When we were trying to think of the most appropriate cocktail for the Season 2 Finale Sipping Game, our initial thought was to do something that really backed a wallop (variations of the Harvey Wallbanger or the Long Island Ice Tea). After all, who doesn’t want to go out with a bang?
But then we remembered that the show airs on a Tuesday and that it might not be such a good idea for a “school night”.
Then we thought of doing something more celebratory—something with champagne! But that seemed kind of boring, and we had just created the champagne punch last week.
While employing our characteristic “creative conflict resolution” (aka bickering), we got a call from someone who works at Bacardi who said that they had been following our episodic sipping game all season. They suggested their classic mojito.
And that was perfect.
Not only is the fresh mint starting to take over various corners of the garden at Beekman Farm, but, to be realistic, our lives at this point are less about flash and bang and more about finding a way to muddle through somehow.

Take a sip every time you feel sad that this is the last episode of this season of The Fabulous Beekman Boys.
