So, for those of you who are 21 and over, Celebuzz has hooked up with our pals at Sauza Tequila, who in turn put together some Emmy-inspired cocktail recipes for you. Are you a Dexter fan? There’s a “bloody” drink waiting for you. Are you more of a comedy fan who snarts every time you watch 30 Rock? Well, there’s a drink for all of you Liz Lemon fiends out there too.
