Drink Tip: Start dropping the artillery and don’t stop until everyone has been wasted!

Spinal Tap

Spinal Tap mixed drink

Spinal Tap

Spinal Tap –  This drink was one from about a week ago that I skipped for something else so it has nothing to do with commemorating anything going on today… get the book if you want to know…

Spinal Tap:

  • 1 oz vodka
  • ½ peach Schnapps
  • ½ oz white crème de cacao

Drink Tip: Do about ten more of these shots and then then watch the movie!

Peter Pan Cocktail

Peter Pan Cocktail

Peter Pan Cocktail

Peter Pan Cocktail – Sandy Duncan… really?  Today’s drink is in commemoration of Sandy Duncan’s last performance playing Peter Pan on Broadway almost 30 years ago… is that really the best they could come up with for today?  Show of hands, who here even remembers Sandy Duncan? Nothing against the little lady but c’mon, I think we can do better than that!  Today in 1865 the House of Representatives passed a constitutional amendment to abolish slavery, not a bad thing to commemorate if you ask me. How about Jackie Robinson? It’s his birthday today… hell, why not Justin Timberlake?  It’s Justin’s b-day today (turns 30) and we wouldn’t even need to change the name of the drink… he’s kind of a Peter Pan if you ask me… (insert your own meaning)

Peter Pan Cocktail

  • ¾ oz gin
  • ¾ oz dry vermouth
  • ¾ oz orange juice
  • 2 dashes bitters

Drink Tip: If you change what your’re drinking to today, might as well change the drink also… this one tastes like shampoo…
