Movie Cocktails

June 25, 2015
Movie Cocktails

Our lovely Amanda and Heather are doing a little cross-promo for the return of our Monday night Cocktail Cinema, and they’re putting some delicious brain-thought into it.

I’m coming in for this Thursday night myself, cuz a.) they sound delicious, and b.) we have some killer A/C and I’m becoming a sissy when it comes to the heat at night. Plus, I miss you all like the flowers miss the rain.

For example:
• a Damiana cocktail inspired by Spinal Tap’s “Sex Farm”
• a sazarac for the Blues Brother song “New Orleans”
• an elevated bluegrass cocktail for the O Brother Where Art Thou Soggy Bottom Boys band
• an elevated sparkling New Zealand cocktail with passion fruit, grand marnier, and persecco for Flight of the Conchord’s song “Foux di Fafa”
• The Jeffery, inspired by Aldous Snow in Get Him To The Greek with kiwi, mint, lime, and tequila.

I also bet, without even checking with H and A, that they can come up with other drinks based on your movie favorites. They may be mad at me for that. I apologize in advance.

See you Thursday night, and hugs.

Super Dark and Totally Evil Cocktails

Halloween Cocktails Pt. 1

Tonight Morgan (aka DJ Kingblind) is playing Goth hits as part of his Halloween series. What that means: Spooky shoe-staring, black- haired, easily-sunburned, vitamin-deficient ghouls playing legendery music that will make you want to drink even more good booze because staring at your shoes is f**king boring.

And your hosts Jordan and Rachel have some cocktails all lined up…

Bela Lugosi’s Undead
Bourbon, Ginger Snap, Rioja, Lemon, Mole

Black Heart
Black Strap Rum, Cynar, Crème de Mure, Lime, Ginger Beer.

And More
This isn’t a cocktail, it’s must me saying “and more cocktails.” Sorry for any confusion.

Tonight, 6ish.

Vintage Cocktails

Vintage Cocktails

I pulled a fast one on some super nice folks who think I was a good candidate to bar cater a party thingy where I wear a tie and make drinks from the 1920s and not spill purple stuff on myself and others.

In honor of what I’m SURE will be a triumphant vest wearing, your loving caretakers will make you 1920s drinks as well. Why is that interesting? Well, ’cuz you couldn’t even drink in this country in the ’20s, much less invent. AaaaaHAAA!

Here’s a couple vintage cocktails that talented people who aren’t me will make for customers who are you:

SEELBACH: Bourbon, Cointreau, Bitters, Champaigne

TUXEDO #2: Gin, Maraschino, Orange Bitters

HOTEL NACIONALE: Rum, Pineapple, Lime, Apricot

BEES KNEES: Gin, Honey, Lemon, Bitters.

Whee. Tonight. Etc.
