“Harrumph Day Cocktail:” The Angry Badger

by Tim Barley

Welcome back, football and football movies. On Wisconsin!



Football season is back! Time for some cooler weather and football games as we recover each Sunday after a Saturday night of cocktails and movies with friends. This last weekend, we saw our alma mater, The University of Wisconsin Badgers, beat a much more hyped team, LSU. So, we went searching for a good cocktail to add to our Wednesday Harrumph Day cocktails and we came up with this little one from Of course we are using it without permission.

So, without further ado, let’s make some kick ass Mid Week Harrumph Day cocktails and slide toward the weekend…(DISCLAIMER: As always, we have to remind you youngin’s out there that alcohol is for those over 21, which the state considers “adults.” As you can imagine, if they actually met some 21 year olds, including us, they would understand that the 21 year old drinking age is arbitrary at best. Still it’s the law.)


Ingredients: Cocktails and Movies Harrumph Day Cocktail Angry Badger

  • 11 oz. cider
  • 3 oz. Fireball Whiskey
  • 1 apple, sliced (optional)


  1. Mix cider and Fireball.
  2. Pour into a large glass filled with ice.
  3. Garnish with apple slices. (The apples will soak up the cinnamon-y flavor, making for a great snack when you’ve finished the drink.)

Chances are that you don’t have bubblegum flavored vodka in the office (we don’t), so try this one at home and watch Willy Wonka and remember a world of pure imagination.
