Amazonian Leaf-footed Bug (Dicator bilenatus)
…A species of leaf-footed bug that occurs throughout South America, parts of Central America, and some Caribbean Islands. Like all coreids D. bilenatus is a herbivore and likely feeds on a wide variety of plant species. When threatened it probably is able to release a unpleasant odor to deter potential predators, like other coreids.
Hey, everyone! Michael here. For this lovely Pokemon month, I decided to honor a classic Pokemon, Sandslash, with a classic drink, the Blood and Sand. Now, I’m going to level with you, the impetus for this drink was the pun, but that’s just how I do things. And, on the plus side, it turned out mighty tasty. The biggest change I made was substitute the scotch for mezcal, because it’s still smoky, but Sandslash is reminiscent of an armadillo, so an agave spirit made sense to me.
This drink, like the original, is pretty simple. You’ll need:
- 3/4 oz. Mezcal
- 3/4 oz. Cherry Brandy
- 1/2 oz. Sweet Vermouth
- 1 oz. Orange Juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker full of ice, shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry and enjoy! It’s a bit strong and complex, so it’s definitely a sipper. If you can’t find cherry brandy or if you just don’t like brandy that much, you can easily substitute it with a maraschino liqueur (I recommend Luxardo).
I wish I were reading the printing with this cover. The one I’m reading is ugly and creepy.

Anything else you’re interested in is not going to happen if you can’t breathe the air and drink the water. Don’t sit this one out. Do something. You are by accident of fate alive at an absolutely critical moment in the history of our planet.
