October 11, 2013 Bar’s Open Posted in Goo | Tagged bill murray, cocktails Your challenge today is to come up with a Bill Murray themed cocktail request. Good luck with that.
Well, there is actually a Groundhog Day Cocktail, but I can’t stand vermouth (sweet or otherwise) so I’ll pass.
However, from this (loosely) related article, a bucket of Colorado Spring sounds like a plan, pretty pretty please.
There’s also a Ghostbuster, for anyone who fancies it.
And I ain’t afraid of no zombie, although that might’ve got lost in translation
I’ll have a Punxatawney Phil please. 3 parts vermouth, 12 parts vodka. That’s what they don’t tell you about in the film.
I haven’t seen the version of Hamlet in which Murray plays Polonius, but IMDB assures me there is one, and this bit of casting strikes me as the best thing about it. Imagine Murray delivering these lines (to Julia Stiles, if completeness is your thing):
He’s talking about bartenders, of course. Mine’s a pint.
Channelling lost in translation, I’ll have a Tokyo Remon Sour. Google is not my friend for this so that’s shochu, lemon juice and soda, and a stinking hangover the next day. Thank you.
Who you gonna call?
I’ll have a Slimer please! http://www.cocktail.uk.com/Cocktail-Recipe/The-slimer.htm
