“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:

Christmas Spectacular 2018 Drinks

This year we reviewed both White Christmas and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale for our holiday episode, and decided to make a drink for each of them.

Shot: Yule Log, the magical(?) hunk of wood witches burn during winter solstice to ward off evil spirits.

1/2oz each dark creme de cacao and Irish cream

Cocktail: White Christmas, one of the greatest Christmas songs, one of the greatest Christmas movies, and what you hope for each year unless you have to drive.

1oz each white creme de menthe, white creme de cacao, and cream. Shake over ice and strain into a champagne glass. Garnish with red and green sprinkles.
