“Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” Drinks

January’s Patreon movie was the whackadoo “Willy Wonka…” Come with me, and you’ll see, the drink recipes we came up with….

Shot: Chocolate Factory, because hey, it’s right there in the title.

1/2oz each dark creme de cacao & butterscotch schnapps

Cocktail: Violet Beauregarde, after the bubblegum aficionado who takes no shit from Veruca Salt.

In a blender puree 1 pint blueberries and 2oz creme de violette. Add 1.5oz mixture to a champagne flute and fill with champagne. Garnish with a few blueberries on a pick.

As Wonka himself would say, “Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker.” Check out our thoughts on the drinks, movie, and much more here: https://www.patreon.com/besottedgeek

“Star Trek: Picard” Drink

Seeing as how we’re mostly a Star Trek show now, we thought it apropos to come up with a drink for the new series. So here it is, the Picard!

1.5oz Irish honey liqueur, dash lemon bitters. Fill with Earl Grey tea (hot of course).

The Picard is one of our better concoctions, and the perfect accompaniment to the promising new series. For our thoughts on episode “Number One”, check out our podcast here: https://besottedgeek.podbean.com/e/star-trek-picard-11-remembrance/
