Winter Recipes: Alie Ward and Georgia Hardstark’s Licor 43 Cherry Bourbon

Besties, Alie Ward and Georgia Hardstark would grab cocktails after work while Alie was a staff writer for the LA Times (she covered nightlife and events), and Georgia was a part-time blogger and full-time (not-so-happy) receptionist. One day, they concocted a fictitious cocktail called a McNuggetini, and made a how-to video for it. The McNuggetini went viral and their adventure began.

The girls created two seasons of Drinks with Alie & Georgia with the Food Network. There were a total of 24 episodes of oddly creative cocktails, 12-year-old-boy humor and at times, there was fire.

They’re now on the Cooking Channel’s Unique Sweets, have appeared in several TV specials, and launched their new online Web series called Classy Ladies with Alie & Georgia.
