Topic of Discussion: Worst and Best Movie Villains…

Worst Villains:
  • Major Monocle insists that Edward Cullen from the Twilight series is actually a villain because he spends his immortality hanging out at high schools picking up chicks.
  • Luke’s got a hate-on for Darth Maul’s mindless characterization.
  • ….And what the hell was up with Bullseye from Daredevil (2003)
  • And children of all ages fear of Ivan Ooze from The Power Rangers Movie but for reasons other than the fact he is scary.
  • KatieLou taps Batman and Robin for her picks of Arnold Schwarzenegger as  Mr. Freeze (mis-identified as Batman Forever…sad trombone)
  • ….and the Plants from The Happening
The Best:
Game: “Drink It or Sink It” Challenge

Passione Fresco

Major Monocle has issues feeling his lips after taking a few sips. Oktober not a huge fan due to the sweetness of the drink. KatieLou thinks that it would work as a good autumn/ fall drink, because it’ll warm you up.

Recipe: Passione Fresco

finished

This is a take off on the traditional French 75. Instead of the champagne we’ve substituted Moscato (if you like fizzy drinks use a Moscato d’asti, but add to the mixture after you shake it, to keep the carbonation) for a sweeter taste. The Elder Flower liqueur is intended to add a floral note along with the citrus of the lemon.

ingred

Ingredients:

  • 2 Lemon wedges
  • 1 1/2 oz Gin
  • 1/4 oz  Elder Flower Liqueur (I prefer St. Germain)
  • 1 1/2 oz  Moscato ( I used Seven Daughters here, because its lightly sweet)

                           Optional:  1 tsp of Powdered Sugar (this all depends on the type of Moscato you use, some are sweeter than others. Warm your pallet up with a taste of your Moscato choice to determine whether you want it needs the sugar)

Directions:

Put 1 1/2 oz of Gin and Elder Flower Liqueur into a mixing tin with ice.

Squeeze your Lemon Wedges into the mixing tin. (I have a pet peeves about seeds in a drink that is served Up, so use a strainer or clear the seeds from the lemon first)

Top the mixture off with the 1 1/2 oz of Moscato.

Give it all a shake or a swish and serve up in large cocktail glass .

Topic: The Best Pet is…

  • Major opens the floor with his acceptance of dogs, due to his past experiences
  • KatieLou reveals that her ideal pet is a Walrus. Much debate about the logistics involved ensued (And if you wondered… It is NOT legal to own a walrus). Kevin Smith made a film about some of these bizarre Walrus issues.
  • Oktober makes the case for birds. Cuddly, soothing, long lived and basically mini-veloceraptors.
  • Fish came in on the list, but are a fairly passive pet. For some it is a transitional pet…i.e. take care of this before you try to take care of this.
  • Cats are full of personality and some people jive with them, but others who really don’t.
  • Hedgehogs are interesting, but require a lot of monitoring. Otherwise you end up with an Overweight Hedgehog! (Thank You Parry Gripp!)
  • How About Snakes?…Yeah they’re weird. And don’t get me started on the two headed variety…

Game: Five Word Films

In this game we take five words from the official film description and try to guess which flick it is.

Topic of Discussion:

The Creepy Stories You Were Told As A Child And How You Feel About Them As An Adult….

  • Luke reveals the story that was told to him by his father…The Hooker Man. Which is told in just about every town and state in the US.
  • Major Monocle still has all of his toes despite the revelation his grand father made about the “Toe Monster” that lives in his basement.
  • Oktober ain’t afraid of no ghost, but is a little wary of these hungry faces.  Catfish The Size Of Buicks!

Our Game: The “Drink it” or “Sink It” Challenge

A Sweet Whipped Ass

Or panel ultimately enjoyed this particular libation. There was a momentary disconnect on the way the beverage looked versus the whipped vodka smell. It was described as “pie-like,” “a sunset drink” and “Damn Good.” The Major felt like it had a cider-esque taste. Which sparked a conversation about different kinds of cider and their unique flavors.

Recipes: A Sweet Whipped Ass

sweet whipped

This is a nice summertime refresher based on the standard Moscow Mule with both sweet an spicy flavors. This one’s good for anytime of day, but there’s nothing like sipping on one of these in the late afternoon on the back porch with a couple of good friends.

ingredi

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 a lime
  • 1 1/2 oz Whipped Vodka of your choice (I personally prefer Pinnacle)
  • Ginger Ale (something spicy like Vernors)

Directions:

Squeeze the 1/2 a lime into your mixing tin.

Add the 1 1/2 oz of Whipped Vodka

Give everything a stir or a swish, then add the ginger ale.

Pour all of that into a well iced pint glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
