Celebrate the Premier of Conan Tonight with the Coco Cocktail

Conan premier at 11PM on TBS

Tonight, November 8th 2010 marks the best thing that ever happened to TBS: Conan O’Brien’s return to late night television at 11pm EST/10pm Central. After his departure from NBC on a $45 Million settlement, Conan announced that he would return to television early last spring.

The infamous Jay Leno-Tonight Show conflict last winter left fans fearful and concerned for Conan’s late night television career. Fast forward almost a year and his fan base, bigger than ever, sits in anticipation for the premier of his new show in just a few short hours.

Of course, it’s not a party without some devious alcoholic concoction to accompany our favorite running gags and Wookie-sized television host. We now give you a simple yet delicious mixed drink to accompany the premier tonight.

The Coco Cocktail

Things you’ll need:
2oz Rum
5oz Orange Soda
Orange Tang
A real orange
Ice
Pint Glass
Highball/Rocks Glass

First: Cut an orange wedge from the Orange and go around the rim of the highball glass.
Second: Pour enough Tang onto a plate that there is a good layer and rub the top of the highball glass into the tang for a moderate coating.
Third: Combine the White Rum and Orange Soda in a pint glass full of Ice and stir until cold.
Fourth: Strain into the highball glass.
Fifth: Garnish orange peels into the shape of Conan’s hair.
Sixth: Take a picture and send it to us: info@drinkphilly.com
Seventh: Watch Conan.

Easy enough that even a certain 6 ft 4 inch red-headed television host could figure out.
