A Stranger Drink for "Stranger Things"

By

If you’ve already finished binge watching Stranger Things on Netflix, it’s time to do it again. And this time around, we’ve got the perfect drink to accompany your viewing. (Warning: mild spoilers in the following paragraph).

Our Upside Down Daiquiri is layered with two different drinks: a Blackberry Daiquiri on the bottom to represent the Upside Down World, and a Raspberry Daiquiri on top for our world (and to pay homage to the show’s use of the iconic, 1980s horror movie-esque bright red font in the opening credits). For everyone’s favorite flower-faced monster, we garnished the cocktail with edible flowers. And we even threw in a levitating Eggo waffle. You can go ahead and just place that on the rim—unless you happen to have a telekinetic friend to help like we did.
