Who knew? Make an unassuming cocktail how-to for some of the most vile drinks known in the history of the world while keeping a smart, cool and sophisticated vibe and you might just gain some notoriety.

That's what's happening to two Los Angeles-based friends, Alie Ward and Georgia Hardstark, who were profiled in the New York Times today, are fielding questions from Playboy, having taste tests with Hoda Kotb of "Today" and may soon be featured in a Good Food video by KCRW's Evan Kleiman.

So far, they've produced three videos--the above for the McNuggetini--and below are the Ham Daiquiri and The Bloody Bacon & Cheese. Next up for them? We recommend a swanky downtown bar with these two as the chief mixologists.
