I got incredibly inspired by this weekends gaming related drinks so I decided to make up a few of my own, based on some of my favorite games and characters ^_^ Here they are:
Flicky with Chirp shots
1/4 Blue Curacao
1/4 Bacardi Razz
2/4 Fanta Lemon
Mix the Blue Curacao and Bacardi Razz, shake with ice and pour into a glass. Top it off with the Fanta Lemon.
2/3 Mango Liqueur
1/3 Pineapple drink mix (could also work with pineapple juice)
Mix the ingredients together and shake it with ice, then pour into a shot glass.
Jade (from Beyond Good & Evil)
1/4 Apple Sourz
Mix Apple Sourz with the Cointreu, shake with ice. Pour into a tall glass and top it off with Sprite. (If the apple sour doesn’t add enough green to the drink then add some caramel color)
Chocobo (from Final Fantasy)
1/2 Rose’s Lime Juice Cordial
1/2 Pineapple Liqueur
Pour together, shake it and add a slice of lemon on top.
Vampire’s Kiss (Castlevania)
1/2 Red Wine (or Port wine if you prefer it sweeter)
1/2 Passoa (Passion fruit liqueur)
Stir the ingredients together and pour into a small wine glass. I tied a black ribbon into a bow on the foot and attached a blood red flower on it to get that gothic romantic touch. If you fail to get the ribbon to stick to the top of the foot then it’s ok, it looks good when it’s at the bottom as well:
I love making drinks, and I had even more ideas for gaming drinks tonight, but my boyfriend didn’t wanna help me finish drinking all the drinks so I had to stop at these >_<
You know in addition to be very creative with your creations and also giving them a theme by pairing them with a video game you’re also a very good photographer! These shots look great!
Which of your new creations did you like the best? And how hammered did you get this weekend? :P
You know seeing Flicky made me wince a little.
I played a lot of that game trying to get all the achievements for Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection! That game is hard.
What’s that?… Yeah that’s right, I got’em all :P
I played Flicky so much when I was younger ^_^ And the Ultimate Sega Collection for Xbox I maxed out in a day :D I read online that the Dr. Robotnick’s Mean Bean Machine’s achievement was supposed to be the hardest to get (Yatta!!) But I managed without a problem ^_^ I love how they made you play all different games to earn achievements in that compilation :D The hardest one I thought was the Comics Zone, but then I read about the invincibility cheat you could unlock in the Jukebox ;D
Thank you ^_^ though anyone can take good pictures if you have a great camera ;D
I actually wasn’t hungover a single day! which is amazing cause I usually get extremely hungover >_<
My favorite was Metal Blade from Mega Man the first evening, and then out of the ones I made the day after probably the Vampire's Kiss, or Jade :) I like sour and strong drinks! And whiskey and wine :D
I agree with previous poster, I think you should take pictures for my shop. ;)
I simply bought the cheapest thing I thought could do the job (second-hand, naturally :P ). I think my photos are acceptable and improving but not that great, haha.
It does take a few minutes to set up the background and lightning and all…
If you need some pics for the site (japanspel.se) just let me know ^^ Photographing every single new game for your auction site is a liiiittle bit too big of a job though ;D
Your photos are already good though ^_^ sufficient for an auction site
They look so awesome, I can’t wait to try them!
You should definitely try the Vampire’s Kiss! it was kickass ^^ And I loved Metal Blade from Mega man
Love it Heidi! We got to try them at our next Girls Gameing Weekend! :D
Yay! We sure should! It was awesome, thanks for coming <3

Great work on the Flicky cocktail! I just posted about it on my Flicky-specific tumblr blog. :)
Thanks! I’m happy you liked it ^_^ Your Flicky Tumblr is really cool! I really love that game. I played it so much when I was a kid! I was really good at it too ^_^

Can I substitute Rose’s Lime Juice Cordial for anything else? They don’t sell it here where I live and I would really like to try the Chocobo’s one!
Sure :) depending on your personal taste you could either choose concentrated lime juice if you prefer it a bit sour or lemonade if you want it sweeter ^_^
Wish I was as creative as you… Lovin’ all the drinks! Especially the Chocobo one. Thanks for listing alternatives, as I, like Felipe, live in a place where having ready access to Rose’s Lime Juice Cordial is just not in the cards.
I’m gonna’ try it tonight to celebrate my last day off.
Keep being awesome :)
Thanks Kristoffer! I’m happy you enjoyed it ^_^
