Drinking with Bwog: There Is An Emptiness
Written by Bwog Staff
It’s midterm season. The jolly japes of February have come to an end. There’s no leap day to cheer, no Olympics for another year. The craziness of the Oscars has finished, and the madness of March has yet to come. Long story short, there’s close no reason to drink – and what better reason to do so? Stick it to the doldrums with mature whiskey and the clink of crystal glasses, or more likely Crack-Del-Four-Loko and the crinkle of a red Solo Cup. Either way, put a spring back in your step with these out-of-vogue libations.
If you’re really feeling weird about this shortened month and the fact that the universe gave us an extra quarter of a day that we won’t get to trade in for a while, try the Leap Year:
- 1.5 shots gin
- 1/3 shot sweet vermouth
- 1/3 shot orange liqeur
- Squeeze of lemon juice
When all your friends are locked up in Butler and you’re super bored and want everyone to just shut up and take a night off, make them a Fireball shot…kind of as a form of punishment, but also ‘cuz it’s delicious:
- 1/2 shot white rum
- 1/2 shot cinnamon schnapps
- Tabasco to taste (though 2 dashes is recommended)
Miss awards season already? Can’t wait for next year? Loved that James Bond tribute at the Oscars? Have a James Bond Martini:
- 2 shots gin
- 1 shot vodka
- 1/2 oz. white wine
- Lemon twist
Shaken, not stirred.
If, like Bwog, you’re a huge Olympics junkie, get your fix before the Sochi Olympics (less than one year to go!!!) with a classic White Russian:
- 2 shots vodka
- 1 shot coffee liqueur
- Light cream to top of cup
