Not a character, but we’d be amiss if we rounded up Selena Gomez’s many pursuits without including her music career. We’re taking our inspiration here from Selena Gomez & the Scene’s four-times platinum single, “Love You Like a Love Song.”
2 to 6 maraschino cherries
.5 oz. lavender syrup (recipe here)
1.5 oz. bourbon
.5 oz. triple sec
Dash Angostura bitters
In a mixing glass muddle the cherries with lavender syrup and the bitters. Strain the liquid mix into a rocks glass, add the bourbon, triple sec, and ice and stir. Garnish with an orange peel and another maraschino cherry.
