A podcast worth toasting



Drinkinggames Get ready to toss back a few stiff ones with the Stuck in the 80s gang. On Saturday, Dec. 16, we're recording a special "Drinking in the 80s" show at the Green Iguana Bar & Grille in St. Petersburg. If you're in the area and want to hang out with us, the party starts about 2 p.m.

What can you expect in this special podcast? Well, a lot of 80s songs about drinking (Rudie Can't Fail, I Drink Alone, Have a Drink on Me, etc). Plus, we'll honor and sample some of the big drinks of the 80s. Anyone still enjoy a Fuzzy Navel, Long Island Ice Tea, or - god forbid - a Sun Country wine cooler? We'll try to get some recipes for you too.

After a belt or two, expect some of our signature stories of personal embarrassment and degradation. Then who knows? Perhaps a round or two of some of the old drinking games? I'm an old-fashioned drinker who likes "Quarters," starting with "gentleman's rules" (no saying "drink drank or drunk," no pointing, no names.)

Don't worry, we'll have a designated driver. And you'll be left with the first podcast that requires two aspirin and several large glasses of water.

Long_island_ice_tea Sean's legendary Long Island Ice Tea: 1 part vodka, 1 part gin, 1 part tequila, 1 part rum, 1 part triple sec, 2 parts of lime juice, splash of lemon-flavored ice tea. (Use top-shelf liquor for this drink; if not, then substitute Coca-Cola for the ice tea splash.)

Cathy's famous Melon Ball: 2 shots of melon liqueur (Midori is always good); 1 shot of vodka; top it off with pineapple juice.

Steve's death-defying Kamikaze: equal parts vodka, triple sec and lime juice. Shake together with ice and strain directly into your mouth. Now wince and swallow.
