This is a bug hunt, man! A bug hunt! Oops, wrong movie.
Shot: Bug Blood, the goo that gushes from the gunshot and exploded insects.
- 1/2oz gold tequila; float 1/2oz melon liqueur on top
Cocktail: Fizzy Dizzy, named after one of our favorite characters in the movie who unfortunately doesn’t last til the end, and has an annoying obsession with Johnny Rico.
- Fill an Old Fashioned glass with ice. Add 1.5oz Drambuie. Fill with club soda and stir. Garnish with an orange twist.
If you’re afraid to try layering a drink, the Bug Blood is a perfect beginner course, as the tequila & Midori pretty much separate on their own. And not to spoil anything, but this might be the best shot/cocktail combo we’ve ever come up with. Find out our full thoughts on the drinks, movie, and way more on our Starship Troopers episode!
