That's a clip from the film The Blues Brothers. And these things are hard to figure out exactly, but it's probably the movie quote that I've used more than any other in my lifetime. From the time that I started frequenting bars, especially if I was there with two friends, this quote reared its fabulous head. And you definitely have to include the little whirly hand action that John Candy does so well up there.
Which brings us to a question. What the fuck is an Orange Whip?
I found out with a quick Wiki search that Candy wasn't actually ordering an alcoholic drink in that clip. There was a bottled non-alcoholic drink called an Orange Whip back then. In fact, the line was ad-libbed by Candy because someone working in costumes on the flick was the daughter of the Vice President of the Orange Whip Corporation who had been providing refreshments to the cast during production. She approached John Landis about dropping the product name into the film and he agreed to let Candy ad-lib a line. Pretty cool if you ask me.
But I knew that there was an alcoholic (hehe) drink that went by that name as well. And without further ado...here's the recipe via Drink Mixer:
- 4 oz orange juice
- 1 oz vodka
- 1 oz rum
- 1 package cream
That's right. A whole package of cream. What the fuck is a package of cream? I honestly have no idea. But I saw this exact recipe on several sites. Wikipedia says to just use heavy cream and blend the fucker up like a milkshake. But I'm left wondering about that package of cream. What the fuck?
Anyone have any clues?
