In Which Georgia Gives You The McNuggetini

It Shall Be Known By One Name

by Georgia Hardstark

For a few months now, my girl Alie and I had an idea for the perfect late night/after hours snack. It started as a joke. We found ourselves hungry after last call, and seemed to be having regular cravings for McNuggets.

Alie’s obsession and constant quest to find the perfect alcoholic beverage/dinner/dessert (also see: White Russian), led us to concoct what is sure to become the new craze for the upscale watering holes.


Recipe by Alie and Georgia

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Yield: 2 servings


2 McNuggz (plus more for snacking)
1 tub McDonalds Brand Barbeque Sauce (plus more for licking off pinky finger)
1 lg. Mcdonalds Brand Chocolate Milkshake (plus more for bringing all the boys to the yard)
1 bottle Vanilla Vodka (recommended brand: Absolut)

Open the McDonalds bag. Eat one McNugg each, followed by two bites of the Filet-o-Fish (make sure you don’t tell anyone that you eat Filet-o-Fishes).

Mix three or four shots of vanilla vodka in the McDonalds Brand Chocolate Milkshake, followed by one shot each directly into your mouth.

Rim each martini glass with McDonalds Brand Barbeque Sauce, and pour milkshake/vodka mixture into the glass. Garnish with a McNugg (which is to be swiped along barbeque sauce rimmed glass after the milkshake has been finished, and consumed with pure, unadulterated glee).

Purchasing the Goods (so exciting!)





It’s bad luck to pour your own McNuggitini

Never pass up an oppourtunity to toast with a friend

Meat garnishing

After months of daydreaming, the final product is here!

“To life.”


“Oh sweet Jesus.”

Don’t vomit.

Try really, really hard not to vomit.

Try again.

Vodka makes everything better

You’re drinking a McNuggitini, it’s almost required that you act like a dork

The money shot.

The End.

  1. You’re both lovely. Your collective awesomeness has inspired me to my own thrilling gastronomical/alcoholic heights: The Cornedbeeftini: “rim” the glass with thinly sliced, 1×3 strips of lean corned beef; prepare a shake of a dollop of brown spicy mustard, a shot of Dr. Brown’s Cream Soda and the varnish of your choosing (preferably something smoky, like Wild Turkey or any good Scotch). Pour, and please enjoy.

  2. I read THIS RECORDING everyday. I also keep coming back to “It Shall Be Known By One Name” at least once a week. In the psychology world, I think I have what is known as a “cognitive hiccup”.

  3. This is so amazing. I will absolutely be serving these at my housewarming party. After which, my husband will likely leave me for trimming drinks with fried meat. OR, love me more. It could go either way…

  4. Be very afraid, ladies. The board at Popbitch (google or Wikipeida Popbitch if you haven’t yet had the dubious pleasure) last year worked itself into a communal jizzfest (and that’s even the straight female contributors) over a photo of a pretty young lady one of them had found on the web. You might like to check out the board this morning – it seems like you are heading into ‘This Year’s New Betsy’ territory. Expect years of cyber stalking by fat sweaty guys who blog with no clothes on. Hi Spank!

  5. try a little harder to look cute in the pics next time, i don’t think you look desperate enough. yea, everyone’s eyebrows belong halfway up they’re forhead.

  6. I gave up Mickey D’s about 5 years ago after seeing “Supersize Me”, however, this “nugget” of a recipe might be cause for reconsideration. lol

    Or maybe I’ll just try the vodka in the milkshake thing.

  7. Nice. This leads to many other ‘tinis. The Whoppertini, The Slidertini, The Mash Potatotini, The Thanksgivingtini, The Coney Dogtini, Pizzatini.. the list is endless.

  8. Another good drink: The Golden Nugget

    Squeeze ketchup packet on top of right hand. Hold McNugg in left hand. Hold shot of Goldschläger in right hand. Lick the ketchup, take the shot, then chomp down the chick nugg.

    For a more racy version, lick the ketchup off a pair of breasts and eat the McNugg out of cleavage.

  9. This just gave me a ton of new ideas. Gracias. I actually write about creating cocktails/shots. Not too sure about the whole barbeque sauce rim though haha, I might gag if I tasted that while drinking a vodka-ed up milkshake. That or my heart might implode.

  10. Just saw this now. Absolutely disgusting, and quite frankly I stopped paying attention and started paying attention to Georgia. So cute!

  11. OMG it is brilliant but um yuuuk lol its funny though. You girls came up with something probably no one would have i mean i wouldnt lol kinda gross though but brilliant 🙂

    Well done ladies. I loved the humor in the recipe. Awesome.

  15. Oh my goodness. What brave girls… I’ve written a quick follow-up on my Website and used one of Leah’s photos. I hope that’s okay. I did try to give proper credit. Let me know if there’s any problem.

  18. Awesome! I once made a peep-tini, it was on Easter, I was craving a martini, and candy. I shook the vodka with nerds and added a peep, with a sword through its head, as a garnish. Not very tasty, but very fun!
