At last, it’s February 7th (or, if you prefer, October 19th). You know what that means – Community is back for its fourth season, folks! We’ve already made 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation cocktails, so now it’s time to celebrate our long-awaited return to Greendale with a batch of Community drinks. After the jump, you’ll find everything from an Annie’s Boobs-themed alcoholic beverage to the Reading Rainbow concoction your childhood never wanted. Check ‘em out, then whip up your favorite for tonight’s episode. … Read More
We took a handful of the biggest film and TV nominees and turned them into tasty and/or jokey drinks to enhance your Golden Globes experience (and by “jokey” we mean a few of these might not sound fantastic, but they’re all drinkable, we promise). So, feel free to chug one of these suckers whenever its respective production wins an award, or just sip on your favorite throughout the evening — whatever floats your Life of Pi… Read More
Let’s glitz up the holiday with a little Bowie action, shall we? If you’ve been hanging around Flavorwire for the past few months, you may have come across our Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock cocktails. Now, because we love us some David Bowie, we’re paying homage to the star with our very first batch of musician-themed cocktails. We’ve got everything (and by everything we mean six drinks) from Ziggy to Jareth, so check ‘em out after the jump, and listen to this while you’re at it. ‘Tis the season! … Read More
Attention all 30 Rock fans: it’s Liz Lemon’s wedding day! We haven’t the slightest clue as to whether or not tonight’s episode will actually end in Liz’s and Criss’ nuptials (because no one ever lets Liz Lemon have nice things), but that shouldn’t stop us from doing a bit of celebratory drinking, eh? We already debuted our batch of Parks and Recreation cocktails, and now we’ve teamed up with mixologist pal Mick Matricciano to bring you six more 30 Rock-themed cocktails… or dare we say — 30 Rocktails? Check ‘em out after the jump, and hit the comments to let us know your drink of choice. (Spoiler alert: it won’t be Jenna’s Juice Fast Delirium). … Read More
Here at Flavorpill, we love us some Parks and Rec. We also love cocktails, so it was only a matter of time before we figured out how to combine the two. At last — ladies and gentlemen, it’s our pleasure to introduce our very own Pawnee-themed, illustrated cocktail recipes. With some help from this author’s hometown pal and talented mixologist Mick Matricciano (who was recently named the creator of Charleston’s best cocktail, so we promise these will be especially tasty), we’re bringing you everything from an alcoholic bacon and egg concoction to a “snake juice” bomb. Treat yo’ self to our seven delicious drinks, then hit the comments to do some tipsy typing. … Read More
Over the past few years, we’ve noticed a trend: TV watching has become a more social activity — and we don’t just mean Twitter freaks out every time something major happens on Breaking Bad. For instance, ever since Sunday became the night AMC and HBO battle to the death for Quality Television supremacy, we’ve hosted small weekly viewing parties. Recently, we’ve also taken to mixing drinks inspired by the shows we’re watching. (Go ahead, call us geeks. It wouldn’t be the first time.) Because True Blood is a whole lot more fun when you’re trashed, and you need an excuse to make the most elaborate Jell-O shots of all time, we’ve paired some of our favorite shows with complementary cocktails, after the jump. No, we didn’t include Mad Men, because that would have been too easy and utterly redundant. … Read More
The time is almost upon us — it’s only a few weeks until the always extravagant Manhattan Cocktail Classic descends on the city, with hundreds of events, parties, and of course, high-class booze. We’ve been keeping our excitement at bay by focusing our energies on the fabulous designs sent in by our readers for the temporary tattoo contest running on our Facebook page. Finally, we can announce the winners of this contest — the designs that were awesome enough to be made into 1,000 real temporary tattoos each. Our grand prize winner also won tickets to the Manhattan Cocktail Classic’s yearly Gala. Click through to see the designs and learn about the designers. … Read More
We all have our favorite bars: the local go-to spots with good drinks, good music, and good people. But sometimes we need something a little bit more… special. That’s when we turn to our neighborhood speakeasies, the spots you most likely won’t stumble into on your own — mostly because you’d never find them. Hidden behind unmarked doors, secret entrances, or guarded stairwells, these Prohibition-era inspired throwbacks add a hint of mystery and intrigue to a night out, combining a sense of exclusivity with serious mixology.
Inspired by Armani Code Sport’s Dive into the Night Foursquare competition, we offer a roundup of some of the best of these hideaways around the country. Check out the ones you don’t know, tell us your own favorites in the comments, and wherever you go, be sure to check in and take part in the Foursquare challenge — you could win a bottle of Armani Code Sport daily, or even the grand-prize trip to NYC for an Armani shopping spree. … Read More
How do you know you’re a Simpsons fan? If you heard the words “drink” and “Simpsons” and thought to yourself: “To alcohol! The cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems.” Remembering that toast should be all the answer you need. And for you fans, the must-have oddity of the moment is not the Marge Simpson Playboy spread but John Ortved’s The Simpsons: An Uncensored, Unauthorized History. Unlike that creepy, banana-hued centerfold, you can carry it around in public. Better yet, Matt Groening does not get any more of your money. In that spirit, here are the best alcoholic beverages from the show, and a few suggestions on how to get a hold of them… Read More
By now we’ve all been assaulted by a publicity blitz as overwhelming as a giant squid attack for The Watchmen. The movie’s success gives some hope for Alan Moore fans that more of his comics might head to Hollywood — well, maybe not his “X-rated masterpiece”. It’ll also likely serve as a boon for academics who want to examine moral relativism in superhero films. Oh wait… that’s already happened.
What’s been sorely missing from the Watchmen promotions are loosely connected cocktails. How can a movie starring a character named Dr. Manhattan not also endorse a Manhattan cocktail variation? Thankfully, a few ardent fans have taken care of that. After the jump, let’s examine some superhero concoctions. … Read More
