Thirsty Thursday: Set the House on Fire

This Thirsty Thursday is going to be set ablaze! On Braxton Family Values, Toni gets shocked by a special surprise from her (ex?) boo while performing on stage! Meanwhile, the sisters take it upon themselves to interrogate Tamar’s new man. Will he be Braxton Family-approved? Over on Hustle and Soul, Cola is back at the Pink Teacup, but not everyone is happy about her return. This is the perfect week to “Set the House on Fire” during happy hour! Today’s cocktail is a twist on lime and cranberry cocktail, featuring a garnish that will burn the house down!

  • 2 oz scotch or whiskey
  • ¾ oz lime juice
  • ½ simple syrup
