Recipe: Sex on the Blob & The Blob // Episode 4

In Episode 4, Pickens and I sat down to discuss the 1988 remake of The Blob, which -- in my opinion -- was and remains a practical effects masterpiece. Speaking of masterpieces, Pickens crafted a new cocktail that, for obvious reasons, was inspired by that amorphous killer from outer space. He calls it Sex on the Blob, a gelatinous drink that sure to invade your favorites list.

WARNING: Consume it -- before it consumes YOU!

Here's what you'll need:

  • Orange gelatin

  • Shit tons of citrus vodka

  • Peach schnapps

  • Cranberry Juice

  • Seltzer water

To craft this addictive spiked sludge, use package directions for the gelatin -- except, you'll also add about a half a bottle of your citrus vodka, 1/2 cup of cranberry juice, and a shot of peach schnapps.

Once it congeals, you'll cut it up and place some in your cocktail glass.

Then, you'll add a shot of vodka, a shot of schnapps, 2oz of cranberry juice, and top with seltzer water to cut the sweetness.

Now -- wait a moment. You'll notice that the sludge rises to the top, almost providing you a little dessert with every swallow of your beverage. It's not as good as sex, but it IS as good as sex might be on the actual blob. Like...it would hurt a smidge, but you'd still keep going, right?
