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!
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.
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.
Recipe: Slumber Party at Charlie’s
- 2 oz Bourbon Whiskey 1 1/2 oz Mango Puree 1 oz Blood Orange Juice
- Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Cover and shake vigorously.

You can either buy mango puree or you can make your own by pureeing mango and adding a bit of water to thin it out a bit.
