“Dead Alive” Drinks

One of the goriest movies ever made; will our drinks live up to it?

Shot: Lionel’s Custard, after the infamous scene where Mum inadvertently adds a little extra flavor to the dessert.

1oz eggnog, dash Peychaud’s bitters

Cocktail: Paquita Banana Daiquiri, named after the movie’s heroine.

In a blender combine 3oz light rum, 1/2oz brandy, 1/2 banana, 1 kiwi, 1 cup ice. Blend until smooth.

Why the Queen? Why not? (Actually I think there was a picture of her in the movie.) Tune into podcast 123 for our thoughts on the drinks and movie, and a draft of our favorite movie couples, found here:

“The Muppets” Drinks

The penultimate Muppet movie found us resorting to another main character for a drink, but seeing as how it’s almost over, it felt right.

Shot: Tex Richman, the big bad of the movie, played expertly by Chris Cooper.

2/3oz black sambucca, 1/3oz Goldschlager

Cocktail: Kermit– ’nuff said.

3oz vodka, 1/2oz each melon liqueur and lime juice. Shake over ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

All the Horror 2018 Drink

Just a spur of the moment drink whipped up to go along with an All the Horror episode we did.

Cocktail: All the Horror– original, ain’t it?

3oz gin, 1.5oz blood orange juice, dash Peychaud’s bitters. Shake over ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Terrifying jack-o’-lantern not included.

“Bad Taste” Drinks

The first of two Peter Jackson movies we’ll be doing this month finds our drinks living up to the title. Well, the shot anyways…

Shot: Chuck, as in up-chuck, not a guy’s name.

1/3oz each melon liqueur, Irish cream, and lime juice. Perhaps more rough than the scene that inspired it.

Cocktail: The Boys, that ragtag team of Kiwi misfits sent in to take care of the alien menace terrorizing a small New Zealand village.

3/4oz each bourbon, scotch, whiskey, dark rum, orange curaçao, simple syrup, and lemon juice. Serve in a highball glass filled with ice and top off with cola. Kind of an Auckland Iced Tea if you will.

Why The Beatles album background? You’ll just have to watch the movie, or better yet, listen to podcast 121, here:

“Muppets from Space” Drinks

We celebrate horror month by watching this alien invasion movie. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Shot: Door in a Jar, after one of Q, er, Bunson’s inventions that- you guessed it- creates a doorway upon emptying the contents of the jar.

2/3oz melon liqueur, 1/3oz limoncello

Cocktail: Gonzo, the main star of the flick. Weirdo-whatever extraordinaire.

In a blender combine 1.5oz light rum, 1/2oz each blue curaçao and cream of coconut, 3oz pineapple juice, and 1 cup of ice. Blend until smooth and serve in a glass with a bunch of weird stirs, umbrellas, plastic monkeys, etc.
