drink in hand, there's only one way to toast: May the odds be ever in your favor!
