Drinks for Adult Comic Nerds: Buckyberry Tea

So, I grabbed a Blackberry Iced Tea from Wawa’s the other day and thought to myself, “this would taste a hella lot better with alcohol”,  here I am with my drink concoction, Buckyberry Tea. (Thank you Sarah for your genius wordplay, as opposed to my unoriginal name of Bucky Blackberry Tea).

First you’ll need a bottle of Blackberry Iced Tea, you can usually pick it up at your local convenience store.  You’ll also need a bottle of Raspberry Vodka and Jacquin’s Blackberry Flavored Brandy.  Ice, shot glass for measuring, and a container with a lid to mix it in.

Take the ice, make half of it crushed, half of it not.  Whatever you prefer really.  I’m not a big fan of ice in my drink so I crushed mine so it wouldn’t make it too watery.  Then put it in your mixing container along with the blackberry tea.

Then you’ll need a shot of the Raspberry Vodka.  You’ll need one shot and a half of the Jacquin’s Blackberry Flavored Brandy.  Pour them in your mixing container then shake that stuff on up.

Pour it in a glass.  Add Bucky for Garnish.  Bang, ya got yourself a glass of Buckyberry Tea.

Winter Soldier Wednesday: Arts & Crafts

This week for winter soldier Wednesday the theme was arts & crafts, I whipped up a little something but first i wanted to spotlight my friend lindseycocks (irl and tumblr friend).  She’s been working on my Winter Soldier scarf since January, and she’s been only knitting for a couple of months.  Her skill level is at pro grandma knitting at this point, I can’t wait to see what she does next.  I did a little interview with her.

First Post!

So this is my first post guys!

This is where I’ll be blogging about comics, cosplay, conventions, fanart, movies, and whatever else pops into my head.  I’m REALLY excited about this, not only as a blog, but as a place to share my views and opinions on the things I love!  Whereas my Tumblr is just another place to reblog .gifs and such.

Tomorrow I’ll be reviewing comics, so please don’t throw rocks at me if you don’t like my reviews, just my opinion.

A little about myself…

My name is Courtney (I prefer to go by Court).  I’m 22 years old and live in Northern Virginia.  I frequent many conventions.  I go to MAGfest, Katsucon, Heroescon, Otakon, and baltimore Comic Con.  I also attend the D.C. Sakura Matsuri in the spring and wonder around D.C. with the thousands of other tourists trying to find the Cherry Blossoms.  I cosplay for fun, usually as my favorite characters who are relatively obscure.  I love comic books, movies, anime, music, a few TV shows.

Fun facts: my liver hates me, I’m legally blind without my glasses, and Kanye West is my motivator in life.
