In case you haven't seen any of part of one of the most innovative promotional campaigns of all time, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens in theaters this weekend.
That's right, Ron Burgundy, America's most obtuse albeit intrepid news anchor, is returning to the big screen. Apparently, the sequel will chronicle Burgundy's foray into the world of 24-hour news. Hilarity, I'm sure, will ensue.
But so might hunger! To get you in the mood for viewing Anchorman 2, here's a Ron Burgundy-inspired menu that will help you stay classy and satiated. Note: I don't actually recommend consuming the subsequent comestibles right before the movie. Night before, rather. Why?
Because, truth be told, Ron Burgundy is more about the liquid dinner. So, start off with a shot of "scotchy scotch scotch" (I suggest Laphroaig). Then, switch gears and spirits with this creative cocktail designed by Hornitos:
1 1⁄2 parts Hornitos® Plata tequila 1⁄2 part honey syrup 1⁄4 part mezcal 3⁄4 part sweet vermouth orange twist
Combine in a mixing glass, stir and strain over fresh ice (large cubes preferred) and garnish with an orange twist.
A few more scotchy scotch scotch shots, another round of Burgundy cocktails and then you'll be probably just coherent enough to enjoy a delicious but filling burrito.
And for dessert, try your darndest to locate a carton of Ben & Jerry's Scotchy Scotch Scotch, a special limited edition ice cream issued in honor of the release of Anchorman 2.
If that's not possible, just do as the French do and conclude the meal with some cheese. Perhaps, though, not an entire wheel.
