Today, on the eve of my 21st birthday, I am honored to present the ultimate drinking game to complement your three-seasons-long, binge-watching marathon of “Scandal,” available for your convenience on Netflix. Each swig will accompany you through every incredibly uncomfortable, sexual-tension-ridden scene with Olivia and Fitz and every Pope family interaction that makes your own family seem that much more normal. Whether you’re a high-powered D.C. senator with a few skeletons in your closet or an agent in the super-secret B-613 agency, this drinking game has the potential to create a PR crisis that would even challenge Olivia Pope. For extra authenticity, make your drink a tall glass of fine red wine. And if you find yourself quickly catching up to the latest episode, don’t worry: “Scandal” will be back on ABC on Jan. 29.
