Yesterday was a hard day at Des Geulasse headquarters. I’ll be perfectly honest here… my sister and I don’t believe in democracy or really any form of leadership. But that being said, even if we did we would still have a hard time accepting Donald Trump as our president. We spent the majority of the day yesterday crying and staring at our Instagram feeds, trying to understand where everything went wrong.
We also refrained from posting. The DIY Hillary Clinton face mask just didn’t seem fitting anymore- no matter how supple it makes our skin.
But today, today my sister and I decided we were in dire need of a comforting treat- something warming and hearty to help soothe the pain. The problem was, all Primrose and I have been wanting to do (and been doing) is drink- which is not going to help us fight when the revolution comes. That’s when we came up with… The Meatini.
The Meatini is the perfect mix of red wine and beef stew- our two favorite winter treats. Combined they are the ultimate comfort cocktail. The wine gives us the alcohol fix we’ve been craving to numb our emotions, while the hearty chunks of meat, carrots and potato in the stew will keep us alive in the coming days.
All you need is to whip up a pot of beef stew, warm some wine in the microwave, combine, and serve in a martini glass. We like a 3:1 (wine: stew) ratio. Need a recipe for beef stew? Just open a new tab on your internet browser and copy this phrase: beef stew recipe. We promise you’ll get tons of results!
And if you’re not upset about the election results at all, don’t worry! You can still enjoy this cocktail as a winter wonderland treat.
