Black Mirrors and Dark Chocolates

The Buddies squeeze some Buddha’s Hand into S’mike’s take on The New Black cocktail and then explore the inspirations and hidden, disturbing implications of the much-lauded Black Mirror episode “USS Callister.”

Then it’s on to a late-night blind chocolate taste test, which  goes… not so great.

Buddha’s New Black Hand Cocktail:


  • 1/4 ounce absinthe
  • 2 ounces rye whiskey
  • 1/2 ounce Averna Amaro
  • Dash orange or Angostura bitters
  • 2 fingers of a Buddha’s Hand fruit


  • Place absinthe in a chilled old-fashioned glass and swirl to coat glass
  • Combine rye, Averna, bitters, and 1/2 cup ice in a mixing glass or a cocktail shaker
  • Stir until outside of shaker is frosty, about 1 minute
  • Strain into prepared glass
  • Squeeze Buddha’s Hand over drink to release oils and add to glass

Smorgasbord of Geeky Delights

The Buddies stay on the health train by chugging kombucha grapefruit margaritas while exploring the batshit insane history of Marvel’s least favorite son, Captain Marvel.

Mike also recounts the horrors of throwing his son two separate 4th birthday parties in one weekend, from which he is still recovering as you read this.

Black Mirror and Electric Dreams then get compared and contrasted. Mostly contrasted.
