Celebrity Interview with Alie & Georgia AND Irish Cereal Bomb

If you haven't been living under a rock for the past two years, you've seen the McNuggetini video by Alie & Georgia. And if you have been living under a rock, What's it like? Who's your decorator???

But seriously, if you've somehow managed to live this long without seeing it, WHOOMP! Here it is:



Obviously we have just a tad bit in common with these illustrious ladies, so we thought it might be fun to interview them! And we were right, it was a blast!

Fashionably Bombed: So we're really impressed with everything that you guys have accomplished. We would literally kill for our own show on the Food Network (not you guys, of course!) How did this all happen?
Alie & Georgia: We've been friends for a long time, although not as long as you guys- we didn't emerge from the same womb! But we started hanging out all the time once Georgia moved to LA. One night we were joking about wanting a drink, dinner and chocolate all in one, and the McNuggetini was born! So we filmed it, put it up online, and then it started getting a huge amount of hits.

FB: We have to know what it was like getting "THE" phone call from The Food Network!
A&G: The funniest part about it was that it wasn't actually a phone call, it was a facebook message!
FB:Wait! Really???
A&G: Yeah, we asked each other, "Did that creep just facebook us and say he was from The Food Network?"

FB: Then what happened?
A&G: They came to us and asked if we wanted to make six videos, and we sent them so many show ideas that they came back and said, "How about twelve videos?"
FB: Sweet!

FB: So you are probably two of the only people in the world who can relate to this problem, but we've found that working on cocktails day in and day out has left us with absolutely no desire for a cocktail at the end of the day!
A&G: Yeah, guys will ask us out on dates and say, "Hey! Wanna go get a cocktail?" and we're like, "NO!"

FB: So if you two were going to create a Fashionably Bombed cocktail, what would go in it?
A&G: Goldschlager and caviar with a foie gras rim.
FB: MMMMMMMM! We are SO down with all of those things!

FB:And last but not least, what do you ladies think about an Alie & Georgia/Fashionably Bombed collaboration?
A&G: Yes! We can get four coordinating outfits! Or we can do a parody of you and you can do a parody of us!
FB: BRANG IT!!!

And in honor of both Alie & Georgia and St. Patrick's Day, we thought we'd make a cocktail inspired by Alie & Georgia's Cereal Killer Cocktail, but ours is authentically Irish because it has Lucky Charms!!!





Irish Cereal Bomb

Makes 1

1 oz Irish whiskey
1 oz Irish cream
3/4 cup milk
½ cup Lucky Charms cereal
Caramel sauce
A handful of marshmallows picked out of the cereal box

Soak the cereal in the milk for 5-10 minutes. Strain cereal and add milk to a shaker with ice. Add Irish whiskey and Irish cream. Shake vigorously until a frost forms on the outside of your shaker. Garnish martini glass by dipping rim of the glass into a plate of caramel sauce and sticking marshmallows to the caramel.

  2. I can't believe you could say no to happy hour! I guess it's like preparing dinner and doing little taste tasters all the while then not being hungry when it's time to eat. What a fantastic job :)
