Arrested Development Cocktails

| 4 Comments

We needed cocktails for our arrested development party, so we devised some clever drinks inspired by our favorite moments and characters from the show. I had a lot of fun all week with these posts, and I hope you guys enjoyed reading them as much as I liked writing them! Without further ado, the drinks.

Lucille's Breakfast




Instead of eating the toast on the side of the vodka, why not just put it into the drink? Just make some toast and crumble it into breadcrumbs.



Then make a martini and rim the martini glass with the toast. Toss in a strawberry for good measure.


Le Cousins Dangereux


This drink is a "relative" masterpiece of complex eroticism.



Basically it's an old fashioned(Sugar, bitters, whisky, citrus, cherry), but instead of just whisky, I used two related whiskeys, a bourbon, and a rye.


Buster's Juice




Buster loves his juice, and with this cocktail, you will too.



Any store bought berry juice, with vodka, pino nior, and soda water.


I just Blue Myself




Another simple one. Get one of those weird blue bar mixes from the liquor store. I'm not the biggest fan of these normally, but there was no other way to get this drink to be the right color.



Then just mix it with some vodka, a splash of lemon, and blueberries.


The George Sr.


George loves his ice cream sandwiches. I couldn't find a clip for this one, but the quote is "I'm having a love affair with this ice cream sandwich."  I just popped them into the blender with some Kahlua and vodka and called it a day.



This was the one fail of the night. We all thought it was gonna be amazing, but the issue was the weird chemicals in the crappy ice cream sandwiches made the texture all funky(not "funke"). If I ever made these again, I would just do a few ice cream sandwiches, and then add a few scoops of cookies and cream, then the booze.



The George Sr. was so aggressively weird that it put Kim out of commission for about a half hour!


Which one do you think you would like best?

I LOVE these posts. I'm definitely going to have a season premiere party now with some corn balls, frozen bananas, and blue cocktails! It's going to be awesome.

Buster's Juice looks dandy. I might have to make one to sip on while I ride on my lawn mower this summer.

And our Arrested Development party is now settled. Thank you for these amazing ideas!!!

Blue curacao would work wonderfully for the Blue Myself drink. It's orange flavored, which I feel would go well with the blueberries.
