Pat Collins is informed that a new drink has been named after him -- the Snowy Pat Collins.
Move over Tom Collins. Heck, move over Emmy awards. What greater honor is there than having a drink named after you?
A Snowy Pat Collins is:
1 oz Peppermint Schnapps
1 oz Baileys Irish Cream
1/2 oz Dark Creme de Cacao
5 oz Hot Chocolate
1 oz Whipped Cream
a few marshmallows
1 peppermint stir stick
for those looking for an adventure:
vodka or rum
a drop of sex panther
stir with a razor blade
As Collins was trending on Twitter for his reporting Wednesday evening during the winter storm -- with thermometer and trusty measuring stick, the tools of his trade, in hand -- he was told about the cocktail.
NBC Washington viewers had already delivered a box of coffee and a 15-inch Italian hoagie from Jersey Mike's to Collins. Good looking out, guys.
