Whether you’re an original fan or a lazy bones who waited until the show hit Netflix to binge indulge (raises hand), pop culture’s most iconic mother-daughter duo holds a special place in many people’s hearts. First-timers to the show may be confused by the rapid-fire dialogue, the obscure, outdated pop-culture references and the ever-perplexing but indefinitely entertaining relationship between Lorelai and Rory. And, oh, the ‘90s fashion.
Alcohol will definitely help that, right? Right. Pour yourself a martini (gin, with an olive) or mix up some Founder’s Day punch for full authenticity.

Finish your drink if…
