Hunger Games

Anyone else excited about the Hunger Games premier? I never really got into all the hype of crazy book trilogies; Twilight, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings. Blah… I guess it’s finally my turn to go a little nuts. I freakin loved these books and am STOKED to see the midnight showing of the movie tonight! If you’re anything like me, you’ll be toasting with an Everdeen Fizz for lunch and a Panem Clipper for dinner!

Everdeen Fizz

1 oz. North Shore Eldergin (or Plymouth Sloe gin)
1 oz. gin (something more floral than dry: PDT recommends Plymouth for a sloe gin fizz; I used St. George’s Botanivore)
¾ oz. lime juice
½ oz. mango puree
½ oz. simple syrup
club soda

Shake all ingredients except soda vigorously with ice. Strain over new ice in a Collins glass. Top with soda water. If you must smuggle, pre-mix everything but the soda and carry the soda separately for on-the-spot mixing. The current through the fence is usually turned off. Don’t tell the Peacekeepers you heard it from me.

Panem Clipper

2 ounces Calvados or other apple brandy
½ ounce fresh lime juice
½ ounce real, blood-red pomegranate grenadine
2-3 dashes absinthe
Thin strip of lime zest, for garnish

Combine liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake well until chilled, about 10 seconds. Strain into chilled cocktail glass; garnish with lime zest.

I came across a whole collection of fan-art book covers. They were all really amazing. These were my favorites!
