Pacman Poignant Potion

So this last week I’ve been down with the flu.. sucks badly.. however during my days of illness I’ve come up with my own special cure, in drink form. I call it the Pacman Poignant Potion :D

It’s not for the weak, and it is an advantage if you like whiskey ;D If you don’t then it can be taken like a shot instead. Me personally I love whiskey, so I’ve been sipping away on this thing every evening ^_^

The recipe is simple:
1 deciliter whiskey (of your choice, I chose Jim Beam)
1/2 lemon squeezed into juice
2 table spoons liquid honey
4-8 penny sized pieces of chopped fresh ginger (depending on how strong taste of ginger you want, more ginger=more effective against your cold)

Mix the ingredients with ice in a shaker and shake it!
Pour it out in a glass of your choice, I topped it off with a Pacman lemon wedge and some Pacman ginger slices in the drink.

Mind you, this is a strong and alcoholic drink that works wonders on a bad cold, however most people might not find it very tasty as a party drink ;D Skipping the lemon and ginger will make it more easily consumed for a friday night ^_^

Game inspired drinks

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.
Chirp shot
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
1/4 Cointreu
2/4 Sprite
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 >_<

Girl’s Gaming Drinks!

During our Girl’s Gaming Weekend we’ve been having quite a lot of drinks, and what is better than gaming related liquid goodness! ;D
Thanks to The Drunken Moogle I found inspiration to many fun drinks! Here are some of the drinks we had this weekend, you can find a link to the original ingredients under each drink, however I changed some of them a little bit to make them even tastier in my opinion ;D

Metal Blade (Mega Man 2 Cocktail)


Metroid (second version, tried new ingredients)

Leechade (Bastion cocktail)

Slow (from Slow & Haste Final Fantasy cocktail)

I strongly recommend the Metal Blade (I used mango liqueur instead of pineapple, worked just as well) and the Bastion Leechade, where I made my own eggnog instead of using the Advocaat.
