The Math of You
Episode 038 - Space Ghost and Fire Ants, feat. Andrew Ihla
Writer and film critic Andrew Ihla is here to discuss Space Ghost: Coast to Coast. Along the way we’ll discuss using the Universal Monsters as a theme for decorating your kitchen, the pervasive nature of #SkuxLife, and what you get when a generation of writers have been raised by television, and then write television.
Signature Cocktail: Kentucky Drought
This beverage is brought to you by Old Kentucky Shark of the Kentucky Nightmare Talk Show Liquor Corporation. You might remember him. He’s the fish you met earlier.
1oz peach juice
1 1/2oz bourbon
1/2oz Simple syrup
1/4oz Southern Comfort
1/4oz Triple Sec
1/2oz lemon juice
Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake to chill and combine. Strain over ice in an old fashioned glass.
Guest Cocktail: Kentucky Nightmare
This drink is like a hamburger with Predator braids. You’d know if you’d been there. Your guitar would explode in your hands.
1oz coffee liqueur
1oz Jim Beam Fire or Fireball Whiskey
3 dashes hot sauce
Layer coffee liqueur and Jim Beam in a cocktail glass, and add hot sauce.
Bonus Cocktail: Death Flip
You don’t want to meet this drink in a dark alley while knifin’ around.
1/2oz Green Chartreuse
1/4oz simple syrup
1 whole egg
pinch of grated nutmeg (garnish)
Combine ingredients in a shaker without ice and shake to emulsify. Add ice and shake again. Strain over ice in a cocktail glass through a fine mesh strainer.
