The All-American Dumpster Fire Punch is the featured cocktail in Episode 25 “Diners, Drive-Ins, and All-American Dumpster Fires” aka “Diners and American Politics”. This drink is a crowd-pleaser that can be altered to fit your specific guests’ tastes. Make a big batch and be sure to serve it in red solo cups. It’s the American way!
This recipe serves to, be sure to scale as appropriate. Be careful with this one. It will knock you on your ass and not even help with the medical bills (just like America)!
Ingredients: 4 oz. White Rum 4 oz. Vodka 2 oz. Blue Curacao 2 oz. Peach Schnapps 2 oz. Cranberry Juice 2 oz. Orange Juice Sprite to top (alternatively, use soda water/seltzer if you think this will be too sweet, it was for me and soda water made all the difference)
Directions: Combine all ingredients, except the bubbly, in a pitcher or punch bowl. Distribute evenly in red solo cups. Top with Sprite.
Move over Long Island, a new, highly alcoholic, iced tea is in town! The Alaskan Iced Tea is the featured cocktail in “Episode 23: Moose may not be viewed from an airplane” aka Alaskan Cuisine. We absolutely loved this cocktail. As I say on the show, I subbed out the sour mix (because EW) and added fresh lime and lemon juice. I also cut back on the blue curacao for my cocktail as I don’t like stuff that is too sweet. Aimee had the full sugar version and she loved it. Definitely recommend making this one!
Ingredients: 2 oz. Blue Curacao (use 1 oz. if drink is too sweet) 1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice 1 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice .5 oz. Gin .5 oz. Rum .5 oz. Vodka Sprite or any lemon-lime soda
Directions: Combine all ingredients except for the soda in a shake with ice. Shake 8-10 seconds. Strain into a large Collin’s or hurricane style glass over ice. Top with Sprite. Enjoy!
