Drinks from Cowboy Bebop | How to Drink: I recreated all the drinks specifically mentioned in Cowboy Bebop, and improved on one of them. Hope to See you Space Cowboy…

Cowboy Bebop is probably my favorite anime, it originally aired in 1998 when I was in highschool and it really stuck with me. I’d never seen anything like it before, it was so mature, and adult, and dark and incredibly animated, it was groundbreaking stuff. In fact, in Japan only 12 of the original episodes made it past censors to air, and in the U.S. it was the launch title for Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. I’d seen anime before (Akira, Ninja Scroll, etc.) but this was the first time I’d ever seen a broadcast anime show that had the same thing going on those feature film titles did. The show follows the exploits of Spike, Jett, Faye, Ed and Ein as they bounce around on the Bebop (Jett’s spaceship) hunting bounties in a post Earth apocalypse future. It’s an enormously fun space-western noir that deals with some heavy and adult issues, and was well ahead of it’s time on representation. There’s a LOT of drinking in this show, but in doing a ton of research on it, I find only three instances of the characters enjoying any specific drinks (There is one other moment during a firefight when Spike samples a martini from a shaker and remarks that it has too much vermouth): The Cowboy, a Prairie Oyster with gin, and a hot Vodka, so let’s make em.
