Ghostbusters’ Snackbusters

Posted by

We’re back in the kitchen, ready to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters with some delicious treats. If you’re planning your own Ghostbusters celebration, be sure to entertain your guests with Ecto-Guac and Psychomagnotheric Slime Cocktails!

Ecto-Guac

Forget Ecto-Cooler and grab some nachos instead! Determined not to cop out and just make cupcakes again (or make some kind of edible-ish slime OR that slimed popcorn that’s all over Pinterest), I needed something green and tasty to celebrate Ghostbusters. Want a scary snack (according to those who don’t have a taste for avocados)? This Ecto-Guac will (legally) fill that obligation.

Ingredients:

ghostbusters-ecto-guac-001

2 avocados
Juice of one lime (or a squirt of plastic lime because damn limes are expensive. Just don’t let others know you use the plastic stuff for fear of judgement. We’re friends here. It’s fine)
1 tomato, diced
1 green onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (or a few shakes of dried)
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch of ground pepper
1 pinch chili powder

Cut the avocados in half and carefully remove the pit with a spoon because you know damned well you are going to slice straight into your hand trying to jab that mofo out with a steak knife. Think about how large mammals (except think about dinosaurs instead) would eat avocados, poop out the pits, and then that mess would grow into avocado trees. Ponder how amazing it would be to have more avocados and dinosaurs. Would we have to share these avocados with the dinosaurs? This is getting out of hand.

Pop Quiz! What else besides Ghostbusters is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year? This Pyrex dish!

Scoop the avocado flesh out of its shell. Mash together the avocados and lime juice. Add in tomatoes, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, cilantro, and chili powder. Refrigerate for one hour, taste, and season again if necessary.

Eat with tortilla chips, like our good pal Slimer demonstrates. You could probably use your hands, though.

Psychomagnotheric Slime Cocktails

Yeah, we know the 30th anniversary moniker and #GB30 hashtag is reserved for the first movie, but the second is celebrating its 25th anniversary on Monday. So, let’s get this party started!

We thought about calling this a “Mood Slime Cocktail” because it will certainly affect your mood! If you sing to it, talk to it, and say supportive nurturing things to it, the drink will turn out perfectly and you’ll get drunk at 1 p.m. on a Wednesday. I didn’t sleep with it, though. Or did I? That vodka was deceivingly strong…

Ingredients:

The more store-brandier, the better, apparently.

Blood Orange Soda
Diet Pomegranate Soda
Cotton Candy Vodka

Pour 1.5 shots Cotton Candy vodka, two shot glasses of Diet Pomegranate Soda, and one shot glass of Blood Orange Soda into the fanciest glass you own. Proceed to day drink so you get the most out of these daytime shots on a cloudy day.

Unlike the positively charged slime in the movie, you may not wake up feeling like a million bucks. There is a strong likelihood that at some point, however, you’ll start chattering on like Ray and Janosz.

Unless, you’re an angry drunk. In which case, it’s true that you have no dick.

Well, that’s what I heard!

Anyway, the Psychomagnotheric Slime Cocktail is a winner!  It’s sweet and tasty, but don’t take my word for it.

Linz-tested, Slimer-approved.
