A wobbly Game of Thrones wrap-up got you down? Well, at least Krysten Ritter will be back soon for the third and final season of Jessica Jones. In the Netflix series based on the Marvel Comics character, Ritter plays a superhero-turned-detective who suffers from PTSD. The Hell’s Kitchen resident also drinks a lot of whiskey.
BuzzFeed’s Dan Dalton once took the time to catalogue all of Jones’ tipples in Season 1. Preferring bargain brands to single malts, she knocked back everything from Cutty Sark and Hudson Manhattan Rye to Old Grand-Dad and Four Roses. Her faves: Teacher’s Highland Cream blended Scotch and Windsor Supreme blended Canadian whisky.
In another nod to the show, Forbes calculated that the 13 episodes cost Jones more than $650* in booze. “She’s not trying to save the city or really do anything,” part-time novelist Ritter told Entertainment Weekly. “She’s making money to buy whiskey. She’s a P.I. because it’s a great opportunity for her to use her unorthodox skills and not work with people and work at night.”
Then again, why shouldn’t she imbibe like private dicks Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade? Jessica Jones, who beat #MeToo to the punch, has always done things that guys think they own. Here’s to a third round of that.
