Add A Little Spice to Your Cooking by bringing Netflix to the Kitchen

This post brought to you by Netflix. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you guys know about Netflix? Well it is a great way to stream movies, and TV shows into your home. Now you can enjoy your favorite shows and movies anywhere and anytime. You can watch on your iPad in the kitchen, the big screen TV in the living room. You can even watch on your phone while in the grocery store. 
 
I know my kids even watch it on their gaming systems. And I have watched it on my tablet too. And this holiday season, Netflix is making it easier to bring the family together. They will make suggestions for you on what your family may like to watch. You could watch a cool movie or TV show while your turkey is cooking!
 
Netflix has also paired with Chef Curtis Stone to create custom recipes to go along with movies and shows on Netflix. The one I am going to post about is called Red's Orange White Russian. Which is a perfect accompaniment to the show Orange is The New Black.
 
Here is the recipe:
 
Serves: 1
 
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Make-Ahead: This cocktail is best served as soon as it is made. 
 
Ingredients
 
Ice cubes
1/4 cup Kahlúa
2 tablespoons vodka
1 tablespoon Cointreau
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 navel orange 
 
Method
 
1. Fill a rocks glass halfway with ice cubes. Add the Kahlúa, vodka, and Cointreau and 
gently stir to blend.
 
2. Pour the cream over so that it floats on top of the Kahlúa mixture. Using a fine grater, 
grate some orange zest on top. Serve immediately.
 
Here is some pictures I took of the Red's Orange White Russian I made for myself:

I've heard a lot about this show - Orange is the New Black and am really looking forward to checking this out. I also want to have a movie marathon with all the holiday movies. Like the movie The Christmas Story. This is the perfect Thanksgiving and Christmas movie to watch, while your cooking your holiday meal.
 
Another show I want to catch up on is House of Cards. This would be great to watch in the kitchen while doing all the tasks - like peeling potatoes! Or basting the turkey. Maybe watching Planes, Trains and Automobiles. That is actually about trying to get home for Thanksgiving! I always loved that movie. It would be fun to watch it while cooking in the kitchen.
