Whether you’re hosting an Emmy watch party tonight or spending a quiet night alone with your TV and Twitter feed, there’s no use in watching TV’s Biggest Night without a drink in your hand. With so many worthy nominees it’s hard to pick a favorite show or star. One of our favorites is HBO’s Veep starring the lovely Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Here’s a VP-themed cocktail you can sip in between Andy Samberg on-liners:
