Painkiller

Were still scratching out heads about this one.  It all started with our confusion about the title, and got worse from there.  This week were reading the surreal Manga parody, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.  Try getting your spell check not to freak out over that combination of letters.

  • Moet & Champagne

We have done death in the afternoon before, (see the Lock and Key Episode where Todd and Bryan picked the same drink), but this week Q found a variation.  This was taken from a bars menu, so we don't have the exact measurements, so please experiment.  The squid ink is the big change here, making for a nice black cocktail.  

Bombed Out Manhattan

Jones, this book would begin Rucka’s long run writing Wonder Woman.  We changed up the format a little this week.  In part one we do a spoiler free intro to the book, then in part two we step thru the plot of the book and explore this gem.  Let us know what you think of the format change on our website, or any of our social media outlets.  Next week we are reading Hawkeye: My Life as a Weapon.  A modern take on what an Avenger does when he has no suit, no powers, and isn’t Avenging.

Piña Colada

There are many recipes of how to make a piña colada but the one that his friends tell in the book of José L. Díaz de Villegas to be the original recipe created by Monchito, is the following:

3 oz Coconut Cream
6 oz Pineapple Juice
1.5 oz White Rum

Pour 3 ounces of coconut cream, 6 ounces of pineapple juice and 11⁄2 ounces of white rum into a blender or shaker with crushed ice, and blend or shake very well until smooth. Pour into chilled glass, garnish with pineapple wedge and/or a maraschino cherry

An alcoholic drink that you can both sip and chew on.
