While anxiously awaiting the return of the Doctor in 2011’s Doctor Who Christmas Special “The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe”, the gang here Sound on Sight’s Doctor Who Podcast have decided to give this whole yuletide joy thing a try this week by revisiting all the Christmas Specials since the venerable show was re-launched in 2005. Join Eric Mendoza, Linsay Wood, Beverly Brown and Derek Gladu as we look back at the David Tenant era of Who with “The Christmas Invasion” and “The Runaway Bride”.
Celebrate the Who-lydays with A “Sonic Screwdriver” .
For fans wanting to whoop it up Who Style over the holidays, our gang of four highly recommend “The Sonic Screw Driver” invented by Liz Mulhern of Omaha Nebraska, named after Doctor’s favorite get-out-of –trouble-in-a-jiffy gadget. Inspired, but relatively simple to create, the recipe is a twist on the traditional screwdriver (Vodka and orange) but uses Vanilla flavoured Vodka, Blue Curacao, and clear lemon/lime soda ( such as 7up or Sprite) in place of orange juice. The end result is citrus flavored vodka beverage that is sweet, bubbly, with a decidedly sci-fi blueish hue that is the perfect “companion” drink for an adventure with our favorite Timelord.
For one serving
1 1/2 oz vanilla vodka
1 1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
6 oz lemon-lime soda (Sprite or 7up, essentially)
Half-fill a clear 12 oz. glass with ice. Pour 1.5 oz Vanilla Vodka, 1.5 oz Blue Curacao, and 6 oz. clear lemon/lime soda over the ice. Stir lightly.
Happy Holidays Whovians and a Merry New Year!
