THE SIDEWALKER SHOW – with Adrian Roberts

with Adrian Roberts
Transperson and Founder of Bootie Mashup

“Ask a Drunk Transgender!” Just in time for President Donny’s big ban on transpeople in the military for no reason, we sit down with Adrian Roberts, one of the first people in the US to officially register as gender non-binary.  (She was number 14.  Not bad.)

Hear Adrian give the inside word on gender transition, fluidity, liking both boys’ and girls’ toys, and the joys of German beer.   Yes, our cocktail is a hefeweizen-based beer concoction with vinegar and lemon juice called the Sidewalker.  Shockingly, it’s damn delicious, and not at all a bad revenge plot by the Bavarians.

Also: Do you know the difference between Bananenheizen and Scheissehosen??

You had better, my friend.  You had better.

The Sidewalker

We’ll be dead honest, we got this one from a little site called Crafts on Draft, who claim it came from bartender Damon Boelte at Prime Meats restaurant in Brooklyn.    We’re quoting verbatim here, mostly because we’re lazy.

Ingredients: (Makes one cocktail)

  • 1 ounce apple brandy (such as Laird’s)
  • ¾ ounce lemon juice
  • ½ ounce maple syrup
  • ¼ ounce apple cider vinegar
  • hefeweizen
  • Lemon wedge, to garnish


Pour the brandy, lemon juice, maple syrup and vinegar into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake. Strain the cocktail into a chilled, tall glass and top with beer. Garnish with a lemon wedge.

Adrian Roberts is one of the founders of Bootie Mashup, one of the best sources for dance mash-ups and mash-up themed dance parties in the country.  Go check it out for free music downloads, club dates, and general bootiliciousness.

When we first heard about the Sidewalker, we were… OK, we were afraid.  We were flat-out scared of what a cocktail with beer and vinegar would do to our souls.

So as promised,  so here is the text conversation between Buck and Shaft in all of it’s incredulous glory.




Finally, here’s our show slug again, so social media doesn’t attach that conversation to any shared post, because apparently that’s how this bullshit works.

The Blue Hawaii Cocktail

  • 3/4 oz. Light Rum
  • 3/4 oz. Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
  • 3 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz. Sweet & Sour Mix (Making your own is better, and not that hard.)
  • A cherry, a wedge of pineapple, and one of those tiny umbrellas. (If you want to do it right.)

Combine all the liquid ingredients (not the fruit and the umbrella, asshat) in a cocktail shaker, or blend in a blender (or anything else that blends) with ice.  Serve in an appropriately Tiki-like glass.  Stab the fruit with the umbrella and garnish.  Drink.  Think of simpler times.

And the Blue Hawaiian Cocktail

  • 3/4 oz. Light Rum
  • 3/4 oz. Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
  • 3 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz. Cream of Coconut
  • A cherry, a wedge of pineapple, and one of those tiny umbrellas. (Seriously, do we have to explain this?)

Spend a long time in the grocery store looking for cream of coconut, until you remember it’s not coconut milk.  Combine all the liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker, or blend in a blender with ice.  Pour in a Tiki glass.  Add the garnish.  Remark on how much more dessert-like it is than the other drink.

And the Army of Drunks original Blue Hawaiish™ Cocktail

  • 3/4 oz. Light Rum
  • 3/4 oz. Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
  • 3 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1/2 oz. Cream of Coconut
  • 1/2 oz. Sweet & Sour Mix
  • A cherry, a wedge of pineapple, and… blah blah blah…

Combine all the ingredients in a thingie.  Pour into mouth-hole.  Strum ukulele.
