Earlier this week I read this incredible, biographical graphic novel about Andre The Giant. I knew of him from The Princess Bride, and I had a small inkling that he was involved in wresting, but I knew very little about wresting. But the graphic novel really opened my eyes to the way things are done in wrestling, and to a multitude of information on Andre The Giant.
Have you Fangirls seen Aristocats? If you haven’t go watch it immediately. It’s a phenomenal movie about how this old woman is leaving her house and fortune to her cats, so her butler drugs them and catnaps them and throws them off a bridge. Luckily, these cats have boxy, so they team up with various other animals to get themselves home. I based this drink off of the drink that the butler, Edgar, makes for the cats, that he calls Creme de la Creme de la Edgar, because it’ll knock you out if you’re not careful.
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.
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.
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.
Fangirls, I like the grumpy green giant. I think he’s a cute grump, and I want to hang out with him all the time. So, when a coworker told me that there was a good way to make a drink that turns green like the Hulk, I got crazy pumped.
I am hoping, Fangirls, that you are all as excited as I am about the female Ghostbusters film set to release later this year. In my excitement, I needed a reminder from my boy that I should attempt a Ghostbusters themed drink! I figured one out that’s pretty darn good, and a bit reminiscent of the Ecto Cooler of days past; this one is just a lot more boozy.
