Chappy Hour: Blue Moon Cosmo + Ten-Headed Alien

May 16, 2018 by Tan Light

Pair David James Brock's Ten-Headed Alien (Wolsak and Wynn), a sci-fi, prog-rock, political mash-up, with our out-of-this-world cocktail for a celestial treat.



See more details below


Ten-headed Alien is crying out for a cosmic cocktail pairing. You could go back to our Blacklight Borealis recipe, or for the very adventurous, there’s this. But if you’re looking for a more sophisticated celestial sipper, then let me introduce the Blue Moon Cosmo. It pairs perfectly with the feature poem, "balloon Balloon BALLOON" about a robot and a blue balloon.




The Cocktail

(Plain text follows.)





What You Need:

  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 1⁄2 ounces chilled, orange-infused vodka
  • 1 ounce blue curacao
  • 1 ounce white cranberry juice
  • Sugar
  • Ice


What To Do:

1. Use a lime wedge to wet the rim of a chilled martini glass, then dip in sugar.
2. Add ice to shaker.
3. Add lime juice, vodka, blue curacao and cranberry juice; shake well.
4. Pour into chilled glass and garnish with a lime slice.


For an alcohol-free version, use orange fizzy water in place of the vodka. To get the blue colour, you can try Kool-Aid powder or the hyper-trendy Blue Pea Flower.
