Anime 3000 presents The Speakeasy Podcast:
Drink #018: Sherlock Holmes,
On the Trail of Detective Anime Pt. 1
As part of our ongoing initiative to promote detective anime and manga we will be doing a series of Speakeasy podcasts about the wide world of detective works. This first part is a primer to the world of sleuths, gumshoes, private eyes, flatfoots, shamuses, snoops, and spies. We start with the origins of modern detective fiction in Japan and take a very brief look at the development of detective manga. We then offer some tools for the analysis of mystery stories and some titles everyone should know. There is no real schedule to when these episodes will come out but be assured that there will be more episodes like this one in the future. If you have any area of the genre you would like covered just let us know otherwise it will be our whims that dictate the course of this series. Until then . . . the game’s afoot!
And now your helpful bartenders at The Speakeasy present your drink:
- 1 1/2 ounces single-malt Scotch, preferably Laphroaig
- 2 ounces chilled brewed Lapsang souchong tea
- 1 ounce Honey Syrup
- 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients and stir well. Double strain into a chilled coupe.
