Weekend Pairing

“BoJack Horseman”
+ a Horse’s Neck

BoJack Horseman season six on Netflix

BoJack Horseman, the brilliant Netflix series, is wrapping up the series in season six, streaming today. As we reconnect with BoJack—the former star of the '90s sitcom Horsin' Around, voiced with coarse sarcasm and melancholy by Will Arnett—he seems to be in a good place. He's now out of rehab and embracing clean living.

With his thick brown mane now dusted a more realistic grey, he's settled into teaching drama at Wesleyan University and connecting with the students. But, it seems, his past catches up with him and he's forced to face some of the terrible things he's done in the past. And it's all handled with the show's signature mix of clever snark, earnest thoughtfulness and, at times, mildly inappropriate over-the-top hilarity.

Your Pairing:

For this pairing, I thought about what BoJack drinks himself. Anyone who's paid attention to all the screen-time “Guten Bourbon” has received will tell you that he's a definite whiskey lover. So what's more fitting than a Horse's Neck? The strangely named tipple is actually an easy-to-make and easy-to-drink cocktail with just two ingredients: ginger ale and bourbon. Of course, InShaker steps it up a bit, swapping in a spicy ginger beer and a few dashes of Angostura bitters, which I'm all for. I'll be sipping on this in between laughs (and maybe a few tears).
