Two for the price of one!
Shot: Venom, the titular anti-hero of the movie.
2/3oz dark rum; 1/3oz lime juice
Cocktail: Red Russian, after the main baddie of Punisher season 2, who does in fact get pretty bloodied, hence “red”.
Shake 1oz vodka and 2oz strawberry cream liqueur (you know the one) over ice. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice.
You might want to play around with the proportions of the shot (MORE RUM LESS LIME!), but the cocktail was on point, albeit easy. For our thoughts on the drinks, show, movie, and a draft of anti-heroes, as always check out the podcast, here:
In retrospect, perhaps this wasn’t a great pick for a Valentine’s Day movie, but it was a lot of fun.
Shot: Perfectly Good White Boy, something that’s a real shame to see in the back of a passing garbage truck.
1/2oz each white creme de menthe and cream
Cocktail: Gin (I’m Really Sorry Your Mom Blew Up) Rickey, a mix of another great movie quote and a classic cocktail. We’re so clever.
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add 2oz gin. Squeeze in juice of half a lime and drop spent lime into the glass. Fill with tonic and stir. Float 151 rum.

Jason Momoa. (Hoping that is enough to get millions to flock to the website like they did to the theaters.)
Shot: Red-Headed Dolph, because it was just plain weird seeing Lundgren with that hair.
1/3oz each vodka, peach schnapps, and cranberry juice.
Cocktail: Ocean Master, what A-man’s bro Orm is trying to become in the flick.
2oz silver tequila, 1/2oz each creme de violette and lime juice. Shake over ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

Our long national nightmare is over as we finish the fourth and final RoboCop movie of the franchise! What? There’s made for TV movies and a cartoon? Don’t care; we’re dunzo.
Shot: RoboCop’s Got a Brand New Suit, because RoboCop gets a brand new suit. It’s black.
3/4oz black sambucca; “float” Campari. (The Campari doesn’t really float- we tried.)
Cocktail: RC Reboot, and since this is a RoboCop reboot, we rebooted a rum and Coke.
Fill a highball glass with ice. 1.5oz dark rum, fill cola, stir.
Another franchise down, another two drinks in the books. Check out our thoughts on the movie, drinks, and much more on podcast 137, here:
Back with another timely movie and our drink tie-ins! We may not be relevant but we are consistent.
Shot: Wasp, our female protagonist pleasantly portrayed by the lovely Evangeline Lilly. Say that three times fast.
2/3oz honey liqueur, 1/3oz white creme de menthe
Cocktail: Pym Particle, the MacGuffin that allows for the resizing of our heroes.
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add 1.5oz Pimm’s, 1/4oz lime juice. Fill with ginger beer and stir.
Come on now, you didn’t really think we weren’t going to take the easy way out and use Pimm’s when there’s a character named Pym in the movie, did you? Check out our thoughts on the flick, drinks and a draft of worst bugs on podcast 136, here:
We kind of had to scramble for a movie this week, and Peacock had no input on the drinks, so if you don’t like them #BlameStork.
Shot: Grapes, the delicacy Jack uses multiple times to lure unfortunates to their demise.
1/4oz Dubonnet Rouge, fill red wine
Cocktail: Abberline Absinthe Cocktail, a take on the favorite libation of Johnny Depp’s character.
In a small stemmed glass stir together 1/2tsp sugar, dash Peychaud’s bitters, 1.5oz absinthe, and a splash of water.
If you’re wondering why we covered From Hell in the first place, it was Stork’s pick for winning our year-long games competition on the podcast. Speaking of which, find out our thoughts on the movie, drink, and much more on podcast 135, here:
Surely they wouldn’t make up drinks for a kids movie?
Shot: Starfire, our Tamaranean princess Titans member with the green eyes and propensity to put “the” in front of words.
3/4oz melon liqueur, top with 151 rum. Ignite, blow out, drink.
Cocktail: Titans Go, Robin’s catchphrase to spur the team to action.
Fill a double rocks glass with ice. 3oz gin, several dashes orange bitters. Top with tonic and stir. T-G-O, get it?
