This is a question I’ve been hearing a lot from my friends.
“What is this Doctor Who Cocktails thing?”
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, I’ve been thinking, “Wouldn’t it be nice to have a party with specially themed cocktails for the 50th?” And of course, the answer is “UH YES,” so I decided to set about trying to create a number of cocktails that had a distinctly Doctor Who flair.
A few recipes existed already online (mostly Sonic Screwdriver recipes) but when I realized that there wasn’t really a comprehensive list of cocktails inspired by The Doctor I wanted to make the project a little bigger than just me posting a Facebook status or two. That’s when my gorgeous, clever, enthusiastic girlfriend decided that we should start a blog where we post them weekly. Hopefully we can get a number of fans as excited about their 50th parties as they are about the 50th Anniversary itself!
We largely want these cocktails to be accessible to college-aged Whovians who may not have the money or know-how to purchase or create exotic alcohols (we’re pretty broke, ourselves). Although many recipes will undoubtedly require you to go and purchase new booze or mixers, there shouldn’t be anything too expensive or difficult to find, save one or two unique recipes. A vast majority of these ingredients can be picked up at your local liquor store, and anything else can be found at the nearest BevMo.
