A Chaotic Pairing for “The Great God Pan.”

In Greco-Roman mythology, Pan is the deity who represented chaos in nature and beyond, giving us the word “panic.” While we certainly don’t want to inspire panic, we think this Pan-inspired cocktail may help subside it a bit.

PAN’S CHAOS COCKTAIL
1/2 oz Everclear or the strongest Vodka you can find
1/2 oz Cherry Brandy
1/2 oz Benedictine herbal liqueur
1 oz Bailey’s Irish cream
1 oz heavy cream

1 maraschino cherry

Shake, strain, add the cherry and serve!

For “The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb”

Try these Agatha Christie inspired drinks while you listen to the show! Whether you imbibe or not, these are sure to stimulate your “little grey cells”– à la vôtre!

HERCULE POIROT’S HOT CHOCOLATE 
(from K.J. Barrett’s blog “Literary Lunch”)
2 oz. dark chocolate, grated
1 Tbsp half-in-half
3 cups milk
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp cinnamon

A generous pinch of coarse sea salt

In a double-broiler over medium heat, stir half-in-half and grated chocolate until the chocolate is melted. Add milk and stir until thoroughly heated.

In a small bowl, stir together remaining ingredients. When the milk is steaming, whisk in the dry ingredients. Continue gently whisking until the milk begins to thicken. Pour into your favorite cups and enjoy!

Poirot loved his tisanes (herbal teas), so feel free to settle in with a lovely spot of tea because, as Christie declares, “Coffee in England always tastes like a chemistry experiment.”

Pro-tip: Poirot preferred his “une tisane” with three spoonfuls of sugar because life is short.

THE KING MEN-HER-RA
30 ml green Creme De Menthe
30 ml White Creme De Cacoa

30 ml Single Cream (or Heavy Cream for those of us not in the UK)

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker full of ice. Shake, pour, and solve some mysteries!

See you at the show!
