You spend plenty of time in your kitchen, cooking meals and cleaning up the messes. With the holidays coming up, I know I’ll be spending even more time in my kitchen because I love to bake holiday treats. This is also the time of year to sample some great new adult beverages too! Now you can spice up your cooking by bringing Netflix into the kitchen!
Netflix has partnered with celebrity chef Curtis Stone to create some amazing dishes and drinks that are perfect for pairing with your favorite movies and shows. Gather your family together for a marathon of Christmas movies streamed on Netflix while you make gingerbread cookies. Or mix up some fabulous drinks with your sweetie and snuggle up to watch something new, like the Netflix original “Orange is the New Black.”
Speaking of orange, we tested the Curtis Stone recipe for Red’s Orange White Russian. Here’s the recipe so you can try it:
Fill a rocks glass halfway with ice cubes. Add ¼ cup Kahlua, 2 tablespoons of vodka, and 1 tablespoon Cointreau, then gently stir to blend. Pour 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream so that it floats on top of the Kahlua mixture. Using a fine grater, grate some fresh orange zest on top. Serve immediately.
We loved Red’s Orange White Russian! Johnny laughed at the creamy white mustache I got when I tasted mine. He took an extra step and gently stirred the cream and orange zest into the Kahlua mixture for us, making the citrus taste blend throughout the whole drink.
One of his favorite shows to stream is Law and Order and we actually found one on Netflix that we hadn’t seen yet, so armed with our drinks and some holiday cookies, we settled in for our evening of entertainment.
With Netflix, you can stream your favorite shows and movies in the kitchen on your iPad, in the family room on the big screen tv, or even on your smartphone as you stand in the long lines at the grocery store. Be sure to Like Netflix on Facebook, Follow @Netflix, and Follow Netflix on Pinterest to keep up to date on movies and shows. This Thanksgiving we’ll be spending time together as a family, as all the kids come home to visit, and I’m planning to stream my favorite Christmas classics while we catch up on each other’s lives. How will you use Netflix this holiday to stream while you steam? Do you have a favorite Christmas movie or show?
