The drama never ends for the Life After Lockup cast! Clint is hiding a big secret from Tracie, Michael threatens parole to see his new baby being born, and Scott freaks out on Lizzie when she starts making accusations about another woman. However, none of this compares to the shocking news Brittany receives about her best friend, Sascha’s court hearing. You’re going to be saying (and drinking) “Oh, (S)ugar (H)oney (I)ced (T)ea!” too when you see the end to this week’s episode!

Recipe: Oh, (S)ugar (H)oney (I)ced (T)ea!

1 pitcher



In a pitcher, pour boiling water over sugar and honey. Stir until the mixture is dissolved. Add the tea bags, cover, and steep for 5 minutes. Discard the tea bags and stir in the cold water, bourbon, and lemon juice. Chill for 30 minutes to 12 hours. Serve over ice and garnish.

It’s going down this week in the ATL! Drea and her family have to deal with R. Kelly’s child support battle in the public eye after it explodes into chaos. And speaking of Drea, Deb and Brat clash over their relationship with her. Ayana raises suspicions about Brandon’s firefighting career, and Bow and Brandon finally face off! But it doesn’t stop there! The cherry on top, or in this case the salt on the rim, is when ReeMarkable’s performance backfires. Find out what happens during this week’s episode and enjoy a “ReeMarkable-rita” while you watch!

Recipe: ReeMarkable-rita

2 margaritas



Run a lime slice along the rim of your margarita glass. Dip the rim of the glass onto a small plate with coarse salt until coated. Set aside. Mix tequila, Cointreau, and lime juices together in a cocktail shaker. Shake until combined. Taste and add sweetener as desired. Start with a small amount, ¼ to ½ teaspoon. Mix after each addition and taste again. Fill salt rimmed glasses with ice. Pour the margarita mix over ice. Garnish with a lime slice and serve immediately.

A lot of second chances are being given to our Life After Lockup cast. Clint’s mom finally agrees to meet Tracie, Lizzie travels out to California to see Scott, and Lamar is given a second chance at life after being released from prison. Elsewhere, Brittany needs to decide if she wants to give Marcelino a second chance after he flips out, and Michael has to make that same decision when Megan finally shares her secret. Our cast should have our cocktail this week because “When Life Gives You Limoncello,” second chances need to be taken seriously.

Recipe: When Life Gives You Limoncello

1 pitcher



In a large pitcher, whisk together Prosecco and Limoncello. Serve over raspberries. Garnish with mint.

Our Life After Lockup cast are risking everything this week! Tracie lives on the edge during her last hours pf parole, while Brittany is terrified by a warning from her lawyer regarding her ex-husband. Lizzie risks her relationship with her daughter by making a bold move, and Michael spends his first hours of freedom with Megan (not his family). And, when Lamar comes home to a very cold environment, he wonders if everything he built has been ruined. Seems like our cast could use a “Life is But a Cream-sicle” to remind them that with actions, comes consequences!

Recipe: Life is But a Cream-sicle

1 large cocktail



Put your glasses in the freezer 15 minutes before preparing the cocktail. (This fills a large glass; if you have smaller ones, it will equate 2 servings). Put a small scoop of ice cream and a small scoop of sherbet in bottom of glass. Add vodka, orange liqueur, and orange juice on top of ice cream and sherbet. Top each glass with a splash of orange soda. Garnish with whipped cream and sprinkles.

This Friday, WE are feeling “Free As A Bird!” On the season premiere of Life After Lockupmany of our inmates are getting the sweet taste of freedom as Tracie finishes up her final hours of parole and Michael is released from jail (again). Off-parole Brittany is even learning what normalcy is as she begins her new life with husband Marcelino, son Giovanni, and new baby girl. With all this freedom, it looks like the whole cast will need to “toast to life” with a glass of “Free As A Bird,” a fun twist on The Aviation that substitutes creme de violette with creme de cassis, giving it a subtle berry taste.

Recipe: Free As A Bird

1 serving



Combine all ingredients in a shaker over ice; shake and strain into a cocktail glass.
