Parks and Wrecked: Only One Bed

Parks and Wrecked: Only One Bed

December 2, 2021

The holidays can be very transit heavy: planes, trains, and automobiles. And while that is also a very humorous John Candy and Steve Martin movie (1987), today our fanfic eyes are trained on one in particular. It's 1948 and women aren't allowed to do much without permission from a man in their life. That won't stop Leslie Knope from her mission west, even if it means sharing a bed a bed with one Ben Wyatt in a tiny train compartment.

-

Gim(let) me S'more - Combine 2 oz gin, 1.25 oz White Chocolate Liqueur, 0.5 oz lime juice, and 2 dashes of chocolate bitters in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Pour into a glass rimmed with melted chocolate and graham crackers.
