Topic: The Blackest of Fridays….


  • Oktober doesn’t participate in Black Friday (except for that one year when she bought a TV)


  • Nabbit and Major Monocle journeyed out one year and were ultimately miserable, except for watching the craziness of people.





  • The hottest shopping item is no longer a toy…it’s mostly electronic gadgets. And it can mainly been found online.


Game: Band Name or Book Title

This is one of our favorite games here at A Quick Cocktail….mainly because it gets everybody’s ire up because of Major Monocles extreme guessing ability. Luke picks a list of band names and book title and the panel has to identify which one is which. It’s not as simple as it sounds…..

Title: Drinks Giving, Meat and Horrible Life Coaching

Run Time: 23 min 47 secs

Topic: The Night Before Thanksgiving…”DrinksGiving”…


  • Luke mentions “DrinksGiving” and now Nabbit is thinking gravy flavored beer…which leads everybody to comment on the Jones Soda Holiday Pack…featuring  “Turkey and Gravy” and “Wild Herb Stuffing” sodas.


  • Oktober points out that “Dealing with Families is hard.” Making the idea of getting out of the house when all the family is rolling in. But the draw of a free meal has generally been irresistible for Major Monocle and Luke.


  • One theory as to why it’s so popular is that students are coming in from colleges and want to see old friends.


  • Another theory is that the preparer of the thanksgiving meals doesn’t want to feed everybody the night before too. So in an effort to save their sanity they suggest people go out or order in.






  • Nabbit explains the delicious abomination that is TurDucken (or as we’ve decided to call it…Meat Layer Cake)


  • The group presents in tone deaf version of The Second Week of Deer Camp….because The Major has some interesting stories about drinking…in the wild.


Game:  Life Coach


This is a  game where some one is chosen from the group to leave the room while the others decide what that person will be when they come back. That person must then ask questions to determine what they are. Simple enough…but it can take a turn for the perplexing if there is ambiguity in the answers to the sacrificial lambs questions, as we found out in this episode. Luke got lost….really really lost. Psi-aye-yaye.

Title: Night Clothes, Nudes and Pumpkin Pie

Run Time: 17 min 51 secs

Topic: Night Clothes or Nothing? How people sleep…

  • According to an article in The Atlantic, 31% of woman and 14% of men said they sleep with nothing on at all.  55% of men and 34% of women sleep in full pajamas.
  • Major Monocle gets right to the crux of the matter, no clothes equals more touching. Oktober wonders if the Major might just a stingray
  • Oktober schools the panel on getting to bed after a long day… get there as quickly as possible as easily as possible. Sometimes clothes come off, most times not…including shoes.
  • Also down that rabbit hole was a bunch of clickbait about the many ways that sleeping naked are good for you, but the panel questions exactly who is the audience for this
  • We learn that Major Monocle is a boxer briefs kinda sleeper, Nabbit is a napping nude, and Oktober is at least a shirt and socks. Luke is a seasonal sleeper (naked in the summer, flannels in the winter).

Game: “Drink It” Or “Sink It” Challenge

This weeks drink is a seasonal favorite…The Pumpkin Pie Martini. This creamy dessert drink is just what you need to get you through the holidays.

  • Oktober liked it despite the fact that it is not her usual type of texture. But she liked the flavor a lot.
  • Nabbit and Major Monocle begin obsessing over turning it into a dessert topping.

So check it out, give it a try and let us know what you think.



The Pumpkin Pie Martini




  • Combine all the ingredients in a mixing tin with ice. (the harder the ice the better)
  • Shake that tin for all you’re worth. (You want to shake it more than you normally would so that you get lots of air into the cream)
  • Strain the contents into a cocktail glass. (A good strainer will prevent a bunch of ice chips from going into the glass)
  • Sprinkle nutmeg on top and enjoy.

Topic: Christmas Creep!

  • Nabbit noted that Christmas Creep really doesn’t creep in anymore…It’s more like a Christmas Ninja, you turn around and…BAM!… It’s there.
  • For Oktober it’s more about Christmas tunes showing up in August or September. Or the Christmas/Holiday/Yule decorations going up before trick or treat.

Game: True Thing or Phony Fact
