“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” Drinks

We got some help with this week’s episode and even a drink name! Great Adequate job, Otter!

Spider-Man Noir, after the morose, Nic Cage-voiced black-and-white Spidey.

3/4oz white sambucca, 1/4oz black sambucca

Orange-Gin, because damn, there’s a lot of origin stories going on. Get it? #BlameOtter

Fill a small rocks glass with ice. Add 3/4oz gin, 1/2oz orange curaçao, dash orange bitters. Top with tonic and stir.

“The Umbrella Academy” Drinks

A power outage on recording day forced our hand, and we had to release a mini on the entertaining Netflix series, The Umbrella Academy. Fortunately we have a battery-powered blender for just such an emergency….

Shot: Hazel, one of the time-traveling killers out to ensure the apocalypse takes place.

1/2oz each hazelnut liqueur and cream

Cocktail: Margarita No. 5, after the neon drink Number 5 sips while pondering how to stop the apocalypse from taking place.

1.5oz each white tequila, melon liqueur, and lime juice. Blend with 1 cup of ice. Serve in a salt-rimmed Margarita glass.

Both drinks were actually pretty good this time, but can’t hold a candle to this amazing show. For thoughts on both, as well as the announcement of our awards show nominees, check out podcast 141, here:

“Punisher” & “Venom” Drinks

Two for the price of one!

Shot: Venom, the titular anti-hero of the movie.

2/3oz dark rum; 1/3oz lime juice

Cocktail: Red Russian, after the main baddie of Punisher season 2, who does in fact get pretty bloodied, hence “red”.

Shake 1oz vodka and 2oz strawberry cream liqueur (you know the one) over ice. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice.

You might want to play around with the proportions of the shot (MORE RUM LESS LIME!), but the cocktail was on point, albeit easy. For our thoughts on the drinks, show, movie, and a draft of anti-heroes, as always check out the podcast, here:

“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.

We’re edging ever closer to capping off our 2018 must-see movies in preparation for our 3rd annual Tully Awards! To see how we enjoyed Aquaman, the drinks, and for a draft of fave sea creatures, check out podcast 138, here:

“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:

“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?

“Netflix Extravaganza 2018” Drinks

We’ve seen a bunch of stuff on Netflix lately. Here are the drinks to prove it.

Shot: Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, aka Daredevil. Season 3 was pretty good- can’t wait for next season!…

3/4oz cinnamon schnapps, 1/4oz Campari. Side note, we just ran out of our second bottle of Campari. I’m betting the majority of people never own one, and if they do, they pass it on to their kids like a family heirloom.

Cocktail: Kim-Joy, the lovable, wacky contestant from The Great British Bake Off series 9 with a penchant for using animal imagery in her bakes.

3oz coconut rum, 1oz white creme de cacao, dash chocolate bitters. Shake over ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Carefully pour 1/4oz creme de violette down the center. Garnish with plastic animals if possible.

Well, there you have it. Our drinks based on two of the four shows we discussed (the others being She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and MST3K: The Gauntlet). Check out podcast 129 for our thoughts on all the shows, the drinks, and much more, here:
