“Total Recall (1990)” Drinks

July’s movie was the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Total Recall, and we kinda put a spin on some classic drinks to come up with these variations. “Sue me dickhead!” (Quaid’s words, not mine.)


Shot: Triple Nipple, after that one mutant… You know the one….

1/2oz each peppermint schnapps, white sambucca, and Irish cream. Two variations on the classic Slippery Nipple combined into one surprisingly tasty shot. A word to the wise: drink it quick, because it will curdle.

Cocktail: Johnny Cabdriver, in reference to the annoying robotic cabbies that cart Arnie around in the movie.

Fill an Old-Fashioned glass with ice. Add 1.5oz scotch, a dash of bitters, and 3oz orange juice. Stir and ponder if this is basically just a Screwdriver with scotch instead of vodka.
