Wanna be on Top…Model?

Wanna be on Top…Model?

July 15, 2021

Tyra Banks would be rooting for every single one of these Star Wars sequel trilogy characters. But who will be crowned the Resistance's Next Top Model?

-

Ty-Roni Banks - Mix together 1 oz gin, 1 oz campari, 1 oz sweet vermouth, and garnish with an orange peel.

Post episode justification for Ty-Roni Banks by Claire - 1) It's a great pun, 2) Campari is red like one of the suns on Tatooine, 3) Gin sounds like Jyn, the rebel fighter that famously helped blow up the Death Star, 4) Sweet Vermouth sounds like Summa-Verminoth, the multi-tentacled monster that once pursued the Millennium Falcon, 5) Orange is the color of the rebel alliance flight suits

Life in the Fastburn

Life in the Fastburn

June 24, 2021

They said it couldn't be done. They said that a "Fastburn" (the opposite of a slow burn) didn't exist. Luckily Grace is chaotic enough that she can find the unfindable on the internet. This week she brings a time traveling Naruto fanfic set in a dinner. Enjoy!

-

Sidecar: Add 2 oz brandy (cognac), 1 oz orange liquor, and 0.75 oz lemon juice into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled. Strain into a glass and garnish with a curl of an orange peel.

Love Actually is…a Teen Wolf

Love Actually is…a Teen Wolf

June 17, 2021

We're back with a MTV favorite: Teen Wolf! This week's episode Claire brings Grace a Sterek fic (Derek Hale/ Stiles Stilinski). Neither have ever seen the show beyond the second hand information Claire has gleaned from the tumblr posts she's seen for years. Maybe this Vice President/Secret Service fic will be just the thing to make her add it to her watchlist. 

-

Full Moon - Mix together 1.5 oz hot water, 1 oz orange liqueur (we used triple sec), 1 oz amaretto, 1 oz honey, and 0.5 oz lemon juice. Pour into glass mug and enjoy!

Never on a School Night

Never on a School Night

June 10, 2021

Back in the middle school years Grace and Claire developed matching crushes on Cole and Dylan Sprouse. Some fascinations never die, but age like a fine liquor in a wine cellar. Only to be cracked open years later when careers take on fewer twin shenanigans.

This week's shenanigans we dive into...Riverdale!

-

Gargoyle Blood Punch: Mix together equal parts 151 rum, currant vodka, whiskey, cranberry juice, add red punch koolaid and sugar to taste.

Praised Be

Praised Be

June 3, 2021

TW/CW: Non Con - Unfortunately the nature of Handmaids Tale is...the nonconsensual nature of Gilead. This fic isn't as explicit as many other fics could be, but this is your warning up front. If you don't like Handmaids Tale this might not be the episode for you.

This fic is also a crossover with Game of Thrones, so be prepared to listen to Claire reexplain the plot and characters of GoT to Grace. Enjoy!

-

Pairing: Blessed be the fruit - Mix together 1 ounce pomegranate juice, 1 ounce aperol (or orange juice), 4 ounces Prosecco. Garnish with a slice of orange.

Haunting Me, Haunting You

Haunting Me, Haunting You

May 27, 2021

This week Grace brings an Alina/Darkling fic from the Grishaverse.

Spoiler: we recorded this before we watched the Shadowhunter show on Netflix, so be prepared to listen us stumble along blindly.

Second Spoiler: No promises we'll ever not be ourselves and seem like we're stumbling along blindly even when we think we aren't.

-

Pairing: Darklina - Mix together 1.5 oz vodka, 1.5 oz grape schnapps, splash of lemon juice, splash of sprite
