Blog series: TV Show Drinking Games and Signature Cocktails. The game’s designed to be fun whether you’re catching up on one episode or settling in for a good binge watch (but uh, no binge drinking please. Binge drinking is bad).
Up next is the on-again, off-again, can’t-quite-quit-it show that is Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! Fair warning: the drinking game may contain minor spoilers for Season 1, but let’s be real: you can pretty much skip Season 1. Or start with the episode directly before the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Annnnyway, the themed cocktail is:
You’re not sure exactly what it is, but you know it’s dangerous.
This one requires a bit of setup, but it’s SO worth it. It’s a pineapple/jalapeno margarita, and it’s insanely delicious.
- One batch of jalapeno-infused tequila.
I used this recipe from Foodie Misadventures. I made a half batch using 1.5 jalapenos in 400 ml of tequila, because I only had small mason jars. This made for an intensely spicy margarita, and I loved it. But if you want something subtler, maybe reduce the jalapeno. It’s simple, but it needs to be started at least two days in advance.
- One batch of Sriracha salt for the rim
I found a great recipe on Buzzfeed. This involves baking for one hour.
For the drink:
Foodie Misadventures has a recipe, but I prefer Triple Sec to Grand Marnier and I wanted the lime juice to have a stronger presence in the margarita, so this recipe is a variation on Ina Garten’s recipe here.
- 1 part jalapeno-infused tequila
- 1 part Triple Sec
- 1 part lime juice
- 1.5-2 parts pineapple juice
- Pineapple/jalapeno garnish (if desired)
Spread the Sriracha salt on a plate and wet the rim of the glass with one of the cocktail ingredients (I used pineapple juice, because it’s sticky). Dip the glass upside down in the salt and repeat until the edge is adorned.
Combine the jalapeno-infused tequila, Triple Sec, lime juice, and pineapple juice with ice in a cocktail shaker. Pour the drink into a glass, garnish if desired, and get ready to play the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. drinking game!
