CSC's Drink of the Week: Black and Gold

We've got a new sponsor on board and I think this is one a lot of you guys might really enjoy. Every Friday for the next five weeks, I will be hooking you up with a drink recipe inspired by that weeks Saints game. Feel free to try them out yourself or offer your own Saints-inspired cocktail recipe in the comment section below. 

Since the Saints are taking on the Steelers this week and there is much debate as to which teams colors are truly Black & Gold, I used that as my inspiration for our beverage this week. Plus, I found the perfect concoction right here at About.com.  

Make the jump to learn how to make it. 

It's called a Black & Gold and it's easy to make, requiring only two ingredients, but neither of them are probably liquors you've already got stocked so a trip to the store will most likely be necessary for this one. Blavod is a designer vodka that's black in color and Goldschlager is the cinnamon liquer with those famous gold flakes. Together they take on the cinnamon flavor of the Goldschlager while the drink remains black in color, decorated simply with the gold flakes. 

The Players

  • 2 oz Blavod vodka
  • 1 oz Goldschlager

The Gameplan

  1. Pour the Blavod into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  4. Top with Goldschlager.
  5. Garnish with cinnamon stick.

Sip and enjoy!
