RECIPE: Bloody Orangey Margey

  • 2 oz Silver Tequila
  • 2 oz Blood Orange Juice
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz charcoal agave syrup
  • Juice of 1 lime

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake until mixed and chilled. Strain into a fresh glass of ice. We recommend a salt or Tajin rim.

Charcoal Agave Syrup

Combine 1 cup agave syrup with 1 cup water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Carefully mix in 1 tsp activated charcoal (available at your local health food store), bring to a low boil for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

MEDICAL DISCLAIMER:  Activated charcoal can affect how your medications and supplements work.  Ask your doctor if you’re on prescriptions.  We’re lushes, not medical professionals 🙂

Ep. 25 – Sphincter Obsession

Show Notes

In a Hail Mary pass attempt at keeping our themes fresh at just-less-than-a-year into the podcast, we decided to talk about cursed films in this episode! Cait tells us about a movie that was so (rightfully) cursed that it never got finished, despite several attempts. Then Nick does it all for Damian by covering the bizarre circumstances behind-the-scenes on the set of 1976’s The Omen. Finish it all off with a demonic-looking margarita, and way, WAY too much about sphincters, and you have a Booze + Spirits Podcast!

RECIPE: Hair of the Camel That Bit You

  • 750 ml red wine of your choice
  • 1/4 c granulated sugar
  • 1 orange
  • 10 whole cloves
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 star anise pods
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 4 cardamom pods
  • 5 oz Goldschlager

Dump red wine into a large pot or slow cooker over low heat. Add sugar, orange slices, orange juice, and spices – you can stick the cloves into the orange slices to make them easier to retrieve.  Simmer for a minimum of 30 minutes but longer is better.  Stir occasionally.  Serve while still hot in a mug, with 1 oz of goldschlager per serving. 

This recipe has a lot of room for customization.  You can substitute a few teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice for the whole spices, if you would prefer.  I would recommend putting ground spices in a tea bag before adding them to the wine, so your drink isn’t gritty.  Not sweet enough? Add more sugar. Not complex enough? Add peppercorns, ginger, juniper berries, bay leaves, a vanilla pod… even a little chili pepper can be yummy!
