Happy Hour: Comics And Cocktails #3.5 ‘Werewolf Cocktails’

by Brendan M. Allen

It’s that time again. We were all set to record a new episode of Happy Hour: Comics and Cocktails/Grumpy Cullen/something something, but Cullen had something come up at the last minute. Anton and I already had some cocktails mixed, though, so… we went ahead and made a short video to hold you over until we get a chance to get together again.

The challenge we set for ourselves for this video was to find or create two Werewolf horror film themed cocktails each, then consume and compare notes. Anton, as it turns out, is very, very good at this. I, apparently, am not. I’ve included all four recipes under the video. Anton’s sound delicious. Mine taste like death.

Seriously. So bad. I have never left a drink unfinished on this series. Not once. Until now. Both of these went down the drain, and it required several Scotches neat to cleanse my palate afterward.
