Bar’s Open

Your challenge today is to come up with a Bill Murray themed cocktail request. Good luck with that.

  1. And I ain’t afraid of no zombie, although that might’ve got lost in translation

  2. 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.

  3. 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):

    Polonius: Affection? Pooh! You speak like a green girl,
    Unsifted in such perilous circumstance.
    Do you believe his tenders, as you call them?

    Ophelia: I do not know, my lord, what I should think,

    Polonius: Marry, I will teach you! Think yourself a baby
    That you have ta’en these tenders for true pay,
    Which are not sterling. Tender yourself more dearly,
    Or (not to crack the wind of the poor phrase,
    Running it thus) you’ll tender me a fool.

    He’s talking about bartenders, of course. Mine’s a pint.

  4. 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.
