Our month of dragon movies continues with returning guest Julia and 2010’s animated film How to Train Your Dragon! Dreamworks’ surprisingly solid kid’s film follows awkward Viking Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his quest to tame and train his newfound dragon pal Toothless. It’s a surprisingly solid kid’s flick, and we’ve got a drinking game and custom cocktail for it – check it out!

THIS EPISODE’S DRINK: How to Drain Your Flagon
In honor of both the hearty Viking culture of the film (and our love of the pun name, which we came up with first) we centered this drink around Dragon’s Milk Stout. To give it a little bit of dragon’s breath, we infused a syrup with the VERY SPICY manzano pepper, so use caution when drinking.
Mix syrup ingredients in a sauce pan with water and reduce till thick. Cool, then mix in porter glass with stout, rye and orange juice. Garnish with lemon wheel and manzano pepper top. Be sure to sip this one, it’s got a bit of a kick.
DRINKING RULES FOR HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON:
- Whenever a character mentions a specific species of dragon
- Any time you see Toothless’ teeth
- Every time Gobber changes to a new prosthetic hand apparatus
FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:
Fishlegs yells, “Look at us! We’re on a dragon! We’re on dragons! All of us!”
