The final cocktail in my “nerd” series is dedicated to Dr. Walter Bishop from the show Fringe. Fringe is definitely one of my favorite shows, another family favorite. Walter Bishop is a big reason why I love the show, so it only seemed right to fashion a drink in his honor. If you’ve ever watched the show you know that Dr. Bishop has a very special relationship with food, especially sweets: twizzlers, pudding, flan, & the Strawberry Supreme. In the episode “Firefly”, there’s a good bit about Walter’s favorite strawberry milkshake. So that’s where I started.
The Supreme is a bit of a mash-up: milk punch meets tiki meets milkshake. I used canned coconut milk for it’s thick consistency & strawberry syrup for a more concentrated strawberry flavor. I also just realized that each of my nerd cocktails has been made with rum! Total coincidence, apparently I’m more of a fan of rum than I thought I was, ha! Anyways, I had a lot of fun with this one. I even made one with raspberry syrup that was just as good. It’s sweet, creamy, & smooth. An adult milk shake for sure, I hope Dr. Bishop would approve. I’d love to know if you try it!

.5 oz strawberry (or raspberry) syrup
