Peppermint Patty from Archer

I realize the Peppermint Patty isn’t a particularly unique drink to make in this crazy, weird realm of “making stuff from popular culture”. I’ve seen quite a few others recreate this drink, however in those instances things like whipped cream and shaved chocolate were added. Don’t get me wrong, whipped cream and chocolate are delicious, but they aren’t referenced as part of the drink by Archer in this episode.

One thing that I can infer from the Peppermint Patty is that Archer, being a stickler for the finer things in life, would not tolerate ready mix cocoa in his drink. Which means it’s time to make some homemade cocoa and then add a bunch of booze to it!


Hot Cocoa

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup cream
  • Salt (optional)

Peppermint Patty

  • Hot cocoa
  • 1/2 oz creme de cacao
  • 1/2 oz creme de menthe
  • 1 oz peppermint schnapps


Hot Cocoa

Mix cocoa, sugar, and salt, with a small amount of cream to dissolve the ingredients while cooking over low heat. Slowly add the remained of the cream and warm over medium heat until thoroughly combined and hot.

Peppermint Patty

Add liquors to the hot cocoa and shake well to combine. Serve immediately or store in a thermos for your next mountain climbing “vacation”.


I’m not a huge fan of overly sweet alcoholic beverages that don’t include tiny umbrellas. So I guess I’m actually not really a fan of chocolatey alcoholic beverages? Anyway, this was fine but there’s no way I could drink enough of these to really feel much of anything. Except perhaps a subtle sense of calm, warm feeling; feet up by the fire as snug and cozy. Eh, maybe these drinks aren’t so bad after all.

Try to recreate the experiment done with the cow in the ATHF episode Revenge of the Trees

Use an enormous piece of steak stuffed with pork and ranch dressing to inject cheese

Maybe also do some of the dead guy ice cream flavors in The Simpsons

I feel like this is a sarcastic comment

There actually was a man who got into trouble for recreating it right down to using an entire cow

Matthew Morelli


For authenticity make sure you have pork and ranch dressing inside the beef as well as cheddar and pepper jack cheese

Also this may be too much of a passing reference but the first episode of Duckman mentions banana Hostess snack cakes

I really would like to see how that would turn out

If you got a deep fryer that big you may as well go the whole nine yards and open your own family restaurant, Lauren’s Family Feedbag: You’ll eat like a duck.

Grumblecakes from Homestar

Hot chocolate from The Simpsons Movie

Nacho sombrero from The Simpsons

Cookie Cat from Steven Universe

Oversized jawbreakers from EEnE

Pudding skin from EEnE

Christmas Gingerbread Village from EEnE

These are my requests

Glenn S.

You can’t ask her to make Grumblecakes! Only liars and thieves eat Grumblecakes and those people go to prison. You don’t want Lauren to go to prison do you?

Glenn S.

Well Strong Bad is both a liar and a thief and he did go to prison once so no problems there. As for Homestar who the hell knows, I mean this is a guy who it seemed willingly ate a bowl of sour cream and The Cheat hair (granted he was under the impression that it was vanilla ice cream and The Cheat hair) and then proceeded to get tricked into gleefully eating a pinecone so perhaps he’s not the best individual to draw impressions from.

Glenn S.

I don’t know much about EEnE but from a simple image search on their jawbreakers I’d be just as worried about potentially ending up like that girl from that old weird movie Jawbreaker.

Glenn S.

Lana. Lana. LANA!

I was wondering if you were gonna make the grilled cheese that Malory made for Archer when he was donked out on that mind control chip from the season 1 finale.

Glenn S.

Stone cold bitch or not, in fairness to Malory, swiss was the only cheese she had at the time. Heck I’ve made grilled cheeses with shredded taco blend and mozzerela cheese when there was no other cheese around.
And by this point, how many things could possibly be worse than that Clove Tom Collins Pie Crust thing (barring some completely inedible “I’m not eating that” dish)?

Glenn S.

Yeah but that Clove thing is undoubtably your poster child for the bad things you’ve eaten in your dedication to this blog (and I’m sure we all appreciate that dedication).


The target was from a country that in World War Two was an Axis power.
