Peep Eraser

Peep Eraser

Perfect for Memorial Day parties, this college classic never gets old. Or, if it does, I can’t seem to remember it.

  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz Kahlúa
  • 1 oz club soda
  • 1 reckless peep
  • 1 drinking straw
Pour vodka into a short, wide glass.  Next is the trickiest part – with the glass on table, very gently pour in a little Kahlúa.  To get the “layer” effect, it must be added extremely gently.  The best way is to hold a spoon in the glass, just above the surface of the vodka, and pour the tequila onto the spoon, letting it trickle down.  The Kahlúa is heavier, so it will sink below the vodka.  Think “eye-dropper”, it really has to be that slow.  You may be able to use the edge of the glass to help.
Once you’ve got those two layers, do the same thing with a little bit of club soda or seltzer.  Viewed from the side, you should be able to see all three layers (the vodka will be swirly).
Don’t forget to add the peep, for moral support.
To drink this peepcoction, hold the straw vertically, lean over the glass, and put a straw all the way to the bottom.  Suck the entire drink through the straw all at once — you’ll have a great view, as the dark Kahlúa disappears and the drink turns clear.  If you do it all at once, the first thing you taste is coffee, and the club soda at the end will clear and refresh your palate.
Just don’t have too many…

100 Ways to Cook with Tequila

There is no better time to celebrate the wonders of tequila than mid-spring, that festive portion of the year when Cinco De Mayo comes to call! Cinco is the ideal excuse for a night of debauchery. However if you, like me, crave a year-round “south of the border” journey for your tastebuds without the shame spiral and permanent liver damage, these tequila-based recipes are just what the doctor ordered! That and some anti-cirrhosis pills. (Do they make those? They should. I’ll look into this for everyone. You’re welcome.) Ole!

Great site, and all the better for featuring the Tequila Peeprise!

Peepover Cure

Peepover Cure
  • One raw egg
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • Peep to keep you company
If you’ve enjoyed a few too many PeepDrinks, the next morning you’re likely to be looking for a cure.  And we have one!
Of course it’s best if the eggs are free range organic, and for the hot sauce I heartily recommend “Psycho Bitch” mango habañero, brand, with the tagline “PMS in a bottle”)
By the way, don’t actually try to take a shortcut and simply eat the habañero, else this may happen: If you fancy the hot sauce, I recommend shopping — this is not a paid endorsement, I just love the vendor!

  • 2oz Vodka
  • 1oz Cointreau
  • 1oz Cranberry
  • splash of OJ
  • splash of Rose’s Lime
  • 1 very sophisticated marshmallow peep
Mix as a martini, add pretense, garnish with peep.

Peep Sebastian

Peep Sebastian
  • 2oz Wray & Nephew’s 151°
  • 1oz Chambord
  • 1oz Blue Curaçao
  • splash of cranberry
  • 1 marshmallow peep
  • numerous piercings
In honor of our goth friends at Absolution, we present this overproof overpierced special… Imbibe with caution, and away from open flames!

Ear Royale (Valentines Day option #2)

Ear Royale (Valentines Day option #2)
  • 5oz Champagne
  • 1tsp Crème de Cassis
  • 1 Pink Rabbit Peep

Just use the tiniest dash of Cassis; the currant syrup is so strong it can easily overpower the drink.  Best to first pour the Champers, then tilt the glass and gently let just about a half-teaspoon of it slide to the bottom.

Mixed properly, the colors should transition beautifully from the bottom to the top.

Normally I am of the Cult of the One True Peep (yellow chick), and I really don’t acknowledge Apocryphal False Peeps (other colors or animals)… but for V-Day I thought the Kir Royale was just too perfect a drink, and it needed a proper peep-friendly equivalent. (counterpeep?)

Enjoy!  And remember to send us your own inventions:

Peep Love (Valentine’s Day option #1)

Peep Love (Valentine’s Day option #1)

Equal Parts:

  • Hennessy
  • Alizé
  • Club Soda

Two pink peeps, stuck together

    Based on the noxious nightclub drink “Thug Love”, this one mystifies me.  Alizé, in case you aren’t familiar, is cheap brandy mixed with sticky-sweet fruit juice… sort of like a wine cooler, but with a special grade of liquor so awful even the homeless won’t drink it.  And then the drink is mixed with Hennessy?  (Some Henny is ok, but this drink is made from the very worst).

    So, it’s about as silly as mixing a “wine cooler” with wine.  No wonder they have to add the club soda to make it tolerable. I have no idea what “thug” would be caught anywhere near this drink, except maybe as the beginning of taking advantage of someone underage…

    Don’t try this one at home.  But at least the peeps are cute!

    Tequila Peepshots

    Tequila Peepshots
    • 1 bottle tequila
    • 1 rack of peeps
    • 1-2 lemons or limes
    • small bowl of coarse salt

    Which is better as a chaser?
    Citrus or Marshmallow?  Lime, Lemon, or Peep?

    Try both, and then you decide! Comment below to tell us your vote….

    Either way, beware of the aftermath that may ensue — could be unhealthy for the peeps! Here’s what happened to ours, when we tested in the “lab”:

    Blood Bath and Beyond

    Awesome, I haven’t seen that before.

    In other news, real men drink peep.

    Does it concern anyone?

    Does it concern anyone that is also promoting its (not it's) sister site Not that the new site is available yet, but does the world really need marshmallow animal porn? Oh wait, silly question.
