I’ll Drink To That: American Idol Cocktail Countdown

April 5th, 2006

Wanna get me wasted? Here’s your chance!

Here at the haus, we love us some American Idol. Sometimes the performances really touch us and we’re driven to laugh, cry, smirk or smile. Most often though - after enduring 60 minutes Paula’s bad hair and the contestants’ bad vocals - I just wanna drink.

And here’s where I need your help.

On the night of the finale I’m going to attend an American Idol party. At said shindig I will be toasting with a tasty beverage of your choosing.

That’s right. I said you’ll be getting me (and about 10 of my foolish fabulous friends) trashed.

Here’s how it works: Starting today, for the next 8 weeks I’ll have a poll posted here at the haus. Each week, you vote for your favorite drink. The drink with the least votes gets kicked out. At the end of 8 weeks, the last beverage standing will be the big wiener. And it will also be responsible for making me, inevitably, freak dance with strangers.

Details: Each round of voting starts when new polls are posted at 9am EST each Tuesday. Look for the poll in my sidebar (over there —->)

**You can vote once every day, so come back damn it!**

Pick my poison: Drink details are listed alphabetically below. The thing they have in common? They all contain coca-cola. We figure if American Idol can whore some coke, so can we. We’re easy like that.

  • Blonde’s Death: Rum, red wine, coke, ice
  • Carmel Coke: Butterscotch schnapps, coke, ice. | Voted off on 4.10
  • Christophe’s French 75: Sparkling white wine, cognac, lemon, coke
  • Coconut Coke: Coconut rum, coke, ice
  • Coked out Bee: Honey liqueur, coke
  • Jack-Off: Jack Daniels, coke, iced tea, ice
  • Stephanie’s Coke Lobster: Crown Royal, chambord, cranberry juice, coke
  • Vodka Swish: Vodka, soda water, coke, lime | Voted off on 4.17

Your lovely parting gift: Should you help get me trashed, you *will not* be allowed to put your hands down my pants. You *will*, however, get the distinct pleasure of saying “I did that!” while laughing your tush off at the trainwreck that will be my post-party pics.

You can also, should you be so foolish fabulous, choose to slam a few of the winning bevvies back with me, on the day of the finale.

Oh, and if you really wanna, you could post this on your blog (huzzah!):

Now that you know the basics, go get your vote on!

FYI - if you tried to get the banner before 2PM EST on 4.6.06, it probably didn’t work. Banner is now fixed. Try again please.

14 Haus Calls for “I’ll Drink To That: American Idol Cocktail Countdown”

  1. Dima Says:

    I pick anything with Jack Daniels. Me and Jack go way back. I would have his babies if I could. I want to be his baby mama! I LOVE YOU JACK!

  2. Hänni Says:

    Dude Dima… if you wanna pick the JD (blech!) you gotta VOTE. Click on my poll please.

  3. Cze-Johnson Carrie Says:

    this is tough, cause I actually LIKE you, Hänni-cakes!!! if I DIDN’T like you, I’d be all voting for some nasty shit that will be even NASTIER when it comes back up or lingers in your tiny tiny body for more than 5 hours.

    now, what are the rules for your dirnking? every time Paula stands up? flips her hair? touches herself under the table when Ace sings??? perhaps when she grabs Simon’s arm pretending to be one of those hands-on-talkers, when we all know she herself is just a drunk ass and is trying ot steady herself?

    Or maybe every time Ryan flirts with Simon? or PIckler says something stupid? Every time Randy says YO?? (jesus… you’re too small to drink THAT much)

    so yeah… you need to be a little more specific, my sweet. I mean, I love me some drunk Hänni pictures, but I don’t want your ass in a coma.

    This week I’m voting for Jack, though. cause JD is my dawg, yo.

  4. Hänni Says:

    Cze-Johnson Carrie - LOL, my friend Fancypants was perusing the list going “which one is the nastiest… that’s what i’m voting for.” I had to remind him, he will be at the AI party and thus, will have to drink whatever gets the most votes.

    Rules for drinking are TBA. You got some good suggestions going there. I’ll probably post rules for play- for those who want to drink along with me - during the week of the finale, near the end of May.

    Oh yeah, and you can vote for your drink once a day. So if you’re serious about jack (and I think you are) come back for voting tomorrow.


  5. Erin Says:

    They make honey liquor!? Yum Yum!

  6. Hänni Says:

    Erin - Yeah, crazy right? Sounds pretty sweet to me…. Forgive me my puns.

  7. kerri Says:

    Hey! I voted yesterday! Even before I knew the reason for the pollage! Apparently I just like to fill in bubbles! ; ) Ok, but I shall vote again. I’m good at following directions. And I also have to ask if you have ever actually tasted “Stephanie’s Coke Lobster?” Because the thought of mixing chambord and whiskey is making this girl a wee bit nauseous.

  8. mrtl Says:

    OOoooooh! I love it!! I need to rethink my goal to include the random drink… I loves me some amaretto and didn’t know about this one. (The caramel one sounds good, too.) Oh my aching sweet tooth!

  9. Mr. Lover Says:

    I’ve tasted Stephanie’s Coke Lobster… it’s excellent.

  10. Chris Says:

    I’m voting for the Christophe’s!

  11. FancyPants Says:

    Hänni I am disappointed in the absence of vodka drinks. You are also missing the key party animal favorite Long Island Ice Tea, which is thouroughly guaranteed to slap you silly after a couple (or one if its made right). Is it too late to add? As a rule, if it were to win, I would have to insist on being the barkeep! Muhahaha

  12. Hänni Says:

    Kerri - Yes, I have had Stephanie’s Coke Lobster on many occassions. I can tell you, it’s delicious. There are some items on the poll (chosen by caucus vote) that make me wanna vomit just thinking about them, but Coke Lobster is not one.

    mrtl - Yes, you *must* have a drink with me.

    Mr. Lover - agreed.

    Chris - Heh, I wonder why.

    FancyPants - Agreed the absence of vodka was a major faux pas. I guess most coke drinks are made with rum and not vodka, so that’s how we ended up where we are. And I’ve got a variation of L.I.I.T - it’s the Jack-Off. Hmmm, we can’t *add* a drink per se, but we could replace one b/c yes, it’s agregious that we have no vodka. Stay tuned.

  13. kerri Says:

    It is appearing that the Coke Lobster is indeed coming highly recommended. And now I am curious! and will have to try the Lobster a la Coke for myself.

  14. mrtl Says:

    I am very disappointed to find the amaretto drink removed. What gives???

    I’m not voting today in protest… (yes, I realize it’s too late because it’s tomorrow where you are, but still, I protest).
