I’ve always wished I could grow a beard, but no luck so far (though I secretly suspect that Steve has been sneaking into my room to shave me in the middle of the night). When I read Klondaeg the Monster Hunter, I was always jealous of Klondaeg's beard, all bright orange and full of miscellaneous crumbs. I may not be able (or allowed) to grow one, but I’ve figured out how to mix one!
Here’s what you need.
Pour the boiling water over the ramen and wait until the noodles are soft and edible. While they warm up, put the Goldfish crackers in a plastic bag and mash them up with a rolling pin. By now your noodles should be ready, so strain them and put them in the martini glass. Add the Goldfish crumbs and vodka, then stir.
Enjoy eati--I mean drinking your delicious cocktail!
Okay, so everyone is making such a big foo-faw over a book-reviewing owl and her amazing drinks and reviews and all that and I thought, you know, I can do alcohol stuff too. So I'm going to. Because I've been forced to read every book or novella written by all five current members of the Guild, I know what drinks pair the best with the reading experiences provided by the books. Yeah, that sounds professional. Leave that in.
Right. So, I figured the best place to start would be with the most drunkened of the Guild - AC - and his book (which I am legally required to list as a SPFBO entry...sigh): Robocopter Ski Patrol.
So, in the book, there's a scene where a stupid character named Ace Wifflacor (I hate AC's naming system) is getting drunk on a transport plane and runs out of mixers, so he has to make a substitution, which ends in predictable results. Namely, he blacks out and wakes up in the middle of a firefight in the city of Prague right before a nuclear bomb drops. No, it doesn't make sense in context either. This, like that, is The Ace.
Anyway, it's a really easy recipe, so try to follow along.
What you will need for this recipe is as follows:
A Solo cup (red or otherwise)
Many fluid oz. of rum, preferably toilet bowl cleaner-grade but also gold. None of that white rum crap.
A bottle of rubbing alcohol - any brand
Here's how you put the recipe together:
1. Set the glass down on a table, counter, or mini-fridge.
2. If desired, drop a few ice cubes in the glass.
3. Pour in as much rum as you want. More is probably better.
4. Top with a generous glug of rubbing alcohol.
Bonne boisson! (That means 'good drink' in French)
