You were the only one who could've gotten to that blood orange liquor...

Watching John Carpenter's The Thing with some friends tonight. Can you help me come up with a cocktail for it?

Last time to hang out with a friend before his baby is born, and I wanted to make it fun by pairing our movie with an appropriate cocktail or alcohol. I thought of Yukon Jack as a start, but if y'all can come up with something more creative, I'm in!

As alluded to in the title, maybe something to go with the blood test scene?

Bloody Marys in little petri dishes

Garlic and Shots in London has an awesome shotglass drink which is like a condensed bloody mary with garlic and chili - it'd be awesome and appropriate, but I'm not finding a recipe online so you might have to experiment a little to find the exact mix.

MacReady drinks J&B at both the beginning (when he pours it into the computer) and in the last scene.

I think the Brain Hemorrhage would work well...

Get dry ice and drop it into drinks and/or a punch bowl. Bonus if there are floating, unidentifiable chunks of fruit.

Float 151 on one of them and test them one by one with a kitchen torch?

Other than that, yeah J&B.

Somehow I forgot completely about the J&B connection. Though my head already hurts thinking about it.

I love the petri mary idea. Maybe with aquavit, tip o' the hat to the Norwegians.

The Brain Hemorrhage is the most disgusting visual spectacle I have seen in a long time. Well done.

For blood, you could go with a negroni.

Better yet, just one of the Petri dishes is a Negroni. Now that'd be a surprise! (If only I could get it to jump violently.

Mmm, Campari.

There're a few joints consumed as well, if your crew is into smoking out.

Anything with shaved ice.... or ice with action figures frozen in it.
