Weekend Pairing

“Future Man”
+ a Lightweight Traveler Cocktail

Josh Hutcherson, Eliza Coupe and Derek Wilson in Future Man

Throughout its run, Future Man has been something of an outlier for Hulu's original content. Definitely not a prestige-minded award-getter, but it's fun to watch. Especially in this current climate.

Its third and final season kicks off today, and frankly, it might do us all some good. If you're not familiar, Seth Rogen is a producer (and sometimes director or co-star), and Josh Hutcherson stars along with Eliza Coupe and the incredibly funny Derek Wilson. It follows a janitor by day/gamer by night who is recruited by mysterious visitors to travel through time in order to prevent the extinction of humanity. In a show that's deeply interested in consequences and self-discovery, Den of Geek says this final chapter is bolder, crazier and more cathartic than ever before.

Your Pairing:

Just like the show, this Lightweight Traveler has got a little bit of everything in it. The cocktail, featured on InShaker, mixes aged bourbon with lemon juice and the bracing bite of ginger beer. That's combined with muddled mint and cucumber for a drink that's refreshing and somehow feels a bit, dare I say, healthy.
