“Better Off Dead” Drinks

In retrospect, perhaps this wasn’t a great pick for a Valentine’s Day movie, but it was a lot of fun.

Shot: Perfectly Good White Boy, something that’s a real shame to see in the back of a passing garbage truck.

1/2oz each white creme de menthe and cream

Cocktail: Gin (I’m Really Sorry Your Mom Blew Up) Rickey, a mix of another great movie quote and a classic cocktail. We’re so clever.

Fill a highball glass with ice. Add 2oz gin. Squeeze in juice of half a lime and drop spent lime into the glass. Fill with tonic and stir. Float 151 rum.

“Aquaman” Drinks

Jason Momoa. (Hoping that is enough to get millions to flock to the website like they did to the theaters.)

Shot: Red-Headed Dolph, because it was just plain weird seeing Lundgren with that hair.

1/3oz each vodka, peach schnapps, and cranberry juice.

Cocktail: Ocean Master, what A-man’s bro Orm is trying to become in the flick.

2oz silver tequila, 1/2oz each creme de violette and lime juice. Shake over ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

“RoboCop (2014)” Drinks

Our long national nightmare is over as we finish the fourth and final RoboCop movie of the franchise! What? There’s made for TV movies and a cartoon? Don’t care; we’re dunzo.

Shot: RoboCop’s Got a Brand New Suit, because RoboCop gets a brand new suit. It’s black.

3/4oz black sambucca; “float” Campari. (The Campari doesn’t really float- we tried.)

Cocktail: RC Reboot, and since this is a RoboCop reboot, we rebooted a rum and Coke.

Fill a highball glass with ice. 1.5oz dark rum, fill cola, stir.

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” Drinks

Back with another timely movie and our drink tie-ins! We may not be relevant but we are consistent.

Shot: Wasp, our female protagonist pleasantly portrayed by the lovely Evangeline Lilly. Say that three times fast.

2/3oz honey liqueur, 1/3oz white creme de menthe

Cocktail: Pym Particle, the MacGuffin that allows for the resizing of our heroes.

Fill a highball glass with ice. Add 1.5oz Pimm’s, 1/4oz lime juice. Fill with ginger beer and stir.

Come on now, you didn’t really think we weren’t going to take the easy way out and use Pimm’s when there’s a character named Pym in the movie, did you? Check out our thoughts on the flick, drinks and a draft of worst bugs on podcast 136, here:

“From Hell” Drinks

We kind of had to scramble for a movie this week, and Peacock had no input on the drinks, so if you don’t like them #BlameStork.

Shot: Grapes, the delicacy Jack uses multiple times to lure unfortunates to their demise.

1/4oz Dubonnet Rouge, fill red wine

Cocktail: Abberline Absinthe Cocktail, a take on the favorite libation of Johnny Depp’s character.

In a small stemmed glass stir together 1/2tsp sugar, dash Peychaud’s bitters, 1.5oz absinthe, and a splash of water.

If you’re wondering why we covered From Hell in the first place, it was Stork’s pick for winning our year-long games competition on the podcast. Speaking of which, find out our thoughts on the movie, drink, and much more on podcast 135, here:

“Teen Titans Go! To the Movies” Drinks

Surely they wouldn’t make up drinks for a kids movie?

Shot: Starfire, our Tamaranean princess Titans member with the green eyes and propensity to put “the” in front of words.

3/4oz melon liqueur, top with 151 rum. Ignite, blow out, drink.

Cocktail: Titans Go, Robin’s catchphrase to spur the team to action.

Fill a double rocks glass with ice. 3oz gin, several dashes orange bitters. Top with tonic and stir. T-G-O, get it?

“RoboCop 3” Drinks

Three movies down, one to go. We can do this. We can do this. (Help.)

Shot: Flaming RoboCop, because at one point he’s on fire, literally, and yet it doesn’t burn his human face off.

3/4oz silver rum, float 151 rum. Ignite, pretend it’s the film, blow out, and drink.

Cocktail: Delta City, OCP’s continuing plan for what they want Detroit to become. Third time’s the charm?

Fill a highball glass with ice. Add 1/2oz each bourbon, Irish whiskey, and Canadian whisky. Top off with cola and stir.

The drinks may sound rough, but they were a lot smoother than the movie this time. But don’t take my word for it here, take my word for it on podcast 133, here:
