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!

Peep Knuckles

When I get into a scuffle, around Easter Time, I always make sure I’ve got my Peeps On-Hand. Literally.

So soft and fluffy, they’ll make anyone want to turn the other cheek!

A yummy solution to any interpersonal difficulties, especially those which arise from consuming too many PeepDrinks…

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!

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”.

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

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.

Hennessy Peep

What up? What’s happening?

How come sports people think cheap brandy is a status symbol?

Make a pyramid of cheering peep-leaders, and salute your favorite idol-of-the-minute with our latest abomination.

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…

Flaming Peep S’more

Flaming Peep S’more

We’ve been saving this one for a while… it’s Bailey’s, Kahlúa, and Absolut, on the rocks, with a fiery Marshmallow Peep!

don’t ask how many tries it took, to get this right…!

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: http://peepdrinks.com/contribute

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!

    Peeps on the Beach

    Peeps on the Beach
    • 1oz vodka
    • 1oz peach schnapps
    • 2oz orange juice
    • 2oz cranberry juice
    • 1 marshmallow peep
    Fill a highball glass with ice (or chardonnay glass, as pictured).  Add vodka and peach schnapps, then fill glass with equal parts orange juice and half cranberry juice.  Garnish with peep.

    Peeparita

    Peeparita
    • 6oz Sauza Hornitos Tequila
    • 4oz Triple Sec or Cointreau
    • 2oz Grand Marnier
    • 4oz Lime juice
    • 2tbsp Confectioners’ sugar
    • 1 row of frozen peeps
    • 1 non-frozen peep (garnishes and other extras optional)

    1. Fill a martini glass with crushed ice and cold water, to begin chilling the glass.

    2. Over a small plate or cutting board, rub the whole row of peeps between your hands until the frozen and colored sugar coating rains onto the surface below.  This will be a messy nuisance, getting all over your hands — just deal with it.

    3. Fill a large shaker with ice cubes, add tequila and triple sec first, then lime juice and confectioners’ sugar (or substitute 2oz simple syrup).

    4. Dump the icewater from the martini glass, and rub the upside-down glass in the “peep dust” to create the colored sugar rim.

    5. Carefully refill the glass with crushed ice.

    6. Shake the shaker, strain into martini glass over the crushed ice, and garnish as illustrated.
