Dr. Horrible Cocktail Set
Freeze Ray - Dr. Horrible:
1 oz Vodka
1.5 oz Creme de menthe
Sprite (~5 oz)
Directions: Fill a highball glass with crushed ice. Add in the alcoholic ingredients and fill with Sprite (around 5 oz). Stir, serve and stop the world.
“This is the one. Stops time. Freeze Ray. Tell your friends.” - Dr. Horrible
The Hammer - Captain Hammer:
1 oz Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1 oz Canadian Whisky
1 oz Peach schnapps
Directions: Mix alcoholic ingredients in a lowball glass over ice. Fill with your favorite root beer. Flex, serve, and be awesome.
“I don’t go to the gym, I’m just naturally like this.” - Captain Hammer
Crazy Random Happenstance - Penny:
1/2 cup Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
2 oz RumChata rum cream
.5 oz Amaretto
4 Ice cubes
Directions: Set aside one strawberry and blend the rest of the items. Pour into a large glass and garnish with the remaining strawberry. Serve and stay positive.
“We would be able to provide 250 new beds, get people off the streets and into job training so they could… buy rocket packs and go to the moon and become florists…” - Penny
Notes: I had a ton of fun creating these drinks. Two years ago I saw Dr. Horrible on a whim and fell in love with it. I am anxiously awaiting the sequel!
Freeze Ray - To keep with the freezing theme, I wanted to have a drink with lots of ice and a minty flavor.
The Hammer - What is there to say about the Captain Hammer? He’s strong, not too bright, and kind of a wimp without his powers. The Captain Morgan and whiskey make a strong drink, but the peach schnapps reveals a hidden layer under the hardness. Be careful, as this cocktail might be sweet, but it will hit you like a hammer.
Crazy Random Happenstance - I couldn’t make a drink for Penny without including frozen yogurt. I’m very happy with how the glass I used is similar in size and shape to a frozen yogurt cup. This drink is sweet, innocent, and a perfect treat to give to a laundromat buddy.

Godot’s Special Blend #12 (Phoenix Wright cocktail)
6 oz. Coffee (9-Bit Mega Coffee from Loading used)
1 oz. Cinnamon infused spiced rum
3/4 oz. Irish cream
1 splash Chambord
Directions: Infuse your spiced rum with cinnamon cloves. Make your coffee, preferably fairly strong. In an Irish coffee glass, mix all ingredients and stir.
Spoilers for Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations below.
Godot takes pride in his coffee blends being extremely hot, dark, and bitter. However, he has been known to serve coffee to others with cream and sugar, especially in times they needed comfort. I tried to create a blend that I thought Godot/Diego would mix up for Mia Fey. Though the coffee is strong, the combination of the Irish cream, cinnamon, and the hint of raspberry makes it nice and smooth. The blend is #12, as 2012 is the year Godot/Diego and Mia first met at the Grossberg Law Offices.
