Friday Night, Charlie Sheen and Bourbon Cocktails

What do you get when you cross an addictive personality, with a few cocktails, some drugs, some porn stars and a crap load of money?  C’mon…you can get this one…you get Charlie Sheen.

In case you’ve missed what’s been going on with Charlie Sheen in the last 72 hours, I will just refer you over to TMZ to read all the sordid details.  To recap the past few days activities: He’s going on a little vacation in the Bahamas with a model, a porn star and an ex-wife (yeah, that sounds like a lot of fun – not).  It seems that he can’t just leave things alone regarding his show though.  He called in to a couple of different interview shows and spouted off a bunch of negative stuff about his bosses and the show (yeah, the one that pays him $1.2 million an episode).  And because that wasn’t enough communication for Charlie, he sent a few text messages to Good Morning America and a hand written letter to TMZ further smack talking about his bosses.

You know what happens to people who talk smack about their bosses right?  Yep, same thing happened to Charlie.  His show will not be taping any more episodes for this season.  Next season?  Still up in the air.  In the meantime, he’s relaxing and rejuvenating on an island and the rest of the cast and crew is minus a paycheck for the remaining episodes that have been canned.  Way to be a team player!

Bourbon-Cocktails

I bring all this up, because Friday is the day where I post about libations.  Today I thought it might be appropriate to get back to the bourbon cocktails that I was getting into earlier.  Plus, Charlie seems like he would be in to the whiskey cocktails and not so much the vodka.  I looked around for an existing bourbon cocktails that I thought might be Charlie Sheen appropriate.  Alas, I could not find one called coked out porn addict, but I did find one called A Nap at Charlie’s.  Of course, that made me laugh because I don’t even think his poor children could take a nap at Charlie’s with all those shenanigans going on.  So I tweaked that cocktail recipe and came up with a bourbon cocktail that I’m calling Slumber Party at Charlie’s.

Slumber Party at Charlie’s sounds a bit more believable, given that 72 hour bender he went on a couple of weeks ago.  Apparently there were lots of goings on at ol’ Charlie’s house and he was not alone.  There were several people there through the days and nights and no doubt lots of “fun” activities were taking place, much like during a slumber party.  And he’s apparently a fan of the slumber party since he’s taken 3 women with him to an island for the weekend.

So break out the whiskey, it’s time to make a toast to Charlie Sheen and his dumb ass mouth.

Relationship Advice

Back in my Fried Avocados post I talked about my 80’s crushes.  And yes, Charlie Sheen was in there.  Of course, now there are a few more lines (paragraphs) to add to his little bio.

I said it before…and I’ll say it again.  If you ever want to find out what an old crush is up to now, do a little Google search.  You’ll probably be very happy with who you’re with right now.

You can always brighten my day! Coming over is like visiting my own little “Cheers”, in the best possible light.
I had the smallest of crushes on Charlie Sheen in the 80s. The big one was Mel Gibson (my first boyfriend was M. G. lookalike!). Talk about shuddering right now!
Charlie goes from stupid to stupider (I know, I know). It is entertaining in a sickening sense, but I feel sorry for his family (the small ones, at least) and the rest of his cast members.
I love the cocktail, even the PEZ (oh, ho many empty containers have I discarded on the sly when the kids were not watching!), but have to find a sub for mango (Husband is allergic, but loves his bourbon).

I think the only time I’ve liked the man was in Ferris Bueller. Besides that, I’ve never been remotely interested in watching him on screen.

Great cocktail, though. Until it gets above 50 degrees, I’m stickin’ to bourbon 🙂

Thanks Brian! This is the bourbon bomb. 😉

This sounds amazing! The drink, not the Sheen – he skerrrrrs me.

Never would have combined whiskey and mango, but you bet yer bottom I’m gonna!

like watching a train wreck . . . you know there’s going to be a collision, yet can’t quite take your eyes off the scene . . . i really do feel sorry for his children and his parents . . . oy! nice cocktail though!

I know…Charlie Sheen has officially replaced my other guilty please (Jersey Shore). I’m thinking they should do a mashup.

Charlie is an extreme example. Ed Harris turned out just fine 😉

Ed Harris is one of my “adult” crushes. Didn’t really know of him in the 80’s.

I’m not a coctailer so the use of the crushed Pez is intriguing. I haven’t had Pez candy for at least a few decades. Is this your ingenuity or am I that unhip to drink trends?

LOL! I hope Charlie has a few too many of these cocktails and quiets down for a long time! Love the drink, but, what an idiot! Can we get 1.2 mil for writing a blog post??? Do you think???
