“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.

“Space Jam” Drinks

Shot: Rim Shot, named after the ‘ba-dum, tsssh’ sound a drummer makes after a bad joke. Or just whenever a basketball hits the rim of the hoop. Ba-dum, tsssh.

3/4oz rum, 1/4oz cantaloup juice. Garnish shot glass with cantaloup ball.

Cocktail: Space Jam, and I really can’t remember how we came up with this name. I’m sure it took awhile though.

Place a frozen orange juice ball (they sell molds, and I highly recommend purchasing) in a small rocks glass. Add a dash of orange bitters and fill with vodka.

So, after 20 movie submissions, several polls, and hundreds of votes, we ended up with “Space Jam” as our listeners’ choice to review for episode 100. Us being us, we wound up not reviewing it until episode 102 and came up with two drinks based on basketballs. Give a listen here:
