Bottom Shelf Mixology: The Glaive

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".  

In honor of RiffTrax Live: Krull, I have created a brand new BS Mixology recipe: The Glaive!

The Glaive is based on a drink recipe I found called 5 Keys.  Because, you see, the Glaive in Krull has five blades, and it will probably make your insides feel like they were sliced up by a bunch of blades... you guys get where I'm going with this.

The Glaive (5 Keys)

  • 1 oz Fleischmann's Whiskey
  • 1/2 oz Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 oz Angostura Bitters
  • 1/4 oz Maraschino Cherry Liquid
  • 1 Maraschino Cherry

To assemble The Glaive, simply pour the four liquid ingredients into your shaker.

Pour from the shaker into your glass, and add the final ingredient: the maraschino cherry!

Whatever you do, do not try to sneak this into the theater before seeing RiffTrax Live: Krull.  That would be a very bad idea.

You should, however, drink a few of these if you ever watch Krull un-riffed.  You may remember this movie being cool, awesome, or even radical from when you watched it as a kid, but it's really not any of those three things.
