Eves Spiked Soda – An X-Files Inspired Cocktail

Yay!!! Another X-Files Inspired recipe! And this one has booze in it!!! (again)

This cocktail is straight outa “Eve”, the eleventh episode of the first season of The X-Files. This was the first real GOTCHA type episode, where the curveball (the twins are evil) is completely out of left field.

This episode serves to reinforce that all twins are evil. (I think that was the lesson we were supposed to take away… I think..?)

Here is the Eve episode recap via good ol’ Wikipedia:

In Greenwich, Connecticut, a girl, Teena Simmons, claims to have found her father sitting dead on a swing set with two incisions in his neck. Fox Mulder takes the case and reviews it with Dana Scully, believing the death is an example of extraterrestrial cattle mutilation on a human being.

When Mulder and Scully travel to Connecticut and interview Teena, the agents hear of another identical case in Marin County, California. They visit the Reardon residence, the scene of the new murder. They realize that despite the distance between the killings, they were committed on the same day and at the same moment.

Meanwhile, back in Connecticut, Teena is kidnapped by a dark-clothed figure. (Bum bum bum BUMMMMM!!! *ominous music*!!)

When Mulder and Scully meet the Reardons, they discover that their daughter, Cindy, is identical to Teena. Cindy’s mother tells the agents that she was conceived via in vitro fertilization at a fertility clinic in San Francisco. There, Scully learns that both the Simmons and the Reardons were treated by a woman named Dr. Sally Kendrick, who was fired for conducting eugenics experiments with ova from the clinic’s lab. Meanwhile, Mulder is contacted by Deep Throat, who details a Cold War-era super soldier program that produced genetically modified children—identified as “Adam” or “Eve” based on their genders. Deep Throat tells Mulder of a woman connected with the project who is currently kept in a mental hospital.

The agents travel to the hospital and meet “Eve 6”, who tells them that the clones created in the project had extra chromosomes which led them to display superhuman intelligence and strength, as well as homicidal psychoses. The last three clones, Eves 6, 7 and 8, were institutionalized after the project was cancelled. However, Eve 7 escaped, joined the fertility clinic as “Sally Kendrick”, and modified the ova of the clinic’s patients to create new Eve clones. Eve 8, who also escaped, is still at large.

Mulder and Scully are unable to prevent one of the escaped Eves from abducting Cindy. The Eve takes Cindy to a motel where Teena is already being held captive, and introduces the two girls to each other. The woman reveals herself to be Eve 7, who explains how she had created them to improve upon the project’s flaws, only to learn about the girl’s “accelerated development” when they murdered their fathers. The girls, in turn, poison Eve 7’s drink with a fatal dose of foxglove. When Mulder and Scully arrive at the motel, the girls falsely claim that both Eve 7 and Eve 8 were trying to goad them into a mass suicide. The agents decide to take the girls with them as they leave the scene.

That night, when the group arrives at a roadside truck stop, one of the girls sneaks out and poisons the sodas the agents ordered. Mulder realizes the girls’ plan and manages to keep Scully from drinking her soda. The agents then pursue the girls through the truck stop, with Mulder eventually capturing them. Teena and Cindy, now known as “Eve 9” and “Eve 10,” end up sharing the psychiatric ward with Eve 6 in the mental hospital. Eventually, a woman wearing a lab coat—identified as Eve 8—comes to the ward. When Eve 8 asks the girls how they knew she would come for them, the girls each respond, “We just knew.”

So there you have it! Creepy as eff, am I right?!

So, inspired by the creepy clones girls tendency to spike sodas with deadly concoctions, I decided to make this spiked soda cocktail! Now I should mention (it should be a no brainer, but it still bears mentioning) the Eves used Foxglove to spike the sodas. DO NOT USE FOXGLOVE. IT IS DEADLY. (duh).

Buuuuuuut, to mimic the intense green of the foxglove in the show, I have substituted very tasty – and very edible – Midori and vodka. Check it out below!

Eves Spiked Soda Cocktail

Diet Soda

Half Shot Vodka

Half Shot Midori

Ice Cubes

Fill a glass with ice cubes, and fill with diet soda, leaving room to top off with a shot. In a shot glass, fill with half vodka and half Midori. When you are not looking, slip it into your Diet Soda. 😉

Hope you enjoyed this latest X-Files inspired cocktail! Remember.. the drink is out there!!

    It’s scary! Eve 6, 7, 8… clones trying to poison the agents… super intelligence… it’s definitely scary, but somehow I would like to watch this episode – I just can’t watch this series alone! 🙂 Confessions, yes, I am always very scared 🙂 The drink looks good and I bet it tastes good too! Very creative!

    I love Americanisms. Soda here is soda water. I gather yours means Coke or Pepsi. I have to see what midori is.
