Purple Peep-le Eater

Purple Peep-le Eater

Are you ready for this year’s Easter abomination?

Don’t get eaten by this colorful but risky drink…

  • 1 oz Chambord
  • 1 oz Frangelico
  • 1 oz Vodka
  • peep, ribbon, balloons

Chill and shake the ingredients, close your eyes and think of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

Poo Emoji taking the world by storm!

Un-peep-lievable… An explosion of emoji popularity has been one of the hallmarks of 2016, and the “Poo Emoji” is one of the most surprising “break-out” stars. But we didn’t think it would make its way around to our neck of the woods. We were wrong!

Check out this outrageous story from Laughing Squid!

Poop Peeps? No Way!

Peep Nerds in a Beer Hot Tub

Peep Nerds in a Beer Hot Tub

If you know what this means:

<#include stdio.h>

then you’re qualified to have this drink. You also probably have a long beard and think a great way to spend a Saturday night is with your nose buried in a thick instruction manual for some kind of computer equipment that has a lot of blinking lights and noisy fans. In other words, you’re our kind of people!

Stop blogging about why one distribution of Linux is subtly better than another, (ahem “orders of magnitude” better than another), and chill out with a few of your favorite peeps. You know, soak the toes. Kick back a few brews. Lose the clothes and hang out with a few friends, just to see what happens.

(pssst! In case you think we’re “hatin'” on ya, here’s our nerd cred: We posted this message on “Pi Day“, March 14th… at 3:14:15pm… we’re on your side!)

Much love, from the Editor

When it’s the shortest day of the year, and you live in a cold climate (as your humble editors do), what are you and your peeps to do?

That’s right, it’s time for us snowbirds to migrate, so today’s peep-themed drink special is inspired by the bikers of Daytona Beach, the college parties of Fort Lauderdale, and the Vices of Miami!

Supposedly invented at some crazy Florida Tiki Bar in the 50s, this is one of those sickly-sweet drinks with no particular taste that gets mixed with all the excess flavored liqueurs behind the bar that nobody ever orders. (What, you were expecting something elegant or ‘refined’, on a website like this?)

Here’s our favorite interpretation:

  • Two cups ice
  • 1 oz light rum
  • 1 oz dark rum or aged rum
  • 1 oz Bacardi 151º to float on top
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz blackberry liqueur
  • 1 oz banana liqueur
  • Splash of grenadine
  • Slice of citrus
  • PEEP!!!

Enjoy responsibly, and remember “No means No”.

Peepa-Colada

Peepa-Colada

Line up your peeps for the last rays of summer… and get ready for this fully decadent refreshment:

  • Crushed ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup rum
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup pineapple chunks
  • Sliced pineapple garnish
  • Maraschino cherry garnish

Mix in blender, pour into a hollowed-out pineapple or coconut. Best enjoyed while inside a hot tub. With beautiful people, like you!

 

Peepdriver

Peepdriver

A peeple-pleasing twist on a classic staple beverage – great for “Thirsty Thursday”, and especially refreshing in Spring and Summer!

  • 2oz vodka, over ice
  • 2oz fresh-squeezed O.J.
  • 1 classic peep
  • 1 stirrer to impale the peep

Teriyaki Shochu Peep

Teriyaki Shochu Peep

The Japanese call it “Shochu”. The Koreans call it “Soju”. Kinda like the Russians’ “Wodka”. Or the Hillbillies’ “Hootch”.

But straight distilled grain spirits by any other name would still be Peeptastic in our book!

  • 2oz Japanese Rice Liquor
  • over ice
  • 1 slice Pink Grapefruit
  • 1 skewer of impaled peeps, assorted colors

We choose to plate this with gently steamed broccoli florets, drizzled in a Yuzu Teriyaki sauce.

Green Peepsenthe

Green Peepsenthe

The traditional drink for ear-cutting, hallucinatory, suicidal artistic types, Absenthe needs its turn through the Peep Factory.

Whether you consider the French or the Swiss to be the “original,” just be sure to use the European “real stuff.” There are some watered-down American versions with less of the trippy wormwood, the mildly psychoactive ingredient that makes it fun.

  • 2oz Absenthe
  • 1oz icewater
  • tumbler with several ice cubes
  • stir to enjoy the “luge” (transition from clear to milky-opaque)
  • do something unpredictable to the green peep

Which Came First

Which Came First
This peeptastic creation came from the “We Love DC” blog, which I believe spotted it at the W Hotel in Washington DC (?)… link to the original site is: http://www.welovedc.com/2011/04/22/seasonal-cocktails-at-pov/

Easter is big for the W with its proximity to the White House egg roll and other festivities, so the drinks started on an Easter theme. There was the cotton-candy-blue Which Came First (blue curaçao, vanilla, and heavy cream, hot pink sugar rim – and a bright yellow Peep floating in the middle) and the Cotton Tail which featured actual cotton candy

Stress Reliever Peeps

Stuck with too many leftover peeps, and not sure what to do?

Feeling frustrated that you didn’t win the “4 Gross of Peeps” contest we had in May 2011?

Those lovable marshmallows still have plenty of uses… A few hours in the freezer helped this series along:

Peepsplosion!

Thanks so much, Dave, for finding and sharing this ridiculous site I put up one night back in 2006… I’ve been a fan of your humor column since the ’90s, and if I knew you wrote about the site and got us all those visitors, I certainly would have kept it up over the years!  Aah, well, it’s back online now for 2011 (5-year anniversary).
