Disclaimer: I have been attempting for some time now to keep my blog from falling into a single niche...one of geekiness. But I cannot hold back any longer, I will be posting a lot of nerdy things in the upcoming weeks, and if that's not something you're interested in, well, maybe just appreciate the amount of work that goes into creating these dorky meals!
Doctor Who has, and will continue to be, my favorite show for a long, long time. I was first introduced to it by Netflix, when it kept recommending it to me based on my preferences. Within episodes, I was hooked.
Like the X-files (an old favorite of mine, I own all 9 seasons and both movies), the show has everything. Danger, adventure, monsters, aliens, romance, humor, and of course, attractive male leads 🙂
I am in love with the current doctor, played by Matt Smith. But my doctor has always been David Tennant.
Ironically enough, when I started working with Kevin, he was too shy to initiate conversation. And, being the newbie, I was too intimidated by his lush beard to talk to him. I mean, he could have been like 40 or something. But then he showed up to work wearing a Matt Smith shirt, and I pretty much refused to leave him alone after that. And we've been dating for over a year now, so thanks Doctor Who!
It was perfect that his spring break coincide with with the start of this season of Doctor Who! And we decided that in preparation for the big night, we would whip up some awesome themed goodies. I'll spread the rest of them out to last the season, but here's one that will certainly whet your appetite...
Deliciously green cocktails that almost glow with sonic energy...and they taste pretty great, too. Making them is quite simple, and in fact, you could make any glowing cocktail and call it a Sonic Screwdriver, provided that you have the correct accessories.
But to make my version, you need:
- 2 oz midori
- 1 oz plain vodka (I use UV or Pinnacle, nothing too fancy)
- 2 oz pineapple juice
- juice from 1/2 a lime
Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake, and pour into a fun martini glass of your choice. I added some colorful swizzle sticks in the colors of the 10th AND 11th doctor's screwdrivers, mine being the blue one because that's David Tennant's screwdriver in the picture there.
So Allons-y, or Geronimo, whatever floats your boat. Make a cocktail and settle in to watch a 1000 year old alien travel through space and time in his little blue box.
