We’re one week out from our birthday festivities and we thought it would be super fun to share beverage recipes that our staff and volunteers created so we can virtually toast together! Make a team here or come solo and we’ll hook you up with peeps to play with.
NOTE: Our trivia event is open to those 18 and up (sorry no youth) and the legal drinking age (in the US) is 21+.
So without further adieu…
SPECIALTY AFTER DARK COCKTAILS
THE OCTOPUS (mocktail)
Our beloved Octopus mascot was created to adorn the cover when we released UN|HUSHED: The Middle School Curricula in 2017. Since then they have been given a name and even a Facebook page. This year as we celebrate our third birthday, and Ollie’s, with trivia and a signature mocktail.
2 cups of sugar (divided)
8 cups of water (divided)
blue gel food coloring (order here and don’t forget to make UN|HUSHED your charity of choice!)
1 cup of lime juice (12 limes)
You’ll be making two batches of simple syrup for this recipe.
For the first batch boil one cup of water and one cup of sugar in a small saucepan. Stir the sugar into the sugar until dissolved. Squeeze the blue food get into the pan for 3 seconds. Let the syrup cool (you can pop it into the fridge to speed this along.) For the next batch you’ll boil two cups of water and one cup of sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves and cool.
Juice 12 limes, give or take, to get 1 cup of lime juice. Add five cups of cold water and your clear simple syrup together.
Add ice and limeade to a mason jar, then slowly pour the blue syrup down one side (be careful not to get it on the outside rim of the glass, you’ll dye your mouth, face, etc. blue if you’re not careful.)
THE FACILITATOR (cocktail)
Created to celebrate those who work so hard to bring knowledge and courage to so many. The Facilitator is the “adult” version of the Octopus created by one of our favorite facilitators, Ryan Dillon.
1 oz vodka (1 shot)
.5oz blue Curaçao
1 shot sour apple mix
1 shot sweet and sour mix
Mix 1 shot of the vodka of your choice, and blue Curaçao. Next add a sour apple mix and sweet and sour. It’s a pretty blue with a kick!
Consent for any sexual activity that happens between, on top of, or anywhere in the space time continuum in relation to the sheets must be: freely given, reversible, informed, enthusiastic, and specific. Concocted by our volunteer Gabby Reeve.
3 tablespoons brandy
1 tablespoon light rum
1 tablespoon triple sec
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons simple syrup
Pour all the ingredients into a shaker two thirds full of ice cubes. Shake well. Strained into a chilled cocktail glass.
MAIDEN’S PRAYER (cocktail)
In Shakespearean English, a maiden head refers to a hymen and the idea of virginity. Many people with vaginas are born with no visible hymen (both visible, non visible, and no hymen at birth are all perfectly normal). The hymen is a thin membrane that may cover the opening to the vagina. The hymen will typically disintegrate over time. Created by Gabby Reeve.
1 jigger gin
1 jigger triple sec
1/3 jigger lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon orange juice
Stir with ice and strain to serve.
KING’S PEG (cocktail)
Pegging is defined as penetrating a partner analy with a toy, usually a strap-on dildo. The term is often used to refer to a female identified person penetrating a male identified person. When using toys with a partner, it’s always important to clean the toy between each sex act (be it with the same partner, another, or a different evening.) Libation created by Gabby Reeve.
1 piece of ice
1 jigger brandy
Place ice in a large wine glass, add brandy, fill with iced champagne.
The vulva is the exterior part (of one particular set of genitalia) labia, clitoris, vaginal opening, and the opening to the urethra (the hole a person pees from). While vaginas are just on part of the vulva, many people say “vagina” when they really mean the vulva. Recipe created by Gabby Reeve.
6 oz fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 egg yoke (optional)
Pour all ingredients into a shaker two thirds full of ice. Shake well. Strain into an ice filled wine glass.
THE MASSHOLE (cocktail)
Becoming familiar with your genitalia and anus are important aspects of personal health. Use a mirror to check your anus and surrounding skin on a regular basis. Drink created by Gabby Reeve.
1 Dunkin’ Donuts Latte (flavor swirl optional)
As many nips of Bailey Irish Cream as you want, no one is the boss of you!
Mix and enjoy.
SEX ‘ED’ SUNSET (cocktail)
A recreation of the classic Sex on the Beach, this cocktail gives a nod to the end of hard day teaching with the colors of a beautiful sunset. Mixed by Ryan Dillon.
1 oz vodka
half a glass of orange juice
1 splash soda water
1 splash of sweet and sour
In a small glass add 1 shot of the vodka of your choice, and half a glass of orange juice. Next add a splash of sweet and sour mix and soda water. Top with red grenadine, and viola!
We can’t wait to see you on Saturday for fun and education!
