Nerds Gotta Drink: Naveen’s Grasshopper

Fangirls, I’ve been diggin’ a little deeper, trying to come up with nerdy¬†snacks and drinks, and this one truly is royalty. Not from the bayou, but tasty enough for the prince or princess in your life, this grasshopper is phenomenal.

Nerds Gotta Drink: Dumbledore’s Lemondrop

From early on in the first book of the Potter series, it’s pretty darn clear that Albus Dumbledore is a bit mad. One of his favorite things (which he offers to McGonagall as they’re waiting for Hagrid), is the muggle candy, lemon drops. Lucky for us, there’s a lemon drop cocktail. I modified the recipe and it became a quick favorite in this Fangirl’s household.

Nerds Gotta Drink: Guzzoline

Fangirls, one of the many movies of 2015 that it took me far too long to see, was Mad Max. Mad Max is a phenomenal movie about badass cars and the most rad of the rad characters, Imperator Furiosa. Furiosa leaves her area with the leader under the impression that she is after Guzzoline, their word for gas. Instead she’s taking his concubines away to hide in the green place, but I thought a Guzzoline drink would be more fun.

Nerd’s Gotta Drink: Penzeys Spices Mint Hot Cocoa

I think, by now, we all know that Mint Hot Chocolate is the only way to go, with me. I love mint and chocolate (York Peppermint Patties, New Year’s Cocoa, Minty Zaki’s Mudslide, everything). It’s the best way to do chocolate; put mint in it! So when I was in a mall with a spice shop (that I knew my mother would love), I dragged her in and left with some absolutely enchanting Mint Hot Chocolate mix.
