01/20/2016 at 04:40 PM ET


Khloé Kardashian‘s latest endeavor has us anxiously awaiting cocktail time.

On Wednesday night’s premiere of her new talk show Kocktails with Khloéthe reality star brings on chef Sharone Hakman (a former contestant on Masterchef) to whip up a special, erm, kocktail.

In a sneak peek of the show (above), Hakman describes what he calls ‘Smoky Eyes,’ a bittersweet beverage that’s a made with mezcal, tequila, lime juice, and a homemade rosemary-infused simple syrup. He garnishes the drink with a grapefruit twist and “burnt” rosemary, which may be a little fancy for the at-home mixologist — but if you’re not scared of playing with fire, give it a shot.

Khloé’s younger sister Kendall Jenner (who pranks their other sister Kim in the same episode by faking a pregnancy) also makes an appearance in the clip, though the 20-year-old makes it clear she’s “not allowed” to try the cocktail — so Hakman promises to whip her up a special drink of her own.

Other guests on the show include Aisha Tyler, Kym Whitley, and former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville. Get Chef Hakman’s full recipe below so you can drink like a Kardashian while you watch the show, which airs on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FYI.

Oh goody another artical about this family, I can’t wait to read the next one about how they put in their pants, oh and what toilet paper they prefer and perhaps we can get on all their shoe sizes.

Does anyone else think that maybe the Kardashians OWN People magazine??? At ANY given time, there are AT LEAST 4 articles re this ridiculous, waste of space family who make me laugh…….ridiculous!
Stop making stupid people famous !!! URGHHH!!! This is why I no longer BUY People — waste of paper and ink…….

I pour shots of moonshine in my eyeballs to rid the image of this f-tard family.
Stop promoting this low class, dumbing down society, grifter family.

This show is a complete flop and soooo trashy. I turned it off in the first ten minutes and actually deleted the entire show from my DVR. I shouldn’t be surprised that it was trash…..especially when the first “game” they played was who they would BANG. These girls need some morals and a life doing for others….not what they would do TO others. I pray my daughter NEVER learns who this family is!! Shameful and a disgrace.

Litterly a DISGRACE to society. If I was running for president, first thing I would do is get these whores off of reality TV. I’D get youth & innocence back in Hollywood!
