Clue® Game Night: Cocktail Party

One is never too old (or too young) to play Clue®. But do send your kids to bed before serving up some of these ideas for cocktails at your next Clue game night. Let the mystery unwind!

Mrs. Peacock: 1 oz. Curacao liqueur, 1½ oz. gin, ¾ dry vermouth, 3 oz. lemonade, 2 dashes grenadine syrup, 2 dashes maraschino. Layer into highball glass. Drink with snobby bourgeois nose tilt for better taste.

Colonel Mustard: 1 oz. gin, 2 oz. fresh lime juice, 1½ oz.  peach brandy, a dash of spicy Dijon mustard, 1 wedge of lime, 1 sprig mint. Add honey to taste. Shake with ice, strain into rock glass, and garnish with lime and mint. Very gutsy.

Mrs. White: 2 oz. white chocolate liqueur, 2 oz. Baily’s Irish crème, 2 oz. vanilla vodka, 1 oz. Crème de Cacao. Serve in chilled martini glass. Thanks for folding the laundry. Where's my sandwich?

Professor Plum: ½ shotglass of Japanese plum liqueur (Umeshu), ½ shotglass of fruit brandy. Layer brandy on top of plum liqueur. Ignite. Also called a “flaming plum.” Ahem.

Miss Scarlett: 1 oz. Campari, 4 oz. chilled champagne, dash of angostura bitters, 1 twist lemon peel. Serve in chilled flute, ready for seduction. Hide your husbands. 

Mr. Green: 1 oz. Crème de Menthe, 1 oz. Crème de Cacao, 3 oz. Amaretto almond liqueur, 2 oz. lemon juice. Layer in highball glass and stir. Garnish with cash and get down to business. (In the newer versions, he's a Reverend. I guess, he can just sit this one out and be the designated driver then.)

Cheers.

    Well, we’d definitely have to play the game and sip the drinks in a house with as many rooms as the game board because those cocktail ingredients scream: Sleep-over!

    Maybe today we’ll have a sleep-under (our desks)!

    I really want to try the Professor Plum, especially if it’s flaming. NOM!

    @Terrie. Maybe Mr. Body can be the (zombie?) bouncer for house guests who overstay their welcome…

    Great post! I want to try the flaming plum. Good way to intimidate the other players too.

    @ Cathy–now there’s an idea!
