Whisler's has launched a menu of cocktails inspired by the films of Quentin Tarantino, including the 5 Dollar Milkshake.

Ready to dip your toes into spring nightlife, but still a little sad about leaving behind a year straight of movies on the couch? Whisler's has something you might like.

The East Austin cocktail spot has launched a spring menu of drinks inspired by the films of director Quentin Tarantino. "Each drink imitates Tarantino’s distinct style — visually artistic, completely unexpected and expertly executed," according to a news release, "also what Whisler’s is known for."

(More like "Gulp Fiction," am I right ...)

The Tarantino homages include:

5 Dollar Milkshake: Inspired by "Pulp Fiction" and created by bartender Ian McAlister, it's a Tiki-esque drink with vanilla-coconut cream, Smith & Cross Rum, apricot and pineapple, with a milkshake straw and a cherry, of course.

Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique: Inspired by "Kill Bill" and created by bartender Sean Skvarka, it's a highball featuring Toki (Japanese whiskey), pandan leaf, Meyer lemon, yuzu and honey ginger.
