Do you watch HBO’s “Insecure”? It’s a pretty good show. For the series finale of HBO’s critically acclaimed series “Insecure,” Russian Standard Vodka, a leader in the premium vodka category, has partnered with Gancia, the proud maker of Italy’s first sparkling wine with 170 years of wine-making expertise, to create a special commemorative cocktail.
The collaboration between the two wine and spirits titans was inspired by the imminent end of the highly successful HBO show. The culture-shifting coming-of-age comedy about four millennial Black heroines trying to discover themselves in Los Angeles, while realizing they don’t have it together at all, has become legendary for its explorations of online virality, racial identity, Black nerd culture, love, friendship, and feminism.
To celebrate this groundbreaking show and its season finale on December 26th, the brands have created “The Broken Cookie,” inspired by the freestyle-rap segment in the series debut episode – the show’s most iconic scene. This succulent and tangy mix of Gancia Prosecco Rosé DOC, Russian Standard Original Vodka, zesty lime juice in a glass with a rim of sugar cookie crumbs is a perfect and delicious way to toast the end of the triumphant series.
The “Broken Cookie” Recipe:
- 2.0 oz Gancia Prosecco Rosé D.O.C.
- 0.5 oz Russian Standard Vodka Original
- 0.5 oz Elderflower Liqueur
- 0.5 oz Lime Juice
- Coat the rim with sugar cookie crumbs
