It’s safe to say that Lorelai and Rory wouldn’t attempt any of these recipes themselves (remember when Max introduced them to the broiler?), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. With these recipes, you can whip up a juicy burger like Luke Danes, mix up a potent Friday night dinner martini like Richard Gilmore and serve Pop-Tart appetizers like Lorelai Gilmore. After all, what’s a movie night —or a Netflix marathon — without tons of junk food?
Ah, the gin martini (a.k.a. the drink that got Lorelai through Friday night dinners). Adjust this recipe to make Lorelai’s beverage of choice by swapping vodka for gin and a twist for an olive.
