The Panty Dropper

So back in late August my roommate, Colette, and I were unpacking and she told me about this drink called “The Panty Dropper.” So we innocently made this alcoholic concoction not realizing that we would be very drunk after half a glass. Not like we got drunk enough off one innocent glass to start stripping, however we do now understand why some frat-boys created the drink in the first place. So today, a week before closing night of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” I will share this drink recipe with you. Yes, this is what I plan to drink not-so-classily out of very large mason jar on Saturday night. All actors out there will understand the magnitude of a closing night party. Arlie and I have shared many stories about our various closing night shenanigans. For those non theatre people out there, it’s the one night where we get very drunk and celebrate a job well done after 6 weeks of hell.

So “The Panty Dropper” sounds disgusting. But if you feel the need to get drunk fast, it’s a great way to go. This recipe is enough to make in an ice tea container.

“THE PANTY DROPPER”

Ingredients:

  • A 26 of vodka.
  • A case of beer.
  • 2 cans of frozen pink lemonade.
  • A lemon as garnish (totally optional).

Instructions:

  • Start by making lemonade. Except instead of using water, use the vodka. Yes that means you add around 4 cans full of vodka.
  • Once the vodka and lemonade concentrate mixture has been stirred together add the beer. When we first made this we used Molson Canadian, but I suggest maybe spending a little more and getting something a little better.
  • Add the beer to taste. Probably around 4 cans, you want enough beer so it makes the drink fizzy.
  • Cut up a lemon and add it into the drink for looks and to add some “fruity” taste.
  • Get drunk off “The Panty Dropper.”

Well, there you go. A new alcoholic drink for you to try.

Pretending We’re Not Muggles

I swear by this recipe. Trust me, it’s worth the bother of acquiring butter flavour. It’s even vegan!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 5 teaspoons butter flavour
  • beer, rum and club soda, or just club soda

Instructions

  1. Add first four ingredients to a small saucepan on medium heat and stir until the sugars dissolve. Reduce to medium-low and stir occasionally until it comes to a boil.
  2. Take off the heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Add vanilla and butter flavour and mix.
  3. Pour syrup into the bottom of a glass, then top up the glass with beer, or a shot of rum and club soda, or just club soda for a virgin drink. I usually use 2-3 tablespoons of syrup to 1 cup of beer or club soda.
  4. Store the remaining syrup in a bottle in the fridge. It’s a thin syrup so it won’t get too viscous in the cold.

Makes enough syrup for 5-8 glasses of butterbeer.
