Week 116 Spotlight: Going Ben Linus on your hatch

This week, we are shaking things up a bit. In honor of Lost‘s impending final season, Joel Murphy and Lars have invited Chris Kirkman, HoboTrashcan’s resident Lost expert, on to discuss the show. Ben Linus himself, Michael Emerson, described Kirkman’s recaps as “one of the smartest articles I’ve ever read about what goes on on our show,” so needless to say, the guy knows what he’s talking about.

Joel and Lars, of course, do not. But much like Hurley on the show, they are here this week to represent the common man and to interject with their amusing comments. And to get plastered.

You see, like he does every week in his recaps, Kirkman is providing us all with a show-inspired drink recipe:


  • Bourbon
  • Ginger brandy
  • Sweet & Sour mix (or a real citrus mix)
  • Ice

Combine equal parts bourbon and ginger brandy (or ginger beer, or even ginger ale, if you’re hard up – something with a bite), half as much sour mix, all over ice. The recipe can be tweaked, with ginger beer substituted, or with vodka instead of bourbon if you want more ginger flavor. Also, a good variation is using hot ginger tea, combine that with the brandy, add bourbon to taste.

So pour a nice tall one and enjoy the show.
