It didn’t take long for savvy merchants to rush out an array of Charlie Sheen-themed offerings.
“Need to dull the pain of the train-wreck you can’t look away from? 1800 Tequila has created the ‘Tiger’s Blood’ shooter in Sheen’s ‘honor,’ ” a news release from the beverage label helpfully notes. Here’s the recipe: Mix 2 oz. 1800 Select Silver Tequila (100 proof version), 2 oz. tomato juice, a splash of lime juice, 2 dashes of hot sauce, 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce, a pinch of celery salt and a pinch of black pepper. Rim shot glasses with salt, crushed black pepper and crushed red pepper. Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice and strain into shot glasses. Scream “WINNING!” and slam.
Ok, we added that last part.
Similarly eager to cash in on the meltdown is a sushi restaurant in Scottsdale, Ariz., which has added the “Winning” Charlie Sheen roll to the menu.
“We wanted to do something special to honor Sheen,” said Greg Donnally, co-owner of Geisha A Go Go. “He has his ups, downs, his highs and lows and one never knows what he’ll do next. That’s where we got the inspiration for the ‘Winning’ Roll; it will truly be a Russian roulette, surprising the guest every time it’s ordered.”
Then there’s the Lifetime Achievement award bestowed on Sheen by a dating service called SeekingArrangement.com.
“Charlie epitomizes the Sugar Daddy lifestyle,” said SeekingArrangement.com Founder and CEO Brandon Wade. “We are honored to offer him our first Lifetime Achievement Award and look forward to extending him the full benefits of our website. He will now have access to more Sugar Babies than he could possibly handle.”
Just what he needs.
