Ep. 50: Reverse Poltergeist

Ep. 50: Reverse Poltergeist

This episode was recorded live at www.Twitch.tv/DrunkDish on May 05, 2021.

Welcome to Episode 50: Reverse Poltergeist! This very special episode was recorded live on Twitch. As such, the dishes interact with the chat quite a bit. The dishes talk the history of Cinco de Mayo and get pretty pickled (especially Melissa).

The featured drink this episode is the Classic Margarita.

Classic Margarita


2 oz. Tequila
1 oz. Cointreau
1.5 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
Optional: ¼-½ oz. (or up to your taste level) Simple Syrup
Optional: Margarita salt for the rim of the glass

  • Run lime wedge around the outer rims of 2 rocks glasses and dip rims in salt. Set aside.
  • In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice (and simple syrup if using). Fill with ice and shake until thoroughly chilled, about 15 seconds (the bottom of a metal shaker should frost over).
  • Fill glass with fresh ice and strain margarita into it.

This episode’s recipe is Mexicali Chicken from Betty Crocker’s Box.

Recipe: Last Word

Recipe: Last Word

The featured cocktail of Episode 45: Violence in my mouth, is the Last Word cocktail. While this cocktail packs a wallop, I highly recommend it for those that are looking to expand their pallet outside of spritzers or Tiki. I also recommend upping the gin to even out the sweetness.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 oz. Gin (I recommend 1 full oz.)
  • 3/4 oz. Green Chartreuse
  • 3/4 oz. Maraschino Liqueur
  • 3/4 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
  • Garnish: cherry

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake for 10-12 seconds, or until shaker is frosty. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.

Recipe: Coquito (Puerto Rican Eggnog)

Recipe: Coquito (Puerto Rican Eggnog)

Coquito, also known by some as “Puerto Rican Eggnog” is the featured drink for Episode 40: Medieval Lunchables. I chose a version without eggs, which seems to be hotly debated. It was absolutely delicious so I am at peace with my choices. 🙂

Ingredients (batch): 

1 (13.5 oz) can coconut milk 

4 oz evaporated milk 

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk 

2 cups (1 15 oz can) cream of coconut (like Coco Lopez) 

1/4 tsp cinnamon 

1/8 tsp nutmeg 

1 tsp vanilla 

1 ½-2 cups Dark Rum (I used Appleton Estate Reserve Jamaican. I saw recipes with both dark or white rum. I went with a gold rum to add more flavor and a bit of funk. Would not recommend a spiced rum. This can also easily be made virgin by omitting the rum altogether and adding some rum extract for that funk.) 

Cinnamon sticks for garnish 

Directions: 

In a blender, add all the ingredients. Blend on high until mixture is well combined, 1-2 minutes. 

Strain if desired, and then transfer to a pitcher or glass bottles and chill for at least 4 hours, or until you are ready to serve. Shake or stir before serving.
