Magical Monster Drinks!

by T. Mack & Jen P

This month is all about the magical creatures we love. Jen P talked Mermaids, T. Mack bragged on Dragons, and Ana gushed about Unicorns. Now we’re bringing you one more reason to love all these creatures. T. Mack and Jen P spent a wild night creating these magical monster drinks especially for you (and us) to enjoy!

ARIEL’S NIGHT OUT

For the low-key mermaid, here’s a no-hassle twist on the classic Pina Colada.

Ingredients:

1 oz Coconut Rum

2 oz Pineapple Juice

Splash Blue Curacao

Squeeze of Lime

Stir, top with a mermaid charm, and enjoy!

 


TWO-HEADED DRAGON

 

Two heads, two separate flames. Like fire in a dragon’s throat, this shot goes down smooth, but burns sooo good.

 

Ingredients:

1 part Pineapple Rum

I part Blue Curacao

Green Cake Decorator Gel (to rim)

 


FROSTED UNICORN FARTS

 

Made of magic, and rainbows and unicorn toots, this sweet treat is best served as a dessert. But be careful! It’s so delicious, it’ll sneak up on you fast.

Ingredients:

Ice in a glass

1 oz Coconut Rum Cream

Prepared White Hot Cocoa (We love the taste of Land-O-Lakes)

1-2 Drops Food Coloring (We chose blue)

Rainbow Marshmallows

Pastel Rainbow Sprinkles

 

Stir the food coloring into the prepared hot chocolate until color is consistent. Set aside. Pour the rum cream over the ice. Add the hot chocolate. Top with the marshmallows and sprinkles, then serve with a fun straw.

 


We hope you enjoy drinking these delicious treats as much as we did… or maybe not quite as much. Remember to drink responsibly, then come back and tell us how you liked these magical monster drinks. While you’re here, share your favorite cocktail recipe with us in the comments. Maybe we’ll give it a shot at our next party.

For the Love… of Dragons

by T. Mack

I don’t watch HBO’s Game of Thrones. Yes, I know it’s “really great” and “epic” and “one of the best shows to ever grace television screens” or whatever. But the series also features a particular brand of ultra-violence to which I prefer not to expose myself. So I don’t watch the show. I do, however, binge-watch clips on YouTube of scenes that feature the character, Daenerys Targaryen. Why?! Because she’s the frakking Mother of Dragons! That’s why! And because dragons are AMAZING!

Innocence Lost: A “WONDER WOMAN” Review

by T. Mack

Everything you’ve heard about DC’s Wonder Woman is true. It’s a really good film–the best DC has managed to put out so far. It features a terrific script, stellar performances, an amazing musical score, and a full visual color spectrum. The film lives up to the hype and you should definitely make time to see it in theaters. However, there is one element of the film that has gotten less attention than these others. That is the fact that this movie is, in it’s own way, a coming of age story about the loss of innocence. In watching the movie and thinking about it in the days following my viewing, this idea kept coming to the forefront of my mind. I think it deserves to be highlighted, so here we go…
