Yes, I know we usually save the heavy lifting to Fridays but Nick and I believe it's never to early to celebrate a special event - like the third State of Origin.
We salute the brave men in maroon with the closest cocktail I could find:
Maroon Passion (with apologies to Cocktail Times' Purple Passion)
30ml Grape Juice
30ml Grapefruit Juice
1/2 tsp Superfine Sugar
I hear beer is popular to drink while watching these games but I wouldn't know.
