Personally, that’s kind of a turn-off for me as well. And now that I think of it “kind of” is a bit of an understatement. I have nothing against people that don’t drink, but I really need a “dinner and drinks” kind of guy.
Also, I’ve been scouring the net trying to find a contact for Ms. Yee but with no luck. I really want to start a celebrity drink recipe column (think “The Diddle Skittle”) and I think she’d be the perfect person to kick it off. So if anyone has any leads that would be awesome!
I know Shark Week hardly needs any more excitement, but come on you really can’t pass up on the chance to make a drinking game out of this week-long Discovery Channel extravaganza. Alright to take part in the Shark Week Drinking Game you’re going to need a shot glass for your shots and a cup full of the mixed drink of your choice or a beer. Most drinking games usually consist of just shots, but with some of these you’re likely to end up taking A LOT of shots so instead we’re gonna mix it up a bit with shots and sips of your mixed drink.
1. Kick off with an introductory shot dedicated to Samuel L. Jackson’s character in “Deep Blue Sea.”
2. Every time the movie “Jaws” is mentioned take a sip of your mixed drink.
3. The first person to audibly express their excitement at a shark jumping out of the water takes two shots. After that take it down to one shot.
4. Take a shot anytime you see a commercial from a company that thinks they’re Australian (i.e. Fosters, Outback Steakhouse). With a high number of sharks in Australia you’re likely to see tons of commercials from these kind of establishments.
5. Take a shot anytime they show B-roll footage of a child or children playing innocently on the beach.
6. Take a sip of your mixed drink every time you see a seal, fake seal, or group of seals.
7. Whenever someone gives advice on getting away from a shark (punching it in the nose, hitting it in the eye, etc.) take a shot.
I swear one of these days I’m gonna throw an end of summer bash and have vodka-soaked gummy bears, Jell-O shots, and now Jolly Rancher vodka! Ever since I started this blog I’ve come across all kinds of creative drink recipes with Jolly Rancher vodka being the latest. Thanks to my homie Stealth I discovered this video on how to make Jolly Rancher vodka and of all the unique recipes I’ve come across in the past month this one seems like it’s the easiest and least time consuming. So now that we’ve got candy, popcorn, and Jell-O covered who wants to come up with a drink recipe involving cotton candy? If you can you will be forever praised on this blog my friend.

So while browsing the net I’ve come across a few pictures of what appears to be some new kind ofCorona. It’s in the regular Corona bottle, but instead of a yellowish hue it has more of a red one. I of course assumed that Corona was introducing some new kind of beer, but after doing a little research I found out that that’s not the case. It’s called the “Candy Corona” and it’s a regular bottle of Corona but with a splash of grenadine and vodka added to it. Apparently it’s the “new new.” I gotta be honest with you guys though, I’m sure I’ll give this a shot just to see what’s it’s about but it sounds pretty awful if you ask me.
Just the thought of Corona and grenadine is making my stomach do flips. Who came up with that? And to be honest I might feel a tad embarrassed asking a bartender to make a “Candy Corona.” I just pray that they know what it is and that I don’t have to explain to them that I want a bottle of Corona with a shot of vodka and grenadine it. That might just warrant an immediate call to AA. But I shall man up for the masses and give this very unique drink a try. Check for a review on here some time next week. And for those eager to try the “Candy Corona” check out the recipe below.
1 shot vodka
1 tbsp grenadine
1 bottle of Corona
A slice of lime
Drink your bottle of Corona a little bit past the neck. Add the shot of vodka and grenadine. Tightly cover the top of your bottle and shake to mix ingredients. Add a slice of lime.
