Bottom Shelf Mixology: Vom Collins

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".  

Vom Collins

  • 2 oz Fleischmann's Gin
  • 3 Tbsp Powdered Lemonade Drink Mix
  • 1 tsp Light Corn Syrup
  • Seltzer Water
  • Lemon Hard Candy Stick
  • 1 Queen Anne Chocolate Cordial Cherry (just the cherry from the inside)
  • Ice
Start by putting the gin, powdered lemonade drink mix, and corn syrup in your shaker with some ice, and shake until the ingredients are well mixed.

Strain it into a tall glass, and top it off with the seltzer water.  Garnish with the candy stick and the cherry from the chocolate covered cherry.

Drink while listening to your favorite Phil Collins song, and eventually you will be able to feel it coming in the air.

Oh Lord.

Oh...Sir! The Insult Simulator & The Hollywood Roast (Switch(reviewed), Steam, iOS, Android)
Developer: Vile Monarch
Publisher: Gambitious
Price: $1.99, $2.99

Mr. J. Shufflebottom was walking by the lake when he came across a dead body beneath a tree.   Mrs. Maggie was standing next to it, and Mr. Shufflebottom immediately began questioning her as to why she murdered the man.  She denied it, and he decided to get her to confess by wearing her down by hurling insults at her.

"Your wife has worse hair than you and goes around murdering people!"

"Your face probably murdered your husband!"

Meanwhile, in Hollywood, Dirty Potter confronted Jane Blunt in a casino for stealing his chips. 

"Your last plastic surgery was ruined by your iconic costume and peruses manga, and I mean that in the nicest way!"

"Your red carpet dress will have to face a shorter version of Benedict Cumberbatch!"

Welcome to the Bottom Shelf Munchies video series!  Our Bottom Shelf Crew is dumb enough to try out these odd treats just so you don't have to!  What have we done?

We're starting the new year out the Bottom Shelf Way™: with Disappointment!  Jackfelgar and Josh joined me to try out the Orion Moist and Chewy Cakes, and they were such a letdown.
