When I started my research for this blog, I Googled “How many American’s have Coulrophobia” (the fear of clowns). Go ahead, give it a go. Put those innocent words into your search bar. I can tell you what you won’t find… any stats on how many Americans are afraid of clowns. What you will find? Lots of horrifying, demented clown faces popping up on your screen without warning. Now, it is fairly obvious that I have a deep-seeded hatred for the “funny” fools in makeup. So why would I choose to write a blog about the remake of Stephen King’s IT? Cocktails. Four cocktails. That is the exact number it is going to take to get me into that theater.
Here you can find four recipes to give you that little bit of liquid courage.
Georgie’s Yellow Jacket
Chill a Champagne flute and set aside. In a shaker, combine Limoncello with Cointreau and ice and shake vigorously. Strain into the Champagne flute and top with Giorgi Platino Brut. Garnish with a lemon twist.
We All Root Beer Float Down Here
2 scoops Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
1 ½ oz Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum
In a mason jar, pour the spiced rum and add ice cream. Top off with root beer and enjoy with a spoon and a straw.
Beep Beep Ichi
Kirin Ichiban Beer
1 ¼ oz Ty Ku Silver Junmai Sake
Fill a pint glass with Kirin Ichiban. Balance the sake on top of two chopsticks over the beer and serve.
- MIA Miami Weiss
- 1 ½ oz Chambord
- ½ oz Lemon Juice
In a highball glass, combine Chambord and lemon juice. Fill the glass with ice and top off with MIA Miami Weiss. Stir.
If you are wondering why I would even put myself through the obvious self-inflicted agony of seeing this movie, it is because I am a 90s kid who needs to be a part of the Loser’s Club or will go down the sewer trying.
