Who would win in a drinking contest, Phoebus or Jehan?
Phoebus Vs Jehan
This is a difficult question. Both Jehan and Phoebus are fans of alcohol and in the book they do drink together. But when it comes to a contest who would win? I suppose it would come done to stakes, what would the win? If it’s Money I would say Jehan. If it’s pride I would say Phoebus. But if it’s a kiss from a pretty lady then either of them could win as they both love pretty ladies. I think Phoebus would ultimately win as Jehan is a slacker who hates hard work and Phoebus is more disciplined.
Phoebus (Norman Kerry) revealing Esmeralda’s bare shoulder (Patsy Ruth Miller) 1923 Hunchback of Notre Dame
So I think it’s Phoebus. But what do you think? Agree or Disagree
Frollo doesn't care for Green Cocktails
So I’m not a big drinker but I recently found a cocktail called an Esmeralda (though there are a lot of cocktails using that name). Anyway the cocktail that I found has Tequila (1.5), Angostura (Dash), Lime Juice (1 oz) and Honey (1 tbsp). I know it’s not related to Hugo’s Esmeralda but it sounds interesting. Though I have to wonder what would a cocktail inspired by the Hunchback Notre Dame Characters be like? Makes me wish I knew more abou t mixology.
I guess a “Frollo” would be dark, bitter & maybe with a hint chocolate (though we could just make a Mad Monk*), an “Esmeralda” would be Fruity (or maybe we should call it a “Gypsy Girl”), and a “Phoebus” would be some kind of beer-like drink (he doesn’t strike me as the cocktail-type). I have no idea what a Quasimodo, Clopin, Gringore, Djali or a Fleur de Lys** would be like.
What do you think? What would a Hunchback inspired Cocktail be like? Someone out there must know more about mixology than me. ^^
*A Mad Monk is Frangelico (Hazel) (1 oz), Peppermint Schnapps (1 oz) hot chocolate, hot coffee and whipped cream.
**Actually there is a Fleur de Lys cocktail, it’s Stoli Raspberry Vodka(3.oz) and Cointreau (2oz)(Orange Liqueur) (which sounds nice to me ^^)
