Enjoy a lazy day with a movie and a refreshing cocktail

 

Cocktails and Movies Secret Window lazy

Summer is here in LA, sort of. And we’ve been extremely lazy. (apologies to the staff who have been doing great work, but the boss takes a few days to move into “office mode” when the sun’s out…) We’ve been watching a lot of movies and drinking more than our fair share of cocktails, and since it IS Wednesday, we’re in the mood to find a new cocktail. We’ve found just the right libation to help us through there rest of the week.

So, without further ado, let’s make some kick ass Mid Week Harrumph Day cocktails and slide toward the weekend…

The Mid-Week “Harrumph Day” Cocktail – Wassail

What the hell is wassail? Let us tell you.

Drinking too much wassail will make you dumb things

For a long time, I loved rum. Rum, rum, rum! It was always a good thing to mix with Coke or Eggnog (remember the Tim’s Film Class Eggnog?). Anyway, times have changed and tastes refined, but rum does come in handy and is popular with my friends still. In this holiday time, I searched for a big recipe of something I haven’t made for a large group of people before and came across Wassail. I have to admit the only time that I have ever heard of wassail in in the Christmas carol “Wassail, Wassail.” Then, I found the recipe.

The Mid Week “Harrumph Day” Cocktail – The Snowball

Because, Winter

Snow is here! And gone in some places. But, still Winter is upon us and we dream of times playing in the snow as kids, sledding and getting into snow ball fights until someone got really hurt and then everyone went inside for hot cocoa and a movie. Now, we know better, AND we drink cocktails all day long instead. So, to honor snow’s arrival, we present this week’s selection: the Snowball Cocktail.

Home for the holidays cocktailsandmovies.com

It’s time to be thankful movie goers and cocktail drinkers. Time to go home for the holiday and see family and answer all those questions you’ve been dodging all year. Like, “What the hell is CocktailsandMovies.com, anyway?” (sigh) It’s also the last Thanksgiving before the 2016 elections. So prepare yourself for a lot of politics. We won’t delve into a side this way or that. But, what we will do is offer you an easy to make cocktail that will both satisfy your craving for a drink and allow you to deal with the family issues that tend to come out during this time to be thankful.

The Mid-Week “Harrumph Day” Cocktail – Spiked Egg Nog

Warming (and Fattening) You Up For Winter Movie Marathons

It’s getting colder out there, movie goers. And the holidays are almost upon us as you can tell from TV ads, Christmas music playing everywhere and of course, seeing eggnog in with all the dairy products at the supermarket. We haven’t done a mid week, Harrumph Day cocktail here at CocktailsandMovies.com in a while. So, while at the store with the beautiful Ms. Cocktails and Movies, we poked around the eggnog and I remembered a great spur of the moment recipe I created back in my film production classes at the University of Wisconsin. I knew I needed to wow my professor with my film and what better way to get the reviewers’ juices flowing than spiked eggnog. (You could say that this is where CocktailsandMovies.com actually began…)
