#HipHopHappyHour: The Ex-Factor

Things are wild in The ATL this week and WE need to calm down with a cocktail (or two)! After putting Corri on ice, Bow makes a bold move and invites his ex, Angela, to Shaniah’s 21st birthday bash. Corri, who is not one to give up easily, keeps tabs on Bow’s moves. Tension between Da Brat and Drea also escalates, and Waka enters the lion’s den with Tammy. Unwind with this week’s #HipHopHappyHour cocktail, "The Ex-Factor," and watch what goes down!

Recipe: The Ex-Factor

2 Cocktails


  • 1 cucumber
  • 4 two-inch strips lime zest
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 lemon wheels
  • 4 ounces gin
  • Ice
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • Club soda


Using a vegetable peeler, shave four long, thin ribbons from cucumber and set aside. In a cocktail shaker, muddle lime zest, sugar, and two lemon slices. Add gin, lime juice and ice. Cover and shake until chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain into glasses, top each with club soda, and gently stir. Garnish each glass with cucumber ribbons and remaining lemon wheels. Makes 2 servings.
