Relationships, body politics, identity: these are the elements explored by Lucas Crawford in his Robert Kroetsch Award-winning, debut collection published by Invisible Publishing. Sideshow Concessions is the unofficial story of someone who is both a bearded lady and the fattest man in the world. I’ve paired the suite of the Bearded Lady with an eponymously named cocktail that can be made with either whiskey or gin, depending how you swing.

What You Need:

1 oz. whiskey (some versions use gin instead)
2 oz. pink lemonade or pink grapefruit juice
½ tsp egg white
½ oz. grenadine syrup
Orange slice and brown sugar for garnish 

 

What to Do:

Prepare your glass by garnishing the rim with orange slice and brown sugar. Next, add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for 10 to 15 seconds. Strain the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass. Add a small curl of orange peel and enjoy.
