Twin Peaks Cocktail: The Laura Palmer

The Laura Palmer, by its namesake! Photo by Mike Oeming.

My Twin Peaks Dinner Party post took so long to put together, I’m saving it for Monday morning. However! I did break out some recipes separately as a sneak peek. Here’s the deliciously sinister cocktail we came up with: the Laura Palmer.

Yes, it’s a play on the classic half-iced tea, half-lemonade Arnold Palmer. Yes, it is red as blood–and it’s delicious.

Laura Palmer Cocktail
Makes 10 cups (multiply as needed)

You need:

1 quart iced Earl Grey tea (place two tea bags in a quart jar or similar; pour 4 cups boiling water over and let cool, remove tea bags)
1 quart lemonade (I love the Pioneer Woman’s recipe)
2 cups vodka
1 can cherries in heavy syrup

Combine the iced tea, lemonade, and vodka in a large pitcher. Stir in the syrup from the canned cherries (reserve the fruit for garnish). Chill thoroughly.

Serve up in cocktail glasses (okay we used wine glasses), and garnish with the fruit!
