Nickelodeon launched a new programming block appropriately named "The Splat" on Monday night. From 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily, iconic '90s cartoons and TV shows, such as classics like Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Doug, will be featured on TeenNick.
Inspired by the recent revival, I whipped up three 1990s-tinged cocktails using drinks from my childhood: Tang, Yoo-hoo and Capri Sun. These cocktails are the ultimate refreshers for when you're catching up on CatDog and Rugrats, but don't forget your choker or cargo pants.
Chocolate on chocolate, blended to create a scrumptious beverage that's sure to make you say yoo-hoo!
1 ounce crème de cacao
1 ounce chocolate vodka
2 ounces Yoo-hoo Chocolate Drink
Pour the crème de cacao, vodka and Yoo-hoo into a cocktail shaker, then fill with ice. Shake vigorously until blended. In a chilled martini glass, add chocolate syrup and turn the glass as you pour to create a design. Strain cocktail into the glass, topping with chocolate shavings.
Capri Sun Slush
This mashup of Capri Sun, mango rum and blueberries is equal parts refreshing and vibrant.
2 ounces mango rum
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
3/4 cup ice cubes
2 ounces Capri Sun Fruit Punch
Toss everything but the Warheads into a blender and puree until smooth. In a plastic bag, crush up some unwrapped Warheads candy. Pour the cocktail into a glass and sprinkle with candies for garnish.
Put simply, it's your younger self's favorite elixir mixed with your favorite adult bubbly.
4 ounces champagne
3 ounces Tang
Lime and orange
Combine the Tang mixture, according to its package directions, and champagne in a glass. Garnish with lime and orange wheels.
