Bottom Shelf Mixology: Cooler's Revenge

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology!  We have racked our brains (and our livers) to come up with special "bottom shelf" versions of popular drinks, and some original creations that range from "oh, that might be interesting" to "that sounds absolutely disgusting".  


Cooler's Revenge (Amaretto Cooler)

  • 2 oz Amaretto
  • 3 oz Diet Cranberry Juice Cocktail
  • 2 oz Tangy Citrus Punch
  • 1 Lime Popsicle (melted)

Get a tall glass, set it down, and talk to someone for 20 minutes.  Pour in the amaretto, and talk some more.  Follow this pattern with the rest of the ingredients, then stir them together for a few seconds.  This whole drink that would normally take 2 minutes to prepare should end up taking you an hour and twenty minutes.

Put on your Goku pants, and drink.

Repeat for as long as you can stand.

Short Reviews of RiffTrax Shorts: Tommy's Day

It's Short Reviews of RiffTrax Shorts, our new series where the title is almost as long as the actual reviews!  We are going to take a look at every RiffTrax Short in the catalog, and write a very brief review on them all.  This is going to take a while.

(Released March 27, 2019)

Oh hai loose tooth!  This is a story about Tommy and his sister Peggy.  Tommy wakes up after his sister holds his nose closed until he can't breathe.  When he is startled awake, he notices he has a loose tooth, and shows Peggy, who is immediately jealous.  Then we get to see Tommy going about his Day, and how excited every other person in this short is about his loose tooth.

Short Reviews of RiffTrax Shorts: RiffTrax Live 2019 Kickstarter Final Hours Mega Special

It's Short Reviews of RiffTrax Shorts, our new series where the title is almost as long as the actual reviews!  We are going to take a look at every RiffTrax Short in the catalog, and write a very brief review on them all.  


This year's Kickstarter is wrapping up in just a few hours!  There are still plenty of stretch goals to unlock, and we need your help!

Current stretch goals left as of 5 PM EST.
The remaining goals are all based on the number of backers, so even if you just donate $1, you can help unlock these goals.  Oh, and you will also get ten RiffTrax Shorts!

Today, we are going to be taking a look at those ten Shorts, and since this is a special occasion, I've enlisted the help of fellow RiffTrax Superfans Kevin Smith and Dave Chadwick to help!

RiffTrax Shorts: Emergencies - What Would You Do?

What would you do if a little child ate bleach powder?  Do you know what you would do if you fell off a dock when you can't swim and there are plenty of adults nearby?  How about if you were out to dinner and some shady guy was following around a teenage girl?  Wait, I'm thinking of What Would You Do? with John QuiƱones.

Anyway, Emergencies - What Would You Do? sets out to give a few examples of what you should do when one of your friends decides to shake hands with danger.

Bottom Shelf Mixology: Wasp Nest

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology!  We have racked our brains (and our livers) to come up with special "bottom shelf" versions of popular drinks, and some original creations that range from "oh, that might be interesting" to "that sounds absolutely disgusting".  


Wasp Nest (Stinger)

  • 1 oz Fleischmann's Whiskey
  • 1 oz 99 Peppermint
  • Red Pepper Flakes (optional)

The Wasp Nest is a rather straightforward recipe.  All you need to do is put the whiskey and peppermint schnapps(is the 99 brand schnapps?  I guess I don't really know what to call it, so we'll stick with that) in your glass and mix it up.

If you want the full force of drinking an actual wasp nest, add the optional red pepper flakes. 

On a somewhat related note, when I was in Kindergarten, I got stung on my tongue by a wasp after inadvertently eating it.

That's all you get of that story for now.  You'll have to check out the video for this recipe when it hits YouTube to get the rest of the story.
