Probably the best shot & cocktail combo we’ve ever made, and definitely better than the movie. Check out our thoughts on the drinks and movie on podcast #101:

“Avengers: Infinity War” Drinks

Shot: Infinity Stones, named for the six powerful jewels of the universe that the big bad is trying to get and the good guys are trying to protect.

Fill 6 shot glasses each with 1/2oz vodka. Add 1/2oz of each of the following liquors to one of each shot glass, creating the six colors of the infinity stones: creme de violette; blue curaçao; pomegranate liqueur; orange liqueur; Midori; Galliano.

Cocktail: Thanos, aka the Mad Titan, named for the big bad of the movie. The guy after the Infinity Stones. See above.

Fill a glass with cracked ice. Add 2oz vodka, 1oz creme de violette, 1/2oz lemon juice. Stir.

This was a really fun one to make, and while some of the shots weren’t extremely palatable, the cocktail actually turned out pretty good. Give a listen to podcast #100 to hear our reactions to the drinks and the movie:

“Batman Forever” Drinks

Shot: Two-Face, inspired by Tommy Lee Jones’ subtle, nuanced performance… or just the colors his gang wears. You be the judge.

1 shot glass black sambuca, 1 shot glass Campari. Flip a coin to see who drinks what.

Cocktail: MR. E, named for the riddle Bruce and Alfred solve, pointing to mystery, Mr. E. Nigma, Edward Nigma, Riddler, yada, yada, yada.

1/2oz Midori, 3oz light rum, 1/2oz elderflower liqueur (see- MR E!), 1oz lime juice. Serve in a double rocks glass filled with crushed ice, garnish with a lime wedge.

Batman Forever was a rough one kids, but the drinks were fun and not too bad either (besides the straight Campari one of us had to drink). Wish us luck on Batman and Robin; after that it’s smooth sailing. Check out all our thoughts on podcast #99:

“A Quiet Place” Drinks

Shot: Loud Noises, something you definitely want to avoid in the world of A Quiet Place. And the movie theater, especially during this movie. Look, honestly, everyone could really just take it down a notch in general, okay?

1/2oz bourbon, 1/2oz cola, dash Pop Rocks

Cocktail: Bloody Nail, a big, fat plot point just sticking up waiting for poor Emily Blunt to step on. Spoilers.

2oz scotch, 1/2oz Drambuie, 1/2oz blood orange juice, dash Peychaud’s bitters, maraschino cherry garnish

Moment of silence for Mikey, from the Life cereal commercials of our youth, who died tragically from ingesting Pop Rocks and Coke. But really didn’t. Anyways, if you want to hear our thoughts on the drinks, as always give a listen to the podcast, #98:
